The programme aims at defining a designer that is ready to experiment in the emerging contemporary fields that define today’s international research, such as Energy, Environment, and Individual and Social Health. The formed designer will also be an innovative asset to companies, well aware of today’s social issues and able to speak to the heart and minds of people — with the help of the most advanced technical resources. The designer is responsible for the “formation” and “information” of the public in order to find opportunities to become a visual and multimedia communication designer, but also manager in communication, art direction or director of user experience.
The communication design track focuses on access to knowledge through visual communication tools. While exploring the features of Italian communication design history, it addresses the major contemporary issues. The aim is to develop design skills in the field of information and interaction design and to train competent and aware designers who can deal with current major themes with a critical eye.
Data visualisation, promotion of environmental and cultural resources, signage and environmental communication, complex narratives, visual identity, interface and user experience design – in close relation with the product and interior design tracks – are addressed through systemic design approaches involving the designer as the actual director of communication.
The training of communication designers is supported by dedicated labs (photography, multimedia, and printing), in which to experiment with technology by using design tools and in collaboration with experts from other fields, to address crucial issues in the areas of information design, paper and digital publishing and motion graphics.
Graduates can work as self-employed professionals or in organisations and professional firms, manufacturing and service enterprises, study and research centres and public administrations, specialised publishing houses, documentation centres and archives, and organisations in the field of cultural events production. They can also continue their studies with a PhD.
Three years after graduation, around 90% of graduates are employed, also following post-graduate internships.
