Institute of Design and Spatial Arts celebrates first year of existence
A small expo was organized by IDSA on the occasion; it was visited by Acting Rector Dmitry Tayursky and other employees.
The Lobachevsky Museum kindly provided its premises for the exhibition. The rooms comprise general information about the Institute, day-to-day teaching activities, design studies, the Institute’s labs and clubs, and examples of motion design projects.
Just recently, KFU’s Academic Board decided to open Creative Technology Park as part of IDSA to assist in fostering an ecosystem of student entrepreneurship and import substitution.
Acting Rector Tayursky noted,
“Kazan University is a classical university which is also ever young. The opening of this institute was a step in the right direction because the University should be an organic part of urban environment and the community and should create a favorable environment for living, studying, and leisure.”
Director of the Institute of Design and Spatial Arts Karina Nabiullina thanked the leadership for its comprehensive support in creating the necessary conditions for the Institute’s development.
In 2021, IDSA enrolled students in four specializations: communicative design, motion design, environmental design, and interior design. The Institute comprises the Department of Construction and Design Projects, the Department of Design and Ethnic Arts, the Division of Project Design, the Center for Project Competencies, the Center for Industrial Design, the Laboratory of Architectural and Restoration School of Heritage Studies, the School of Interior Arts, the Laboratory of Animation, the Laboratory of Computational Design, the School of Arts, and the School of Landscape Design.
