Undergraduate Program

The Bachelor of Product and Industrial Design (B. PID) degree is an innovative four years full-time undergraduate program of study. The Bachelor of Product and Industrial Design degree may be awarded with honors based upon the quality of performance in the program and current Faculty regulations.

The Bachelor of Product Design provides you with the skills for a career as a professional product designer. It brings together the creative 3D design culture of design, advanced technologies of engineering and the entrepreneurial spirit of business. The programme is designed to appeal to the aspirations of the new generation of young multi-skilled and multi-talented creative entrepreneurial students who seek a creative career.

Design education is not simply about learning skills or making beautiful objects. It is the training of young minds to develop innovative ideas that impact and contribute to the global community. The unique quality of the programme is its pedagogic emphasis on a holistic approach to design thinking and practice. Integrative studio-based design projects provide opportunities for the rich exchange of ideas and synergy for learning and development of design. It serves as the platform for students to be exposed to design issues primarily apart from other dimensions such as engineering, business and marketing. It is intended to have close collaboration with industry in the formulation and execution of projects so as to enable students to develop a high level of professionalism. The programme is planned to be supported by existing resource in traditional workshop facilities as well as equipment for digital media application and prototyping in future.

The work environment at the department is very friendly and comfortable, with considerable ratio of female students. There is strong interaction between students and teachers. The goal is to have designers who can synthesize technology and aesthetics in the service of human need. Graduates are anticipated to become leaders in the chosen field as self-starters making things happen.
