GDP Year-wise Learning Outcomes

The course will take students through various facets of interdisciplinary design with a focus on pathway-based disciplines such as Visual Communication, Fashion Design, Product Design, and Interior Design with the flexibility to choose from different domains and design disciplines. In addition to a ‘home-base’ center at UID, Gandhinagar, each student undergoes a global design learning experience at each of the other partner institutions in Europe, Australia & UK.

The first year is dedicated to building a strong foundation and introducing the students to the fundamentals of design using an interdisciplinary and practice-based approach. It gradually moves on to relatively complex approaches to develop their critical thinking skills and their understanding of design and the elements around them.

As the course progresses the students undergo a global learning experience in their second year, first half focuses on innovation and design. They are taken through increasing degrees of complexities of design practice and understanding. They understand and connect to larger issues of society and culture, semiotics and aesthetics, environment and ethnography, innovation, and socially responsive design. In the second half of the Second year, the students choose a discipline or pathway of their choice with elective options that are interdisciplinary. The students further develop their skills in their chosen pathways with a choice of electives culminating in the interdisciplinary design lab.

In the third year the students continue discipline or the pathway of their choice with elective options that are interdisciplinary. The students undertake a global experience where they learn advanced pathway-based skills to inculcate best practices and experience an international classroom. The students further develop their skills in their chosen pathways with a choice of electives culminating in the interdisciplinary design lab.

During the fourth year students undertake a highly advanced research-based experience abroad at a leading university internationally. Then they undertake their major project and have the final showcase of the overall disciplinary and interdisciplinary learning process through the B.Design (Hons.) Global Design Programme.
