Design studies have evolved from being a discipline that focuses on forms and aesthetics to a discipline that solves real-world business problems. Now designers need to be critical thinkers and have a sense of discernment while choosing and working on projects. The University Institute of Design at Chandigarh University enables students to develop these skills and adapt to contemporary and competitive professional environments.
The 4-year Bachelor of Design (Interior) program is offered with an exit option after 3 years and is designed to cater to the global needs of the design industry and help students broaden their horizons. The curriculum is formulated with a sensitive, collaborative and futuristic approach to design innovation. The program envisages embedding transdisciplinary capabilities among students through a flexible choice-based credit system, collaborative problem-solving, discipline-agnostic pedagogy, and joint studios.
Message from Director, UID
Students are offered departmental electives across various disciplines from Semesters 3 to 7. The concentration baskets range from Product Design, Transport Design, UI/UX Design, Craft Cluster, Knitwear, Branding & Merchandising, Furniture Design, Exhibition Design, and Retail Space Design.
Students from across all specializations will be allowed to take courses from these baskets. In case, a student chooses to take a mix of courses from the baskets, the same are counted as individual electives. This encourages the students to adopt a transdisciplinary approach in the course of their studies.
The University Institute of Design (UID) at Chandigarh University helps students to develop creative and critical thinking skills through hands-on practical training, the usage of cutting-edge technology, and the study of traditional and contemporary art forms. The program curriculums at UID emphasize the digitalization of basic art forms and are designed to familiarise students with the emerging trends in the industry. The institute offers highly trained faculty members, well-designed laboratories, and modern classrooms to enhance the learning experience of students and enable them to deal with any professional challenges that might arise in their careers.
