Courses

Postgraduate Program in Design (M.Des.)

The Postgraduate Program in Design (M.Des.) at Srishti is a program specifically designed for graduates or experienced professionals who wish to extend and enhance their design knowledge and practice. The program is driven by an inter-disciplinary engagement with theories, methodologies and advanced skills of design thinking and doing.

The engagement is divided into two phases. The first year focuses on understanding and appreciating the design thinking theories, methodologies and advanced skills. And the second year focuses on applying the understanding to drive a reflective inquiry into a complex real-world wicked problem.

The Postgraduate Program in Design (M.Des.) thereby offers a unique opportunity to chart a new direction in one’s creative practice towards contributing to knowledge creation and expansion going beyond the traditional skill-based design roles.
This program is for graduates or experienced professionals of design, business, engineering, architecture or related disciplines.

The students could choose a particular pathway of inquiry amongst the following pathways offered:

In the first year the student takes theory, methods and advanced skills courses offered by all the pathways, navigating through them with the help of a faculty mentor. In the second year, the student, based on the pathway chosen, will either work towards a graduating thesis or a Capstone Project with a Faculty advisor.

Graduating students can chart their careers not only in the burgeoning software/hardware industry, but also in government, NGOs, & urban and rural development think tanks as Strategic Design Innovators and practitioners. We also see some students becoming successful social entrepreneurs shaping the emerging ecology of start-up organisations in India through design driven innovation. The program also sets up the graduating students for pursuing high quality postgraduate education in design research, leading to a career in academic or industrial R&D.
