UPES organises Design Conclave to discuss role of design for business growth

University of Petroleum and Energy Studies (UPES) organised a Design Conclave in New Delhi on June 2, 2017. The one-day conclave was held to instill the importance of design thinking among young designers and students. A panel discussion on Role of Design for Business Growth which saw participation of veterans from the Design sector including industrialists, individuals from fashion, advertising and creative sector.

Anil Saini, Director (Design), General Motors Technical Center, India delivered the keynote address. Saini emphasised on the need for developing specialised skills like transportation design in design departments. 


During the event, the participants also gave thumbs-up to the government’s National Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Policy as it enables designers to protect their original designs, spurring creativity and stimulating innovation.


Setting an optimistic tone for discussions around ‘Design in India- Getting Ready for the Future’, Dr. Darlie O. Koshy, Director General & CEO, Institute of Apparel Management, & ATDC said, “Creative and design professions are the least probable ones to get affected by automation.”


The panel discussion was moderated by Saurabh Singh, Dy. General Manager, Design Studio, Maruti Suzuki India Limited. Industry leaders from the design sector unanimously agreed that design is at the core of any business’s success story and therefore, it’s time that designers are also taught business and strategy. Designers do not work in isolation and their work has direct impact on growth of a business. The leaders also agreed that despite the all-pervasive globalisation, design should be local to meet the requirements of consumers. The panel discussion saw participation from Ajay Gupta, Founder Director, First Touch Solutions Pvt. Ltd., Anupama Bhat, Co-founder, Design Lead, Kriya Studio, Chetan Sorab, Team Head, Industrial Design, LG Electronics India Pvt.

does unilateral impairment in one ear comes under pwd for a for a general candidate .

jishua thomas 26th Jan, 2020

hello aspirant,

Social Security disability benefits are available for profound hearing loss or deafness, but not for moderate or mild hearing loss. The Social Security Administration (SSA) details how significant your hearing loss must be to qualify for SSDI or SSI disability benefits. Don't turn a deaf ear to hearing disability in India. Hearing impairment is not an immediately visible disability. However, you will be all ears when we say one in 250 children in India suffers from severe to profound hearing loss.The minimum degree of disability should be 40% in order to be eligible for any concessions/benefits. The statistics are staggering - 360 million people in the world suffer from disabling hearing loss. This constitutes a substantial 5.3% of the world's population.

hope this helps

all the best


if my graduation result comes at the end of july so how can i able to attend the nimcet entrance exam which is held on may?

ayush mishra 25th Jan, 2020

Hey Ayush!

There would not be any problem even if your graduation results come after the date of NIMCET examination. The eligibility criteria of the NIMCET examination clearly states that the applicants who are in the last year of their bachelor’s programme are also eligible to apply for the exam and there won't be any problems in their application. However, the candidates must provide their proof or certificate of passing latest by September 15, 2020. So, even if your graduation results come by the end of July you can apply for NIMCET and give the certificate or proof of passing your graduation degree by September which would be available to you by then. Also, the  candidates who have completed or are completing their B.Sc./ B.Sc. (Hons)/BCA/ BIT course from Open Universities are also eligible to apply provided the programme is approved by UGC / AICTE and Distance Education Council (DEC) of Govt. of India.

Hope this helps you.
