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.
