Srishti Manipal Institute of Art, Design and Technology, offers a 5 (2+3) year Integrated Doctoral Program in the specialised field of Transition Design
The objective of the Integrated Doctoral Program is to create thoughtful, imaginative, possibly speculative, local and sustainable ways of seeing, understanding our built landscapes (such as urban inner city neighborhoods) or our natural historical and cultural landscapes such as the mountainous regions of Himalayas or the wet, hills and forests of the Western Ghats.
Guided by experienced mentors the aspiring practitioners will choose and work in one fragile ecosystem to build through systematic study, participative and inclusive design methods and independent study, their doctoral proposal.
In a world suffering from large scale impact of climate change, exploitative and extractive industrial development and flight of capital from rural landscapes and regions into crowded urban metropolis’s these scholars will begin to articulate policy frameworks, agendas for action that re-direct, rejuvenate and revive our cities and our hillsides in ways that heal the planet and bring value to diverse living populations.
