Chandigarh Design School received the prestigious Best Design Skill Institute of the Year Award at the Indian Education and EdTech Awards held on January 20, 2023, at Hyatt Regency, Gurugram. With a proud 26-year legacy in Design Education, the school, supported by strategic partnerships facilitated by SXILL, has emerged as a pioneer in addressing the gap in UXUI learning in India. Notably, their collaborations with colleges and universities enable the delivery of industry-quality education at various campuses.
This accolade highlights the Prime Minister of India’s emphasis on skill development, with Chandigarh Design School leading the way in Design Skilling across the nation. The school has teamed up with NSDC to offer high-quality education in Animation, 3D Modeling, 2D and 3D Animation, and UXUI Design, among other essential skills. Moreover, it is launching courses in Game Design and Development, as well as Film Making and Acting, with partnerships with leading global companies and Mumbai-based studios to ensure training relevance.
Innovative Training Methodology
Mr. Vineet Raj Kapoor, India’s nominated Expert for the Worldskills competition and actively engaged in the Design and Innovation sector, commended Chandigarh Design School’s unique training approach. He emphasized the school’s collaboration with top Indian studios, who play a pivotal role in guiding students individually each semester. This distinctive system involves prominent partner studios of national repute, conducting comprehensive reviews of students’ work and offering valuable recommendations.
Chandigarh Design School’s methodology effectively eliminates the necessity for a separate placement activity for their top-performing students. Furthermore, they are open to assisting their competitors and peers in implementing this successful approach at their own universities and institutions. The school takes pride in its alumni who have excelled in leading organizations such as Ericsson, Sony, Yatra.com, Gaana.com, and have even directed popular animated shows like ‘Motu Patlu.’ Independent artists like Sukh-E, the singer, have also been nurtured by the school. Notably, Chandigarh Design School graduates have gone on to establish leading IT companies in the region, including Intelligaia, Trabug, and Creative Peppers.
Neelu Kapoor, the Founder of SXILL and herself a National Jury (Graphic Design) for NSDC backed Indiaskills said, “SXILL offer a unique ‘Design your own Curriculum’ option in line with the National Education Policy as well as a World Class Animation and Design Finishing School SXILUP for Animation and Design pass outs from Colleges. In this endeavor SXILL is backed by top studios like Lakshya Digital, Digitoonz, Greengold (Chhota Bheem), Technicolor, Virtualsoft and more. Our students consistently win International Awards like 11secondclub and GO48!”
