The Spirit of Avantika

Design-Centric Learning at Avantika starts with engaging the learners to confront challenges. The learners will solve these challenges through analysis, reflection, ideation, synthesis, prototyping, and testing the impact. As the academic program progresses, these challenges change in terms of their scale, complexity, and ambiguity involved. Learners invest energy, time, and effort into these tasks. This approach leads them to ask questions and seek answers through reflection, collaboration, and interaction. The faculty members act as facilitators and collaborators in this endeavor. Learning at Avantika is just in time and not just in case.

the identity

The Lotus symbolizes potential and in its fully blossomed form represents enlightenment and awareness. The flower is deeply rooted in Indian culture, particularly associated with Saraswati - the Goddess of Wisdom.

The transdisciplinary approach is represented through the confluence of sections, implying an immersive learning experience. The transition of colors represents evolution of an individual at Avantika University.
