Projects that change the world.

As a designer, you will design spaces, furnishings and objects, rendering them contemporary, functional and innovative. Always a step ahead of current styles and trends, you will learn to interpret the society in which we live, helping to attribute it with a deeper significance.


The designer is a professional who creates contemporary spaces, furniture, and everyday objects that are functional and elegant. Anticipating trends, the designer interprets the society in which we live and help to construct its most profound meaning. The expectation is that our homes, cities, and everyday objects will be constantly renewed and improved thanks to the talent and intuition of tomorrow’s designers: of designers who graduate from RUFA. As the principal actor of contemporary style, thanks to the designer’s understanding of the processes and techniques involved in implementing a project, the RUFA design graduate is a professional with the ability to make an authoritative contribution, through their work, to interior architecture, product design, and street furniture. The most important techniques of computer-aided graphical representation and design (digital modelling and virtual architecture) are part of the professional patrimony of the RUFA-qualified designer, who as an all-rounder is able to collaborate both with the small-scale artisan and the large-scale manufacturer, creating everything from the one-off object to a complete product range. Since there are no limits to the fields in which the designer operates, they can also work as coordinators of events or in launching trends and styles.
Academy Degrees are equivalent to Bachelor’s university degrees.
