Institute of Design is the youngest institute of Nirma University that commenced in 2017 with the vision to build a holistic campus of varied disciplines. The mandate was to expand the innovative science and logic-based disciplines to include creative, disruptive and non-linear thinking disciplines. Being the youngest institute on the university campus, our vision is to offer inter-disciplinary orientation that is necessary for demands of contemporary society and industry.

Institute of Design offers two disciplines of learning- Industrial Design and Communication Design. The 4-year undergraduate programme begins with a common foundation year in design. There is an intense 15 weeks of ‘learning’ in each of the 7 semesters in studios, classrooms, workshops and through fieldwork. Learning through apprenticeships and internships happens during the 10 weeks’ summer vacation period, each year. The 8th Semester is a 4-month long project, which may be sponsored by industry, NGOs or self-initiated by the student in response to an urgent societal concern, on the basis of which the final Degree is granted.
