Prof. Rupinder Singh

Dean’s Message

The education of an architect, at its core, is not about knowhow, but “think-how.” And inculcating this ability fundamentally changes the student. The avant-garde architect is almost always at the vanguard of social change. Thus, the age old issue of a house became a “machine for living” for Le Corbusier in the 30s, typology for Gulio Argan in the 60s, the question of “to dwell” by the followers of Heideggar in the 80s, and a formal purist exercise for the 90s and soon with the new “digital-ready” generation, a physical interface—an analogue of the digital GI.  Thus, at its core, the education of the architect is about questioning; and this is what we focus here at Sharda University. There are, for us, four foundations in the education of an architect vocational skills, professional skills, liberal thinking and ethical. Vocational skills include not just drafting or model making, but also the 3s—space allocation, structures and services. Professional skills include not only “design thinking,” but also digital and parametric thinking. Third is the ability to question in a systematic and sustained manner. The ethical is obviously self-explanatory. As a School then, we dont valorise rote-learning, but “thinking by doing.” Architects make things. To paraphrase Marx, we change society.

    Abhishek

    At Sharda University, I learnt that, design is not only the most integral foundation of a product but also an essential that gives a unique identity to it, and at the same time provides an easy functionality for everyone to comprehend and use. This is the definition of design which I learnt, experienced and incorporated in my personal and professional life. In the 4 years of my graduation at Department of Design at Sharda University I learnt about the smallest details and biggest facts about designing and myself. I still remember in my foundation year where I felt that I am still in a junior class and my teachers are helping me to understand what is design by distinct mediums, the environment was ever widening. By my final year of graduation, I was accomplishing my thesis and designing a product of very my own. The thing I appreciate the most about the design department at the Sharda University is that, apart from our chosen design stream, we get to work and interact with faculties, intellectuals and other students; as a result, we also learn about other designing fields. The workshops and events also help us learn about the design practicality and possibilities. In conclusion, I can proudly say that i am Graduate designer from Sharda University.

    As a student of Interior Design, I Utkarsh Gupta, have been exposed to an uplifting experience of being part of Sharda University's Department of Design. In here, I found qualified mentors, who advice and mentor me, guide me into the right path to help me achieve my dreams and goals as an Interior Designer. Extracurriculars like site visits, competitions and client interactions help me grow into my future role as an interior designer. Apart from academics Sharda encourages growth. The university campus with its diversity and amenities truly feels like "home". Design is a state of mind it's developed over time, it is an expression of yourself and of the place, Sharda has helped me recognize and express those feelings. Sharda has nurtured the potential within me to make me the Designer I am.

    I believe that design as a field is and always will be something very personal, the passion for which comes from within an individual. One just needs to strive hard to harvest this passion and I am proud to say that Department of Design, Sharda University, was able to help find me this treasure in myself. The guidance and support I received from my mentors were beyond comparison. They have always strived in bringing out the passion for design out of every student, who simultaneously had the willingness to travel on the path of self-discovery. The learning experience in Sharda University not only involved academics and practical studio sessions, but also off campus activities like industrial visits and day excursions, which helped in gaining a lot of exposure. Moreover, having studied in a diversity provided a lot of exposure in understanding various cultures which in the long run, is beneficial in the field of design.

    One of the best times that Ive had, from every single perspective – academics, teachers, wonderful ambiance to learn, friends – the entire experience. The professors are dedicated and co-operative. The amount of support that is offered is unlimited and incomparable. Sharda University played a big role in not just helping me become the successful graduate but also by providing an opportunity to kick start my career by being part of design & development team of Sharda Uzbekistan Refurbishment design project. Time flew by, but the memories and lessons learnt will be treasured for a lifetime.

    Three years have passed surprisingly quickly, yet it was memorable at each step of the way. I feel immensely privileged to be part of Sharda University. To be able to undertake a degree that I feel genuinely passionate about has been a rewarding experience. The learning method was challenging at the beginning as we are international students but as the program evolved, I have developed skills to allow me to focus better on what I need to learn. Living in India and discovering the Indian culture by travelling around the country and befriending Indian classmates is truly stimulating. Being able to get constant encouragement and support from the Professors in academic activities as well as outside the campus was an incredible privilege for which I will always remain grateful. It has opened doors that I didnt know it was going to open.

    Sharda University is a place of learning, fun, culture, literature and many such life preaching activities. It's true what they say; the world is here at Sharda University. In the Department of Design, we have a panel of good faculty members who are excellent designers to learn from, having a deep knowledge in their fields. Each and every faculty member is very supportive. Studying Design at Sharda has helped me become mature, sensible, independent and self-believing by letting me understand responsibilities that otherwise would have never come my way.

    Sharda University is truly a global university where education is quantified and stats driven. I enjoy a lot while studying here in a huge campus with a large accommodation and numerous shops and eat-outs. The faculty members are highly knowledgeable and always available for help. The university cares a lot for us with high security and medical facilities within the campus. I also like the well-organized online attendance system.
