Two Learn-On-Site internships of 8 and 16 weeks embedded within the course curriculum provide you with a wholesome 24 weeks of industry experience before you graduate. This adds professional experience to your portfolio and ensures that you graduate not just with a degree but also with an impressive resume.

Master Classes

Master Classes by eminent practitioners and leading academicians provide an opportunity for our students to learn from subject experts, acquire varying perspectives as well as keep themselves abreast with the latest developments in the domain.

Collaborative Projects

We collaborate with the industry on “Live projects” where students work on real-world design opportunities with the business organisation as their client. Students make client presentations, work on a defined budget and take their ideas into production. IIAD also invites leading design practitioners to envision and lead studio projects, addressing contemporary design concerns.

Our pi-designers make their mark in the industry with notable achievements and coveted positions across the spectrum. They continue to do great work and stay connected with us through the Alumni network.



IIAD engages in systematic interactions with the Industry throughout the year to give students an opportunity to establish contacts and networks with the industry – we organise HR summits, seminars, campus visits by potential recruiters and on-campus interviews.

A dedicated Career Services division works to bridge the aspirations of a student and the needs of the industry. They support students to prepare for placements through mock-interviews, one-on-one counselling and by organising workshops in portfolio development, CV writing and interview skills. They provide various opportunities for internships and placements aligned to each student’s specific forte/area of interest related to the industry.
