D J Academy is set amidst 21 acres of land in on eco-friendly location, 18 kilometres from city centre. From the academy one has a breath taking view of the Western Ghats. This view is DJAD’s rare distinction. The academy is housed in an architecturally beautiful building, well-equipped with all the facilities required to sharpen the brilliant minds.
Design learning at D J Academy of Design is a round the clock process. Studios and workshops are kept open from 7 am to 9 pm. The intensity of learning makes it necessary for the students to stay in the campus. Active participation is expected from each student in Film Club, Reading Club, Weekend Lectures and many cultural activities which take place regularly in the campus.
Students are encouraged to learn from the regular faculty and the visiting faculty through both formal and informal discussions, visits to interesting places and display of work.
Students are also encouraged to celebrate the cultural festivals and other events. Students should use their creativity and design their own things using the work space. D J Academy would support such activities.
Students are inspired to innovate, explore and come up with unique concepts. Many a time some promising concepts are taken for copyright registration and patenting.
Students are also encouraged to participate in competitions related to design, details of which will be displayed on the notice boards from time to time.
Learning in the academy occurs in both structured and non-structured ways. Any class project which is innovative is encouraged for design registration or patent application, as the case may be.
