Training within IED’s FabLab spaces enables students to work on both physical and on digital and technological self-production
IED Madrid has a proprietary and unique official programme in Product Design, which offers two paths of training specialisation: Industrial Design and Furniture and Decoration Design (Home Design) - and which brings together all the IED Group’s experience in design training. This is the letter of introduction of IED designers at international level.
Our training is characterised by the use of a fundamentally practical methodology in which the projects come to fruition; they do not remain on paper. For this purpose, we have all the necessary resources for self-production, whether physical, digital or technological.
Furthermore, the structure of the lines of learning allows the contents and strategic fields for the projects to be renewed and updated according to the current reality and market trends.
Students have the opportunity to complete their training with official internships in companies and design studios with leading national and international designers. This experience introduces students to a real professional environment and allows them to position their portfolio very competitively in their field.
