AIGA can lay claim to being the “first dedicated institute for gaming and animation”. Since January, 2008, over 300 students have graduated from the various programs offered here. The centre houses people with industry expertise thereby imparting quality training specific to the industry needs.
AIGA’s pedagogy recognizes the value in creative thinking and the importance of hands-on experience. We put this into action with an approach that emphasizes problem-solving, learning by doing, and empowering our students to generate their own concepts and ideas.
Another major boost to AIGA’s pedigree is the Board of Studies, comprising of industry honchos, instructors and affiliated university delegates further emphasizing the importance of learning in professional environments, using relevant creative tools and software. As a result, the curriculums have been refined over the years, for a more industry oriented approach and maintains a fine blend between skill-based training and theoretical background so as to make sure that the student is industry-ready immediately upon graduating.
The balance of academia and professional practices has enabled AIGA’s alumni to successfully work in major game development and animation studios such as Technicolor, DreamWorks, Dhruva Interactive, Sumo Digital, MPC, Rockstar Games.
