Hi, I'm English and studied BA Automotive Design at Coventry, and am now undergoing my MA at Umea Institute of Design. When I applied, I also applied for Pforzheim and was offered an interview, but decided to accept Umea as I was really curious about Scandinavia, having never been before. I think the Pforzheim focuses a lot on sketching and presentation, and Umea has a focus towards User Centred Design. The course so far has proven really interesting, with loads of sponsored proejcts flying around the school. The school has a good connection with Volvo and Saab, and it's really a beautiful place to live in the Winter. If you'd like to experience 2ft of snow and -20C cycle to school along a frozen river, then definitely apply! You won't regret it ... I've learnt so much more than at Coventry, and I've only been at Umea since August. Check out the UID website and have a look at the information about tuition fees for next year, and there are some good videos on there too so you can get a feel of how it is to study there. Good luck!
Hi. I believe this thread is pretty old, but still would take a shot for some guidance. I am an industrial designer and would like to pursue a Masters in Transportation, and as of now,I am asupposed to choose between SPD(Italy) and CCS(Detriot). Could someone help me out here? @Kalashnikov - I had been going through posts about IED, IAAD, SPD, etc. I assume you must taken a decision..so could you help me out too??thanks.
between spd and ccs.. id personly go for spd.. but it depends on whether you would like to work with the companies that they are tied up with .. so if you wanna design ford and gm cars then ccs but if you wanna design VW group of cars(audi lambo) then spd. also spd is a one yr and ccs is 2 years(i think) so if you feel you need the 2yrs to get your level up or not ..accordingly. CCS mean more tuition fees too. spd got scholarships going on 8 places too. im at IED torino doing the 2yr course now and feel its the best. hope this helps ciao
Hi, I graduated in mechanical engg. this year and I got admission at IED for 2 yrs master and at SPD for 1 yr car design tools which is intended as a primer to their masters. There is a lot of confusion about which school should I join. Kindly help me out. I have also heard that SPD students have hard times in finding a job, is it so? and what about placements at IED.
SPD has tie ups with the VW group ie.. audi lambo etc.. Whereas IED has links with FIAT group.. Ferrari Alfa.. etc. So that should be 1 factor for your decision .. 2 SPD is in milan and IED in turin.. and therefore the corresponding types of companies and jobs available. 3 Course of either are very different in terms of result.. ie.. spd masters is a regular sponsored project typically from one the vw group companies and 1/4 scale models at the end... whereas IED has final project sponsored by typically fiat group .. but also exceptions .. but a 1:1 full scale at geneva auto show. ..SO .. these should make u think... but personaly im in my 2nd yr now at IED and its not a dream place .. but i think its better than SPD... placements are tough for all colleges.. its your level that makes the difference
