Value Addition

The School, besides fulfilling the curriculum requirements, makes efforts for value addition to the whole programme for giving better exposure to the students. This is done through organising various student activities such as regular industrial visits to sites and commercial setups, conducting specialised workshops by professionals, inviting experts from the industry to deliver guest lectures. 

Industry - Institute Interaction

To provide deeper understanding, certain additional inputs are given to integrate classroom teaching with actual practice. This is achieved through participation in various trade fairs, exhibitions, seminars and shows to keep abreast with the latest trends in the industry. The School receives consultation projects from organisations which are passed on the students for exposure and hands-on experience. 

Social and Environmental Concerns

Besides providing academic knowledge and training, the students are encouraged to actively participate in socially relevant projects and activities to instill human values. They are motivated to take up socially relevant topics/ problems for their thesis and design projects. For instance, the School has recently concluded a prestigious project with the Indian Institution of Technology, Delhi, to design ‘Enabled Clothing for Elderly Women in India’.
