About us

Redefining design education

IE School of Architecture and Design redefines design education based on pedagogical and technological innovation,  project-based learning and environmental responsibility. In an international and entrepreneurial environment, the IE School of Architecture and Design seeks to bridge the traditional gaps between academia and the professional world and to connect architecture and design with the broader society.

IE campuses: connecting students online and offline

The School´s programs use both the Madrid and Segovia campuses and take full advantage of technology for online learning and the use of digital resources.

IE believes that learning can and should occur in many places and in many ways. IE has three campuses, each with its own distinct identity, but all inter-related: Madrid, the vibrant capital of Spain; the historic city of Segovia, less than an hour from the capital; and our online learning environment, which is constantly being expanded and improved.   Many programs also have residential periods in other places or visits to other cities to learn from diverse contexts and experts in the field.
