Future designers, architects and engineers will face the great challenges of the ever-changing design and building sector at local and global level, in terms of competition, development and modernization.
They shall be able to develop new ideas in the field of real estate, by designing solutions that embed advanced building components and display innovative layout designs. In particular, the field of interest concernes temporary buildings and events, reconversion of buildings and building components design.
In this perspective, the Master in Industrial Design for Architecture aims to:
The Master course aims at answering to the ever-changing job market, that demands professionals able to work within contexts where multidisciplinary skills are useful and appreciated. The Master ID4A trains designers able to operate on different canvas and to tackle the challenges of the integrated design into diverse national and international realities of the building sector.
Lessons will be held in English.

Methodology and structure - Objective of the course is teaching the design methodology that allows students to get a quality combination of experiences by analyzing the contemporary consumer’s codes of expression and behaviors, the customer’s identity, current trends in design and materials technology. Students learn to develop their own expressive language and to enhancing it with their creativity. They create project layouts particularly accurate in colors, materials, finishes and lighting effects, offering new sensory and emotional experiences.
The main activity of the classes is developing strategic value projects, able to meet the diverse needs of the design industries. Under the guidance of a faculty, consisting mainly of professionals and designers, projects take place according to an open system, in which participants are invited to collaborate with Italian companies of international reputation and new brands looking for an innovative and sustainable design.
The program consists of four weeks of introductory workshops, aiming to examine the knowledge and methods of design students from all over the world, and three Project Laboratories of different length and increasing complexity. The projects simulate a real professional situation: brief, development and presentation.
The Master course includes seminars, visits to leading materials manufacturers and showrooms, participation at events (most notably the Salone del Mobile in Milan), workshops and interdisciplinary laboratories.
Final step the programe is presentation of the Final Project that comprises evidence of the journey taken and the knowledge gained.
Among the project partner companies of previous editions: Febal, Colombini Group, Rhizome, TVS, Jacuzzi, JVC Kenwood, Verallia.
This Specializing Master is organized by POLI.design, with the support of the Politecnico di Milano Design School and the School of Architecture, Urban Planning and Construction Engineering at the Politecnico di Milano.
The Specializing Master in Social and Collaborative Housing. Planning, Designing, and Managing the Contemporary Habitat was launched to meet the growing need for general knowledge and professional skills in planning, designing, and managing contemporary forms of living that are based on policies and choices of social integration and collaboration. Social and collaborative housing refers to construction projects that include offering living accommodations, services, initiatives, and instruments aimed at those who are unable to meet their housing needs on the market, either because of lack of adequate supply or for financial reasons.

The Planning Culture Specializing Master extends the experience of the Master Eventi D'Arte, an initiative of the Università Cattolica Facoltà di Lettere e Filosofia, under the aegis of its Alta Scuola in Media, Comunicazione e Spettacolo, organized jointly withPOLI.design, Politecnico di Milano.
One of the Specializing Master main goals is to teach how to plan and choreograph the moves needed to build a coordinated cultural event that can use today’s language to explain complex disciplines and values, reaching out to a broad audience. In order for that to occur, the project requires both a solid grounding in the humanities to frame it in its historical and conceptual itinerary, which is the province of the faculty from the Università Cattolica Facoltà di Lettere e Filosofia (School of Literature and Philosophy), and the design input that gives sensory shape to the audience’s experience of the installation, which is brought by the faculty from the Politecnico di Milano Design School.
Training is based on continuous dialogue with industry professionals and on constant practice to transmit the skills needed to build a cultural project. During the Master methods and tools for the design and project management intertwine, to provide updated models of creation and management of cultural interventions.
