The history of design education dates to the year 1919 when it got its first appearance as a formal education in Bauhaus in Germany. Vijaybhoomi School of Design adds a new milestone in the century old journey of design education with its campus located in the foothills of Sahyadri mountains at Karjat, Greater Mumbai.

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.

At Vijaybhoomi School of Design, the future designers will learn applied forms of drawing, photography, graphic design, filmmaking, animation, design for digital experience, information and interactive design from the most competent faculty members and design practitioners, in the most natural environment, with the most advanced tools and futuristic curriculum and pedagogy.
