Giving Shape to Your Imagination


The Media and Entertainment industry in India is not only rapidly growing but also undergoing major changes in terms of how it communicates with its audience. The BA (Animation and Multimedia) course at Vishwakarma University, Pune is unique as it focuses on creating a strong foundation in the art and technique of animation. Students receive instruction through a powerful integration of projects, classroom theoretical instruction, film screenings and analyses, workshops, and interaction with industry professionals. 

Preparing students to create solutions to complex problems in the field of Communication Design using animation as a creative medium is an integral part of the BA (Animation and Multimedia) Course. We ensure that students are encouraged and guided to streamline their ideas and improve their visual communication and storytelling skills.

Our award-winning animation and multimedia programme differs radically from most animation programmes in that we teach the full spectrum of production methods with block teaching, demonstrations and workshops by experts. From clay handling to gaining drawing mastery and the use of 2D and 3D techniques, students learn to use both cameras and CGI. They work individually or in a team to make films, documentaries and installations. The programme combines classical animation technique with innovative technologies that results in a distinctive advantage.

“Vishwakarma University has not only taught us software learning but we were also encouraged to be creative while we learn further through the subject through visualising the topics. The guidance at VU is always beneficial and easy to understand as well. VU has always provided us with great opportunities and given us huge platforms so that we could learn a lot and get an experience of the corporate world.

I am thankful to VU for always providing great opportunities and new experiences and skills."
