Over the course of two years on a full-time basis, the Master expects to hone and develop the student's competence in terms of his/hes critical approach, analytical and methodological skills providing them with the tools they need to start creating their own innovative concepts; in other words the aim is to train these professionals who will have the sensibility, courage and competence to imagine and design the vehicles of tomorrow.

Target

Admission to the Master Course is restricted to graduates form IED or from private schools of similar area and degree holders in fields of the Design area. One may also request to be admitted directly to the 2nd year of the Master course if one is already provided with a diploma or a three year or five year degree in Transportation Design from a public or private institution that is equivalent to University level.

Methodology and program

The programme foresee a first year designed to provide students with the theoretical design tools required for the production of 1:4 scale models that will represent the final project of the first part of the Master Course.

During the 2nd year the students will be expected to perform as if they were in a real working environment, simulating the team work found in a professional design studio equipped with all the most innovative IT tools. At this final stage the Master course will actually operate as an experimental workshop.

For every 2nd course year a Style Centre will commission the Istituto Europeo di Design of Turin to come up with a project to develop a concept car.

The students will have to face up to the challenge and collaborate in carrying out this project, like a real team, handling all the various stages of project development and all the problems that a style centre has to deal with, right up to the production of a 1:1 scale model.
