butic The New School
Training in the field of new technologies is essential to progress in today's digital world.
Training in the field of new technologies is essential to progress in today's digital world, but attending to online remote education (especially when focused on digital design, engineering, animation, etc.) require expensive hardware and software applications and the students and instructors need to buy highly priced hardware and software.
Applied on the education sector for the first time, butic offers a high impact global solution that eliminates hardware and software barriers to access high quality technical education.
butic's model is enabled by an agreement with butic’s partner "Summus Render" and powered by "IBM Global Services” and "VM Ware”, giving students a cheap professional workstation in the cloud. The new “Simple Education” virtualized platform, relying on the “IBM Watson & Cloud Platform”, allows butic to be the only education proposal world-wide that includes a cheap professional cloud environment that avoids students the need to buy expensive (but anyway limited) hardware.
In order to have high quality education, and as far as we have LIVE learning both in physical and online learning environments, we have 3 main resources at butic:
Buildings: Our campus is in Madrid and it´s based in old industrial building completely rebuilt.
The building has both education and coworking places, as we want to share space with professionals and companies working in our same markets.
Online Campus: Live online education is not having a Zoom account. We have built something very similar to Harvard University Campus in order to: (1) have a real online life (2) be able to manage ALL the recorded classes for reviewing purposes (3) check any education progress. We have invested a lot in edtech joining 3 leaders to achieve success, Canvas (Instructure), Zoom (Streaming) and Panopto (VCS)
We are the only fully virtualized high end graphics school, something that allows us to give our students a remote (and cheap) high end 3D workstation. In few words, we try to democratise access to high quality education in any part of the world.
We are responsible for representing big companies in training and education fields. Keeping up to date is so mandatory for us, as nobody would understand that a Learning Partner of Autodesk, would not be up to date in their technology. This is what we do with our staff:
1. Check any knowledge library available just to company learning partners. As ATC´s, we usually have access to important private knowledge hubs
2. Demand our partners continuous update training in our private partner portals
3. Train the trainers sessions, both delivered by other butic instructors or by external professionals
4. Participate in beta testing programs.
5. Enrol in programs like Unreal Fellowship Program.
Almost 100%. butic is pronounced the same as boutique. It is a game of words in which we wanted to declare that we are not a massive low quality school, we are "boutique school" in which normally anyone would reach a level that is over the market medium. In this case, anyone would be working, locally or in a foreign country
Almost every ADSK software involved in AECO industry (Max, Revit, Civil 3D, etc.), Adobe CC, any Itoo, any from Chaos, Unreal Engine and several others that help those main actors.
We are in a different league: Together with IBM Business Partner SimpleCloud, butic launched a cloud-based learning environment for its students. The solution hosted on IBM® Cloud®, lets users access virtual workstations featuring high-end graphics software and processing capabilities through thin client devices for their architecture, construction and engineering coursework.

Networking & Careers
Our usual student is between 23-35 years old. That means basically two things (1) usually they are working at the same time they are studying (2) as they study as a real need -not just because their parents want them to study something-, we must deliver a high quality education. Our students do not want to loose time; time is gold and they need to be skilled in order to keep their jobs or being hired in a better one. We usually deliver 3 hours of daily class, intense and focused in "doing real world projects". Apart from class, they must dedicate a lot of time to do mandatory projects. Only those who give us all of them, on time, will get certified/accredited by the school. We like this sentence: "At butic, it is not those who want to study, but those who can. And it is not a question of money, but of attitude."
Following studios hire our graduates: El Ranchito VFX, Beauty and the Bit, VT-Lab, TaBIM, Rubio Arquitectura, Rafael de la Hoz Arquitectos, and many other AECO companies.
We basically cover the next fields: BIM Architecture, BIM Engineering, BIM facility managing, 3D visualization, XR worlds. Our main differences are: just LIVE education, best Campus edTECH, unique virtualized systems that allow us to give any student an "unlimited" workstation in any part of the world and in a real collaborative environment, just authorized training. We do not understand education with the company approval. Only professional instructors sharing their time between production and education, and Linked to the industry.
Here are a few examples courses taught by butic The New School. For full details, please visit their website.
Official Superior Master of Architectural Visualization from Autodesk, Chaos Group and Unreal Engine. MBV
At the end of Level I , the student will have developed all the knowledge and techniques to be able to make still images of the highest level . At the end of Level II , the student will have obtained all the knowledge and techniques necessary to develop high-quality videos .
In parallel to the acquisition of knowledge, the planning , monitoring and execution of the Final Master Project (PFM) will be carried out in such a way that the candidate, at the end of the Higher Master, has an important audiovisual work with which to present himself to both companies of the sector, as well as the most recognized national and international competitions.
Master's degree in architectural visualization, creation of VR environments and official multiplatform apps from Unreal Engine
The development of technology at the software and hardware level that we have experienced in recent years has led to the entry of Unreal Engine 4 in the real estate and architecture market, which was unthinkable a long time ago, but today, it is possible represent architectural spaces in a real and credible way . We will be able to provide our scenes with a level of detail and realism never seen before in dynamic rendering engines, making them develop alongside our creative and constructive process.
Candidates who successfully pass the Virtual Reality Master for AEC (Architecture, Engineering and Construction) will have the necessary training to take their architectural projects to the virtual environment, and in this way be able to move freely through them, interact and make modifications in real time. The images and videos generated will not only be the last phase of the project but will also be part of it from the beginning and throughout its development.
Unreal Engine Official VR and Visualization Professional Grade
Our objective is to accompany the student in the process of acquiring technical and aesthetic knowledge that will lead them to be able to compete in the world of audiovisual production, developing architectural visualization projects in real time .
We believe in technique as a fundamental basis for professional development, but not as an objective in itself.
The global learning will be carried out in two training levels, which will take the student on his formative path from the acquisition of the basic knowledge of the most elementary tools, to the development of the most advanced techniques by the hand of the cutting-edge tools in the audiovisual sector. , as is Unreal Engine .
The student will obtain the necessary training to take architectural projects to the virtual environment , and in this way, to be able to move freely through them, interact and make modifications in real time.
