What makes the program unique

The Philosophy & Culture

Learn from the Maker Community

Meet inspiring individuals from across the globe who will share what's happening in the world of Innovation with you! Leaders and experts from diversified backgrounds become part of your personal network as you navigate your ideas and solutions!

Project Based Documentation

The curriculum is design in consultation with professors, practitioners and experts working in the tech industry. While the skills are project based, we also emphasise a lot on the journey of how you went from ideation to actual problem solving and making via extensive documentation.

Collaboration over Competition

As problems in the world are becoming multidimensional and require a collaborative lens to solve, our program and culture reflects that ideology. We believe the next generation needs to be conscious about the power of collective intelligence.
