National Institute of Design

NID offers professional education programmes at Undergraduate and Post Graduate level with five faculty streams and 17 diverse design domains. NID has established exchange programmes and ongoing pedagogic relationships with 35 overseas institutions. NID has also been playing a significant role in promoting design.

Having entered the 5th decade of design excellence, NID has been active as an autonomous institute under the aegis of the Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion, Ministry of Commerce & Industry, Government of India; in education, applied research, service and advanced training in Industrial, Communication, Textile, and I.T. Integrated (Experiential) Design. NID offers a wide spectrum of design domains while encouraging transdisciplinary design projects. NID is a unique institution with many problem-solving capabilities, depths of intellect and a time-tested, creative educational culture in promoting design competencies and setting standards of design education. The rigorous development of the designer’s skills and knowledge through a process of ‘hands on minds on’is what makes the difference.

The overall structure of NID’sprogramme is a combination of theory, skills, design projects, and field experiences supported by cutting edge design studios, skill & innovation labs and the Knowledge Management Centre. Sponsored design projects are brought into the classroom to provide professional experience. Interdisciplinary design studies in Science and Liberal Arts widen the students’ horizons and increase general awareness of contemporary issues.

A unique feature of NID’s design education programme is the openness of its educational culture and environment, where students from different faculties and design domains interact with each other in a seamless manner. The benefit of learning in such a trans-disciplinary context is immeasurable.

The Professional Education at NID has both UG & PG Programmes — Graduate Diploma Programme in Design (GDPD) of four years duration for students after 10+2, or equivalent like AISSCE/ IB/ ICSE, and the Post-Graduate Diploma Programme in Design (PGDPD) of 2 to 2 ½ years duration for graduates; particularly from architecture, technology, engineering, fine and applied arts, information technology, computer science, etc.

The scores for the Admission Test 2010-11 will be shared with the following institutions: D. J. Academy of Design, Coimbatore; IILM School of Design, Gurgaon; WLC College, India, New Delhi; and Pearl Academy of Fashion, New Delhi.


Graduate Diploma Programme in Design (GDPD)

This 4-year intensive professional UG programme is offered in the following areas of specialisation: 

Product Design, Furniture & Interior Design, Ceramic &
Glass Design
(Under the faculty of Industrial Design)

Graphic Design, Animation Film Design, Film & Video Communication, Exhibition (Spatial) Design
(Under the faculty of Communication Design)

Textile Design
(Under the faculty of Textile, Apparel and Lifestyle Design)

GDPD commences with a two semester rigorous Foundation Programme. This programme is geared to assist in developing attitudes, sensorial skills and aesthetic sensitivity necessary for further specialisation in specific areas of design. The purpose is to create awareness of the environment and to arouse the students’ creative faculties. The primary concern of the Foundation Programme is to introduce the students to the fundamentals of design, to initiate them to design as a creative problem solving process, and to develop a highly evolved ‘design’ attitude and understanding of the relationship with culture and human senses, emotions and feelings. In the Foundation Programme, basic design courses are augmented by related studies of Science and Liberal Arts, to help and develop an understanding of the Indian milieu, user needs, applications, processing of design and synthesis. The Foundation Programme is geared to inculcate the development of values, attitudes, materials and sensorial skills necessary for any design specialisation. It aspires to create an awareness of the changing environment by constantly relating the students’ learning to real life situations. The programme provides the necessary direction, stimuli, facilities and experience to foster creativity and thereby help each individual to discover their own identity, ability and potential. The Foundation Programme is the basis on which the remaining design curriculum is built. It also makes students appreciate the multidisciplinary nature of design.

Admission is open to students who have passed or who will appear for qualifying examinations under the Higher Secondary (10+2), or equivalents like AISSCE/ IB/ ICSE etc. Candidates passing the Institute’s admission tests/interviews will be admitted, subject to passing their qualifying examinations before they join the Institute.
