Design shapes our objects, environments, communication and many of our interactions.
Design at IDC is all encompassing, coexists in an active triadic relationship
with design education, design research and design practice.
Design education - to train and propagate; design research - to seek,
analyze, experiment, integrate; and design practice to apply, implement
and realize. IDC strives towards creating an excellent
pedagogical environment with foundations in these areas to prepare professionals
and visionaries of tomorrow
Design education can be the means to understand, disseminate and practice
design in society. IDC's experiments in design education and awareness
have inspired several designers, design educators and design schools.
In the emerging socio-economic-cultural scene, IDC intends to play an
important role. The concern at IDC for the problems at the grass root
level in developing economies has led to efforts in solving such problems
with design as a means and a tool.
The designer in a global economy requires competence to deal with a broad
range of challenges thrown up by socio-economic and cultural diversities.
This diversity is reflected in the structure of the educational program,
the type of research activities and the projects the students and faculty
undertake. The emphasis is on addressing the unmet design and communication
needs of the community.
