Beyond emphasising academic-industry collaboration, ICAD remains at the forefront of revolutionising the academic delivery for its students by prioritising a multidisciplinary collaborative approach in all their endeavors. By doing so, ICAD students are acclimated to the culture of collaboration and networking which emulates today’s art and design community, thereupon building a future generation of designers with an understanding of the full breadth of the arts.

Faculty members from ICAD are also provided professional development opportunities to enhance their knowledge, skills and industry experiences through INTI’s Faculty Industry Attachment (FIA) programme. The FIA programme offers faculty members the opportunity to perform a six weeks’ part-time placement at various collaborating companies and organisations in a bid to widen their perspectives and immerse themselves in current trends that influence today’s work environment. These experiences are crucial for academic development and sharing of these insights in the classroom.
