corporate partnerships

EXPERIENCE & DESIGN VISION

This allows our partners to discover the process of innovative design and working with the new generation of designers.
WHY ?

Through corporate partnership projects we teach interdisciplinarity based on teamwork, to resolve complex problems. Every year we conduct 8 to 10 partnership projects. Each of them lasts 4 months (1 semester), where students and the companies interact in several phases. The students are coached by a professional faculty member of The SDS, who will guide them through the methodology of design solutions.

 MISSION

The central mission of the partnership projects is to create a strong link between the corporate world and the students of The SDS, leading to mutual discovery in a common project. For the company it is a unique occasion to discover the process of innovative design and to work with the new generation of designers. For the students it is the occasion to discover the constraints of a professional project and to learn how to work in an efficient and relevant way.
