"I’m pursuing my Pg Diploma in photography at NICC. (2017 - 2018). This one year has been amazing. I’ve learnt a lot, not only in photography but also design. I got placed at Canon India which was like a dream come true.
I’m thankful to NICC and Dr. Akash Rose for their continuous support and for this wonderful job opportunity."

My three years (2013-16)in NICC was perhaps the best learning period for me. There was so much to learn from, not only the classes but from the continuous projects that we had which prepared us for the industry.
And when it comes to placements, they make sure only the best jobs and packages are given to us. I started my career with a package 6 lakhs p.a.
Right now, as a Film maker and a Visualizer, I can confidently say, NICC set my career and one should totally consider NICC as one of your options.

"NICC might seem like a small college but that has only been is a huge advantage, since we get to know everyone more personally. With all the care, guidance and attention we received from the staff as well as our fellow students, NICC always felt like a second family to me rather than some educational institution. The atmosphere was inviting and honest, and will always be an experience that I'll carry with me throughout my life. I didn't expect much for my first job, especially since I was a fresher. To my surprise I received multiple offers and finally chose Divami Design Labs in Hyderabad. I'm so grateful to the college for giving me these opportunities and helping me make the right decisions to advance in my career."

"The placement cell at NICC is indeed very helpful and through their thorough diligence I received a fair number of offers, which has led to my current employment. It helps develop faith in one's abilities and to be keenly pursuant of one's professional goals, specially when faced with a lack of professional contacts in a new city."

"I met some very interesting people, both students and teachers, at NICC who have helped me explore multiple different disciplines in the fields of art and design and helped me grow into a competent, multidisciplinary professional."

Having a background of Interior design, the exceptional curriculum of PG Retail design at NICC added a new dimension to my carrier. It broadened my perspective and I was encouraged to always push the methods beyond convention. The institute was something like a laboratory to me where I could explore new ideas and methods across all the platforms they provide or combine them without any constraints or boundaries.
The lectures represented a great blend of academic and real world background. Lecturers give individual focused attention, so I was guided to shape and grow my ideas in the right direction. Every student is pushed hard, encouraged to contribute and expected to deliver at a high standard. The projects are challenged at every stage to make them unconventional but feasible which prepares you to create your own niche in the highly competitive world. Students are provided with a platform to present their works to reputed personalities from the industry and receive valuable feedback from them. The two years of PG at NICC was a valuable investment which marked a milestone in both my personal and professional life.

"When I was pursuing design thinking and design informally during my degree days, I always wondered if these fields would ever fetch me a career in it, because people around me knew so little about it. After joining this college, I can confidently say that I can pursue design as a career, as it has made me aware of how important a designer's role is, in the industry. NICC prepares every student to be 'Career-Ready' at the end of the course term, something that most colleges fail to do. The college, with it's well-experienced faculty, prepare us for what is currently happening in the industry, so that the students have an advantage over every one else in the field, by anticipating the game early and moving forward. Whether it's about learning Design Theory or Practicals, NICC excels in both, since it embraces the culture of 'cross-platforming', thus making it crucial for every student to learn different forms and aspects of design that are related to one another. NICC succeeds in challenging my perspectives and my abilities every semester, to help me deliver good design work. Thank you, NICC!"
