About Faculty of Design – VGU

Faculty of Deisgn VGU is a dynamic forum for exchanging ideas, methods and professional experience. Our students and faculty combine curiosity, experimentation and enthusiasm in the pursuit of learning. At CODE, we believe that finding a design solution, creating a work of art and facilitating the production of a creative team are intellectual processes of undeniable value. Developing critical awareness through hands-on research and discussion is essential to professional maturation and individual growth. Design Practice demands a high level of personal commitment and discipline, and we expect our students to participate actively in class so that they can explore differing points of view and engage our creative resources.

We are rooted in a city of primary Art, Architecture and design production. Experiencing the rich culture, heritage and architecture of Jaipur city provides a rich source of visual inspiration. Sharing this experience with individuals from many different organisations under collaborative terms gives our students a unique perspective on the variety of expression existing throughout the World.

Design as Career
  • Design and its principles have a greater impact on our lives than we might imagine. From our physical surroundings and infrastructure to the things we wear and buy, everything around us is embedded with design.
  • Thinking differently can often make you feel like an outsider, but in the design and creative industries it’s the very thing that will accelerate your career. Curiosity and creativity are valued by a community of people who understand, support and challenge you.
  • Art, design and architecture are among Victoria’s fastest growing industries, and progressive and collaborative thinking is in demand across major sectors including education, health, agriculture, and manufacturing. Design not only enhances the economy, but is leading it into the future.
