Bachelor of Design Programme

Design is a profession of thinkers and visionaries, people who shape human experience of the future by learning from the past and the present. They’re trained by education and practice to spot patterns, trends and gaps in people’s day to day lives and gain insights from them. For these insights to be objective, meaningful and most importantly, actionable enough to evolve into ideas that improve human condition as well as the environment, a multidisciplinary field like design offers itself like a framework of effective problem solving.

This framework adopts practices from many other fields. The scientific method dictates the terms of collection and handling of information in design practice. Technology drives functional and engineering prudence of a design solution. Arts and humanities cover the emotional aspects of it. Hard economics dictates the terms of execution while culture and tradition influence the aesthetic and acceptability parts of a design solution.

Design students are primed for being a part of the highly skilled talent pool for organizations. They are trained to become entrepreneurs, and they are taught to become scholars for various domains. Hence, an honourable Bachelor’s of Design program must develop a set of skills and instil some virtues in its graduates to be able to contribute to the culture and economy at a level proportionate to their talent and training.

  • Industry standard skill set
  • Qualification for higher studies
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Cultural Sensibility
  • Socio-Economic Sensibility
  • Sensibility for environmental concerns
  • Global perspective
