M.Des Industrial Design

Industrial Design as a profession empowers the professional to design consumer centric products and systems related to industry, medical, computer, electronics, environment, and so on. 

The professional is not only an artist with great aesthetic knowledge, but also has the engineering point of perspective to enable a better production technology for the product. 

Industrial Design imparts the learner with artistic bent, technological approach and marketing knowledge. He/she can be a designer at a manufacturer, a design consultancy or even an entrepreneur. 

The learning process is based upon multi-disciplinary teaching having primary focus on arts (visual arts, liberal arts etc.), technology (engineering, materials, sciences etc.) and management (research tools, marketing, branding etc.). 

The course is well built to create a critical mind that has basic design, communication and engineering skills. Students learn through free hand sketches, computer aided design (using Adobe Photoshop, Autodesk Alias Design, Sketchbook Designer, RHINO 3D etc.) various studio workshops (Metal, Plastic, Automotive Clay, Wood, Paint etc.), visiting lectures, practical hands-on working with the materials (understanding various Colors, Materials, Finish etc.). It encourages students to learn not only from the course material but also from the various disciplines related to the same, including the environment and the nature. 

Learners learn in a not-so-formal environment, which allows free thinking and stresses mainly on the creative and innovative learning. An overall development and understanding is the key. Masters in Industrial Design is a Post graduate program that enables the learners to primarily focus on the design of various products.
