Animation and Multimedia Department

The Department of Animation & Multimedia started as a UGC Innovative Programme in the year 2005. BIT, Mesra, as a philanthropic Institute of Excellence in Higher Education in Science and Technology, made another proud beginning in the country by offering a novel B.Sc Degree in the domain of Animation and Multimedia Studies. This was a very timely, apt and astute response to a growing need in India as well as the global market for well educated, highly trained and skilfully groomed Animators who would join the industry not only as highly trained skilled artists, but as competent professionals backed by a tradition of high learning in a institute that is well entrenched in its sterling national as well as global reputation. The programme in A&M was offered in the Noida and the Jaipur campus of BIT, Mesra. Soon in 2009, the University began the Masters Programme in Animation to be followed by the Ph.D (Doctoral Research) programme in the domain.

The curriculum and pedagogy here is a unique blend of creativity and state-of-the-art technology that is identified with the industry. The Board of Studies that brainstormed the syllabus was manned by august educationists and industry experts from. IIT, Bombay, IIMC, New Delhi, Jamia Milia Islamia University, New Delhi, and so on. Along with this, the dedicated faculty with their well entrenched commitment and expertise in the domain; and latest & constantly updated infrastructure in terms of both the software and hardware has given this department the honour and privilege of being rated as the Best Animation School in the NCR  and a top rung rating in the country alongside IIT, Bombay, NID, Ahmedabad etc since 2010. by Hindustan Times.

The Department also boasts of a strong alumini strength as well as a grand placement record with many graduates being placed in organizations like the United Nations, Teri, HCL, OGM, Bee Hives, NIHFW, and many others. The Department is also very, very proud to announce many prominent Start ups by our old students like the Digital Jelebi, Triangle Films, Studio Ek Dum Fine, Buzz Mantra etc

Yet,the work is not over. With over 30 select students joining the department every year, the future is to be painted with rainbow colours by the brave hearts and young minds that we proudly call BITIANS.
