In this one year, you will get hands-on exposure to complete design thinking process- from idea to prototyping, and see theories blend with practice on the ground. You will be surprised every day by the challenges and opportunities you discover as you take each step closer to impact.

You will get the opportunity to work on a social problem of your preference. We recognize and hope that your initial thoughts about the problem will change completely, once you start working on the ground.
