Art and design aren’t just for visual pleasure and aesthetic sensibilities, they have a big impact on our quality of life. When a culture or civilization is defined, it is mostly defined on the basis of the progress of its art and its design capabilities.
In our department students learn the historical context of how both these branches evolved and made an impact on the society in general and ways of life in particular. They also get to evolve their own techniques to express themselves visually and contextually and use the elements present around them to create artistic marvels. Along the way they develop their own design identities. They learn to adopt a pluralistic approach to design products and concepts that are pleasing and enriching across a wide area of sensibilities, cultures and identities.
Throughout the course we encourage our students to validate their ideas and perceptions through provoking, challenging the established norms and questioning people, technologies, cultural perceptions and grounded beliefs. Our environment is a creative catalyst for design innovation to facilitate social changes.
Art and design have a bearing on everything we use and everything we experience in our day-to-day lives. Whether it is an automobile or a tea kettle or a T-shirt or a mobile phone, art and design manifest in everything.
Our department attracts students from all over the world, creating a syncretic learning environment, creating a melting pot of creative ideas and opinions in the process.
Students who have been trained in art and design are unique in that they practice both creative and technical skills. In most cases, art and design majors also have extensive experience in collaboration and have a great capacity for innovation. As such, art and design graduates can expect to find careers in a wide variety of industries and sectors, including marketing and business, fashion, illustration, and even professional photography.
