Resource Management & Design Application (RMDA)


The department was started in the year 1964 as the department of Community Resource Management and Extension. Since its inception it has been an amalgamation of two streams of Home-Science namely Resource Management and Extension. With the revision of masters curriculum in 2007, consequent to the revision of under graduate curriculum in 2004, the two respective streams of specializations were bifurcated and started as separate masters programmes. One of these streams was christened the Department of Resource Management and Design Application (RMDA).

This two year masters programme in RMDA is a composite course focusing on the management of various resources human, material and natural. It deals with the integration of these resources with design functions of interior and exterior spaces and product and event design.

The third and fourth semester have courses leading to the following specializations -

Training and Development

Maximun two specializations are offered in these semesters.
