Learning Model of M.Design Interior & Experience Design
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
