Highlights

  • Minor Programme

    A Minor Programme is an additional program of choice that can be pursued along with the main degree program. Students can register for this with the University. This is offered to meet the aspirations of high performing students.

  • Proctoral System

    Under the Proctoral System, every student is assigned a faculty member as a Proctor or a mentor.

    These mentors offer guidance, support and encouragement to students, helping them as they progress along their academic journey. From the choice of electives to their academic performance, from attendance to meeting their credit requirements, students can approach these mentors with any and every query.

    Proctors also interact with parents/​guardians and keep them updated on the progress of students.

    To ensure that they reap the benefits of the Proctoral System, students are advised to be in regular contact with their Proctors.

  • Innovation Centre

    At the Innovation Centre, students team up with faculty members to bring their innovative ideas to life.

    Ideas are assessed based on their relevance to — and impact on — society. These are then translated into working projects that are entered in national and international competitions, and for registration as patents.

Over its 21 years of existence, the Faculty of Fashion Design has ensured that students gain access to industry while ensuring academic rigour, offering students a program that —

  • Uses application-based learning.
  • Provides interdisciplinary opportunities across engineering, medicine and management faculties.
  • Offers internship, training and placement support with various worldwide universities and industries.
  • Incorporates expert guest lectures from various institutions and industries.
  • Conducts studies in small batches to encourage in-depth learning.
  • Involves Group Projects and a Dissertation as output.
  • Incorporates partnership with the Department and Handloom and Textiles, Government of Karnataka for the setting up of Centre for Garment Design, Manufacturing and Quality Control.

  • We offer accommodation in student hostels on our campus and even offer third-party off-campus hotels where necessary to ensure students can focus on what matters the most.
  • Our on-campus facilities include WiFi at any time of the day, 24/7.
  • From a host of eateries and laundry facilities, we ensure that students have access to all facilities.
  • We encourage students to participate in co-curricular activities on campus which include sports and cultural events, both at a university level and a faculty level.
