These are the highlights of the course structure:
In the first year first semester, the student will do the course "Design Research Methodologies".
In the first semester, the student will do two electives in the chosen area of specialization. One elective will be from IDC and the other from outside departments. Each student in consultation with his faculty advisor will finalize the elective courses independently.
In the first and second semesters, the student will do a minor project. This project will have a research orientation or a combination of design orientation and research orientation. It is expected that the output of the minor project will be published as one paper in a juried conference or journal.
In the IInd semester (summer), the student will publish his work in the form of a monograph.
