MISSION AND GOALS

The Master course in Transportation Design offers people with a great passion for cars the chance to engage strongly in car design techniques. It takes students at the core of design world, making them learn about innovative thinking and how to approach, develop and finalize the design of a car exterior and a car interior.

Turin is the perfect city for this course, because it is the world capital of car design, and it was the birthplace of the most important design houses and car companies of Italy. The city offers the chance to get the whole network of Car Designers to come to IED sharing their abilities with our students for classes, lectures, workshops or for recruiting young talents.

The Master course in Transportation Design focuses its approach on simulating a real work experience. The goal is to present a full-scale model designed and sculpted by the students. Then, it will be presented at the Geneva International Motorshow, the world’s most important display of car design.

TARGET

Admission to the Master course is open to graduates in all design fields, as well as to professionals with at least two years of work experience in the automotive sector. Applicants can also be directly admitted to a second year’s major.

METHODOLOGY AND STRUCTURE

At the end of the first year, participants can choose the second year major: Car Exterior Design or Car Interior Design and User Experience. Both the specialisations receive a commission from a Design Centre for a concept car project, letting students become involved in what, to all intents and purposes, is a true work environment. They work on the same project, but focusing on different aspects. Both of them also deal with some mutual discipline and workshops, which provide in-depth analyses about Advanced Design and Interface Design.

Car Exterior Design students deal with all the different stages of the drafting and with the problems faced by a style centre, the final objective being the production of a full size scale model.

In the Car Interior and User Experience major, students focus on the interiors of the car using the most advanced technologies to develop interactive platforms and interfaces. They deal with planning and timing by facing a real case study, then they work on the design phase with the concept creation.

The Final Project consists in a unique mock-up joining the efforts of the students coming from both majors. 

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Graduates of the Master course in Transportation Design can work as Experts in multimedia products for automotive companies, design centres and firms active in the development of user interaction interfaces. At the end of the Car Exterior Design major, students can hold positions as Car Exterior Design Experts able to face design projects from the concept to its prototype creation.
