Art & Fashion Design

Fashion designing involves creating designs through a systematic process of research, development using a wide range of illustration techniques.

Realizing this, the Department has made art and design sensitivity to all aspects of visual experience central to the program. The task of the artist and art historian is to celebrate visual experience into a variety of media, technology and styles.

The department offers diploma and certificate, with both internal and external (UBTEB) Exams.
