At NSAPD, we constantly encourage students to explore, innovate and engage in cross- disciplinary thinking. This will pave the way to find sustainable solutions for the problems faced in urban India. We have the best infrastructural facilities in Karnataka and our building itself speaks for the design education we provide in the campus. We share the campus facilities with Nitte Meenakshi Institute of Technology. This ensures a collaborative space for the students to learn and work with peer groups from other branches of engineering and management.

We focus on multi-dimensional and holistic development of our students to enhance their threshold capacity. Students have various clubs to pursue their co-curricular interests. We facilitate opportunities to interact with experts from different fields through workshops, summer schools, study tours, webinars, conferences etc. In addition to the cultural events and fests, we also have a Technical Open Hub. We have also established IGBC Nitte SPAD Students’ Chapter in association with NMIT, Bangalore and IIA Nitte SAP Students’ Centre. These tie ups will go a long way in giving students opportunities and exposure.
