Teaching color and color science: the experience of an international master course
  DOI :  10.2352/ISSN.2470-1173.2020.15.COLOR-165  Published OnlineJanuary 2020

There are not many international courses that teach color science applied to non-technical fields. Here, we want to present the experience from a master course organized by Gruppo del Colore – Associazione Italiana Colore and Politecnico of Milano: the Master in Color Design & Technology. It has the aim of training students in the use of color mainly for design purposes, and color science and colorimetry have a big role in the program. The Master is organized in three main phases: Fundamentals, Project Works and Internship. The first part is a series of lectures and frontal lessons that gives to the students the theorical and technical bases to be used in project works practical applications of and internship. In fact, in the second and third parts students are asked to design and develop different applicative design projects. After the first part of Fundamentals training, students will be able to manage disciplines such as colorimetry, visual perception, physics, chemistry, optics and psychology, to build up their future professional career in different fields.
