Reflecting the universal visuals, designs, and arts in its virtual realm, by its sheer design, the mind is as deep, dense, and at the same time as everything eternal and infinite as the cosmos itself. Moreover, just like the universe, the mind evolves and expands continuously with the help of our plastic brain and elastic thinking flowing on the force of imagination, exploring the novel vistas of unbounded curiosity.

This is uninterruptedly creative design thinking. In the concurrent eras of pragmatism, the universal force of mind’s innovative design thinking must be chiselled by guiding lights to make it shine like diamonds on life’s horizon.

Quoting the President of P.A. Inamdar College of Visual Effects, Design & Arts (PAI VEDA), its DeanDr Rishi Aacharya, says, “It gives us the greatest pleasure to welcome you all to the College of Visual Effects, Design & Art (VEDA). Again, I’m quoting our beloved P.A. Inamdar, sir, “As you may be aware, the economic scenario worldwide is changing rapidly. What was modern yesterday is currently obsolete. Our industry needs a trained workforce who can innovate on their feet rather than merely following the crowd.

At VEDA College, we aim to produce this kind of talent, which is also a thorough professional besides being young and dynamic. Our students are trained and nurtured in an atmosphere that is creative, harmonizing and challenging to tackle the intense competition at home and abroad. My firm belief comes from our experience that once our students set about achieving their goals, they are next to none in achieving the success they aim for.”

Fostering a Knowledge Community

Being a Dean, I, too, believe in our aspirations of positively impacting the lives of students, teachers and the education industry by creating a conducive environment that fosters learning, growth and innovation. Similarly, a wonderful culture of art, animation, creativity and the teaching-learning process will be unfolded to you.”
