Courses in Cagliari
Three-Year Courses are post-secondary school courses with obligatory attendance, designed for a limited number of students who want to take their talent and creativity and transform them into a viable profession, as well as wanting to acquire knowledge as a means of constructing the personal, professional and social project for their own lives. The training aims at achieving three basic objectives: knowledge of technologies, of materials and of design culture, the ability to understand the market and its requirements and the ability to communicate the qualities of design.
The first year is devoted to acquiring the basic methodology necessary for students to adopt the right approach to creative work. In the years that follow, there is a more intense focus on design activities developed on the base of real client briefs, supported by the guidance of lecturers and by the supervision of consultants in the field in question. The well-established relationship between IED and the working world enables students to take part in events, seminars and competitions: often real working experience that culminates in dissertation projects. This stimulates the students to acquire critical skills, the ability to operate independently, the responsibility to make decisions and the ability to relate to the client, just as they would in their real professional careers.
The courses are addressed to newly-graduated students and practising professionals. IED Masters launch professionals that have the abilities to:
• deal with the complexity of the contemporary world
• consciously tackle the new requirements of production
• open windows onto potential new worlds
• interact competently in professional circumstances
These advanced study program with flexible curricula are designed to cater for the increasing complexity of the labour market.
Semester and One Year Programs
They are intensive programs held in English that allow students to spend a semester (Spring or Fall) or an academic year (“One Year” option) abroad in fashion and design programs in the Italian capitals of art and innovation. Semester programs are open to current students, graduates and people seeking to define or acquire new skills and perspective and offer study abroad students the opportunity to work directly with industry professionals as part of their academic experience and professional development. IED facilitates students spending a semester or academic year abroad by facilitating credit transfer in collaboration with the student’s home institution. Currently Semester Program options are available at IED Milano and IED Firenze.

Evening attendance from a minimum of one to a maximum of five days a week, duration from one to nine months, the restricted numbers and the fact that the lecturers are all practising professionals are just some of these courses’ distinctive traits.
