Industry Interactions


industry interactions

Industry interactions are an integral part of learning at IIAD. It ensures that our students see design from multiple perspectives, with varied approaches and also as applied in real life. It allows them to network with eminent design practitioners, align their learning to the latest developments in the design industry and also create their networks and connections. Here are some snapshots of interactions with the Industry and allied fields.

internships and placements

IIAD has a dedicated internship and placement network that works as a crucial interface between the students and the industry. The Career Management Services are aimed at easing the students’ entry into avenues of suitable employment upon graduation. During the academic year, the Institute engages in systematic interactions with the industry by organising a wide range of activities like live projects, industry visits, seminars, workshops and guest lectures.

The Career Management Services team at IIAD encourages students to explore internship opportunities throughout the duration of their chosen programme. In fact, students in the third year (Level 5) are required to mandatorily complete a Career Building Internship of 16 weeks duration, at the end of which they are awarded credits based on their performance.

The Institute tries to align each students’ specific forte/area of interest with that of the industry. In order to enable this, students are offered assistance with interview preparation, cover letter writing tips and portfolio design.

Students of IIAD have worked with over 60 companies — exploring myriad domains such as branding, motion graphics, UX/UI design, web design, advertising, interior working drawings, lookbooks and more. Here are some of the companies/studios that our students have been associated with.
