School of Interior Design
The School of Interior Design is focused on process-driven work that examines all aspects of interior and furniture design from concept to consumer. It involves an engagement with a full spectrum of design skills which include the making of scale models and prototypes for design briefs and the graphic depiction of interior environments and furniture elements in analogue and digital media. We enable graduates to develop critical, technical and managerial skills that align with the current conversation within the industry.

The Bachelors in Interior & Furniture Design programme teaches students to create imaginative spaces and meaningful interior products that meet the needs and enrich the experiences of modern life. Our students explore projects of varied scales such as residential, commercial, hospitality, interior furniture and products, exhibition & retail environments. The course of study offers a special focus on encompassing the skill, theory, history and context of furniture design. Students are guided towards creating thoughtful, ergonomic and sustainable elements that fit into multiple spatial contexts. Special emphasis is placed on the ability to develop self-made prototypes in order to test human and functional factors v/s aesthetics and use of materials. Students engage with live and theoretical design briefs exploring multidisciplinary ideas that allow them to explore both individual ambitions and collective practices.
The learning model at UID is incubated to create and adapt to an appropriate environment of learning that facilitates our students with new experiences. We make sure our learning model engages the learner into new dimensions of work. This model provides an environment for interactive student engagement and enhances the system thinking ability.
At UID, we believe that the experiential knowledge gained while developing and implementing this unique learning model is transferable to other disciplines as well.

The Interior Design department at UID conducts various workshops for students in the campus where they get to explore CNC machines, lathe machine, 3D printer, computer-aided machines, hand drills, table drills, table saw cutter, thermocol modelers, grinding machines. They work with different materials like wood, metal, glass, and hardware in these workshops to come up with interesting elements like furniture and lights. Students thus get to explore their creative ideas and construct them to reality by working hands-on in workshops inside the campus with workshop people.
UID is a well-known and growing institute where academics are taken seriously. It has a beautiful and aesthetic campus I have fallen in love with. The atmosphere is made conducive to learning and the exposure we receive here through the conversations at KU and master classes is amazing. And most of all the campus is absolutely safe and ragging free. 🙂 so far it has been a great place to learn and grow as a designer! — Srinidhi Sem 04, Visual Communication
UID is more than an educational institute for me, it is home and has given me a sense of belonging and safety. It has been a great platform for me to recognize my true potential and my talent. There is a constant support from our faculty that is highly experienced, the well – equipped workshops and labs help us bring our ideas to life. The exposure we get from guest lectures to industrial visits and cultural events and fests is what makes us balanced individuals. — Aafreen Chaudhary Sem 04, Visual Communication
