Department of Industrial Design
The Department of Industrial Design, now more than two decades old was started in 1992, offers a 2-year postgraduate program in Masters in Design. Open to Architects and Engineers, the primary aim of the program is to foster a wholesome design experience through an interdisciplinary process of teaching and training. Theoretical, technological and managerial inputs, which are dealt with through various courses, seminars and workshops are all directed towards this central goal. The determination to take a professional design approach to the interpretation of culture and conversely to use design as a tool for cultural enrichment is the focal point of the programme. The programme maintains close links with the industry, both in order to keep in touch with the latest developments in industrial processes and to ensure that the course remains relevant and comprehensive.
With a legacy of 25 years, the Department of Industrial Design is an epicenter of young designers thriving for knowledge and innovation. Each student is moulded to emerge as an asset for the industry through active participation and continued perseverance. User centric design, design thinking, experience design all come together to prepare these young designers to inculcate strong design sensibility specifically for the Indian context.
