Why Study in Mit Institute Of Design Apply Now
MAEER's MIT Institute of Design started its operations in August 2006, guided by the days leading minds in the Indian design education, with a plan to develop its identity as a research & training institution of highest international quality.
In pursuance of one of our future aspirations, we at the MAEER's MIT Institute of Design added a further dimension to the programmes of design learning at our campus. The concept of Design Habitat is in fact a logical and organic extension of our stated philosophy that ensures a total generalist ambience to enable design learning. It would evolve as an overarching concept around the functional framework of the Design Institute which remains an integral component of the Habitat.
It is into this kind of stimulating and inspirational environment that mentors from various design related disciplines are invited to interact with the design learners and challenge their young minds to explore newer territories that should complement and reinforce their ongoing design learning. Here are some of the disciplines from which these mentors would be selected: biomechanics, alternative energy systems, linguistics (semiotics), performing arts, plastic arts, design anthropology, sociology, perception and cognitive psychologies and several more. The mentors would ensure that the level of interaction is such that it eventually leads to a learning that is comprehensive, sustained and focused in depth, and directly or indirectly design related.
Distributing the course contents in form of projects is an obvious and time tested method. Each project would be formulated so as to necessitate participation of a mentor and one or two young aspirants pursuing the same discipline as the participating mentor. The team thus formed would be led by a member of the permanent faculty of the Institute. Sometimes the project might be so designed as to the participation of mentors from more than one discipline if needed. The enhanced scope of activities at the Design Habitat would also mean that we reinforce, within the present areas of learning at the Institute. To this effect, two new centers of advanced learning are being envisaged for the near future. The first is the Faculty of Architecture. The major emphasis here would be on humane and logical application of Twenty First Century technologies, arts and sciences toward solving the problems of human habitat in India. The second is a Centre for Theatre and Body Language. Even though it might seem to have been inspired by the Bauhaus Theatre of the 1930's, its major thrust would be on exploring the worlds of light and sound effects and ways of communication by means of body language.
Design education at MITID relies on a very thriving and vibrant culture where in the students organizes and participate in multiple activities that go beyond the academics. This not only helps them to become a well rounded professional but also a good human being who is response to its immediate socio-cultural environment. Some of the activities on the campus are as below

Graphic Design Institutes in India have been training candidates for a long time but most of them are very narrowly focused on imparting software application skills. These Graphic Design Institutes in India are unable to impart the sound theoretical and conceptual understanding that's required to be a professional graphic designer.
The learners of Retail and Exhibition Design find that the courses of study, besides concentrating on a rigorous learning of advanced graphic reproduction techniques, would also require them to gain an insight into creating images in the fourth dimension that is, moving images.
The Animation Industry in India is now going globally to create its own identity. It increases the demand for thinking minds and trained professionals like ‘Animators’. Animation Design course at MIT ID has always nurtured and mentored these thinking minds to face the challenges of tomorrow both in the global and local context.

Thus, in this spirit, it is heavily aligned with the philosophy and concepts of Design pedagogy of MIT ID.
Film and Video Design Courses
Courses in Film and Video Design put emphasis on a strong narrative content. To communicate using the Film and Video media, one needs to use equipment like film and video cameras and editing systems. Moreover, conceptual processes in addressing the communication needs of the social and commercial sectors should also be rigorously followed. Of the many Film and Video design courses, the one at MITID emphasizes on the holistic learning.
