MS SHILPI GUPTA (Chairperson and Managing Director)


DIA, established in 2005 is now poised to become one of the best design institutes in India, as is evident by the numerous awards we receive every year. Our core philosophy “Design India” is inherent in our approach and is reflected in our student's ability to dream big and work hard towards turning their dreams into reality.

We do not like to think of ourselves as a college, but more as a planned experience of exposure, where each student is immersed in the real world of industry and work from the first day onwards. We believe that an integrated approach to Design Education and to the skill of Design Thinking is best understood through industry exposure.

With students fired with the determination to excel, a competent and dedicated faculty, carefully designed curriculum and the optimum infrastructure, DIA has grown to be a reckoning force in the world of design education. Our target is to equip each and every student of DIA with the best education and infrastructure to help them achieve the best in life.

Given that every professional today works on a global platform, we make sure that our students get the right international exposure through student exchange, international participation in workshops, conferences, exhibitions, and study programs abroad. DIA is also pursuing many goals from the Indian government's national policy on design with its prime emphasis on innovation and the development of an international reputation as “designed in India” and “made for the world”. Our goal is to produce design gurus, who use the power of Design to inculcate innovation in any field they touch. We wish all the young creators the very best and look forward to seeing you!
