Program Overview

Program Description:
«As an entrepreneur I think Scuola Italiana Design is an important resource for its geographical area, an opportunity for a cultural and professional growth for young people and companies. For me, it was an instrument to try to make true a little dream that I gave up on the bottom of the drawer for a long time: become a designer.» (Alessandro Barison, graduated at SID in 2009) Developing of product prototypesThe One-year Master in Creative Design allows the students to experiment with the practice of their profession as creative product designers. SID graduates in Creative Design are able to design, develop and communicate their projects of product design, with extended skills into visual, packaging and web design. They also have a global vision of the market and a wealth of professional experience gained by designing directly for companies. The class group turns into a real professional studio in which the students, assisted by instructors, develop different projects on themes assigned by client companies with their needs related to the current industrial world.

Scuola Italiana Design graduates are specialized in product design; however the skills they acquire enable them to work in the fields of graphics and web design due to a solid, mature cultural and professional background. They can be hired in design offices of companies, professional design studios, or become freelance creative designers.

The Master’s year consists in 3 ten-week-long trimesters. For each trimester, every student will develop projects on themes assigned by 2 companies. At the end of the Master each student, coordinated by four different instructors, will have carried out projects for 6 different companies. Every project must be completed within 10 weeks – a deliberately short period in order to accustom the student to the speed of development and on-time delivery of projects. These values, together with skills in designing, are defining characteristics for the type of highly professional expert that the market demands nowadays.
Setting Description:
Each student, in collaboration with colleagues and coordinated by an instructor, expresses his/her professional skills as if he/she were in a real professional design studio within an atmosphere that fosters dialogue and the exchange of experiences, developing individual projects and their necessary related files for the final presentation. The activity is performed by applying research, creative and design methods of Scuola Italiana Design. Each student presents their own projects directly to the managers of the companies. This type of direct contact helps students foster a positive experience with the types of professional figures they will encounter in future job interviews.
Cost:
The annual enrolment fee to the One-Year Master in Creative Design is: - for citizens of countries belonging to the European Union € 4,600 (VAT included); - for citizens of countries not belonging to the European Union € 5,500 (VAT included).
