Observing the importance that ‘design’ could bring to pedagogy and the integration of mainstream disciplines in engineering and the arts, PES University has decided to set-up a Design School. PESU Design School aims to be the best and the first-batch commences 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 and 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 AND ENGINEERING DISCIPLINES AT PESU, THEREBY LEVERAGING THE STRENGTHS OF A DIVERSE AND ENTREPRENEURIAL PESU CULTURE. IT IS EXPECTED THAT STUDENTS IN DESIGN ALSO LEAD SUCH COLLABORATIVE INITIATIVES CULMINATING IN STARTING UP THEIR OWN PRACTICE AND BECOMING ENTREPRENEURS. HOWEVER, STUDENTS COULD ALSO CHOOSE TO BE EMPLOYED IN THE ORGANIZATIONS THAT PESU CONSISTENTLY ATTRACTS FROM PLACEMENTS.
