One of my friends studied at IIT Guwahati. According to him, choosing IIT Guwahati over IIT Bombay will be a better option.

  • The demand for designers is increasing day by day. Companies today have a requirement for a great interface. Designers have a high scope in their future.
  • Most of the students graduating from IIT Guwahati are inclined to a career in the field of Interaction Design.
  • Companies like Microsoft, Uber, Flipkart, Sprinklr, Ola, etc. hire B.Des graduates for roles of UI or UX designers.
Categories B.Des from IIT Bombay B.Des from IIT Guwahati
Course Fee 8.33 lakh 8.63 lakh

Highest CTC 27.9 LPA 35 LPA

Finally, it depends on the marketing of their design, and why it stands out among similar designs. A designer needs to be creative and well updated with the ongoing trends and interests of the industry.
