The Montreal Studio

L’École de design Nantes Atlantique’s permanent branch in North America

The Montreal Studio is L’École de design’s international studio in North America. In September 2018, a Design and Entrepreneurship MDes program will open in partnership with Centech, startup accelerator of ÉTS.

MDes Design & Entrepreneurship Montreal: A one-year immersive program in the accelerator at ÉTS in Montreal

In September 2018, L’École de design Nantes Atlantique will open the Montreal Studio (Quebec, Canada) in partnership with Centech, startup accelerator of l’École de Technologie Supérieure (ÉTS), the top public engineering school in Montreal. The studio will pilot a new Master of Design (MDes) program based on a one-year immersion for design students in startups powered by the first French-speaking incubator in North America.

An international program focused on innovation and entrepreneurship

20 design students joined the program in September 2018, and the program is aimed at all profiles (interaction design, product design, interior design, graphic design, etc.). These students will then join one of the existing programs in Nantes for the 2nd year of their course and will prepare the Master’s Design degree under the same conditions as the other students. After this valuable experience working with Montreal-based startups, they will then come back to France where they will benefit from expertise and guidance to help them get their own business off the ground.

From June 2018, Julie Le Ster is in charge of studies coordination in Montreal.
