The undergraduate programme at DJAD starts with a one year Design Foundation Programme that concentrates on learning basic concepts of design involving courses that build the strong foundation for design thinking and practice. The programme helps students decide their area of specialization. The students need not select a major at the time of applying to DJAD but they choose their area of specialization towards the completion of the Foundation Programme.

The students then branch out into Industrial Design (ID), Communication Design (CD) and Animation Film Design (AFD) streams from the second year. The learning is interdisciplinary as many of the courses are offered to Industrial, Communication and Animation design students encouraging them to work across disciplines. In the fourth year they specialize in one of the following areas by choosing design projects from their area of interest. Fourth year also consists of internship, colloquium paper and a six-month diploma project.
