Sonipat, Haryana based World University of Design (WUD), a UGC recognised university and India’s first and only university dedicated to education in the creative domain, has announced admissions for 2018-19 session for its undergraduate, postgraduate and diploma courses. The application deadline for the batch commencing in August 2018 is April 2.
Admission will be conducted through a Design Aptitude Test (DAT) followed by a personal interview, details of which are available online at www.worlduniversityofdesign.ac.in/.
Choosing the right career is one of the most difficult decisions that a student faces. The Design field today offers a range of new and lucrative career options in India.
With a unique curriculum that encourages creativity, innovation, academic excellence and industry preparedness, WUD aspires to create an environment of high quality trans-disciplinary education with a design foundation across both undergraduate and postgraduate level. The university offers India’s largest creative and comprehensive course catalogue with 24 specialised undergraduate and postgraduate programmes across design arenas such as Fashion, Communication, Visual Arts, Design & Retail Management, Professional Automotive Modeling and Architecture.
Elaborating on the study programmes offered at WUD, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, vice chancellor, said, “Companies are increasingly applying design principles to strategy and innovation today. Designers are an intrinsic part of a company’s core strategy and product development. India’s annual consumption of design services, that was estimated at Rs. 3,400 crore a few years back, has grown at an estimated rate of 400 percent per annum. Design has therefore emerged as a mainstream career option and has brought in opportunities that far outstrip the supply of design professionals. India currently produces about 2000 design professionals a year against a requirement of 8,000 to 10,000. At WUD, we not only teach the concepts of design, but our unique teaching pedagogy, interdisciplinary research and international collaborations make students industry ready and capable of working as part of a cross-discipline team.”
Design today forms the foundation of most businesses, and designers work closely with engineers, scientists and marketing personnel to create environments, spaces, products, processes and services that are not only functional but commercially viable and acceptable to consumers.
There is a host of employment opportunities for design professionals across sectors as diverse as publishing, furniture, fashion, software, F&B, consumer products, automobiles, electronics, software, construction, media, to name a few.
A graduate from WUD would typically start their career with a salary package between INR 3 to 10 lakh per annum. After some years of hands on experience with a few good brands, the salary package can soar to to 15 lakh per annum.
Applications for admission can be made online on the university’s website. Students can fill and submit the forms by April 2 and the admission test will take place on April 8, 2018. The new session will commence from August 1, 2018.
WUD has announced over 3 crore worth of scholarships to attract meritorious students to its programmes.
Located in the education hub of Rajiv Gandhi Education City in Sonipat, Haryana, the World University of Design (WUD) boasts highly qualified faculty members who have been educated and trained at prestigious institutes such as NIFT, NID, LCF -London, FIT-New York, SPA and Delhi College of Art, among others.Posted in Campus
