PLANNED COURSES

Art & Design

(Sixth semester paper for B.Tech [IT and Mathematical Innovations] at Cluster Innovation Centre, L-T-P = 0-3-0)

The paper has been introduced by the DIC, University of Delhi. It is comprehensive theory and practice curriculum on art and design operational from January 2016 onwards. The paper explores exercises in design to understand principles of design. It covers various stages and approaches related to design thinking and innovation, touching upon design paradigm in industrial design and social sciences.

Visual Arts & Aesthetics

(Seventh semester paper for B.Tech [IT and Mathematical Innovations] at Cluster Innovation Centre, L-T-P = 0-3-0)

Introduced by the DIC, it is a practice oriented paper to be offered from July 2016. The paper introduces students to various forms of art: media art, computer art, digital art and interactive art. It covers aesthetics strategies and brings together arts, technology and society.

World Art/Design Movements

Considering design inspirations are often drawn from history and movements that occurred in eras gone past, this course will cover the major world art movements with an understanding of their defining characteristics. This elective will be designed as a short-term workshop.

Data Display Designs

Imparting the knowledge of design for display of data and its analysis in various different contexts. Almost all students deal with complicated data and analytics and need useful aesthetic visualization of their final results.

Human Interaction Design

Designing human interaction in the field works involving research and data collection. The course aims to cover the role of social interventionism and qualitative research in design innovation.

Human-Centric Design

This course will explore the concept of building empathy
for the people design solutions are being developed for. The curriculum will seek to add perspective to design-based thinking with an iterative prototyping process and careful consideration of building the entire product experience.
