Introduction of the course:
The 3 yrs. B.Sc in Jewellery Design is affiliated to CCS(Chaudhary Charan Singh) University. This course in Jewellery Design is a comprehensive course aimed at training students aspiring to be jewellery professional in three major areas- Design, Technology and Business.
Year One introduces the student to basic workshop skills and techniques that are required for technical competence and material expression. It would highlight the relevance of a piece of jewellery to the body and it’s movements.
Year two will cover specific technical inputs in Gem stones identification, Jewellery making Techniques and Manufacturing process.
Year Three provides the basis to enter the industry of precious/semi-precious/costume jewellery through Industry Interface that is in-built, within the course. Internships and placements are provided at the end of the course.
Methods of Learning:
Teaching and Learning takes place by understanding the subject knowledge through theory and its practical applications, live industry projects, market visits and surveys and Master Classes for specific programs.
Year One covers the introductory modules to build skills and conceptual understanding of jewellery design, like drawing, 3D sketching, rendering and illustration using different colour medium and material exploration to shape simple forms. Alongside student will gain knowledge of essential components that make up the jewellery, History of Jewellery, Art and Design and Gemology. At the end of the year, the Design Process which will enable students to design from a brief will culminate as a project along with CAD soft-wares like Photoshop & Corel Draw.
Year Two emphasizes on technical learning and application of design and sampling with jewellery material. They will learn Orthographic Views, Weight Approximation and Cost Estimation for precious jewellery. The project in year 2 will be individual, self initiated, consumer focused design brief to enable better understanding of how the market works. Jewellery manufacturing processes will be explored through industry visits and students will start to design on jewellery designing software such as Matrix.
The final year is industry oriented, where semester and graduation projects, industry exposure through internship and industry interface takes place. The students will also understand mass production and the processes used for the same. The Graduation Project will be a project
- Specific knowledge and hands on design, techniques and material application of jewellery
- Emphasis on technical and design skills
- Design Projects that are client based
- Gemology and Diamond Grading
- Costing and weight estimation of precious jewellery
- Jewellery CAD CAM knowledge & practice
- Experienced Faculty
- In-house Workshop and Gemology Lab
Students can find opportunities as Precious Jewellery Designer, Merchandisers and Stylist. Students with interest in technical areas can work as Diamond Graders and Gemologists.
