Faculty of Design is committed to the new educational model inspired by the idea of design and innovation as transformative forces in society. Parents, Students, Researchers, Educators, Collaborators, Promoters, Investors and Developers are welcome to experience and become the part of preferred destination in Design Education and Research in India.

Design industry is one of the fastest growing industry of 21st Century. Hence the demand for skilled designers has increased in last few decades. Manipal University Jaipur intends to nurture it as one of its core strengths and grow it as ‘Faculty of Design’ with a mission to become the most preferred global destination in Design Education and Research for students, researchers, faculty, collaborators, promoters, investors and developers.

Manipal University Jaipur is reknowned for it's best in-class infrastructure that nurtures design education with best in class facilities and a modern library.
