The IIT-Delhi Board of Governors right this moment permitted beginning of ‘Bachelor of Design (B.Des)’ from the 2022-23 session. The programme will likely be supplied by the Institute’s Department of Design, which got here into existence in 2017. The four-year programme may have 20 seats to start out with and will likely be open to college students of all specialisations (science, arts, commerce and many others).
Students for the B Design programme will likely be admitted based mostly on the Undergraduate Common Entrance Examination for Design ranks. The registration for the UCEED examination has begun (www.uceed.iitb.ac.in/2022/).
Prof V Ramgopal Rao, Director, IIT Delhi mentioned, “We are delighted about starting of this new Bachelor’s programme in design as this is the first time IIT Delhi would be admitting undergraduate students (B.Des) from other than Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. We expect that the students who graduate with a B Design degree from IIT Delhi would take up leadership positions in industry, academia, government, consulting, and entrepreneurship over a period of time.”
Prof Rao added, “Bachelor of Design (B.Des.) programme and other programmes in design, which are in pipeline at IIT Delhi will bridge the huge demand-supply gap of quality design professionals, which our country needs to excel as a creative economy.”
