Design today has altered in accordance with the changing environments. It is largely collaborative, multidisciplinary, user driven and mostly delivered through technology. Shift from tangible product to intangible product is evident. The challenge Design practice faces is to retain the human to human connect in this virtual world. Successful designs are predominantly delighting the customer by solving unimagined needs and contributing to business value as well. Good design is now considered a game changer. Design is being recognized as a discipline that can play a role in many different contexts: from designing communications to designing businesses.
The shift in Design profession has triggered a change in Design education as well.
School of Design at NMIMS is proposed to be a new age design school.
A hub that evolves new pathways to actualize designers who will create life-enhancing solutions in an increasingly digitized world.
The aim is to build Design education with academic rigour, retaining experiential learning provided by studio-mentor driven teaching and in addition learning with ‘tinkering’ in a collaborative avenue.
It is the only undergraduate design programme that includes Technology and Business Management as modules in the curriculum.
4 Years Full Time
Mumbai - 25 seats
The program will prepare the students with:
Seven program fundamentals form the basis of the curriculum. The fundamentals related to design and those that address multi-disciplinary modules are in equal distribution over four years.
In years I & II there is a rigorous exposure to Design Fundamental and an introductory view of the other fundamentals. The intent is to build the core strengths of a designer. These two years will prepare them to be communication designers as well.
The years III & IV focus on applications of this Design knowledge to create value by exploring solutions when experimenting with emergent technologies with a multi-disciplinary approach.
