CEGR or Centre of Education Growth and Research is the leading and only educational think tank in India, credited with four innovations. With over 10,000 aligned academicians, corporates & researchers, the CEGR National Council includes Chairman-National Board of Accreditation; Regulators from AICTE; 50 Vice Chancellors from various regions of India and leading industrialists. The organization has been operating for over 10 years and has been a stalwart in recognizing educational excellence in India.
CEGR has bequeathed DOT School of Design with the prestigious award of “Best Private Design College in Tamil Nadu for Academic Excellence 2021” along with the felicitation of our Chairperson, Mr. AR.R Raammnath with “Exemplary Academic Leader of the Year 2021” award. With a strong root of experienced Advisors, Board of Directors, and Academic Heads, DOT School of Design promises to uphold & expand the standard it has set for itself in such a short period in the Design education sector.
The increasing importance of Design in multidisciplinary institutions has introduced a dire need for meritorious design education in India. But the lack of awareness of the prominence of the field, especially in Southern India has left a significant vacancy in the job market. Also, due to the lack of accessible and quality design education in Southern India, the gap between academia and the fierce requirements of the industry widened. The Chairperson along with a committee of aligned working professionals established DOT School of Design, which is Chennai’s first exclusive design college offering B.Des, M.Des, PG & UG Diploma programs in the disciplines of Industrial Design, Communication Design, Spatial Design, Textile Design, Fashion Design & Fine Arts.
Despite being new, DOT’s contribution to the proliferation of design awareness in Southern India along with its other initiatives such as INCO, the institute’s Industrial Connect Program exposes the students to the industry requirements at the earliest onset of campus life. This wouldn’t be possible without our Chairperson’s strong faith in the pedagogy that is the founding principles of DOT. He is a strong advocate of expeditionary teaching techniques and has developed a creative environment at DOT which enables the students to learn outside of classrooms with hands-on practical experience. An ardent educator and a strong leader, Mr. Raammnath has held the position of Manager, Leader and Executive in renowned Architectural Firms. He has also been trained under Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH), Pondicherry, on several renovation and revitalization projects.
