Design · Matosinhos, 1989

Founded in 1989, ESAD College of Art and Design is a private university which gradually established itself as a benchmark for quality in training, research and promotion in the field of design and the arts.

ESAD has always promoted quality education and reflected the awareness that schools, in addition to providing academic degrees, must be assumed as educational institutions in the full sense of the term, as communicating platforms between the civil community, the industry and the market. Trains students to participate and compete nationally and internationally, keeping up with the growing demands of understanding the role of design and the arts, and widening creative, critical, and technological competencies.

ESAD has been implementing an extensive program of events, including seminars, conferences, workshops and exhibitions, promoting analysis and reflection on relevant topics in the fields of design, national and internationally.
