Sèvres, then Lyon, Bangalore and now Singapore... Strate Ecole de design is developing its teaching model in France and abroad by opening new campuses and courses. As part of the international Galileo Global Education Group, the school of design is convinced of the importance of design in supporting a country's development and building a better world.
À In Singapore, Strate has just inaugurated last April - in the presence of Mrs Sim Ann, Senior Minister of State, and Mr Marc Abensour, French Ambassador to Singapore - its campus within the National Design Centre.
It offers a two-year master's degree on the theme of design for the Smart City, a strategic theme for the Cité-Etat. It also welcomes active professionals for a part-time Master's degree and executive training.
Strate opened its Strate Bangalore School of Design in India last September and welcomed its first 25 students in the premises of its local partner, the Indian University Jain. Within four years, the school hopes to welcome 500 to 600 students on its own campus, as well as partner companies, based on the Strate France model. This campus awards the title of "Industrial Designer" (bac + 5) on all the school's specialties: Mobility[s], Space[s], Identity[s], Products[s], Interaction[s].
Strate also offers a 450-hour program taught in France and the United States. This international curriculum has been co-created with the French group D3, a specialist in automotive design. In Los Angeles, a dozen French and American students are welcomed to follow part of the "Certificate in Automobile Digital Modeling" course, bringing an international perspective to modelers.
"Europe with Germany, South America and Africa represent very interesting development potentials. », concludes Dominique Sciamma - Managing Director Strate School of Design.
Strate is also a new campus in Lyon.
After Sèvres, Singapore and Bangalore, it is in France's leading industrial region, and the second largest French design ecosystem, that the first private French design school has decided to create its second campus in France, opening in September 2019.
Strate École de Design has chosen the Confluence district in Lyon to set up its new campus. It will open its doors in September 2019.
On its Lyon campus, Strate will deliver its Design Diploma approved by the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation. A five-year course, it prepares students for the following five specialities: interaction, immersion, identity, products and space. In the end, 450 students will occupy the Confluence campus (class of 90 students). The school will also offer its double degrees with Grenoble Ecole de Management and SciencesPo Paris.
Strate, a school anchored in reality
Strate Ecole de design belongs to the French private higher education group, Galileo Studialis, which is already very present internationally. This group is number one in Europe and number two in the world.
Its ambition: to become the world leader. Its schools, most of which are dedicated to the creative industries, are well placed to export what the whole world recognizes as a territory of excellence: the French touch. With very high ambitions for design, Strate school is fully in line with this project.
"Design remains too often associated with the applied arts. Strate is no longer a school of applied arts. It is a school of thought applied to the world. Its leitmotiv is none other than "Make the world more simple, more just, more beautiful", which means that we train human beings whose mission is to change and improve the world by creating conditions for successful life experiences, by making great professionals. This vision is based on a pedagogy turned towards the human being, questioning, collaborative work, in line with the European Enlightenment thinking. » says Dominique Sciamma - Managing Director Strate School of Design.
Created in 1993, Strate is a school of the Galileo Global Education Group, with a strong focus on creative industries (Cours Florent, Penninghen, Domus, Istituto Marangoni, LISAA, Ateliers de Sèvres, HETIC, Web School Factory, ...) but also on Management (PSB Paris School of Business, ESG, ...).
