Programme in International
Culinary Arts

3 year full-time program (including 1 year internship)

Degree awarded by IGNOU

Vedatya’s Programme In International Culinary Arts (PICA) is unique because of its international partnership with the Culinary Arts Academy Switzerland (CAAS) through which students can get a Swiss culinary degree as an option.

The course provides applied orientation to students through culinary infrastructure that includes professional grade kitchens, on-campus farms, a herb garden, a fish pond and a dairy farm. Sustainable farming through these resources offers a unique opportunity for the students to practice “farm-to-fork” principles. International and domestic internships with multi-national brands, including Michelin star restaurants, are another resource for applied learning.
