Department of Industrial Design
Industrial Design deals with products, services, and systems addressing usability, form, function, aesthetics, material, technologies, and sustainability. Our students explore creative thinking and problem-solving processes to bring value to companies, communities, and people. Our focus is on designing products, systems, and services that make life easier. At the Department of Industrial Design, we balance creativity, technology, cultural concerns, and environmental needs, exploring materials, production techniques, aesthetics, and the emerging fields of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), Artificial Intelligence, and social issues in both local and global contexts. We encourage our students to create solutions that are empathetic to the end user and have contextual insight.
Our curriculum encourages a broad exploration of the design practice with an emphasis on a user-centered approach and design thinking. We enable our students to develop critical, technical, and managerial skills that align with the contemporary conversation within the industry also entrepreneurial thinking for self-development by aligning with thought leaders in the industry. This course is focused on process-driven work that examines all aspects of industrial design from conception to implementation. We impart our students with a wide range of design skills and methodology that allows them to articulate their design ideas and thinking. Our exemplary infrastructure and workshops support model-making and prototype-building for different kinds of design briefs.

The main objective of the course is to acquaint the students with practical knowledge regarding the conceptualization, design, and development of a new product. The Product Designers have evolved from individual contributors to being called upon to reform business models, drive design standards across the organization, and improve the overall customer experience. Product Design focuses on consumer goods, healthcare equipment, toy design, evolving technology-based design, e-commerce, etc. with an emphasis on the design of form and styling, user-centered design, experience design, value engineering, and holistic product development. The course will give a high degree of technical knowledge balanced with creative ability and a hands-on approach. Students get well-acquainted with contemporary realities that are inclusive of sustainability and technological change. The student will gain the ability to use technology for the benefit of society.
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 workshops offer insights into topical themes in the field of design along with practical exercises that come with a high level of professionalism.
This experience after coming to UID has been a very big life lesson in general. Apart from providing me a way to do everything that I imagined doing in a college student’s life, UID has helped with more holistic growth rather than just academic-oriented development. I have become so much more in a very brief period of one and a half years. — Akash Nagaraj B.Design (Hons.) – Product Design ( Department of Industrial Design ) 2018-2022
As an individual, my personality is improving, and my confidence is boosting day by day. As a designer, I have started thinking in a better way than earlier. Design because it gives me a different perspective to look at things. Whenever I sketch something I know now that I can make it real. The learning experience at UID is very nice. Everyone is open to new thoughts and ideas. Here we not only learn from our teachers but also our friend’s help in various aspects because everyone is unique in their way — Yash Narkar B.Design (Hons.) – Product Design ( Department of Industrial Design ) 2018-2022
Feels great to be in UID. It gives my future a good opening and I feel blessed to be here. This College has many ongoing activities in form of internal as well as international competitions.
