School of Art & Architecture

  • The School of Art & Architecture at KITE is designed to be an inventive place of learning. The campus itself has been designed to reflect the philosophy at KITE – and the programs at the Design School will in turn reflect that philosophy. In an environment that encourages students to collaborate with each other while challenging their own limits, the School is committed to a transformative impact on its surroundings.

    As a part of the ecosystem at KITE, students at the School of Arts & Architecture will get a chance to work with students in other programs, initially helping them design products, online portals, and marketing materials for their projects, but eventually contribute works of both value and beauty to the community around KITE.

    Students at the School of Arts & Architecture will also learn to use the most relevant computer design tools available in this day and age so that their ideas can be translated into a tangible form. In essence, the School will provide its graduates with the critical balance between aesthetics and practicality.

  • Our society’s complex socio-cultural issues necessitate the need to have good visual communication to help bridge the gap between people giving the ideas and those receiving them. Communication Design is a platform for futuristic thinking and therefore, requires people who are thoughtful, creative and willing to move out of their comfort zones to challenge the status quo.

    The program will seek to develop technical skills in students as well as develop their sense of aesthetics to ensure our graduates are solution-oriented and innovative with a good sense of design. To ensure KITE students develop a futuristic vision, our curriculum includes a thorough understanding of history so students can critically analyze the past and relate it to contemporary issues to come up with viable solutions. They will also be given a sound understanding of communication design - from typography, photographic skills, illustration and drawing skills, to story boarding and website design.

    At the end of the final year, all students enrolled in the program will be given the opportunity to exhibit their portfolio to build a name for themselves in the market for future opportunities.
