Education to create design professionals of excellence to meet global diverse design needs. We at MIT-WPU ID create design trainers for other design and design-related institutions and positions in the 21st century as global leaders in Design Education and Research by recognizing the changes in economic and business environment nationally and globally.

Experimentation, Creativity and strategy support are our current focus of preparing individuals and organizations to take on the world’s complex, fast-changing, and unpredictable problems such as competitiveness, digital media and learning, health and wellbeing, social innovation and more. These global challenges influence the well-being of individuals, societies and the planet.

To undertake fundamental and applied research to create cutting-edge knowledge in the areas of design especially those concerned with user understanding and trends.

Encouraging the design of products and systems by aligning Make in India and skill India for indigenous design solutions by focusing on affordable design for the masses.

MIT-WPU ID will also have to identify opportunities for newer linkages across institutional, national and cultural boundaries in order to create newer opportunities for the development of people and industry. To offer integrated design consultancy services and cutting-edge design solutions providing practice opportunities to students as well as a revenue stream to the institute.

Becoming a repository of design knowledge, experience, and information on products, systems, materials, design and production processes related to traditional as well as modern technologies.

We provide design intervention for, rural technology, small, medium and large-scale enterprises, and outreach programmes for capability and institution building and sustainable livelihood, employment opportunities and economic growth.

B. Des. Product Design

The Product Design program is concerned primarily with the relationship between products, systems and those who use them. It covers the design of a wide range of items like mobile phones to household appliances to cars, to larger things like industrial tools, equipment, and machinery, as well as medical products.

The students in the product design program are exposed to a thorough research collection methodology and an exposure to design thinking, coupled with an understanding of materials and processes, ergonomics, CAD, which allows them to produce viable solutions for the market, both in the country as well as worldwide.

The program allows students to work on new products or improve existing ones and use their understanding of technology, material, and manufacturing methods to improve the design and utility items. The work involves designing, modeling, testing and producing prototypes. Working alongside engineers and model-makers, industrial / product designers conduct research and devise a design proposal for projects.

Programm Highlights

This program enables our students both to join the workforce of any company or proceed for higher studies if desired.

    • History of Industrial design

    • Product technology, material, and construction

B. Des. User Experience Design

User Experience does have a vital role in the successes and effectiveness of any Product, Application, and Service. For the Product, being technically and aesthetically advanced is not enough to users but it is very important that they deliver a good user experience also. The course will introduce and guide the students through the important elements of User Experience design, its process; Visual Communication; Graphics Design; User Interface Design; Information Design & Data Visualization, Interaction Design, Storytelling and Usability Engineering and testing.

It will also introduce the students to the deliverables they need to pass on to the software engineer/developers for implementation of their design. The students of this course will be able to apply the knowledge to their own professional work as a User Experience Designer, UX Designers, Information Architects, and Usability Engineers or for an online-based startup company. They will capable to apply learning’s in designing the Website design, Enterprise, and consumer software products and applications, Mobile applications etc.
