"Animation is such a wonderful blend of technical knowledge and bombastic creativity. It is a joy to keep this department going."
- Mr. B. Bhaskara Rao
| Who we are and what we do
Set up in the year 2008, the Department of Animation Design has since become one of the most popular in the Academy owing to the rarity of the under graduate Animation course and the comprehensive way we tackle it. Our aim is to train students in every technological advancement in the field of animation so that they can put their creativity to lucrative use.
Some key statistics for the Department of Animation Design:
we offer 1 UG course of 3 years in B.Sc Multimedia and Animation
Admissions to our B. Sc Multimedia and Animation course happens through the common Loyola admissions route.
| 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:
We invite industry experts in animation, photography, art design, graphic imagery, etc. to talk to our students on a regular basis.
Practical workshops on trending techniques such as stop-motion, clay animation, clay modeling, etc are conducted by those at the top of their game.
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.
