Unlike in other disciplines, placement of each individual design student depends on the portfolio of work which is prepared during all four years of the programme. The best projects are curated and compiled in a portfolio which is presented with the potential industry employers during the placements.
Typically, a student with a good portfolio of projects is able to demonstrate his/her knowledge, skills and capacity to the future employer, and the placement at CMRU SOD takes place based on this.
Young designers in India are sought after and the creative industry in India needs fresh talent.
The remuneration package for a Bachelor’s level design graduate currently averages from 4 to 6 Lakhs per annum, but it is not unusual for design graduates to receive placement offers even upto 12 Lakhs per annum, depending on their demonstrable capacity and company offering.
CMRU SOD is dedicated to collaborating closely with the creative industry, ensuring students receive early exposure, work on collaborative projects, intern during their programmes at CMRU School of Design even prior to the final year, and making them prepared for a successful career in design.
