About the institution
Saintgits Design School (SDS), an autonomous design institute under the Saintgits Group of Institutions has commenced an academic initiative this year offering the AICTE-approved 4-year UG Programme (B. Des.). Three major disciplines within the programme include Product Design, Communication Design and Interaction Design,
Design education is a unique blend of art, science and technology which can solve many problems and enrich life. In a world beset with myriad problems which cannot be tackled with a single skill, a multi-disciplinary course like design is seen as the need of the hour. Even corporates have started appreciating the power of design with their efforts to incorporate design thinking into their business strategies to improve profit margins.
Saintgits Design School seeks to evolve into a premier Institute offering excellence in academics and research in the field of design. Comprising a core talented faculty and consistent involvement of expert visiting faculty from renowned design institutes, the B Des. programme offers a holistic approach to amalgamating emerging technologies and innovative pedagogical methods.
Committed to nation-building and addressing the needs of society, the programme envisages creating graduates who have innovation, creative thinking, critical thinking, digital skills, entrepreneurship and sustainability in their core DNA.
Saintgits offers B. Des. programme in Product Design, Communication Design and Interaction Design. This programme is meant to develop students’ skills, knowledge and aptitude to become creative problem solvers who can bring about innovation in the fields connected with design and emerging technologies. . Students coming from different streams undergo a common foundation programme to learn visualising and modelling skills and think creatively by exposure to various media.
A new way of learning
Design does not follow a typical textbook-based rote learning approach and focuses more on learning by doing. Classrooms, workshops, studios and labs are where students are mentored by experienced faculty in various nuances of design though assignments, projects, presentations and exhibitions. Learning from experts and from peers help them develop a multi-dimensional approach to design. Internal and external juries are conducted to help them fine-tune their concepts further. Full-fledged labs and workshops help them execute these ideas in their chosen media. Field visits, industry visits and internships keep them up-to-date on the industry trends and requirements.
Best of faculty
SDS will have qualified and experienced faculty from the IITs and other design schools in the country who will guide and mentor the students through their journey of discovery. Students also get a chance to participate in faculty’s consultancy and research projects. SDS will also have a pool of visiting faculty of practising designers to provide varied insights to students.
Best of facilities
SDS will have studio facilities along with labs equipped with machines including 3D printer and laser-cutting machines to bring their ideas to life. A well-stocked library with several subject-specific books and magazines, an auditorium for screenings and interactive spaces for discussions are being set up. The fully residential campus will have separate hostels for boys and girls with mess and cafeteria.
