The Textile Design discipline encourages students to engage with a wide spectrum of materials and technology, from the perspectives of industry, sustainability, social responsibility and inclusive design. The curriculum emphasizes on building a variety of skills through increasingly complex design projects related to the apparel, furnishing and allied industries, with inputs in social sciences, craft economics, trends, brand identity, technology and computer-aided design. The programme includes several interdisciplinary projects for enhancing livelihoods/public spaces/exhibition/interiors and for the automobile industry.

Exposure across all levels of industrial and craft production is given through field visits and a short training with industry, while fieldwork and research enable students to develop a deeper understanding of the cultural issues that impact design. Most graduates of the discipline find successful employment with the textile manufacturing industry or start their own companies, while others join social-developmental projects, pursue higher studies or seek careers in academics.
