IITH has started a minor in design for its undergraduate students. Minor in Design is a course that sensitises students from the engineering disciplines to creative, applicable and aesthetic dimensions of the interaction between technology and people. Spread across four semesters, this course begins with basic exercises in designerly ways of doing and practice and ends with the students engaging in small independent projects. The aim is to inculcate and cultivate the spirit of making amongst the students from core engineering and sciences.
