All the esteemed dignitaries including the Deans, Directors and HODs present during the event spoke on various topics right from the inclusion of technology and innovation in design to readying the aspiring design students for the upcoming paradigm shift of the design industry and how UID can provide these budding creative geniuses with the right platform to bloom into a seasoned design professional.
