Highlights | What makes us different

Multimedia and Animation is a burgeoning field that is constantly coming up with new and exciting ways to portray visuals. In order to keep up, we ensure that our students gain as much of their expertise from outside the classroom as within. Here are a few things we do differently:

  • 01 Guest Lectures

    We invite industry experts in animation, photography, art design, graphic imagery, etc. to talk to our students on a regular basis.

  • 02 Workshops

    Practical workshops on trending techniques such as stop-motion, clay animation, clay modeling, etc are conducted by those at the top of their game.

  • 03 Industrial Tours

    Industrial visits to post-production houses and animation companies teach students about the professional scenario in their line.

Our students love their advanced computers with high speed internet and top notch animation software, and are often loath to get out of their comfortable AC lecture halls. Drop by for a visit.
