One of the hallmarks of the IAAD. method is ongoing collaboration with industry leaders on joint projects. In meeting the needs of both the partner companies and the students’ educational objectives, these projects generate a doubly favorable situation: aspiring designers have the opportunity to work with industry leaders and at the same time the latter can keep an eye out for future talent to be included in their companies.

This system also makes it possible to simulate working conditions in a professional setting: operating under strict deadlines, correcting projects in progress following client feedback, working in teams and by objectives. During the Master’s programme, the emphasis is on presentations and design competitions: students are guided and supervised in the presentations of their projects and are supported in their participation in national and international competitions.

The programme’s lecturers are crucial figures who are the connection between IAAD. and companies. All are professionals in their respective fields of study who know the companies in their field and know what it takes to become competitive young designers in the job market. The lecturers offer students valuable perspective and guidance to help identify which of their professional skills need to be improved and perfected so that they can enter the working world as key players.

Why study Transportation Design – Motorcycles & Personal Mobility at IAAD. Bologna?

In line with the strategic decision to open the Bologna branch, IAAD. has expanded its educational offerings with the first Master’s degree in Design of two-wheeled vehicles, whether motorized such as motorcycles and scooters, or manual or assisted such as bicycles and e-bikes.

Emilia Romagna is historically a land of motors, known in Italy and internationally as a place where the culture of technology and passion for mechanics have been cultivated and developed, creating vehicles that move not only the body but also the soul of the rider.

In recent decades, several “outposts” have been strategically positioned in the region by international brands interested in reaping the benefits of the highly specialized cultural and industrial offerings in the sector, effectively creating a growing demand for skilled personnel.

Programme of the Master in Motorcycle Design

PRELIMINARY MODULE

The Preliminary Course will offer instruction in the fundamentals of Transportation Design in terms of historical culture, representational techniques (Design sketching, illustration, digital sketching), 3D modeling and design methodology, as well as specific courses in interior design, exterior design, and motorcycle design. It is intended for students who have previously taken design courses not specific to automotive design.

Each discipline includes an end-of-course exam. The Preliminary concludes with the presentation of a final exterior/interior project.

MASTER MODULE IN TRANSPORTATION DESIGN – MOTORBIKES & INTERACTION DESIGN

The Master’s course will cover subjects related to the design of motorcycles and scooters, beginning with the study of the style, volume and proportions of the bike’s body. Students will create design briefs from which to define a proper strategy consistent with the market and the target brand. The designs will develop from the brief, progressing through the stages of marketing, idea generation, sketching and rendering, to the final presentation of the proposal. 

Significant time will be devoted to designs in the area of sustainable mobility, with the aim of providing a design methodology useful for dealing in a systematic and structured way with the design of transportation conceived to be environmentally, socially and economically sustainable.

Students will also be engaged in making virtual models of their projects, supported by the modeling and rendering course.

Finally, students will learn strategies to properly organize the content of their presentations and portfolios to maximize their visual and communicative effects.
