A course on ‘Social Innovation’ has been conceptualized and offered to the students of first year undergraduate engineering. The objectives of the course are as follows:
- To build students’ capacity to use problem solving skills to address social issues through innovative solutions.
- To transform students’ perspective on the world around them by enabling them to identify areas ripe for innovation. Last year, over 250 projects in social space are done by First year undergraduate engineering students, which help them to connect with societal issues.
