The infrastructure at IIAD emulates the best practices of designing colleges around the world. The state-of-the-art campus reflects the dynamic needs of design students and faculty members, with cutting-edge technology poised to deliver world-class design education. The adaptive spaces have been designed to facilitate multidisciplinary collaborations and seamless exchange of information between the various levels. It also provides advanced facilities for teaching learning as well as ample exhibition space to put student work on display. Spaces like the Material Workshop and Photography Lab serve as an extension of the Studio Space and are equipped with technical resources.
Each year IIAD welcomes a spirited batch of students to its design programmes and commemorates the day by organising an Orientation Day. The purpose of this event is to formally initiate the students into their chosen design disciplines and introduce them to various resources that will enhance their academic experience at IIAD.
Here are some glimpses from the previous years.
Remix (Annual Fest)
The Core Council and study body of IIAD successfully organised the first edition of their art and design fest – Remix 2018 on 27th & 28th Feb 2018. The festival promises to represent, revive and redefine the creed of designers and artists, not just from IIAD and other design colleges but anybody with a creative streak. The fest, which will be an annual event going further, had a series of signature events not just for aspiring designers but also artists across allied fields like music, dance, fashion, photography and film-making.

The Student Council is a squad of enthusiastic and committed design students entrusted with the task of being the voice of IIAD’s student fraternity. Being a part of the Student Council helps students gather adequate experience that stretches beyond the academic realm; skills that would hold them in good stead when they begin their journey as professionals. The Student Council is actively engaged in organising co-curricular and extra-curricular activities both on and off the Campus.
Apart from spending countless hours in the design studios, students at IIAD enjoy challenging themselves beyond the academic realm as well. To enable this, there are structured Student Clubs that explore exciting opportunities in the following genres.
