L’École de design Nantes Atlantique and the University of Nantes have officially signed an association agreement.
L’École de design will thus strengthen the existing collaborations and joint programs with several entities of the University (Polytech Nantes engineering school, the Business Administration Institute, the University Institute of Technology…) and develop new projects in the field of Research and Continuing Education.
But, this agreement also particularly highlights design as an interdisciplinary subject, applicable to all issues that require forecasting and envisioning the future.
The University of Nantes will offer us opportunities to prove how the evocative and creative power of design is a factor of progress that can impact all academic fields.
This association will further increase our international recognition. Being associated to the University is to benefit from a reputation of academic excellence. This should open many doors for the development and recognition of our school.
After Shanghai, China and Delhi, India. L’École de design Nantes Atlantique is about to open a new postgraduate program in design (MDes) taught in Sao Paulo, Brazil in September 2017.
