GDPD commences with a two semester rigorous Foundation Programme. This programme is geared to assist in developing attitudes, sensorial skills and aesthetic sensitivity necessary for further specialisation in specific areas of design. The purpose is to create awareness of the environment and to arouse the students' creative faculties. The primary concern of the Foundation Programme is to introduce the students to the fundamentals of design, to initiate them to design as a creative problem solving process, and to develop a highly evolved ‘design' attitude and understanding of the relationship with culture and human senses, emotions and feelings. In the Foundation Programme, basic design courses are augmented by related studies of Science and Liberal Arts, to help and develop an understanding of the Indian milieu, user needs, applications, processing of design and synthesis. The Foundation Programme is geared to inculcate the development of values, attitudes, materials and sensorial skills necessary for any design specialisation. It aspires to create an awareness of the changing environment by constantly relating the students' learning to real life situations. The programme provides the necessary direction, stimuli, facilities and experience to foster creativity and thereby help each individual to discover their own identity, ability and potential. The Foundation Programme is the basis on which the remaining design curriculum is built. It also makes students appreciate the multidisciplinary nature of design.
