All over the world, institutions of higher learning have begun to prepare their students to respond to the rapidly changing political, socio-economic and technological pressures of our times. At the Indian Institute of Art and Design (IIAD), we believe in quality inter-disciplinary programs that will nurture talent and intellectual curiosity, foster critical thinking and a core skill set, and of course, offer professional exposure to an exciting industry through a dynamic learning curve.
It is our belief that what students DO in order to learn is the base of all contemporary education. At IIAD, we place a special emphasis on the ability to produce new knowledge, rather than relying solely on existing theory.
And so, it is our mission to create an engaging and reflective student-centred pedagogy that breaks down rigid traditional teaching methodology in favour of:
A strong conceptual, aesthetic and technical base for our graduates, equally emphasizing independent creative innovation, modern technological skills for execution, and a multi-perspective approach through a cognitive, comparative style method of learning. We too believe, like Kingston Design School, in the hands on approach –"Thinking through making"
An interactive, mentor-based learning environment, with small program enrolment sizes to facilitate quality interface with faculty and unlimited access to workspaces and tools
A synergy between research and development,education and industry to equip future professionals for a commercial, competitive and global environment.
We look forward to your application, and in guiding you towards a creative and rewarding career in the visual art and design world.
