2 Master Yacht Design Master of Politecnico di Milano designed by Consorzio With the support of: Sponsor: AS.PRO.NA.DI. The University Master program in Yacht Design, organized by the Design Faculty of the Politecnico di Milano in collaboration with the University of Genoa and has been set up to meet an intense demand for training in the recreational boat sector, which requires professionals with a post-graduate specialization. AIMS The program provides the tools required to handle the process of designing and building sailing and motor craft. THE SAILING SECTOR The sailing sector shows a strong professional vocation both on necessary competences for designing leisure boats and on capacities for managing the various phases of production planning. MARKET Looking at the past 5 years data analysis on pleasure craft market trends, it can be observed that there was a contraction in product and sales volume that affected Italian craft market. However the mega-yacht sector, which is a sector where Italian shipbuilding preserves an important role at international level, is demonstrating of still holding strong. Another emerging factor is that design culture is well-established in the Italian context and benefits so much from international appreciation that the competences in design, organization and project management are now directed towards those geographical areas which are being more interested in growth and development factors from an industrial and market point of view. ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS The Master in Yacht design is intended for graduates in Architecture, Engineering, Industrial Design and Economics, or anyone holding a university degree in a related discipline. The maximum number of students admitted to the Master is 30. GOALS This master s degree program provides the skills needed to manage the design and construction process of a sailboat or a motoryacht. DURATION The master has an overall duration of 826 hours divided in frontal lesson and internship, which will allow students to reach a total of 60 university training credits. The internship has a duration of aproximately 3 months. The Master is scheduled to start in March, following the authorization from University. 2 MYD - Master in Yacht Design

3 TEACHING PROGRAM A boat, whether sailing or motor, is a complex product which integrates different systems ranging from that of propulsion to living accommodation, and other accessory functions. Every decision that touches on the technical setup (keel, fins, internal volume, motorization, plant engineering) affects all the other systems. A boat may be produced in series or as a one-off, using different technology and different materials. Interiors are influenced by trends and language, market competition tends to endow every product with a certain degree of innovation. The organization of the Master program takes this complexity into account and alternates class teaching nine training modules from different disciplines with design activities and visits to shipyards and companies within the sector, as well as institutes of applied research. The principles of each discipline are given, together with the tools necessary for the practical application in the design activities of what has been learnt. The various skills and competences of the course participants will be integrated in the work groups, which will be required to develop a series of work-projects. DIDACTIC UNITS The training course is organized in 9 Didactic Units, plus a final workshop and an internship: 1. Yacht Design 2. Design and visual representation 3. Nautical architecture 4. Shipbuilding 5. Onboard fittings and propulsion apparatus 6. Interior furnishings 7. Component and accessory design 8. Environment engineering 9. Empowerment PRATICAL WORK A particularly important characteristic of the Master program is the integration of different didactic modes: meta-design analysis; concept definition; practical design activity in small groups carried out in class. The workshops enable skills acquired in the didactic units, class activities and external visits to be put into practice in a complete project and are considered a fundamental part of the training course. Visits to research structures, production sites and professional firms also form part of the didactic activities. Didactic activities in class are supported by the various occasions for putting in practice what students have learnt in theory. An example can be seen in: - the long list of company visits to manufacturing 3 MYD - Master in Yacht Design

4 plants of naval sector and related businesses organized each year; - the practice exercises of physical modelling to support design activities and to integrate 3D modelling. - the practice exercises of small watercrafts contruction applying the most recent techniques of industrial production; - the opportunities for practising the study of group dinamics through experiences held on board. SAILING CRUISE TEAMBUILDING Teambuilding on board of a sailing cruise, allows student to live a new and engaging experience, taking subjects presented in class outside from the usual study environment. The educational metodology activates a direct process of personal and group growth amplified by the need of survival on board. Boating with classmates, allows students to learn the construction and management mechanism of a team, moreover it allows to acquire the skills needed to understand working dynamics of a working group. Self-perception becomes immediate in conjunction with themes such as trust, collaboration and effective communication. There are individual modalities aiming to create relationships and functional modalities apt to create support relations and trust to create professional and personal efficient relations. It is about living teambuilding dynamics facing concrete problems that need to be solved in group with the aim of reaching a common goal, of structuring an effective team work, creating a fast and clear communication net and to understand which is the real power of action of a group that can reach goals of growing complexities only when it is cohesive and integrates resources and competences. Following the sailing cruise, students will attend guided reflection and rationalization moments about the experience and will transfer what learned to the working reality. PROFESSIONAL OUTLETS Students who complete the program will be ready to cover professional roles that differ from those for which they were prepared by their previous training. Roles covered in recent years by graduates from the Master include: design assistant in professional firms, shipyard production assistant, production manager, quality control manager. INTERNSHIP The internship is compulsory, lasts three months and takes place in top design studios and shipyards. 4 MYD - Master in Yacht Design
