School of Design

Design is an enabler and to design is very human. The agenda for enabling peace through value-based integral education and to sustain it can be addressed by human-centered design interventions beyond effectively making these user-centered. Meeting the criteria for design and design education that could be derived from grand challenges that influence the well-being of individuals, societies and the habitability of the planet make the pursuit of learning relevant, long-lasting and meaningful to humanity.

In this broad learning context, the MIT-WPU School of Design, is poised to offer world-class design education through a 4yr full-time undergraduate Bachelor of Design (B.Des.) degree. This is offered across Product Design(PD), User Experience Design(UX) and Visual Communication Design(VC). Within B.Des., while the students are driven to make creative abilities their forte, the curriculum also urges them to do so responsibly and stay relevant to the times.

Welcome to MIT-WPU School of Design!

I feel privileged and glad to experience the start of MIT-WPU School of Design with the Bachelor of Design (B.Des.) Program offering Product Design and User Experience Design.

The birth of MIT-WPU School of Design is the birth of an idea of what we mean and stand for in the design landscape, locally, nationally and internationally. A tryst with design includes aspects that afford the creative freedom to find your space and it is important to balance this freedom with responsibility. Responsibility indirectly comes with design, because design is not for oneself only but for others more importantly. To have a picture of whom one is designing for and the process by which this knowledge is gained is the principle of user-centered design. User-centric design is the axis of enterprises that spin success, grow and sustain it too. However, a designer’s responsibility extends beyond paying good heed to users.
