Avantika is conceived and envisioned as India’s first Design Centered University and is spearheaded by eminent educationist, Dr. Sanjay Dhande – Former Director, IIT Kanpur. The spirit of creativity and innovation, complemented by design thinking and intellectual boldness is the central theme at Avantika. The unique academic model is based on an integrated trans-disciplinary approach that harmoniously amalgamates design with various disciplines on a solid foundation of liberal education.
The university offers design centric learning with the academic structure intended not just to support students’ professional growth, but also develop them as the next generation innovators and entrepreneurs. The freedom of thinking is non-negotiable in this university. The thought behind this endeavor – as perceived and visualized by MIT Pune – is to revive the status of Ujjain as a leading center of liberal learning, thereby preserving its history and contributing towards the welfare of the society.
Learners at Avantika would be the harbingers of change, challenging the status quo and look at problems more comprehensively. With a strong emphasis on design thinking and synthesis-oriented education, Avantika is poised to explore and catalyze an era of creativity, innovation, and enterprise.
We invite you to join us in our mission to develop students as innovators and contribute towards creating a positive change in society.
If you are an academician, an industry professional, an active consultant, an administrator, or pursuing research, and seek a vibrant environment for lifelong learning, we are looking just for you.
