Idea innovation Lab is an experiential, collaborative learning environment that prepares students for the rigours of their professional programs and, ultimately, for the workforce, where they’ll be equipped to make positive contributions.
The idea innovation lab supports digital tools, latest technologies, powerful Mac Systems and team-based activities that enable students to explore authentic problems relevant to society. Innovative teaching and learning technologies are at the core of this lab to ensure that students from all streams have every opportunity to succeed.
The lab takes students through each stage of the design cycle. Similar to professionals, students identify design criteria for a particular problem, come up with potential alternatives, plan for a chosen solution, build and test a prototype, evaluate their work, and refine their solution.
Students are inspired to be creative, innovative, think “outside the box”, and explore new concepts. Creative processes like brainstorming and design thinking can drive ideation and the development of innovations.. They transform their ideas into working prototypes. Teams of students demonstrate their projects to their peers and guides.
Soft skills are a collection of productive personality traits that portray a person’s relationships in a social environment. They include the manner in which we interact with others, tackle problems, and manage our work.
Soft skills are a combination of people skills, communication abilities, attitudes, social intelligence, and emotional intelligence quotients.
A state-of the art Mac lab that delivers knowledge on the domain, required to convert the prototype into a practical solution. The prototypes developed at Idea Innovation Lab may be implemented as mobile apps or product plans. Apple certified trainers guide the students to develop mobile apps with cutting-edge technologies like Machine Learning, Augmented Reality and Internet Of Things.
Tech talks are organised as a part of the lab, where experienced software developers and IT professionals, share their knowledge, tips and tricks gained over many years within the industry.
The combined effect of gaining innovative thinking skills through the Idea Innovation lab, ‘in-demand’ technical skills through domain lab, improved communication skills through soft skills lab and relevant project experience at Career Connect lab will ensure that the student stands out when meeting employers.
Students are guided by experienced developers. They receive hands-on training, one-to-one mentoring and practical advice throughout a real-world commercial project. This provides a unique opportunity to gain first-hand project experience throughout the SDLC (Software Development Lifecycle), including client meetings, analysing business requirements, specifying and designing solutions, coding, testing and support.
The lab provides real-world insights into working in the IT industry. Students will experience what it’s really like to work in the industry. They will learn key industry terms and communication techniques while building valuable personal industry connections.
At the Idea innovation lab, students would have already gained knowledge about innovative thinking.Strategic thinking skills which deal with learning to decompose a problem to its core and reveal opportunities for growth. figuring out creative solutions and identifying the low-hanging fruits are imparted at this phase. Networking Skills, Finance Management, Branding your product, digital marketing skills are also imparted in the process of the student progressing towards becoming an entrepreneur.
Startup begins with an idea in mind and a passion to implement it. The journey towards success may be interspersed with barriers, difficulties, and failures. The funding for the startup may be from friends/ family, a bank loan. A successful startup receives funding from angel Investors / Venture capitalists or Government funding.
A group of students may plan to launch a startup, with the idea developed at Idea Innovation lab. We help students create a business model with the idea and connect them to Venture capitalists or apply to Government funding.
A venture capitalist (VC) is a private equity investor that provides funding to companies demonstrating high growth potential in exchange for an equity stake. Venture capitalist buys a stake in an entrepreneur’s / startup’s idea, provide financial support until it stabilises.
We help students connect with Venture Capitalists and skill them up to present their business models effectively.
