Quasar Design University in Rome
Campus Full time Part time November 2016 Italy Rome

The three-year post-diploma course in Habitat Design form designers in the following areas: interior architecture, product design, green architecture and open spaces, exhibition stands and exhibitions. [+]

Habitat Design The three-year post-diploma course in Habitat Design form designers in the following areas: interior architecture product design, green architecture and open spaces, exhibition stands and exhibitions. The course is active since 1987 and updated with each new edition. The course is recognized by MIUR as an Academic Diploma Level I. Who it is aimed at This university-level course is aimed at school leavers, from all types of secondary schools, who intend to dedicate themselves – to paraphrase Munari – to Art as a trade, in other words to a distinctly expressive-artistic technical activity, suitable for aesthetically and functionally improving the complex of elements that characterise the living environment, but without any town-planning implications and less involvement in bureaucratic-administrative procedures. It is an educational course that aims to emphasise the unitary character of the human environment and therefore of the instruments and skills required to ensure its care and increase its quality. Educational Objectives The objectives pursued in the Habitat Design course are: to guarantee to students the attainment of critical maturity, an understanding of the problems connected to transformational intervention on the living environment and methods for their most suitable solution; to provide students with technical knowledge and educational experiences in the fields of construction and production – artisan and industrial – for a speedy and satisfying start to their professional activities; to ensure graduates possess a secure planning method that encompasses creativity and rigour, both supported by an adequate grasp of the techniques of representation, both manual and computer-assisted, through the most advanced software available in 2 and 3D design and virtual modelling; to form characters who are expert in multiple and complementary techniques, all unified by method, guaranteeing, at the same time, a flexible planning attitude that allows the young professional to deal with the challenges arising from rapid social mutations and not just existing ones. Awarded qualification Academic Diploma Level I recognized by MIUR. Creative jobs The graduates in Habitat Design can operate in many fields: all those situations when the intervention is required of a specialist capable of guaranteeing aesthetic quality united with technical and functional performance, respecting the available budget and with a particular attention to detail. More precisely: fitting out public or private spaces, whether residential or for work; commercial locations and places that are open to the public; renovation, reconversion and rehabilitation of spaces, including for changes of use. The graduate in Habitat Design can draft plans and manage works for projects that do not require authorisation, that is, other than the abovementioned fittings of very sort: sets, exhibitions, temporary structures, gardens and open spaces, as well as designing objects of all kinds, including those that will be mass produced, by artisan or industrial structures. This is an extremely vast and varied operative field, that can allow unsuspected talents to emerge and also create professional opportunities in promising but largely unexplored sectors. As a professional, graduates can join one of the professional associations in Italy or abroad. Partners ADI, Abitare il Tempo, Fiera di Vicenza, Coni, Casa dell’Architettura, Ferrarelle, Barilla, Peroni-Nastro Azzurro, Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna Roma, Palombini Caffè, Ikea, Salone Satellite di Milano, International Academy Okinawa, Caritas Diocesiana, Polizia di Stato, Casaidea, Slamp, Conservatoire International des Jardins. Subjects The course deals with, studies and thoroughly analyses all those disciplines that support the project, providing it, on the one hand, with the necessary pragmatic dimension, and, on the other, with that solid theoretical-critical structure and cultural depth that are indispensable for cultured and aware designer. With this aim, the course teaches, other than the disciplines inherent in design, all those relative to construction materials and working techniques; the history and criticism of architecture, design and the figurative arts; the principles at the base of the visual languages as instruments and codes of invention; modelling applied to design. With these pragmatic objectives that aim at the acquisition, in a set time, of a solid professionalism, this course takes the form of a valid alternative to more theoretical studies. After a first year aimed at establishing and consolidating the operative method and culture of creative design, over the next two years students increasingly deal with all the technical aspects and experiences that will be useful in their profession. The three-year Habitat Design course aims directly at the result: the possession, on the part of the graduate, of professional skills and capabilities. Course location The course "Habitat Design" will be held in Rome at Quasar Design University. Via Crescenzio 17 A Roma(RM) - 00193 [-]

Bachelors in Architecture. Honours Bachelor of Arts in Architectural Studies Architecture is both a profession and a discipline of study, relating to a broad spectrum of career opportunities. As a profession it plays a pivotal role in the production of the built environment, bridging the technical and social, practical and theoretical. It is a cultural and artistic practice that is critically engaged with the forces of urbanization and technological change, the challenges of environmental sustainability, and the struggle for cultural expression. It involves the design, production, and organization of material culture from the scale of domestic objects to the scale of the metropolitan region. As such, studies in architecture interact with numerous related disciplines in the social sciences and humanities, as well as engineering, technology, and media. These studies may lead to professional graduate programs in architecture, landscape architecture, planning and urban design, as well as careers in related design disciplines, the arts, history, business, journalism, and public policy. Honours Bachelor of Arts, Architectural Studies: Two Honours Bachelor of Arts majors in architectural studies are offered by the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design in collaboration with the Faculty of Arts and Science. The architectural studies programs provide degree options for students wishing to study architecture as part of a liberal arts education. The programs serve as an introduction to the discipline of architecture, focusing on the state of the art, current issues and emerging practices, all considered from critical, theoretical and historical perspectives. Studio courses in design and visual communications provide opportunities to learn practical, formal and analytical skills, and are augmented by advanced courses in allied design arts, such as landscape, furniture, graphic, and stage design. The Architectural Studies Major Program allows a choice between concentrations in architectural design or in history, theory, and criticism. The architectural design concentration is intended for students wishing exposure to architectural design within a broad liberal arts education while the history, theory, and criticism concentration is intended for students wishing a broad interdisciplinary education in architectural studies but not wishing to pursue design. Introductory courses begin at the first-year level and lead into a sequence of courses in architectural design and representation, history, theory and technology. Emphasis is placed on advanced theory and interdisciplinarity, since contemporary architecture is inexorably tied to knowledge and practice in urbanism, environmental studies, literature, media, cultural theory, art, science and technology, as well as philosophy, economics and political science. This program could be combined with a major in another discipline, for example fine art, urban studies or book and media studies. Graduates who have completed this program and have a BA degree may apply to graduate professional programs in architecture. Toronto (St. George) campus [-]
