THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Kerala Academy for Skills Excellence (KASE) has opened the admission process for its new design institute, the Kerala State Institute of Design (KSID), with the release of its prospectus on Wednesday.

Principal Secretary (Labour) Tom Jose, Employment and Training director A Shainamol and KASE Managing Director Rahul R were also present at the function.

The institute located in Chandanathope, Kollam, aims to create highly skilled design professionals and also produce a ‘made in Kerala’ brand, with part of the syllabus planned with particular attention to using the state’s natural resources, particularly in the handicrafts and handloom sectors.

After the release, Shibu Baby John said that the government aimed at converting the institute into one of the best institutes in the country. He also said that the institute had received faculty and curriculum support from the prestigious NIDs.
