Testimonials

Bachelor of Design [B.DES]
Second Year (2018-19) student

“The college is the very example of what 60+ years of experience of culture and knowledge would result in. NID is a very respectable college and very prestigious. The faculty is a very experienced bunch of people and are one of the most sought after people in India. They are very respected but are also friendly with the students. In NID there is no rule to call your faculty by addressing them as Sir or Ma'am; instead you can call them by their name. This creates a positive environment of learning.”
