Teaching and Learning Methodologies

The approach here is entirely project based. SID puts high emphasis on evaluating the students on the basis of continuous performance and projects.

Design is an intuition, an outcome of a subconscious thought that leads us to a deeper sense of knowing and offering four major streamlines as Communication Design, Industrial design, Fashion Communication and Fashion Design in the form of four years Graduate Degree comprising of 8 Semesters and User Experience Design in the form of two years Post Graduate Degree programme comprising of 4 Semesters.

Intuition is akin to an elongated insight that tells us we are on to something dynamic to face the competitive world of design.

Design also involves reason that assesses the problem and analyzes the possibilities for solution. It is the analytical process that relies on method and logic to assess, refine, and verify its various hypotheses. At SID, this reflects in the evaluation methods of the student's project based assignments on the basis of daily performances.
