Department of Design

We are at the cusp of a new dynamic age, which is transiting from the industrial age to the age of information technology. This brings with it a multitude of new and diverse areas, new skill-sets, new services, new products and new opportunities. Design learning in its truest sense is an open, 24x7, universal and sensorial activity which cannot be classified into narrow specialities which seems to be the current systems in many schools all over. We at Nirma University have started a design department which will encourage diverse thinking thath is inclusive, sustainable and exciting. Students will be able to perform and solve complex problems in a wide spectrum of areas and not be bogged down by narrow specializations and thus be richer and happier in their lives through their learning and work.

At this opportune time, Nirma University has come out with an excellent programme of design education to give the students of the future a well thought out, detailed and purposeful education in design.

On offer are a four years B.Des. (Industrial Design) and a B.Des.(Communication Design) programmes.

Founded in 2017 and led by Prof Amit Sheth, the Department of Design is the latest addition to Nirma University.
