The key courses offered for Industrial Design revolve around developing design solutions, ideation, prototyping and project management. Essential knowledge and skills will be imparted, dealing with history of Design, Research Methodology, Sketching and Visualization, Technical Drawing, Materials and processes, as well as marketing and entrepreneurship.
Continuing in studio based learning tradition of SADA, students in this program will develop a Design-centric approach to real world problem-solving at numerous levels of complexity. With collaboration and input from established NUST schools, the industry, and professionals from diverse background, the program promises to enrich the students in a multitude of skills. Radical and creative thinking will be promoted through experimentation in the studios and workshops, as well as seminars.
Rapid prototyping and digital ideation technologies will be introduced to the students to enable competitiveness in the international market and aims to be recognized amongst the best design schools in the region, by producing competitive Designers.
Upon completion of the B.ID Degree and relevant office practice experience, students have an option to work directly with numerous industry oriented offices in various capacities. The B.ID Program recognizes that design is an activity that fundamentally shapes our world and influences the processes of change. SADA aims for its students to find their own place, from where they can lead or contribute to these processes. Although there will be a focus on product and furniture design, there is no limitations to the field; understanding very well that most of tomorrow’s products and services do not yet exist today.
Aim of the course is to integrate forward-thinking and engage with new possibilities, to engage with design as a cultural activity in the context of art, society, the environment, humanity, technology, and diverse forms and scales of production. The nature of the course is pluralistic; encouraging diversity in thinking, opinions and ideologies.
