CEPT University (BDes), 2021


CEPT University, since its inception in 1962, has been known to set benchmarks in building design. It is recognized globally, for its premier architectural design education. However, as the world moves towards standardizing building products and practices to facilitate optimization of resources, manpower and time; the building methods are still inefficient in managing these. There is a definite dearth of building solutions in India.

The course, spread over ten semesters, will focus on developing systems thinking into the field of building products’ design. The students shall be exposed to the various elements of building technology, structural engineering, production processes, material sciences, form making, detailing and design management. A human centric and hands on approach to design will generate professionals sensitive to aesthetics, product performance, sustainability and ease of manufacturing.
