About

Industrial Design at Polytechnic School of Design is responsible for the most common consumer goods as well as for new and innovative artifacts. It is also what lies behind the tools and the processes involved in their production and distribution.

Overview

The educational approach stresses the experience provided to the user and the broader meaning of the product as the designer must also control the impact that his product will have on a social and environmental level. The Industrial Design Master’s course at Polytechnic School of Design provides an overall experience in product design, from the preliminary concept to its refinement, from physical and digital representation to the communication of the project. 

Learning outcomes

The association with major industrial partners has the purpose of perfecting the education by providing students with challenging tasks that allow them to face the relationships with business and organizations in a mature way. Technical training is emphasized to build up solid professional groundings. The result of this work is translated into high quality education with a professional orientation.
