World University of design, India’s First Design university, has been established at Rajiv Gandhi Educational City, Sonipat, Haryana. This is the first institute with Art, Design and Architecture course under the same roof as is claimed by the organization.
WUD has collaborations with institutes like the Italian University of Design, the Vancouver Film School and the University of West Scotland. The varsity is also planning to collaborate with Emily Carr University – Canada, Oxford Brookes University – UK and Huddersfield University – UK.
Director General of WUD, Dr. Sanjay Gupta said
"Contemporary Design education not only creates value and contributes to competitiveness, prosperity, and well-being of a nation but also enables collaboration, hyper-specialization and moving beyond the limits of future thinking and existing technology. We constantly work to empower youth to take ownership of the journey towards a sustainable economy and a future led by innovation,"
"WUD will be a strategically critical platform for providing youth with the tools they need to drive India's future development. Education is changing and as we increasingly face the growing challenges of a complex socio business environment, high quality trans-disciplinary education with a design foundation and thinking, becomes more critical than ever," he added.
