TECHNOPRENEURSHIP COMPETITION 2018 PROGRAMME
What’s the process like?
Students will attend workshops to acquire knowledge, meet often with industry mentors to enhance their thinking, work with their peers to develop teamwork and leadership skills, and closely connect with the problem statement representatives to gain real-life experience in working with industry.
The year-long program is split up into 2 phases/semesters. Phase 1 will focus on problem solving and design, while Phase 2 will focus on (hardware) prototyping of the proposed solutions and pitching to industry. Leadership and team development will happen throughout Phase 1 and 2.
