Observing the importance that ‘design’ could bring to pedagogy & the integration of mainstream disciplines in engineering & the arts, PES University has decided to set-up a Design School.

PESU Design School aims to be the best & the first-batch Commenced from August 2016 within the undergraduate program. The UG program offers a four-year Bachelor of Design (B.Des) degree in three streams, Product Design, Interaction Design & Communication Design. The first-year is common to all the three streams. This degree is equivalent to the B.Tech/BE degrees offered in the mainstream. The Design School has a growing team of distinguished faculty members who bring in a wealth of professional experience in addition to having graduated from premier institutes (IISc/IITs). While working individually is encouraged, the students are expected to work collaboratively in teams with students from other design streams & engineering disciplines at pesu, thereby leveraging the strengths of a diverse & entrepreneurial pesu culture. It is expected that students in design also lead such collaborative initiatives culminating in starting up their own practice & becoming entrepreneurs. However, students could also choose to be employed in the organizations that pesu consistently attracts from placements.
