Department of Design commenced in 2017 with a vision of the management, to build a holistic campus of varied disciplines. The mandate was to expand the innovative science and logic-based disciplines to include creative, disruptive and non-linear thinking disciplines. Being the youngest department on the University campus, our vision is to offer inter-disciplinary orientation that is necessary for today’s industry demands.
Department of Design offers two disciplines of learning- Industrial Design and Communication Design. The 4-year Undergraduate programme begins with a common Foundation year in Design. There is an intense 15 weeks of ‘learning’ in each of the 7 semesters in studios, classrooms, workshops and throughfield work. Learning through Internships and Apprenticeships happens during the 10 weeks’ summer vacation period, each year. The 8th Semester is a 4-month Industry project, on the basis of which the final Degree is granted.
