IED – Istituto Europeo di Design Milan

Introduction

The cradle of design and industry.

At the heart of a metropolitan area that bears comparison with London and New York, Milan is for the whole world a synonym for art, industry, finance, design and fashion.

Artists of the calibre of Leonardo and Bramante worked in Milan, and four centuries later, Marinetti and Boccioni, founders of the Futurist Movement.

More recently, celebrated architects and designers, such as the Castiglioni brothers, Magistretti and Zanuso, and fashion designers like Armani and Versace, to name just a few, made Milan the world centre of fashion and design.

Art, science, industry and finance are the cultures at the root of this city pragmatism and of its creative and entrepreneurial spirit.

It is no coincidence that our school was born in Milan, drawing the inspiration for its teaching methods from the know-how, the thinking and the innovation so typical of Milan hinterland and its history.

Designing both goods and services for industry and with industry is the vocation of IED Milan, where design in all its ramifications is taught and practised.

For years, our students have been distinguishing themselves professionally, nourishing both the Made in Italy phenomenon and production in their countries of origin with their creativity and competence.

IED owes its establishment in 1966 to the intuition of its President Francesco Morelli. Through time, it has become a 100% Made in Italy international network of excellence, operating in the fields of training and research, in the disciplines of Design, Fashion, Visual Communication and Management.

Above all, IED is an evolving educational system with capability and dedication to reinventing itself on a daily basis. Its mission is widespread and clear: to offer young creatives a thorough training – both theoretical and practical – and hand them the ‘Design Knowledge and Mindset’ that will accompany them throughout their lives.

IED is far more than a school: thanks to its unwavering commitment to innovation, it is the melting pot where new generations of professionalism are constantly unfolded.

IED is a powerhouse of ideas that develop creativity through its range of:

  • undergraduate courses

  • advanced training courses
This school offers programs in:
