The Department of Electronic Media is one closest to the media industry. Established in 2003, it aims at providing technical knowledge – theoretical and practical, of various disciplines of media. The focus is on providing students with an in-depth understanding of the audio and visual media, along with strong software backing. The course guides students through the nuances of conceptualization and scripting radio and television programmes, photography, production design, editing, CGI and the use of green matte.
A PEEK THROUGH THE LENS
The Department believes in creating media professionals with maximum hands-on experiences. Apart from the intense theoretical knowledge on the format, style and form of a programme (audio/video), the students also engage in numerous seminars, workshops, field visits and are encouraged to take up internships to understand the real deal of the industry. The students get a chance to implement their theoretical knowledge by creating shows for the community radio station MOP CRS 107.8FM, scripting, directing and editing short films and documentaries, and enhancing their productions through animation and CGI.
The course has kept itself abreast with the changing market environment and market demands. The department is managed by highly-qualified and experienced faculty with world-class infrastructural support to help create a dynamic educational network where professionalism is instilled. The syllabus is exhaustive and current. It has been designed to suffice industry expectations. Through this course, a student not only learns the process of production in great detail but is also made aware of the ethics and responsibilities of the industry.
