ESNE (Escuela Universitaria de Diseño, Innovación y tecnología) has more than 10 years of experience providing specialized university education and is recognized by the Consejería de Educación de la Comunidad de Madrid.
Our great passion for creativity and for new technologies is embodied in specialized and leading-edge facilities that qualify ESNE for a status that is more than a University Center: we are a TALENT FACTORY.
ESNE is endowed with public recognition by the Comunidad de Madrid with the hallmark of quality “Madrid Excellente” and by the Ministry of Education, which accredits us as an Centro Extranjero Oficial offering education programs based on the British system. In addition, ESNE is recognized by the Ministry of Industry, Tourism and Trade as a Research and Development (R&D) oriented center.
When it comes to the private sector, the recognition comes from top companies such as Microsoft, which has given us the privilege of being the only Microsoft Experience Center in Spain. In this way, we become the largest Windows Phone 8 apps developer in the country. ESNE is also the only Spanish university in the Advisory Board of PlayStation First, a Sony Computer Entertainment college program whose mission is to generate talent and incubate innovative projects.
Initiatives are clearly reflected on projects such as the book “Chamartin: Aldea, Villa, Distrito” put forward by the Chamartin district and under the guardianshhip of the town hall of Madrid, where ESNE participated as an expert of the graphic concept.
Equally significant, IFEMA relies on the ESNE Interior area to give a personal touch to the MOMAD environment, the show assigned to organizing the most important fashion events in Europe. Similarly, WildBit, Globomedia y RTVE chose ESNE for the conceptualization, design, and development of “Águila Roja: orígenes”, first tablet and smartphone game based on this successful TV series.
Furthermore, in the area of fashion, the international firm Saga Furs and OEEP (Organización Empresarial Española de Peletería = Spanish Fur Business Organization) have become ESNE strategic partners to boost the sector’s development. In this collaboration, important projects have taken place to substantially boost our students’ career. A case in point is our students’ participation in Cross Design Project, which annually rewards our students with the opportunity to enjoy a week’s stay at its Danish headquarter. Indeed, the success of “our factory” is embodied in the success of our students who, with their efforts, have won numerous awards and managed to start their own business.
The creative talent of designers combined with the strategic vision of big companies have put the Fashion sector in the international limelight.
Aware as we were of its potential and market demand, ESNE – Uni¬versity School of Design, Innova¬tion, and Technology, was the first to offer a University Degree in Fashion Design. By doing so, we established ourselves as a benchmark in the sec¬tor. Students will develop the skills necessary to deliver strong profes¬sional competencies in the different aspects that make up the Fashion industry such as dressmaking, pat¬tern making, scaling, fashion styling, fabrics and materials, marketing and communication. Our approach com¬bines theoretical and practice-based learning as a means of boosting stu¬dents’ creative abilities and artistic sensitivity.
Experts in the Fashion Industry must possess a global understanding of the creative and productive proces¬ses of the industry. For this reason, the Degree in Fashion Design will di-versify in Year 3, giving the student the opportunity to specialize in Com¬munication or Design.
Among the events and renow¬ned international trade fairs, etc. in which our students participate is the MFSHOW (the Madrid Fashion Week Show). This event takes place twice a year and our students take part with their own collections, which makes ESNE the only college to exhibit on the catwalk of an official fashion show.
