About

The Systemic Design programme at Politecnico di Torino aims to promote and further a design culture that place man at the centre of his social, cultural and environmental surroundings. The course in Systemic Design prepares designers capable of configuring and managing the complete industrial product design activity, with the aim of achieving “zero emissions”. 

Overview

The Systemic Design programme at Politecnico di Torino is one of the most innovative educational programmes at international level and is pursued in close collaboration with Kyoto Club, Club of Rome, ZERI/Blue Economy and other institutions.

A culture in which interest in innovation relates to a vision of the problems from a different angle and with a multidisciplinary approach to the production system, which is also attentive to the humanistic components.

Educational objectives

The current production model is based on procurement on a global scale, on self-identification with the products, on their continuous obsolescence, on perpetual competition and on having little concern about the generated waste products: a string of actions linked to one another that describe a "linear" activity model.

The future requires us to adopt a new approach to design and to production processes in order to obtain sustainable products. The Systemic Design methodology works in line with Nature, following Generative Science wherein the OUTPUT of a system is the INPUT of another.

In other words, it is a question of designing material and energy flows that flow from one system into another:

  • striving to reach zero emissions,
  • materializing a new economic and productive model,
  • generating a community that is strongly related and consciously connected to its territory.

The educational objective of the Master of Science degree program consists in:

  • providing a knowledge set and organizing a cross curricular work group, made up of faculty from single subject courses, in order to define the system of relations that a product sets in motion for the resources it needs and for the output is generates;
  • training a designer to configure and fully manage the industrial product design activities with a "zero emissions" goal;
  • training a designer who relates the interest for innovation to a broad vision approach to the production system, which places man at the centre of the project 

Career opportunities

The educational objective of the Master of Science degree program consists in:

  • training a designer to configure and fully manage the process and industrial product design activities with a "zero emissions" goal;
  • training a designer who relates the interest for innovation to a broad vision approach to the production system, which places man at the centre of the project and takes into consideration many human factors.

MSc graduates in Systemic Design consider the environmental issues related to products and environmental protection, bestowed upon industries with increasingly restrictive national and international regulations, as priority regardless of the issues addressed because they cross all human activity.
