programme overview

BE A DESIGN LEADER 4.0

Vijaybhoomi School of Design is looking for a batch of ‘Special 30’ who dare to shake the world with kick-ass communication design in the coming decades for its B.Des program.

DESIGN EDUCATION: In the span of a 100 year, most of the renowned universities and design schools across the globe have adopted their curriculum as per the ever-changing global and local needs, situations and technological advancement. But Vijaybhoomi School of Design aspires to turn the table and look at the entire discipline bottom-up where the roots and traditions of communities form the foundation, where design empowers people.

A good part of our communication design will be driven by Data Science, Artificial Intelligence and Automation in the coming years. Run-of-the-mill design graduates will struggle to keep themselves relevant and continuously employable. Uncertainty is the new normal. It demands a different kind of knowledge, skillsets, and attitude to set the sail as per the winds of change.

Industry 4.0 demands Design Leader 4.0.

The B.Des programme at Vijaybhoomi School of Design will ensure a strong foundation in innovation, design thinking, visual language, aesthetics and storytelling. The curriculum of the programme have been designed to provide a unique opportunity to the students to explore core courses in design principles, skill development, language, social studies etc.

No other design school curriculum integrates courses from different domains like Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, Law, Business Management and Environmental Sciences the way Vijaybhoomi School of Design does.

The future is multi-disciplinary!
