EduCativ Posted August 6, 2020 Share Posted August 6, 2020 For more than fifty years, the Istituto Europeo di Design has been operating in the fields of education and research in design, fashion, visual communication, and management. Today, the IED is a constantly expanding international network that issues first-level academic diplomas and organizes three-year courses, Masters courses, continuous professional development, and advanced training courses. The most significant milestones in the Group’s history include the foundation of the IED campuses in Milan (1966), Rome (1973), Turin (1989), Madrid (1994), Barcelona (2002), São Paulo (2005), Venice (2007), Florence (2008) and Cagliari (2009). In 2012, the Aldo Galli Academy in Como also joined the IED Group, and as of 2013, courses have commenced in Rio de Janeiro, the second IED school in Brazil. Since 1966, the IED has developed innovative and diversified teaching methodologies, focused on synergies between technology and experimentation, creativity, strategies and integrated communication, market issues, and a new form of professionalism. Thus does the Istituto Europeo di Design offer young professionals working in the fields of Fashion, Design, and Communication the knowledge and the practical tools they need to cater to the constantly developing requirements of the working world. The nexus between knowledge and know-how is the indispensable starting point for developing the cultural, creative, and critical skills and competencies that are the ultimate goal of education at the IED. Partnerships with leading enterprises are a fundamental factor in IED’s educational strategy. They feature both at every stage throughout the educational process and in the special events held to mark the end of every academic year. As a result of the IED’s constant, active relationship with the business world, more than 200 firms contribute in various ways every year to its student training programs. The faculty comprises experts and professionals who can teach applied skills and a constant stream of innovation. Each course is run in direct contact with and supported by companies operating in the fields in question. As a school with an international vocation, the Istituto Europeo di Design welcomes students with different nationalities and cultures to all its campuses. Some 2,000 international students – primarily from the Far East, Central and South America, and Europe – enroll in its courses every year. To date, the IED has trained students from about 100 different countries. Our graduates and the brilliant positions of responsibility they occupy in the creative professions and enterprise tell the story of the excellence generated by IED. It is a success story that has contributed to the achievement of the official recognition, for the majority of IED courses, by the Ministries of Education and of Research in the countries where IED operates directly. IED forms a truly unique network of encounters, experiences, people, and cultures. The students develop a deep sense of belonging and drive to innovate and share resources, ideas, and contacts, forge a tight-knit community. IED is also part of CUMULUS (International Association of Universities and Colleges of Art, Design, and Media), ELIA (The European League of the Institute of Arts), as well as a member of ERASMUS+ (Erasmus Charter for Higher Education 2014-2020 award and Erasmus Policy Statement). It also maintains links with various international Universities and Academic Associations, including ADI (Association for Industrial Design), NAFSA (Association of International Educators), and EAIE (European Association for International Education): a large group of institutions based in different parts of the world that completes and expands upon the possibility of academic exchange open to IED students.
