Design is a practice based discipline and SID has established "Symbiosis Design Cell" within the institute to encourage industry to collaborate and seek consultancy services from our esteemed faculty members.
Design cell at SID is a consortium of faculty members which provides consultancy and training to the corporate. Projects are led by individual or a group of faculty members and collaboration is made with external professionals, technical staff and students, based on the requirement of specific project. The facilities at SID have been planned in such a way that it can function as a large design house.
The revenue generated by this activity is shared with the team that works on these projects. This is an important part of SID and is a revenue generating enterprise.
