Marangoni or Scad
This Forum has been resourceful in my quest. really great…
So here is my question. I finally decided this year that I will study ID, the schools I like the most in the USA, from what i researched are:
University of Cincinnati
Art Center College of Design
Carnegie Mellon University (information i read suggest there is an multi/interdisciplinary approach)
(They don’t have a ID program but i think the Steven Institute for Innovation of the University of Southern California is doing great things)
The problem is it is now too late to apply for Fall 2009 to all those schools, I exchanged a few emails with SCAD and I they would still consider my application to start in Fall 2009.
The other option is Istituto Marangoni in Milan , they have a three year degree, BUT compared to the schools i mentioned before their program looks fluffy to me. I mean what will i learn in a 5 months semester in a course called Hi-Tech Design? Or furniture design in 5 months? They do not seem to give scientific preparation or educate on production process.
I want to do things right, does this look right to any of you?
I don’t want to talk and talk and not have the know how.
The school has an excellent reputation for Fashion Design but i have been researching for months and can’t find opinions about the Product Design Course
I am not excited by the comments i read here about SCAD academics, and even if my education is the priority Savannah is not MILAN. I was thinking that i could do one year in Marangoni then transfer to a school in the USA, and that the European experience would be positive but i don’t know how compatible the programs woulds be. And i want to start in Fall(I am 26 and not getting any younger so i want to start asapi am changing from Law School. )
I would appreciate any comment about PD at Istituto Marangoni, advice or suggestion of alternative will all be greatly appreciated.
