The work of the transportation designer blends conceptual and creative skills with a solid understanding of engineering, ergonomics and marketing principles. Designers are called on to envision progressive transportation concepts that fit a future scenario where cars are no more the unrivaled player. The Master’s program embraces the entire design development process and aims at researching into new experiential concepts, redefining the architectural solutions and moving forward with new criteria for function, comfort and emotion. The studio projects, organized in collaboration with major car companies, run through the entire duration of the Master’s, parallel to the technical training. SPD has a long-standing educational partnership with Volkswagen Group Design involving designers from the various brands - from Audi to Lamborghini – that take active part in the teaching activites.
The Master lasts 15 months (from October to December of the following year, with a summer break in August). Attendance is compulsory and full time. The total workload of the course corresponds to 1500 hours/student encompassing lessons, class exercises, final thesis/research project and individual study.
At the end of lessons, students finalize their research project in collaboration with the academic sponsor.
Post-Master’s internship opportunities are available for high potential profiles at the end of the programme.
