The 2-year programme is split into smaller modules, so that the students can not only get a qualification but also enhance the career opportunities with each module. The two-year programme allows the students to do it in parts with intermediate certifications. Students earn credits and build their qualification into a PG degree or a Master's Degree at JK Lakshmipat University. The course contents have been divided into the following modules:
Project based learning of skills and techniques associated with design thinking.
Learners shall be equipped with tools and methodologies, which help in developing a problem-solving mindset as an augmentation to their professional personas.
Opportunity scope post completion includes Innovation centric roles in their core disciplines and many more
The latter half of the module shall help learners build an understanding of the elements & principles of design. Learning outcomes include understanding of identity, branding, packaging & storytelling etc, culminating into a design project.
Courses like Product UI, and wireframing helps the learners to come up with objects and solutions that cater to the human/ social need in a user-centric and integrated manner. Opportunity scope post completion of this module includes product management, design apprenticeships, interdisciplinary roles in consultancies, design roles in startups in UI UX, design and manufacturing, brand and identity design and many more.

The last part of the programme is split into two semesters, and then the final semester is allocated to a graduation/capstone project that brings together the learnings of the entire program.
The program builds over the previous block by foraying into advanced study of triggers like materials, techniques, product detailing etc. Graduating from a technically simple product, the last semesters deal with design of technically complex products, experiences and systems thinking in design.
