Department of Design

Design links science, technology, aesthetics and humanistic values with overarching goal of sustainable growth and competitiveness. Managers can fine tune business competitiveness with ‘design thinking’ that inherently has metamorphism, empathy, rationalism, empiricism, and systems thinking in its foundation. Department of Design has been established to emerge as a centre of excellence to promote design thinking, innovation and creativity.

In the recent past, a lot of emphasis has been placed on innovations, creativity, design and development by the business houses to remain relevant in the industry. Delhi Technological University (DTU) has a strong tradition of academic excellence, harnessing the power of interdisciplinary thinking, and blending academia with practice. The Four Year B. Des.

The goal of B. Des. Programme is to develop students as innovative designers.

The programme structure is directed towards development of the ability to transform an abstract idea into everyday functional and usable products and services.

The combination of a flexible curriculum, a wide array of learning opportunities and a conducive learning environment is the hallmark of the Design programme of Department of Design.
