The Master courses promote a multidisciplinary approach and the exchange of knowledges, combining study and research with practical work and organising extracurricular activities.
Through this page we want to present you a preview of your future educational pathway during the Master courses in Interior Design, in English at IED Milano, and in Exhibit Design, in Italian at IED Roma. Here we tell you the stories of the students that preceded you, their projects and experiences and the people they met.
Enjoy the trip!
Final Project in collaboration with Kartell Museum
The students of the Master course in Interior Design at IED Milano presented their concepts to Kartell Museum, developing experience journeys and interactions with virtual reality technologies.
Amazon Innovation Award
Amazon launched a contest asking the students to redesign its workspaces according to the employees’ needs. Following this briefing, a group of students – Urte Berukstyte, Francesca Gobbo, Monika Petraityte, and Ankita Sabharwal – coming from Lithuania, Italy, and India, developed Limitless, a project aimed at creating a new working system for night shifters based on frugality, resource optimization & self-sufficiency. The main idea was to improve the well-being of employees taking care of several activities, such as napping and gaming and providing services like fresh food corners, in order to minimize sleep, metabolic and social problems. Furthermore, they redesigned the static working spaces, transforming them into modular, scalable and flexible stations, easily adaptable to any kind of environment. This project won the contest and brought the group to Amazon Seattle, where the students had the chance to visit the headquarter, meet the staff and present their idea in front of prominent personalities.

During the Master course, IED Milano students had the opportunity to visit the Innovation Center at Pioltello, within the 3M Italia Building. The company and the building itself are renowned examples of innovation and research in the fields of sustainability and technology. Read more.
master tips: how to design
Giorgio Grandi, Coordinator and Teacher of the Master course in Interior Design at IED Milano, explains the main feature of the programme: project works based on real briefs carried out in collaboration with companies.
project in collaboration with febal
Some students of the Milan Master course have developed for FEBAL a project having the aim of giving the kitchen a playful, funny aura, enhancing its personalization and dynamism, making it a functional place for different occasions. The great adaptability of the space is mainly due to the “play panel”, that can be adapted to different types of objects, transforming Play Kitchen into a home office space, a corner for children, or a more traditional one with cooking tools.
features of the first level master course in interior design at ied roma
Read the presentation of the course by the Coordinator, Giuseppe Pasquali:
“Because of its features, the course is a real accelerator for job placement, and also a possibility of re-directing the professional profile for those who already have the job’s basic tools, thanks to a profession’s reinterpretation and updating.
The combination of Product Design, Interior Design and Landscape Design creates the habitat people live and work in. To best deal with these issues, you need to know about history, art, sociology, psychology, material sciences; you have to comply with regulations, unravel in the increasingly complex world of implants and new technologies, and in the end satisfy the innumerable functional and emotional needs of buyers. Learning to combine so many different elements in one project requires a great deal of passion, determination, and continuous research into oneself.”
from the master course to the job market
Career Service supports students in their contacts with the world of work through relationships with companies, agencies, freelancers, and a customised activity of tutoring. During their path, students can take advantage of a bespoke activity of support and monitoring. They also have the possibility to meet external companies and participate to selection interviews for activation of internships or collaborations once the study path is over.
Moreover every year IED organises the Career Days: targeted meetings with companies and agencies aimed at the selection and search of profiles to join their teams. Students have the chance to present their own works highlighting their motivation, creativity and aspirations.
