EDI is set in a rural and amidst verdant surroundings; the aesthetically designed campus with a simple yet elegant structure is a judicious blend of the major influences on architecture-Hindu, Islamic and European. The buildings are developed around inner courtyards and loggias which are a major source of light and ventilation. It is interspersed with sprawling lawns, thick leafy trees and flora that match the quiet dignity of the solid facade that generates very specific elements and expression.

Sports & Recreation-
The institute offers its students a wide range of intellectual and interactive sports and cultural activities which enhances and completes the student’s academic experience. Most of the cultural and sports activity are ‘students initiative’, i.e. they are designed and formulated by our students. It not only makes them creatively participate in these events, but also helps them learn the art of event organization and management.
EDI not only believes in growth on the educational front but promotes overall growth as well. With the latest technology available at the campus, it becomes more convenient for the students to do their research & pursue higher knowledge in the field. Apart from just bookish knowledge, our expert & well- educated faculty members also train them practically.
