MIT Institute of Design started its operations in August 2006. The institute holds decade of excellence in design education, practice and research. MIT ID is committed to contribute to the design ecosystem and enhance the quality of academics in coming years. One of the important steps in this direction is MIT ID becoming a part of MIT Art, Design & Technology University, under the Government of Maharashtra.
With a decade of excellence and pursuance of one of our future aspirations, MIT Institute of Design with 1300+ creative minds on campus and 1000+ alumni professionals have added a further dimension to the program of design learning at our campus.
The learners and faculty mentors have registered their presence by winning more than 50 awards in various categories at national & international level, including prestigious 2 Red Dot awards won by our alumni’s and more than 20 design registrations.
MIT Institute of Design is working closely with national & international design community. Being a member of CUMULUS, WDO (World Design Organization), MIT ID has collaborated with more than 10 reputed Universities across the world.
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
