The bachelor’s degree in industrial design, sustainability, and digitalisation trains designers capable of designing products and product systems for enterprises in a phase, such as the present, of profound and fast cultural, technological and market changes.


The three-year course in Vicenza tackles some substantial issues for the future of production and consumption, such as sustainability, digitalisation and design for the circular economy, focusing on new product design methodologies and the application of emerging technologies.


In strong connection with the economic-productive system of the area and the other university courses in Vicenza, the bachelor’s degree thus aims to respond to the demand for qualified professionals to reinterpret in a contemporary key the aspects that have shaped the success of the Italian design model in the past.

The study programme includes different types of activities, combining design workshops and theoretical lectures with seminars and cultural activities.

In the design workshops, experience-oriented design activities are carried out under the guidance of some of the most highly qualified professionals at national and international level.

During the third year, an internship let students apply the necessary skills to approach design processes within a work team.



Having acquired design and practical skills as well as methodological and critical competence in the bachelor’s degree, graduates can continue their studies with a master's degree.

For graduates who decide to enter the labour market, the bachelor’s degree opens up a wide range of possibilities, in particular in product or product/service design either in companies or institutions, technology and R&D departments, manufacturing companies, or in professional design and consultancy firms working in the field of product, system and service design.

The course activities provide the knowledge and skills necessary to manage a design process as part of a team or independently: from knowledge of the different phases of industrial processes, to the development and production of a product or a large-scale product/service, enabling graduates to work with different production sectors and to manage design potential for new solutions.
