State of Art facilities in studios and labs Elaborating on the program, Prof. Manisha Phadke, Director, NMIMS School of Design, said, "Today, Design is blending with engineering enabled by cognitive and behavioural sciences, creating a union of design, engineering, and business.
With every progressive and competitive organization today, leveraging technology to improve their customer experience and engagement, there is no better time than today, for designers to humanise technology for seamless consumption. Boundaries have blurred, as designers increasingly need to work with several experts to realise a project. Therefore, design education needs to develop generalist design skills bolstered by domain-specific knowledge. Undergraduate programs should enable a path for individual discovery rather than conforming to streams that along the way may not interest them. " Admission process
A candidate interested in pursuing this 4-year program must have passed/appeared for the 10+2 or equivalent exam in any stream. Eligible candidates can then register here and appear for the Design Aptitude Test (NMIMS-DAT) which includes uploading portfolio, studio test and a personal interview.
