With an increasing focus on user experience, the importance of HCI, Interaction Design, and Design Thinking are also increasing rapidly in IT-based products and services. New/Digital media is at the heart of many aspects of design, as well as areas like social media, gaming, virtual/augmented reality, etc. The proposed center will have these main goals, 1) Have a world-class research program in different aspects of Design and New Media 2) Develop the next generation of engineers for industry sectors like IT product/services design, animation, and gaming, virtual reality, etc. 3) Engage actively with industrial partners for collaborative innovation and for strengthening the ecosystem in the country in these areas.
The center will also choose some domains/sectors to which it can apply the results of its efforts and R&D. Initially, the domain areas are Education, Healthcare, Transportation, and Digital Governance. For such domains, as solutions need to be tailored to the immediate social context in which they are applied, the Center will work closely with social bodies such as NGOs, Schools, Hospitals, etc. to co-create innovative design and media solutions for problems in these areas.
