The IIT-Delhi Board of Governors right this moment accepted beginning of ‘Bachelor of Design (B.Des)’ from the 2022-23 session. The programme might be provided by the Institute’s Division of Design, which got here into existence in 2017. The four-year programme can have 20 seats to start out with and might be open to college students of all specialisations (science, arts, commerce and so forth).
College students for the B Design programme might be admitted based mostly on the Undergraduate Frequent 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’re delighted about beginning of this new Bachelor’s programme in design as that is the primary time IIT Delhi could be admitting undergraduate college students (B.Des) from aside from Physics, Chemistry and Arithmetic. We count on that the scholars who graduate with a B Design diploma from IIT Delhi would take up management positions in business, academia, authorities, consulting, and entrepreneurship over a time frame.”
Prof Rao added, “Bachelor of Design (B.Des.) programme and different programmes in design, that are in pipeline at IIT Delhi will bridge the massive demand-supply hole of high quality design professionals, which our nation must excel as a inventive economic system.”
