The program emphasises on design research, and practice-based learning in a liberal, multi-disciplinary environment. All the courses have been structured into modules, which give flexibility for teaching a single course by more than one specialised design faculty members. Hands-on exercises, studio-based activities, seminars, etc. are built into most of the courses to facilitate experiential and practice-based learning.
