Master in Industrial Design Engineering and Innovation POLI.design

The Master aims to develop professionals who are able to deal with the design and production process of large and small series industrial products, placing special emphasis on technological, production and cost aspects,without neglecting the aspects of expressivequality.The curriculum offered by the Master in Industrial Design, Engineering and Innovation combines the artistic and humanistic skills related to project culture and language of the product with techniques related to manufacturing technologies, materials and industrial costs. This way, it aims to respond to the need to compete in an increasingly competitive international scene, in which the designer is able to enhance product value by generating innovations (aesthetic and use) that take advantage of the possibilities offered by the available technologies. It is therefore of primary importance to develop professionals that combine creative skills with sound technical skills related to industrial feasibility of the product.

This Specializing Master in Industrial Design Engineering and Innovation at Poli.Design joins the artistic and humanistic skills belonging to design culture with the technical know-how that relates to production technology, materials, and manufacturing costs. It strives to meet the need to operate in a worldwide landscape of heightened competition where the designer can increase the value of a product by making innovations – in both aesthetics and usability – that take advantage of available technologies. The aim is to train professionals whose creative capacity is matched by technical expertise and awareness in a product’s industrial feasibility.

Because its faculty is made up of teachers from a variety of fields, from both inside and outside the Politecnico di Milano, the Specializing Master establishes a set of multidisciplinary skills called upon throughout the course of training. Cultural visits to foundations and museums, along with technical field trips to manufacturing companies, round out the training and foster the attainment of educational objectives. Many graduates from previous editions are playing leading roles in major manufacturing concerns or renowned design studios, including: Whirlpool Europe, Chicco Artsana, 3M, Polti, Cini&Nils Lighting, V12 Design, Studio Volpi, Studio Luca Trazzi, Serralunga, Rupes spa, Zinc, Design Group Italia, Toys Toys, Ditronetwork srl. Others have founded and directed their own studio.

Aims

The Master programme was created to train expert designers, who can develop a new product from its concept to production. The employment opportunities are:

  • working with professional firms which participate in the various product development stages, from concept to engineering;
  • working with manufacturing companies belonging to the sectors which make up the Italian production industry (e.g. house hold and professional appliances, lighting, furniture, toys and children’s products);
  • freelancing with enhanced skills to interact with the business world.

The professional role will be an expert productdesigner, with theoretical knowledge combined with significant experience applied to production processes. By achieving the necessary professional field experience, students can aspire to the role of product manager responsible for the development of new products.

Teaching topics break down into four main disciplines that, taken together, spread across 11 learning modules, the design workshops, and the internship. The Specializing Master grants 60 CFU, equivalent to 60 ECTS.
