Design Studies

A masters refers to the completion of a graduate study program that prepares students to further their knowledge of a specific subject or advance their careers. The majority of masters are granted by state or public universities.

The design field is incredibly broad in its scope, offering a wide variety of career opportunities. Professionals working in this discipline employ creative and problem solving skills to answer consumer, business and institutional needs in both the public and private sectors.

India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country with over 1.2 billion people, and the most populous democracy in the world

M.Des. in Public Space Design

Participatory action research for solid waste management at Gubbi - Karnataka

Vision

Public spaces are interior and exterior spaces, as well as permanent and impermanent spaces, for movement and passage; encounter and exchange; as well as entertainment and leisure. These spaces go beyond the physical and into the realms of the virtual, social, cultural, and emotional. In India, where tradition and modernity coexist in layered complexity, these spaces include streets and pavements; parks, maidans, and bagaans; railway stations and metro stations; shopping malls and bazaars; exhibitions, museums and gallery spaces. Indian cities face the constant struggle to design, maintain and improve the inhabitation of public spaces and their qualities, not just in urban areas but also in peri-urban areas. A successful and liveable city, therefore, needs to have a network of well-designed and inclusive public spaces.... [-]


M.Des. in Information Arts and Information Design Practice

Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology
Campus Full time 2 years July 2019 India Bengaluru

M.Des. in Information Arts and Information Design Practice

Vision

We preserve and transmit culture, language and all historical record, whether myth or real, using the power of narrative. Narrative or stories that are not just the oral and the written, but in art, in dance, music, and drama, embracing philosophy, history, politics, the environment and the social sciences.

The Information Arts and Information Design Practices Course at Srishti will explore the idea that all data is narrative. Information is narrative, but with purposefulness. Identity and information environments are intrinsically linked.

Stories craft our identity, they heal, inform, challenge and are the stuff of which our lives are made of. While visualization, interpretation, and communication of data have been largely the focus of the field of Information arts and design around the world, at Srishti we dig deeper to engage with ethics, conflicts, politics, hidden realities and debates around data and information. How can art, design, and technology be used to push the boundaries of information and create points for action? What can traditional practices from different cultures offer to the interpretation of contemporary data? Where can art and science meet to activate alternative research? How does one train at a reflective self in relation to the world to be a storyteller who mines diverse data to arrive at deeper truths? These and more questions serve as a guide map to engaging with and creating within this program. This course is an attempt to explore how to dissolve discipline based... [-]


M.Des. in Human Centered Design

Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology
Campus Full time 2 years July 2019 India Bengaluru

M.Des. in Human Centered Design

Vision

Human-Centered Design (HCD), broadly, is an approach to solve problems while keeping the concerns of the humans at the center of it. The output of the problem-solving approach could either be a product, a service, a system, or space. HCD is increasingly being used to solve complex problems through the design of digital products, services, and systems. Digital technology is becoming the core of most, if not all, aspects of human experiences. Hence it is vital to not only shape digital technology in ways that benefit each and every human being, but also to critically inquire into the inherent assumptions and their limitations while following a human-centered design approach. The M.Des in HCD at Srishti fosters an independent, self-critical, creative, and focused inquiry into human experiences with digital technology, both existing and emerging. This inquiry is driven by the activity of speculative and critical making with the digital material. The students will develop their own unique practice of human-centered design along the intersections of three paths. Namely,... [-]

M.Des. in Design Computation

Vision

Objects that ‘behave’ and ‘communicate’ have rapidly moved from the realm of science fiction to our homes, shelves, and pockets. Products are no longer static but are expected to interact, inform and guide. In a similar vein, data is now available in quantities larger than was imagined in the recent past. Patterns have to be seen and conveyed, often interactively in real-time.

We facilitate design and art professionals of the future, who can work in multiple contexts, make complex connections, lead and manage change. We facilitate and inculcate working with autonomy towards a clear self-position, be it as an entrepreneur, a design lead or as an independent creative practitioner.... [-]
