IE School of Architecture and Design
IE School of Architecture and Design redefines design education based on pedagogical and technological innovation, project-based learning and environmental responsibility. In an international and entrepreneurial environment, the IE School of Architecture and Design seeks to bridge the traditional gaps between academia and the professional world and to connect architecture and design with the broader society.
Students are encouraged to take a creative approach to architecture, think critically when confronted with a challenge and not be afraid to think outside the traditional boundaries of architecture and design. Diversity among our students and faculty, who come to us from all over the world, creates a rich blend of cultures and a broad learning experience. Graduates can aspire to work all over the globe and are able to consider the world as their town.
Our programs integrate the following four dimensions:
Vibrant Design Culture: The highest quality design education is the backbone of our School. We engage experienced, top architects and designers who are committed to teaching, as well as successful in their professional careers.
Lecture Series: Our special guest lecturers provide direct contact with leading international professionals. By sharing their experiences and engaging in open dialogue, our students are able to directly benefit from these experts’ knowledge and understanding of the field.
The Real World: Whether through blended courses that allow students to work and study at the same time, or our internship program, IE always seeks to relate what is learned in the classroom to the real world.
Become a Design Entrepreneur: Design, management and visual and verbal communications skills are essential for today’s professionals. Knowing how to run your own office, lead projects and teams or be an effective part of an organization all depend on knowledge, skills and a compelling vision.
