Admissions through undergraduate common entrance examination for design or UCEED
Design has an enormous impact on human lives and is a vehicle for social and economic progress of any country. Design is now central to all the knowledge application activities at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi. Keeping this in mind, the institute’s Board of governors has approved the introduction of the undergraduate programme, ‘Bachelor of Design (BDes), from 2022-23.
The BDes programme will be offered by the institute’s department of design, which came into existence in 2017. The four-year programme will have 20 seats to start with and will be open to students of all specialisations (science, arts, commerce etc.).
Students will be admitted into the BDes programmed based on their UCEED (undergraduate common entrance examination for design) ranks. Registration for UCEED examination has begun (http://www.uceed.iitb.ac.in/2022/).
Speaking of the new programme, V Ramgopal Rao, director, IIT Delhi said, “We are delighted about starting of this new programme, as this is the first time IIT Delhi would be admitting undergraduate students for a course other than Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. We expect that the students who graduate with a BDes degree from IIT Delhi would take up leadership positions in industry, academia, government, consulting, and entrepreneurship over a period of time.”
Rao also added, “The BDes programme and other programmes in design, which are in pipeline at IIT Delhi will bridge the huge demand-supply gap of quality design professionals, which our country needs to excel as a creative economy.”
Throwing light on the new academic programme, PV Madhusudhan Rao, head, department of design, IIT Delhi said, “The programme is designed for imparting high-quality education to produce industry-ready and socially conscious design professionals for addressing some of the grand challenges facing our society/country.”
IIT Delhi has been running a successful master of design (MDes) programme since 1994 and has produced some of the outstanding design professionals, design leaders, design researchers and design educators since then.
The department of design at IIT Delhi also has a strong PhD programme in place with more than 35 research scholars presently enrolled in the programme.
