As a contemporary Faculty of Art, Design and Media recognises that user experience is fundamental to that praxis. Conceptual drivers underpin this people facing study that is student centred, and problem based.

Each programme has at its core, social responsibility, and a community engagement which seeking to be a vehicle for transformation.

There is a global paradigm shift emergent in design thinking that, to quote Bruce Mau, is about ‘the design of the world not about the world of design’.

That there are not barriers or discreet approaches but rhizomic and un-rehearsed ones, that is to say that learning develops in the process of learning and is not prescriptive and preconceived. Future programmes BA Sustainable Textile Design BA Print technology and BA Asian Design Studies will be developed after this initial phase. We are an international school that enhances the profile of Indonesian education in which everyone is valued and of value to society.
