Strate School of Design

Strate School of Design

At Strate School of Design, we believe a designer's main objective should be to serve his or her fellow man. The past two centuries have seen both giant leaps in progress and some of humanity's darkest moments.

Top reasons to study here

  • Bringing Designs to Life: A certain number of technical skills make the design profession stand out: drawing, modeling, sculpting and representing objects
  • A Multidisciplinary Approach: Designers are at the crossroads of many disciplines; they both observe situations and find the right technology that corresponds.
  • Supporting Sustainable Development: Designers influence the objects used in our everyday lives.
