The European Master of Contemporary Photography is, at present, the most ambitious training proposal in the field of art photography and aims to become meeting point for artists and professionals, enriching this field in Spain.
Practical and innovative, it is a unique programme based on the excellence of its faculty (Martin Parr, Simon Roberts, Joan Fontcuberta and Andreas Müller-Pohle, among others). It emerged on the basis of the premise that there exists a European conceptual and creative identity, which can and should be an important reference point in the fields of academia, culture and the art market. In this sense, the participation of students from a range of continents is especially interesting and enriching.
In consequence, the European Master of Contemporary Photography is based on three main pillars:
• International nature, with a special focus on the European realm.
• The excellence of the faculty.
• A focus on the production of an artistic project.
Nowadays, the term Healthcare indicates a process that requires to create a new complex and multifactorial system in which technological factors, organizational, and human dimensions must find a balanced mix to provide safe and high quality care for patients. This also requires clinically effective and well-designed medical devices, as well as effective and reliable healthcare services based upon innovative technologies and systems, and the related organizational models to be implemented.
In the last 20 years the technological development of biomedical devices has reached an enormous progress, in terms of high performance and reliability, and also for safety and quality. Today medicine involves the use of many equipment and devices for the diagnosis, therapy and rehabilitation and to support the correct clinical decision or the best treatment. Healthcare industry is requiring this multidisciplinary approach and know-how.
The Specializing Master Product Service System Design for Healthcare aims at providing the students with the fundamentals for designing biomedical devices, starting from the basics of methodologies and technologies for the measurement of physiological signals in clinical and home care applications.
Thanks to the proposed educational activity in the areas of:
the main career opportunities with a strong orientation to the USER Centred Design and product innovation, process and service with leading-edge technologies, are expected in the following areas:
The Specializing Master grants 62 CFU, equivalent to 62 ECTS. Upon completion, students earn a Politecnico di Milano first-level Specializing Master diploma.
The training modules are designed to meet the need for an international panorama of growing competitiveness in which the designer should be able to increase the product value by generating innovations thanks to the technology available.
The mostly used devices will be analyzed and presented during the course. Standards, norms and reference services are another fundamental part of the Specializing Master providing the reference framework for how to develop devices and products for healthcare. Design Methods and Ergonomics will be also presented as reference methodologies in designing innovative product-service systems in healthcare, as well as to support methodologically and with reference data the design of new systems. For a better understanding and participation, visits to medical facilities (hospitals and laboratories) will be proposed.
A final workshop to develop innovative systems will conclude the Specializing Master as practical demonstration of the achieved goals. A stage in selected companies/institutions will make the students to experience the acquired knowledge.
Attendance to the activity is mandatory for at least 75% of the course.
The modules will cover the following teaching areas:
Internship of 325 hours.

The Master course intends to form knowledgeable designers of the most advanced models of relationship between the product development processes, market dynamics and technological developments. It also intends to complete the training of professionals in R&D, marketing and brand management in the furniture sector, offering them a better understanding of design management skills as a lever to create a competitive advantage.
The Master is based on the capacity of Italian companies, working in the furniture industry, to use design as a fundamental lever of competitive advantage and a structural element of corporate culture. The core of the program is focused on the knowledge generated from the advantageous relationships instilled between the Italian production system and the network of professions involved in design. The Master sets its cultural roots in the “Italian model” of rapport between enterprise and design, while also aiming to develop new knowledge in innovation that responds to the challenges posed by technological, social and market changes.
The program’s structure takes on a systemic vision of the role of design in the furniture industry, teaming new fields of interest to the traditional focus on product development, along with the growing importance of brands and its tangible and intangible elements of expression.
John Cabot University’s Master of Arts (MA) in Art History guides students toward professional mastery of the materials and methods of art history with emphasis on first-hand research in the museums, monuments, and archaeological sites of Rome. The degree can be completed in approximately fifteen months of full-time study. The program has a dual focus: the visual cultures of Rome and the Mediterranean across time, from antiquity to the present; and the acquisition of technical skills for primary research. It also stimulates critical perspectives on the impact of Roman art worldwide.
Taught by John Cabot University’s international faculty, the degree program can be completed in three semesters of full-time study (Fall-Spring-Fall) and an intervening summer. It unfolds in three phases: a structured Foundation Year (Fall-Spring); a Master’s Exam (Summer); and a Thesis Semester (Fall).
Seminars and courses take place at John Cabot University’s campuses in the centrally-located Trastevere district of Rome and in nearby Roman museums, churches, palaces, monuments, archaeological parks, archives, rare book libraries, restoration labs, study collections, artists’ workshops, public installations, and contemporary art galleries. These venues of visual culture and documentation constitute the laboratory of the degree. Some courses involve travel to other parts of Italy—for example, to Naples, Florence, or Assisi.
