IE School of Architecture and Cambridge University-IDB are the only European schools of architecture represented in the U.S. publication 

IE School of Architecture and Design has appeared for the second consecutive year in the ranking of the prestigious U.S. journal Design Intelligence as a global focal point in the teaching of architecture, with an innovative education model and high levels of motivation in a high-tech learning environment.

The magazine, which publishes an annual ranking of the most prestigious Schools of Architecture and Design in the US, has once again included a section featuring schools that do not form part of the ranking but offer an excellent education model. Design Intelligence ranks IE University and its School of Architecture in the category “Unexpected Options”, along with five other major institutions: Boston Architectural College, Cambridge University-IDB, Tulane University, University of Puerto Rico and Virginia Commonwealth University. This recognition further consolidates the positioning of IE School of Architecture and Design on the international stage, only four years after it was created. 

Editor James Russell highlights IE School of Architecture and describes its close association with IE Business School, “one of the top business schools in the world”, stating that its global education system is a differentiating factor, and that it strengthens the professional skills of future architects. The magazine underscores the fact that it is located in a former convent that offers cutting edge technology and a truly inspiring environment for students and teachers. Another of the strengths of IE School Architecture and Design, according to Design Intelligence, is that the main language of instruction is English. 

The IE University Degree in Architecture achieved first place in the category Hidden Gems in Global Architecture Education in the 2010 ranking due to its innovative approach, creativity and overall commitment. Thus IE University became the first university in continental Europe to appear in this ranking, a position it still holds.

Design Intelligence is the bi-monthly magazine of the Design Futures Council (DFC), a think tank in Washington DC, whose board includes representatives from design firms, schools and leading manufacturers in the United States. Since 1999 it has published a ranking of the best U.S. Architecture Schools every fall, providing a reference tool for students who are in the process of selecting a university to pursue a career in Architecture and Design. The ranking has enjoyed international recognition since 2010.

IE School of Architecture, única escuela española en el ranking 2011 de Design Intelligence 

IE School Architecture and Design aparece por segundo año consecutivo en el ranking de la prestigiosa revista estadounidense Design Intelligence como un centro de referencia mundial en la enseñanza de la Arquitectura por su innovador modelo de enseñanza desarrollado en un ambiente de aprendizaje altamente tecnológico y de fuerte inspiración. 

Esta revista estadounidense, que publica cada año un ranking de los centros de enseñanza de Arquitectura y Diseño más prestigiosos de EE.UU, ha destacado un año más a aquellas escuelas que, sin formar parte del ranking, poseen un excelente modelo educativo. Design Intelligence sitúa a  IE University y a su escuela de Arquitectura en la categoría de “Unexpected Options” (Opciones inesperadas) junto a otras cinco importantes instituciones: Boston Architectural College, Cambridge University-IDB, Tulane University, University of Puerto Rico y Virginia Commonwealth University. Este reconocimiento refuerza el lugar que ocupa la  escuela de arquitectura de IE en la escena internacional, con tan solo cuatro años de existencia. 

En el artículo de Design Intelligence, el editor James Russel destaca de IE School Architecture and Design su estrecha vinculación con IE Business School, “una de las escuelas de negocio más prestigiosas del mundo”, su sistema de enseñanza global diferente al resto de escuelas, lo que fortalece las prácticas profesionales de los futuros arquitectos. Asimismo, subraya que está ubicada en un antiguo convento que es  la vez un entorno altamente  tecnológico y muy inspirador para alumnos y profesores. Otro de los puntos fuertes de IE School Architecture and Design, según Design Intelligence, es que el idioma mayoritario de enseñanza es el inglés.  Read more…
