The aim of SPD is to prepare each student to be a complete professional in their own design field.
The courses are divided into a theoretical part, consisting of lectures and external visits, and a design part for each teaching area with workshops, held in collaboration with leading design studios and agencies.
At SPD each student is followed individually by a teaching staff composed of designers, professionals from various sectors, and tutors. Many of the most important international names have given lectures in SPD, including Martí Guixé, Patricia Urquiola, Walter de Silva, Ico Migliore, and many others.
WHO IS IT FOR
Teaching is organised in workshops, laboratories, theoretical contributions, seminars and guided tours. The experimental research conducted in collaboration with academic partners such as Volkswagen, Beiersdorf, Poltrona Frau Group, Microsoft, Heineken, Alfa Romeo, and Alias is a central experience in SPD.
Milan is the world capital of design and fashion, the ideal place for young people and talent, with museums, architectural monuments, hotels and designer showrooms. A city where fashion, design, architecture, art, communication and industrial know-how form an incredibly close and available capital.
