The Master of Science in Design for the Built Environment is a two years course.

Two different learning paths are now available for students enrolling from the a.y. 2019/2020.
After a unique first year teaching program, students have to choose for the second year between two different curricula: Exhibit Design and Digital Design.

The Master of Science in Design for the Built Environment trains a professional profile who’s able to manage product and system innovation in emerging areas, in which advanced design skills are needed, such as industrial production, evolved crafts, environmental design and outdoor/indoor design The innovative professional profile has been outlined according with predictable market transformation scenarios and, therefore, according with the demand for new professional skills in the field of digital design, digital fabrication, projects evaluation by simulation, product and process management, green design, evolved crafts, interior/urban spaces design, exhibit design and design for the enhancement of Cultural Heritage.

Designer’s typical methods and approaches involve a multi-cultural knowledge (creative, technological and scientific but with a concrete expertise in field of communication, representation and historical criticisms). Students will delve into internationalization best practices for products and services, taking into account design-driven aspects, as well as marketing tools and R&D methods, referring to some emerging issues such as the digital industry or D2C design and ethical design, that are transforming the conventional work practices.
The Course aims to provide a depth knowledge of the context of industrial and technological craft production, with the purpose to improve qualitative aspects of design for the built environment such as product environmental requirements and sustainable design strategies. The challenge is in a creative and technical approach, according to the product/service, market conditions and to the relationship with the enterprise culture and with innovative production processes.
