The scholarships offered by the Turin-based University are three in all and are characterized by different types of coverage: one with 100% coverage (for a total value of EUR 11,700, covering the entire Attendance fee) and two partial, one covering 50% of Attendance fee (with a value of EUR 5,850 euros) and another one covering 20% of Attendance fee (worth EUR 2,340). The payment of the Enrollment fee however remains compulsory.
IAAD’s Transportation Design Department is considered among the best at the international level, and the city of Turin – as widely known – has always had a very strong automotive vocation as the home of Fiat, Lancia and Alfa Romeo, as well as of the unmistakable lines and shapes created by automotive design firms like Giugiaro, Bertone and Pininfarina.
This combination of factors means that the IAAD’s Transportation Design Department is the perfect context in which to train the experienced professionals sought by leading car manufacturers: people capable, through their innovative ideas, of creating new horizons for the future of four-wheeled transportation.
During the Master’s program students will have the opportunity to challenge themselves with a teaching staff composed of the best professionals in their fields of teaching and who, as a result, understand the real needs of a car designer in a competitive market. Another cornerstone of IAAD training is the close connection with the most important international car manufacturers who constantly monitor the best talents to add to their workforce.
