Asia's biggest design institute to come up

New Delhi, Dec 3, 2012, DHNS: :

Work on centre to start soon: A K Walia

Work on Institute of Design at a cost of around Rs 200 crore will soon start in the east campus of the Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University located at Surajmal Vihar, said A K Walia, Delhi higher edcucation minister.

He was addressing the convocation ceremony of the University at the Dwarka campus on Monday.

“The institute of Design will be Asia’s biggest centre,” said Walia.
A senior officer said the blueprint of the institute has been sent to the Delhi chief minister recently.

“The work on the institute will start soon. The idea is to make a design institute which will be on the lines of National Institute of Design (NID), but much bigger resource wise,” the officer said.

School of Architecture and Planning, located in the varsity’s Kashmere Gate campus will also be shifted to the East Campus. “The completion of the project is expected in two years,” said the officer.

Walia said IP University is doing well in a private public partnership (PPP) model of education.

“At a time PPP model is not working so well is other countries, IP University has set an example of success of this model of governance. It has registered significant growth in a short span of time,” the minister said.

D K Bandyopadhyay, vice chancellor said the university is planning to start three new centres of studies – Centre of Study of Indigenous Literature, Centre for Film and Culture Studies and Centre for Development and Planning.

Lieutenant governor Tejender Khanna called learning a ‘lifelong process’.

“Academic ambience plays a vital role in the growth of any academic institution besides good teachers, receptive students and state-of-the-art infrastructure. Domain knowledge combined with human values is the need of the hour,” Khanna said.

On the occasion, 67 students were conferred with gold medals and 15,945 students were awarded with degree certificate.

15 students were awarded with plaque/ citation for obtaining 90 per cent and more marks. 21 students were conferred with a PhD degree. Honorary PhD was not given this year.
