IIT Delhi's Director, Prof V Ramgopal Rao said that they are delighted about offering this new course as this is the first time that IIT Delhi will be offering admission to undergraduate students for BDes other than Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics. He further said that he is hopeful that students who pass out from the institute after pursuing BDes will take up leadership positions in academia, industry, government, entrepreneurship, consulting, etc. BDes and various other design courses, which are in the pipeline at IIT Delhi, will reduce the huge demand-supply gap of quality design professionals, which India really needs to succeed as a creative economy.
Talking about the new course, Prof PV Madhusudhan Rao, Head, Department of Design at IIT Delhi, said that the course has been designed to provide high-quality education so that the students become industry-ready and are able to take on some of the challenges facing our country.
