Dimension Data has designed and deployed the university’s new infrastructure, and will also manage its IT assets and landscape, underpinned by advanced cybersecurity technologies.
Avantika is promoted by the MIT Group of Institutions, Pune with a vision to create a unique design ecosystem in central India. The spirit of creativity and innovation, complemented by design thinking and intellectual boldness is the central theme at Avantika. The university has chosen both physical and digital infrastructure to support this.
Avantika is conceived to be a distinctive learning centre of India, that provides a comprehensive platform to develop the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs.
