Characteristics and Aims

The Course lasts for one academic year, starting on October 19th 2015. The final exam consists of the presentation of a thesis project.

Full time commitment is required including mandatory class attendance, preparation of coursework and individual study.

The Master programme embraces the entire design development process through research into new experiential concepts, the redefinition of architectural solutions and by moving forward with new criteria for comfort and efficiency.

It’s a long process that demands a high level of personal commitment and flexibility, organizational and time management skills as well as a strong attitude for teamwork.

Transportation designers thus acquire constant stimuli for innovation in terms of both form language and function, allied with the understanding of engineering and production processes.
