The balance between theory and practice is most effectively demonstrated in the activities carried out from the very first year in which students interact closely with companies.

One of the strengths of educational activities is the fostering of problem-solving skills in real case studies and learning how to relate to the business world from the very beginning. SID believes in these collaborations that, during the third year and during all extra activities, allow students to engage with projects built around briefs assigned by companies from all areas of design.

The project modules of the third year are conceived in such a way as to allow students to make the most of these opportunities for discussion and to experiment with different approaches, thanks to Senior Designers who are always different and selected specifically to direct the project, flanked and supported by a Senior Assistant Designer with the task of influencing and expanding thoughts and ideas with their own skills and vision.

There are more than 300 brands that have collaborated with SID and with which lasting collaborative relationships often result in successful case histories and great job opportunities for graduating students.
