This professional figure will be able to work within companies in the industrial product sector, innovative materials, textures and finishes, lighting control and research into the sensorial expressiveness of bio-eco materials, and in professional studios and technical offices in public administration. In the professional studios of industrial design, museum and event design, he will cover the role of designing and directing the technical choices appropriate to the expressive and perceptive results to be obtained. While in professional architectural firms, he/she will support the architectural design of residential, commercial, public, recreational and sports buildings concerning the energy savings obtainable from finishes and for the activation of integrated passive systems for energy production.
