Into our 4th year of operations, IILM was one of the pioneers in the private sector to set up an institute for design. Quick to respond to the demands of the industry, IILM set up the School of Design in August 2004.

IILM believes in an integrated approach to teaching design. We have some of the best of design educators involved in teaching design. The approach has been to integrate skills, knowledge and process in all the design disciplines. All our faculty come from premier design institutions. Having benchmarked ourselves with the best of design institute, we have the best student-faculty ratio for design institutes in the country.

The culture of learning at IILM’s School of Design is hands-on. Students are encouraged to work on assignments and projects that contribute to their working skills as much as their thinking skills. Classrooms, Workshops, Labs and even the corridors are fertile learning grounds. Senior students are given opportunities to work on live, professional projects to get a first-hand feel of a professional design assignment.
