NEW DELHI: FLAME University has launched an interdisciplinary Bachelor of Design (BDES) programme at the undergraduate level. The programme comprises foundation courses, specialization courses, experiential learning courses, value-added courses, and professional practices. Eligible and interested students can apply for the programme on the official website – flame.edu.in.
The programme has been designed based on the insights offered by over 50 global design experts and reviewed by an advisory board that comprises Don Norman (known as the ‘Father of UX Design’), director of The Design Lab at the University of California. The BDes programme will be taught by full-time faculty experts with academic backgrounds from reputed institutions as well as visiting faculty consisting of industry professionals.
The curriculum of the programme aims to sync with the global expectations of designers and evolve with industry standards, fostering design skills through the cross-pollination of interdiscplinary courses.
The programme is built on an ‘Experience-centred Design’ curriculum, crafted for the future designer, where the students will get to work on the interdisciplinary nature of complex problem-solving by integrating diverse perspectives and fostering new approaches to thinking and problem-solving.
Announcing the launch of the programme, Professor Dishan Kamdar, vice-chancellor, FLAME University, said, “...The BDes program, with experience design as a major, is crafted for the future designer, who will not just be able to envision ideas and execute them, but also innovate by creating thought-provoking concepts. Our design education philosophy aims to equip students with relevant competencies and sharpen their skills through a practical and multi-disciplinary approach.”
“The program, which has been created under the advice of some of the best minds from India and abroad, will be taught by faculty who are experts and bring in real-world experience. By the end of the program, students will be ready to take on challenges regardless of the complexities, showcasing the impact and value that design professionals bring to the table,” he added.
