We have been offering university wide programmes on subjects like critical thinking, design thinking, negotiations and communications that are open to students from all schools. These complement the Foundation Programme to build mindsets that facilitate innovation, promote startups, and build an ability to think independently, widely, and deeply.
Fellowship Programme at Venture Studio

It has been designed to train students to find solutions for real life situations. This includes application of principles of design, engineering, finance, business management and collaboration through a unique methodology that would equip them with the ability to create sustainable ventures.
