Master in Advanced Design for Transportation
Duration: 12 Months - Full Time | Language: English
The aim of the Master Course in Advanced Design for Mobility is to teach designers how to navigate in the future, to evaluate new possible scenarios and to transform them into sustainable design solutions. In recent years we have witnessed radical changes in the transportation industry, primarily due to negative issues such as traffic congestion, pollution, safety, and our current economical crisis which is completely transforming the face of the global automotive industry. Given this situation it is no longer possible to disregard the new opportunities provided by design.
Admission to the Master course is restricted to graduates from IED and degree holders in fields of Industrial and Transportation Design or to professionals with experience in the field.
Students of the Master course in Advanced Design for Transportation will acquire the various techniques of two and three-dimensional drawing, with particular focus on software tools such as Alias Wavefront and Bunkspeed and will also learn to use the various technologies to test their ideas, exploiting the use of virtual reality in order to come up with highly innovative design solutions.
Students of the Master course in Advanced Design for Transportation will be required to evaluate new needs that clients will be expressing 10, 20, even 50 years from now, extracted from the analyses presented by famous futurists, scientists, technologists, sociologists, psychologists, even science fiction experts which will be contributing to the open-ended Master. They will learn how to qualify their proposals in constantly changing scenarios, establishing trends which will generate concepts for sustainable mobility in the future. This advanced design process must be an integral part of every transportation design studio across the globe. Some companies have been using it for years, some are beginning now.
* Advanced Alias Studio Tools
Virtual modelling is a tool that designers use to transform a two-dimensional drawing into a three-dimensional shape. Alias, thanks to its flexibility, immediacy and intuitive controls is the most broadly used software in car style centres. Contents: · Complex surfaces · Model quality control tools · Measurement tools · Development of a car model · Thesis project support
* Advanced Design Methodology
A timeframe shift past known phenomenon will invite students to look in new directions for new information Teacher: Information about teaching staff available contact
* Basic Alias Studio Tools
Virtual modelling is a tool that designers use to transform a two-dimensional drawing into a three-dimensional shape. Alias, thanks to its flexibility, immediacy and intuitive controls is the most broadly used software in car style centres. Contents: · Software interface · Basic NURBS modelling notions · Rendering
* Bunkspeed 3D representation technique workshop
Virtual modelling has now become a valid alternative to traditional drawing, and 3D representation is now almost as realistic as photography itself. The workshop set out to introduce the class to rendering and real time visualization programs
* Design Sketching
Sketching is the most common technique used by designers to visualize their ideas and learn how to communicate a shape or concept quickly through fast drawing. It represents a basic technique for visual communication in a Design context. Contents: · Hand control · Intuitive perspective · Composition · Volume break down · Shading and contrast · Line quality Materials used: pen & paper
* Future Mapping
Identification of existing future scenarios –students willconstruct matrixes to classify, clarify, and qualify as many different scenarios as possible, using various frameworks such as time, applicability, diffusion, quantities and qualities in order to be able to monitor and analyze these phenomenon over time.
* Future of Mobility Design Concepts
The designing mobility of the future is a very complex issue that implies a number of very different design stages. The course objective is to create a concept to be presented after having completed each project stage. The future brief must be defined and will act as the basis for the work and the concepts chosen will be developed into a multi-media presentation.
* Human Design
Cognitive Science Artificial Intelligence Robotics Future of Health Workshop
* Interaction Design
Telecommunication Virtual Worlds Domotics Future of Communication Workshop
* Personal Vision Development
Identification of new future scenarios - students will be invited to develop their own opinions on future scenarios, transforming them into a real world need, then into a briefing, and finally into a convincing, multi-media sales pitch called a Future Briefing. Teams will be formed and each team project will be judged on “shock factor” (overly predictable proposals will be excluded).
* Sci - fi Design
