The Undergraduate Degree Programme in Industrial Design and Multimedia offers courses and activities related to product and communication design. This study plan equips students with the necessary skills required to independently tackle the creative and design processes.

The curriculum includes different types of educational activities, combining design studios with theoretical lectures, workshops, seminars, internships, and cultural initiatives.

The workshops provide experience in the field of product design, graphic design, communication design, and in media and interior design. These applied design studios are held by some of the most qualified professionals at national and international levels. Students have access to fully-equipped IT, photography, pattern-making, and prototyping labs.

The internship within a production and service company, in Italy or abroad, also greatly contributes to the students’ personal development in design.

The Undergraduate Degree Programme in Industrial Design and Multimedia finally ends with the presentation of a thesis in design. Once in possession of a critical education, as well as advanced theoretical and practical skills, graduates will be qualified to begin professional activities or pursue further studies with a graduate degree programme.
