For the a.y. 2014-2015, IAAD presents two Master Programmes: the Master in Transportation Design (4th edition) and the new Master in Digital 3D Modelling for Transportation design – from the CAS to the fundamentals for class A and B surfaces.


Turin IAAD Master Programmes structure

Transportation Design Master Programmes are divided into 2 modules:

  • Preliminary Module – 60 ECTS credits – 6 months (November 2014 – April 2015)
  • Master Module – 60 ECTS credits – 10 months (May 2015 – February 2016)
  • Language: English
  • Schedule: full time Monday to Friday – compulsory attendance

IAAD - Press conference at Italdesign Giugiaro

Press conference at Italdesign Giugiaro – presentation of Bachelor and Master Course thesis projects – Enzo Pacella (Chief Executive Officer Italdesign Giugiaro), Giorgetto Giugiaro (President of Executive Committee Italdesign Giugiaro), Walter De Silva (Head of Group Design Volkswagen AG), Marco Vendrame (VW Exterior Designer), Laura Milani (IAAD Director), Vitalis Enns (Italdesign Giugiaro Exterior designer)

The Preliminary Module is aimed at the transmission of analytical skills, technical and design specifications of the Transportation Design and is common to both the Master programmes. It is possible to be evaluated for a direct admission to the Master Module.

Master Module in Transportation Design

The main objective of IAAD master programme is to create professionals appealing for car makers and design studios; professionals able to make breakthroughs in the transportation industry and set the stage for the future of motor-transportation.

IAAD’s aspiration is to work as an innovation hub, a place where designers are trained in a continuous interchange of theoretical and practical didactic phases.

IAAD Master module is truly about design, but not only. Students are prepared to be active players in the professional contexts they will face once graduated, they must develop a critical sensibility towards the broader issue of the business implications of their ideas and how they relate to a brand image, to the long term goals of a company and to how to target customers.

The Master Module in Transportation Design is designed to train high-level designers who, once finished the studies, can start their own career.

Master Module in 3D Digital Modelling for Transportation Design

In recent decades, the professionals related to the automotive evolved and specialized. Due to constant technological innovation, it’s been possible to reduce the time of design and development.

Thus digital modelling has become an indispensable tool, not only in the stages of finalizing a concept but also in the early stages of design.

Among the new emerging professions is that of the 3D designer who, with specific expertise in the latest modelling software, is able to effectively support the designer in the development of the project.

IAAD collaborates with Dassault Systemes, a world leader in the production of software for the creation, simulation, analysis and sharing of projects in 3D, offering the only Master in Europe that deals with the modelling through the software ICEM Surf.

ICEM Surf is a 3D modelling software based only on Bezier curves, part of the Dassault family (formerly creators of engineering software as CATIA) and allows the modelling – both basic and advanced – of aesthetic surfaces especially in the technical quality of representation.

It is commonly used during the late phase of 3D modelling in the creation of aesthetic surfaces and for the construction of class A and B surfaces.

Faculty

IAAD faculty of the Department of Transportation Design is mainly composed of professionals coming from partner companies: Volkswagen, Italdesign Giugiaro, Pininfarina, Bertone, Fiat Group – Abarth, Alfa Romeo, CFR, Fiat, Lancia, Maserati, Ducati, Renault, Ferrari, Honda, Jac, Yamaha, Lamborghini, Piaggio, Chang’an Motors.

Giorgetto Giugiaro - President of Executive Committee with IAAD students
