Jean-Baptiste Allaire Transportation Design - Graduation Project
STRATE, SCHOOL OF DESIGN
Fully recognized by the State and ranking with top French engineering schools, following the “Grande Ecole” pattern, STRATE has established itself among the 60 best Design schools worldwide (Business Week ranking), and among the 50 best European Design schools by DOMUS It is also the first French private school.
A Design school officially recognized by the French State
STRATE is offering a Level 1 Industrial Designer diploma recognized by the French State.
Strate School of Design was officially recognized by the French State on December 7th 2015, rewarding the quality and level of the teachings delivered, its Research department, as well as its social policy.
Starting with 18 students twenty years ago, the campus is now welcoming more than 600 of them. We have created 5 curriculums and have settled in Sèvres in 2010, on a brand new 3000 m2 campus, built purposefully for the school.
Our ambitions are as large as they are simple: we want to train dedicated professionals, focused on the human dimension of their work, and on the needs and desires of their contemporaries.
A social diversity concern with student recruitment
Thanks to this State acknowledgment and based on specific social criteria and means test, some STRATE students will have access to public scholarships. Applicants willing to enroll, as though it is difficult for them to finance their studies, will thus be encouraged to do so.
“Talents are to be found in so many different backgrounds, and we do look forward to welcoming them” says the School headmaster Dominique Sciamma.
Professional training handled by experts
Sculpture, nude drawing, sketch, watercolor, rough, colour: all visual arts classes are provided by full-fledged professionals mastering their art.
Professional designers are in charge of methodology and project management training.
Marketing classes, technical skills, engineering and professional support are also provided by fully involved players in their own fields.
Language and social science classes are delivered by certified teachers.
A recognized Player in the ecosystem of higher Design education
Created in 1993, STRATE is nowadays fully recognized as a major player and partner in French Design academic education. Throughout the years, it has built strong partnerships with several engineering schools and universities. Making it much easier to work with them in the future, and at an international level. The school’s foreign expansion projects – notably in Singapore, in India and Africa, should benefit from this overall professional network and recognition. In may 2017, Strate created a double diploma with Science - Po, one, if not the most prominent French Institute of Policital Studies.
STRATE is training designers (5-year program) , modellers (3-year training) and innovative project managers (1-year) and other players in the design, research and innovation field through at least 5 curriculums.
A 3000 m2 Campus near Paris
This building spans four stories and is organised in several spaces according to life at school : classes, workshops, lectures, computer labs, daily activities, dining and chilling areas.
We are equipped with a 200 spaces lecture hall, 17 large and bright classrooms, 4 computer labs Mac and PC, and 5 different workshops. The state-of-the-art Machines workshop will allow you to craft your models and prototypes and work with all types of materials. It has evolved into a “FabLab”, thanks to its digital part equipped with several 3D printers and a laser cutter / engraver.
Through its association with a local trader (Thomasse’s Bakery) STRATE has made sure that students are provided with quality catering service with diversified products and well balanced meals. Breakfast, lunch and all day snacks are available at very affordable cost.
Our campus is overhanging the Isle Seguin and the parc de Brimborion, including its open-access sports facilities.
