The IED Master’s academic programs are mainly held at the Altamira Palace on calle Flor Alta, at the center of Madrid. The Istituto Europeo di Design in Madrid perfectly combines its historical character with innovation and high technology with the goal of offering students unique facilities, spaces and services for learning about design and communications. The classrooms, especially designed for our programs’ different specialties, are equipped with all the necessary elements for putting students’ acquired knowledge into practice.
Both buildings are equipped with Wi-Fi, multimedia labs, specific classrooms for 3D design, a rendering farm, fashion, workshops with sewing machines, looms, mannequins, irons, serigraphy labs and modeling labs for creating models and prototypes. The photographic platform, with an area of over 100 m2, is equipped with the necessary material for students to document their design proposals, conducting professional photography sessions and experimenting freely with sophisticated equipment.
At the IED Master, we strongly believe in a transversal education, which is why we have established a space for unique creation, the MDI Lab, for the Masters of Design and Innovation. A space that answers to students’ needs and adapts to their schedules a creative laboratory shared by the various educational programs, where students can study, research, interact and work on their own projects. Why? Because what could be more stimulating and inspiring than a space for transversal creation?
In this space, all different kinds of profiles coexist and generate very diverse synergies: Industrial, graphic, interior and fashion designers, cooks, engineers, architects, photographers, advertisers, art directors or creative directors. Without a doubt, the results of this type of interaction are very rich in nuances, origins and innovation, long-lasting and more meaningful within society.
All of our students come from not only different professional disciplines, but also different countries: India, Colombia, Peru, Costa Rica, Mexico, Venezuela, Russia, Estonia, Brazil, Lebanon, Ecuador, Jamaica, United States, Sweden, Belgium, Jordania, Turkey, Italy, Spain...
