"ICAT, along with Birmingham City University, with its unique form of education has equipped me with the knowledge on systematic process of creative design, working with innovative concepts and dealing with what’s in hand at present. Studying at ICAT has been a fun roller-coaster ride, which I have enjoyed every bit to the core — the workshops, case studies, events, shoots, trips and everything. It was a place where I had the best Interior Design faculties, Mrs. Juhi Nagpal and Mr. Sameer Ali to guide me and wind off my fear of trying new things. They gave me a chance to express myself in the best way with their feedbacks. I would also like to mention all my friends and juniors, who were amazing and have stood beside me in this journey. Though the three years of my college life is over, I am somehow being invited by my juniors back to ICAT on festivals and events, or just when they need to discuss their projects, which is pretty awesome and something I have earned"

"ICAT College is very good and the faculties are very knowledgeable and friendly. I studied PG Game Art & Design, a course that is best suitable for all those who want a promising job immediately after college. During the course, the college helped me in everything. The Placement Department was really good. They help you get a job as quick as possible and in a good Company. So don’t hesitate to join this college. This is the Best one for Gaming."

"Learning at ICAT was a whole new and different experience. We were taught a number of things, starting from basic sketching and making artefacts to specialization in 2D, 3D art, Game Design etc. All the teaching at ICAT was in a systematic way and well managed for the time available.
At ICAT, we were informed about the competitions like NASSCOM, Game Jams, etc on a regular basis. Also, the faculties gave permission to work extra hours and were available for further assistance, which was really helpful. It made me understand the actual essence of the subject and I got specialized in 3D art, which I always dreamed about."
Ravi Chandra, PG - Game Design
"Creating concepts and making games are my passion; but they were just my dreams until I joined ICAT. Staff at ICAT helped me to pursue my dream. My journey to become a Game Designer started at ICAT, where I was guided in the right way to master my talents. Thanks to the college and staff for making my dream come true. Now, I am working as a Game Designer in a well-reputed company."

"Photography had been a hobby of mine for years before I took the course. I was self taught and found myself lacking with technical knowledge. Finding The Photography Institute among many others was a blessing. I have completed DEEE and pursued UG - Photography at ICAT. The course has given me the confidence and knowledge base to start producing professional-quality photographs. This has allowed me to continuously post articles and images of my expertise.
Overall, the course has given me the knowledge, drive and confidence I needed to succeed and 'thank you' is not just enough! Becoming a great Photographer will always call in for continuous learning; but having taken this course, I know I will succeed."
Sabareesh Nagaragan, Photography
"Taking photography as a degree was a dream come true. The course was designed in a way that learning is not limited. I gathered lots of knowledge through the projects. The assignments were really good as it helped me to think out-of-the box."
Sarvesh Prabakar, Photography
"The classes at ICAT exceeded beyond my expectations, in particular because it explored not just picture taking, but also the art, design and ethics behind photography. The photography classes had a really broad approach to creativity and research, which made me an Entrepreneur. It has also given me the confidence to start my own business in the commercial industry."

"Studying at ICAT Design and Media College has been a phenomenal and informative experience for me. It gave me the platform to turn my passion, something that I love and enjoy doing so much, into a career.
Interior Designing is quiet challenging and competitive; also an Interior Designer has to be very well updated and have knowledge with day-to-day changes taking place in the field. ICAT prepares one to take up all the challenges and updates with trending technologies in field.
ICAT provides a comprehensive Interior Design course. For me, Interior Designing is more about practical knowledge and ICAT definitely aims for that. It is affiliated to Birmingham City University which is one of the main highlight of this program. The course is well structured and consists of different modules with an assignment at the end of each module. All the modules are presented with several design challenges and opportunities that made us think out of the box. During the course of study, I began to look at things differently, to study things with an educated eye.
With constructive criticism, guidance and support from my faculty, I gained finesse and confidence. The faculty visits from BCU University helped us gain more exposure and their feedbacks helped immensely.
Knowledge breeds confidence. Both as important as the 'nuts and bolts' of the trade are to imagine, design, create and ultimately deliver the space your clients hoped for. ICAT guides, supports and provides those tools to those wanting to expand their horizons."
Arwa Kitabi, Interior Design
"After my 12th, I was determined to join for Interior Design. But was a bit confused as where to pursue from ? Choosing ICAT Design and Media was one of the best decisions I made in my life – a great place to grow as a Designer, giving an artistic approach to my passion. The college molded us for great heights of achievements in the industry, with enough exposure and activities. The friendly atmosphere, creative workshops, assignments, case studies had always helped me to gain much."
Nidhi Ravi, Interior Design
"I joined ICAT with an aim to become a Game Developer. When I met many like-minded people and understood about the opportunities for Indie Game Developers, I and my friend decided to start our own company. Thus was born the 'Ogre Head Studio'. We are currently working on our first game (Asura) while we also work on client projects parallel to fund ourselves.
We have showcased our game at various events like EGX (UK), Indie Showcase (US & Singapore), Dubai Game Festival, NGDC, Indie Game shindig, Video Game Fest, etc. We have also won the ‘Upcoming Game of the Year’ award at NGDC 2014."
