The revolution in digital manufacturing has become the cornerstone of industry 4.0, on the one hand, it’s creating new business models, and on the other, it’s becoming the standard in very competitive sectors such as automotive, healthcare and aerospace.

The creative industry and the industrial sector in which it converges, demand highly specialized profiles who understand this new paradigm shift. It is necessary to create new professional profiles that are capable of implementing digital fabrication technologies and keep track of the constant evolution that occurs around them and the possible projects that may arise from their ecosystem.

The Craft in Digital Manufacturing Postgraduate course provides students with the necessary knowledge and tools that allow them to use digital fabrication technologies in their future projects, shaping their overview of the process of digital and analog crafts and expose them to new design methodologies applied in the field of digital fabrication.

Objectives

The aim of the Postgraduate is to provide students with the necessary knowledge and tools that allow them to use digital fabrication technologies in their future projects, shaping their overview of the process of digital and analog crafts and expose them to new design methodologies applied in the field of digital fabrication.

  • Identify what type of digital fabrication technologies apply to the project or to the design process.
  • Understand how to work within an environment where both analog and digital industries come together.
  • Create bespoke products or services focussing on Human-centered design.

Methodology

IED Master school provides continuing training, qualifications, specializations and the chance to keep up-to-date with all aspects of design, backed by the rich historic and cultural heritage of Italian design.

Our strategy for the future is always in tune with social, environmental and financial macrotrends, and we keep a watchful eye on the changes that our cities and surroundings will need to adapt to over the coming 30 years. We believe that we can provide answers and solutions through design.

Our teaching here at IED Master is based on the four scenarios we consider crucial to face the needs of the future: design for sustainable development, design for new business models, design for new media and design for people.

Our goal is to train professionals who are capable of harnessing cultural values and design tools to not only overcome the challenges of the future but create and drive innovation. We want our students to take responsibility for their training path and learn how to steer it with the support and tutoring of experts and professionals.

At IED Master, we see the School as a laboratory where students can be innovative, enterprising and a driving force; where they are free to experiment and create.
