Ceramic and Glass discipline offers tremendous expressive qualities in the domain of art and creativity as well as functional possibilities in the realm of craft, architectural spaces, healthcare, hospitality industry, home décor, hi tech products  and lifestyle product categories.

This program at NID takes inspiration from both art and craft traditions of the country and it equally recognize its potential and scope in the future of mass production and new technologies. An extensive exposure provided towards craft sector, studio based practice as well as ceramic and glass industry brings in awareness towards wider range of production techniques and variety of work environments & work culture.

Following the core philosophy and approach of NID's pedagogical approach towards 'learning by doing', supports students to develop their basic skills, dexterity & conceptual thinking with the ceramic and glass materials aligned with theoretical and practical inputs towards material technology; providing clarity and innovative approach to explore and experiment with the medium.  Moreover, exposure to allied materials, such as bamboo, wood, metal & leather besides core materials is provided for a wider knowledge base.

Initial years provide critical inputs into fundamentals of design; including form, colour, structure, space, light etc. to enhance the sensibility and sensitivity of the students toward aesthetic & function of design. In addition, inputs in ergonomics make them aware of the usability aspects.

Deeper understanding of existing local-global concerns & ever changing social fabric forms a critical part of the curriculum; supported with critical thinking, the process aids student’s quest to explore, visualize, seek opportunity and demonstrate design interventions for the emerging contexts. Global exposure through Student exchange programs with several international educational institutes adds to their overall learning at NID.

The overall understanding of technology, production techniques, material skills enable the students to work within a variety of industry, producing tableware, tiles, sanitary ware etc,. Graduates are also well equipped to work with NGOs, design studio set up’s, craft sector or else set up their own enterprises and generate wealth and employment for the times to come.
