Master's Degrees • Master's Courses

During the first part of the course, participants will process the new aesthetic languages in tune with international trends and strenghten their technical and planning skills according to innovative technologies. After a first common part, students have the chance to choose between two different pathways: the Pathway in Interior Design will focus on themes such as residential interiors, home spaces, and the planning of interiors in retail spaces. The Pathway in Contract Design will focus on large scale projects in interiors such as Hotellerie, residential complexes, museums and theatre spaces. The acquired skills as project managers will allow participants to mediate between the company and the client and to manage all aspects of a contract interior project.


The Master Interior Design is divided in two semesters.  At the end of the first semester, students have the opportunity to deepen and refine their formative experience by choosing one of the two separate Pathways: Interior Design and Contract Design.

During the first semester, in common for all the proposed Pathways, they will acquire essential skills and project management techniques, with a special focus on the most relevant aspects of planning an interior design, along with classes dedicated to lighting design as well as upholstery materials and fabrics, all of which considered essential notions to successfully manage an interior design project.

Furthemore, research methods are key in the initial approach and analysis of international trends, supported also by the acquired notions in the history of interiors. The technical planning representation and the project visual identity is also essential and aided by specific design software learning.

The Pathway in Contract Design is more focused on strategies and steps involved in the planning of public spaces on a large scale, and interiors such as Hotellerie, residential complexes, museuma and theatre spaces.

The aesthetic approach is a prerogative of those interested in a career in the Contract Design field: this type of interiors reflect contemporary society and the ongoing search for “beauty”, comfort, and well being which translates in aesthetic codes and trends, all culminating in a precise and strategic selection of upholstery fabrics, as well as in the chromatic and stylistic choices.

The search and experimentation of new technologies are essential part of the course, such as lighting design, home automation, applied digital resources, and design solutions for contract companies.

Regardless of the chosen pathway, participants acquire a mangerial ability to relate between the company and the client needs, as to manage all aspects of an interior design project; they will also experience working closely with partners companies within the assigned projects, learning how to relate with the professional reality.
