The ID4A Master educational aim is to train professionals skilful at developing high quality projects in the field that ranges over the architectural layout and the efficiency of the building components.

The Master has also the objective of completing the training of designers, extending their expertise and problem solving skills with the culture and tools typical of Industrial Design. This aim is sought through an educational course that integrates theoretical knowledge with design studios, vocational activities such as visits to companies and practices and meeting with professionals, and the mandatory internship in architecture and design practices or companies of the building sector.

• Design Strategy: study of new construction processes, design innovation management and the introduction of design in the corporate strategies of companies in the sector. 

A fourth area will be added to these: Design Studio, which will include practical work in design on various design themes such as:
