Master in Interior Design IED – Istituto Europeo di Design Milan
This course is held in English language
Methodology and structure - The course reproduces a dynamic lab, a big design studio where students get used to follow specific guidelines, adapting their language to different briefs and working in close contact with several professionals. Theory is acquired through practice by taking part to workshops with companies and realising three main projects characterised by a growing complexity. Students learn to meet customers’ expectations and needs, helped by the fact that brands and service associations are part of the training and critical verifiers of their portfolio. Students also gain self-branding and self-promotion skills, and learn to present their project at best, handling every single detail.
At the beginning of the course, participants with different backgrounds acquire a common cultural base and enhance their design thinking approach, focusing on methodological aspects, i.e. the use of “the roll methodology”, the steps to follow once the brief is launched, how to approach a project with a company etc. Then, specific courses are combined with 3 main projects of increasing complexity investigating the most important fields of interior design. These projects simulate real professional approach and are structured into briefing, development and presentation. The Final Project, as well as the others, is developed in partnership with a company, giving participants the possibility to experience a professional reality. The programme also includes lectures with renowned design professionals and visits to companies, showrooms, events such as Salone del Mobile, and cross-disciplinary workshops.
The Master's course in Interior Design is aimed at graduates who have completed a degree in Architecture and Interior Design. Different backgrounds are subject to evaluation.

The Master course in Interior Design pursues an innovative human-centred approach: it’s not just about designing a space, but also what it offers to users. Interior Designers must be able to manage both technical strategic sides of a project, starting from an accurate analysis, and to provide the best solutions in terms of space enhancement and service design. They are asked to create spaces that convey strong feelings, combined with the right selection of furniture, lights, materials and colours. This original and wide approach encourages several companies to ask IED Master students to work on specific projects with the aim of designing an effective and meaningful user experience.
This international Master programme is conceived, tailored and performed completely in Milan, where the Made in Italy meshes Italian design system and where the most interesting and trendsetting events take place.
