Master of European Design (MEDes) In the 2002/2003 academic year a specific 5 years programme was set up at the School of Design.

This international study programme, promoted and designed by the school together with a further six prestigious European design universities and formalized in an agreement signed by all university partners, entitles students to a two full years mobility program. Students can graduate only from their own universities.

In addition to the Politecnico di Milano the universities taking part in this programme are:

Aalto University
School of Arts, Design and Architecture HELSINKI, FINLAND

ENSCI - Les Ateliers
Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle PARIS, FRANCE

University of Aveiro Departamento de Comunicação e Arte AVEIRO, PORTUGAL

Glasgow School of Art GLASGOW, SCOTLAND

Köln International School of Design COLOGNE, GERMANY

University College of Arts, Crafts and Design STOCKOLM, SWEDEN

6 students are selected for this programme of excellence from all those enrolled on the 2nd year of the Laurea programmes in Industrial Product Design, Interior Design and Communication Design.

Candidates for the MEDes programme carry out two study periods at two partner universities:
• one in the 3rd year of the level I Laurea;
• the other in the 1st year of the Laurea Magistrale.

The choice of university will be made based on student preferences and the Board of Medes during the compulsary workshop organised in March of each year.
