The admission process of the Industrial Design course depends on the college in which the student is applying. Many institutes have a merit-based selection process. In this selection process, the students will be selected on the basis of merit i.e. marks secured in the last academic examination. Moreover, there are some colleges that offer admission on the basis of the marks secured in the entrance examination. Those students who have cleared the minimum cut-off marks will be called in for group discussions and personal interviews. Only after clearing the counseling rounds, aspirants will be eligible for admission. However, a few institutions offer lateral entry admission to the diploma holders directly.
