JK Lakshmipat University (JKLU) has opened its Institute of Design, strengthening further its portfolio of excellent higher education offerings.
The institute will be providing Bachelors of Design (B.Des) degree, which is a 4-year full-time, graduate degree programme, recognized by UGC, Government of India. The Programme is offering an opportunity for students to experience industry in their classroom, making them ready for creating experiences for people once they complete the program.
A Balasubramaniam, Dean, Institute of Design, JK Lakshmipat University, said, "We are aiming to bring about a fresh, new, approach to design education, which is collaborative in nature and integrative in process. It is both unique and relevant for the neo-designer, somebody who is at ease working in the studios, experimenting at the labs and in presenting at boardrooms. To achieve this, we are re-imagining the curriculum to make way for new skills, new methods of working, and new pedagogy."
Asheesh Gupta, Pro Vice Chancellor, JKLU, added, "With experiential learning already at the core of its Institute of Engineering & Technology and Institute of Management, the introduction of the Institute of Design comes as an initiative that can bridge and fuse all the three disciplines. The design curriculum at JKLU sits at the crossroads of technology, business, society, culture and people."
