With the motto of 'gnanam vignanamsahitam', meaning 'knowledge with science and spirituality', today CEPT has grown into an autonomous university offering 3 under-graduate and 14 post-graduate programmes. School of Interior Design was founded by Ms. Krishna Shastri, a student of B.V. Doshi in 1991. At CEPT, efforts are made to instigate and improvise the sensitive and aesthetic dimensions of the students. Faculty and students together bring about a healthy and inspiring environment which results into volatile creativity . Students here, are exposed to a wide range of related studies starting from photography to music to crafts to religion to environment and culture, and are also encouraged to improvise and innovate in all the fields.
