Master ojectives

The Specializing Master in Color Design and Technology, held in collaboration with Associazione Italiana Colore, aims at providing advanced training to professionals to enable them to understand and manage the many technological and design issues, often across many disciplinary areas, typical of all those professional and research sectors in which the use and management of color are essential. Examples of such production areas include industrial product design, interior architecture, communication, fashion, entertainment and urban planning. Particular attention will be paid to analyzing and summarizing utilization, control, ideation, organization and planning through the use of color. Consequently, color is not treated as a simple attribute of objects or surfaces, but as a means of expression and design underlying perception and interaction with reality.

Professional outcomes

The Specializing Master aims to produce an innovative professional figure, widely in demand by the market, with advanced technical and design skills concerning color use and control and color design in research and in several sectors such as interior design, urban planning, industrial product design, fashion design and communication. At the end of the course, students will be able to professionally manage multidisciplinary aspects relating to the study and management of color and to work in a variety of companies in the fields of interior design, urban planning, industrial products, fashion, communication, paints and dyes.

Teaching content and organization

The didactic of the Master (400 hours of lesson) consists of two phases. The first is coordinated by Associazione Italiana Colore, and aims to train students in the technical aspects of measurement, control, digital reproduction and comparison relating to disciplines such as physics, optics, colorimetry, chemistry, psychology and perception.

The second phase, coordinated by Politecnico di Milano, focuses on the methods learned, which will be contextualized and experimented with in different color application and design areas such as interior design, urban spaces, industrial products, fashion and communication.

At the end of the lessons there are 312 hours of internships at professional companies and studios.
