SID focused on developing an innovative curriculum embracing international practice of design with Indian flavours. The curriculum is deeply rooted into Indian Craft, Art, Culture and aims at providing design solutions to the world population. SID creates an alcove to germinate design thoughts to unleash design skills on a prosperous dais. This creative dais aims at creating experts who can with their creative impulse get intoxicated within the ecstasy of design finally to participate and contribute to the most vibrant and the competitive profession of design. The work ambience enables one to explore the authentic conventional skills and the ethnic non-conventional skills, with no compromise to lead ahead the rooted traditions of art & craft to grow with the contemporary world of design.
