Why a partnership with the university?

The relationship between education and the job world is integral to IAAD philosophy.

Thanks to the collaboration with more than 100 companies, public and private, IAAD realizes study projects, theses, special lectures, workshops, seminars and internships with leading national and international companies.

IAAD offers companies the opportunity to enter into a business partnership of values and knowledge sharing, enhancing the culture of the plant, design and creation of cross-relationships between the university and the business world.


Main collaboration modalities:

// thesis project: assigning a real project to a class which will work on the topic and will be led by a multidisciplinary team of professional experts (professors)
// individual thesis projects: commissioning to a selected student a project of interest for the company, which will be studied and examined as topic for the final individual thesis.


// company visit and presentation: showing particular corporate processes and cases, sharing their history with future designers
// special lessons: telling own professional experience involving students in an open dialogue
// events, conferences, seminars, exhibitions: planning, realizing and taking active part to the many events organized every year


// scholarships: supporting the education of young talent through an economic or technical contribution
// internships and job placement: selecting students for an internship during their studies or at the end of it, evaluating their portfolio and curriculum vitae


// national and international tenders: collaborating with designers and with a multidisciplinary team of experts, counting on a solid network of contacts for the participation to European or national tenders.
