Department of Design

Design is the youngest of academic disciplines to be hosted by IIT Hyderabad. It comes into being through post-graduate studies in the form of Mater of Design (MDes) and PhD in Design. The MDes is a two year full-time program aiming to provide broad-based understanding of design along with student-driven specialization in varied domains.Beginning with an MDes in Visual Design (began July 2014) focusing on experiencing the world based on what and how our eyes see, the post-graduate studies intend to diversify into other domains like user-interface design, moving images, contemporary photography, design education, design for well-being, collaborative design, urban environments, managing creative industries, and mobility design. PhD in Design (begins July 2014), provides a platform to pursue practice based and practice led research in art, design, culture, creative practices and related areas. The doctoral program aims to retain and bring the practice-oriented spirit into research in/through/on design, beside other more traditional modes of doing research in design. The department envisions to creatively engage in the space between technologies and people. This involves engaging in the key emergent areas such as: enabling of rights-based and equitable development work, user operated technologies, participatory and collaborative design, professional ethics/ sustainability, product systems and services, design and education, wellness and crowd sourced design.
