Graduates will be equipped with a set of transdisciplinary and in-demand competencies, to take on C-Suite positions as they grow in their careers.

BITS Design School will introduce a four-year, residential, Bachelor of Design (Honours) programme in the academic year 2024-25, followed by a master’s degree programme and a faculty development programme for Design Educators over the next two years. 

Admissions open on February 26, 2024 for the founding class who will be taught by international visiting faculty and a marquee Indian faculty trained at the top design schools in the world. In the second year of the programme, students can choose from the five streams offered for specialisation — Physical Product Design, Digital Product Design (UI/UX), Human Centred Design, Experience Design, and Visual Design
