Design Studies

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

Skilled design professionals are needed in many organizations to tool custom solutions for common problems. Because the design field encompasses a broad variety of environments and applications, specialists are needed in small business, large corporations, education, non-profits, and government.

Description

The Specializing Master in Strategic Design. Building new businesses and strategies through design is a 1st Level Specializing Master of Politecnico di Milano, designed and run by POLI.design in collaboration with MIP, the Politecnico di Milano Graduate School of Business.

The Specializing Master is completely in English.

Strategic Design is a design activity that concerns the Product Service System, i.e. the integrated body of products, services and communication strategies that either an actor or a network of actors (companies, institutions, non-profit organizations, etc.) generate and develop to create value. It is often claimed that technological innovation, cultural and economic globalization and the transition to environmental sustainability generate problems and opportunities. It is also repeatedly stated that the possibility to avoid the former and to exploit the latter requires the development of three core skills: visioning, sensing innovation, creating solutions embedded in new business models. It calls for the ability to design products and services whose success today anticipates what will be or may have to be, the norm of tomorrow. The social demand for a new generation of products and services, coherent with current socio-cultural transformations, and their sustainable development becomes an opportunity for companies able to operate in the context of this new design mindset. This unique meeting of design and company strategy: strategic design.... [-]


Master in Innovation-based Integrated Design

Universitatea De Vest Din Timisoara
Campus Full time September 2018 Romania Timisoara

Unlike traditional design, integrated design is not a one-sided and uni-disciplinary justifiable action, but in order to generate a durable and sustainable design solution, it uses a holistic, three-way assessment. Thus, in order to be accepted and implemented in practice, the design solution must be "sound" - according to the "ecologically necessary versus technologically possible" binomial - from the ecological point of view, be fair, equitable and timely, from the point of view of ethical, social and economic view, as it must be designed to meet a certain utilitarian function, and to aesthetically enrich and signify a product, a space, a service, or an individual.

The 2-year practice-oriented study course is providing students with a background in either design, architecture, informatics or engineering a contemporary transmedial interaction design framework.

This development implies great changes in our perception and thus also in our interactions and in our behavior. Space becomes transmedial and changes into a medium that can be read, understood and also lived and experienced.

The master program «Transmedia Interaction and Space» pursues a practical, experimental and critical approach with the latest theoretical, technical and scientific developments.
