A masters refers to the completion of a graduate study program that prepares students to further their knowledge of a specific subject or advance their careers. The majority of masters are granted by state or public universities.
Design studies are often a fusion of engineering principles and design. Architecture, graphic design, retail merchandising, and apparel design are informed by design studies coursework. Designing on digital platforms and fabrication of product prototypes are practiced in design labs.

This intensive yet flexible 60-credit program offers advanced art students the opportunity to further their creative development and pursue a graduate degree in a two- or three-year plan of study. Within the M.F.A. in Fine Arts and Design degree program, students select a concentration in painting, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, photography or computer graphics and are mentored by student-selected faculty teams.
In addition to taking courses in art history and aesthetics, students work closely with faculty to prepare a thesis project in their area of concentration. Through "Seminars in Contemporary Issues," current exhibitions, artists' writings, theory and criticism, students and faculty make full use of the University's unique position near the vast resources of New York City's museums, galleries, and alternative spaces....

Study at the World's number one ranked art and design university for five consecutive years (2015-2019) in the QS World University Subject Rankings.
MRes RCA degrees are offered in four Schools (Communication, Design, Fine Art and Humanities) and are designed to provide early-career researchers with the intellectual, technical and professional tools with which to complete high-quality research projects, whether at doctoral level or within the cultural and creative industries, working across traditional sociocultural, disciplinary and sectoral boundaries.
MRes RCA programmes are delivered through a combination of: structured learning, comprising of lectures and master-classes by practitioners and senior academics; workshop classes based around a set task (a ‘brief’); tutor-led seminar classes where students will be asked to reflect on material that they have read or studied in advance; and project assignments that support the structured teaching programme. Students are taught by highly regarded and active practitioners who are also academically qualified to provide a critical context for their work....

Do you want to learn how to design human-centered products and services?
By tackling the unknown for business our students acquire the skills to learn from people, find patterns, use design principles, and turn ideas into tangible objects and devices. They learn to work in teams, to be user-focused and optimistic. Students are not only trained to work in a purely creative environment. The skills they learn enable them to think outside the box and solve problems for diverse groups and industries.

The course aims at elaborating the future of sports cars design through the analysis of current design trends and through philosophical thinking about the profound changes that the “car product” is undergoing.
The availability of new and innovative energy sources, from solar to hydrogen, will not only create new machines but also a radical shift in the transportation paradigm. Aesthetics and use of sports cars will go through a complete rethinking and a new vision is required.
The objective of this course is to create a new design vernacular for future sports cars through a semiotic analysis of the significance of sport and its relation with the human being. At the Ferrari and Lamborghini Museums, it will be possible to examine in depth the significance of sports cars in the very context where they were first created....

The importance of typography in design is evident. It can not be designed without typography, but it can be designed only with typography. Typography surrounds us and accompanies us 24 hours a day. It is ubiquitous and inescapable and visually interprets what is happening around us. In the current design landscape, typography has gone from transparency to occupy a leading role and have its own expression.
In essence, the objective of typography (both in its design and in its application) has always remained the same: to try to communicate in an attractive way any text, regardless of its level of reading. It is evident that the same typography should not be used to read a book to effectively signal an airport, but it is clear that the objective is always exactly the same; that the receiver understands the message as clearly as possible....

3. Short description
Unlike traditional design, integrated design is not a one-sided and unidisciplinary justifiable action, but in order to generate a durable and sustainable design solution, it uses a holistic, three-way assessment. Thus, in order to be accepted and implemented in practice, the design solution must be "sound" - according to the "ecologically necessary versus technologically possible" binomial - from the ecological point of view, be fair, equitable and timely, from the point of view of ethical, social and economic view, as it must be designed to meet a certain utilitarian function, and to aesthetically enrich and signify a product, a space, a service, or an individual....

Objects that ‘behave’ and ‘communicate’ have rapidly moved from the realm of science fiction to our homes, shelves, and pockets. Products are no longer static but are expected to interact, inform and guide. In a similar vein, data is now available in quantities larger than was imagined in the recent past. Patterns have to be seen and conveyed, often interactively in real-time.
We facilitate design and art professionals of the future, who can work in multiple contexts, make complex connections, lead and manage change. We facilitate and inculcate working with autonomy towards a clear self-position, be it as an entrepreneur, a design lead or as an independent creative practitioner....
