“Design is a systematic and data-driven process.”

Design is systematic because it is based on a set of techniques, parameters and also on a cycle of discovery.

Taking this as spirit, the Department of Design under the aegis of the School of Humanities and Social Science was set up with the objective of fostering creative thinking, and innovation in a liberal, multidisciplinary, research-centric environment. Currently, the department offers a Minor Programme in Design, Core Course Curriculum (CCC) for undergraduate students across the university and Master of Design (M. Des.) program. In the near future, the Department will be offering the Bachelor of Design (B. Des.) program and the PhD Programme in Design. In order to introduce Design as ‘Experience’ in academics and industry, a two days National Symposium on ‘Experience Design: Present & Future’ is being organized from 16th to 17th January 2020.

The symposium will be conducted focusing on the role of Human Psychology, Emotional Design, and Design Thinking in the domain of ‘Experience Design’. Aiming to bridge the gap between the designers and their users, the Department of Design invites eminent from academia and industry to share their experiences, hurdles, backstory, theory, and theorems under one roof. The event is expected to elucidate different realms and practices to answer the scope of the study, skill set, innovation in the domain, industry requirements, and research scope for the future generation.
