Projected Number of seats in B.Des.: 100 (Includes reserved categories)

The BACHELOR OF DESIGN programme commences with a two semester rigorous Foundation Programme followed by 3 years of specialized studies in any of the disciplines offered in B.DES.

The one year Foundation Programme is geared towards developing values, perspectives, sensorial skills and aesthetic sensitivity essential for a designer in making. It introduces students to the fundamentals of design and helps develop ways of perception, understanding of multidisciplinary nature of design and relationship of design with human senses and emotions, culture, environment and ecology.

Basic design ‘studio’ courses are augmented by introductory studies in Science and Liberal Arts. This allows the students to develop a worldview, understanding of Indian milieu and the socio cultural context for Design to operate. The varied inputs over two semesters provide the necessary direction, stimuli, facilities and experience to foster creativity and thereby help each individual to discover their own identity and potential. The Foundation Programme is the basis on which the remaining design curriculum is built.
