Innovation Design Engineering: With a lot of stress being given on providing solutions to existing problems of today, it is important that engineers of tomorrow know what it takes to observe, visualize and create solutions to problems. This workshop enables them to assess situations and filter their ideas to an extent where they can create fine solution designs that can be even patented.

‘Idea to Market’ in Android: Android is the fastest growing mobile platform in the world, demand for Android developers is increasing at an yearly rate of 350%. This is a one-day workshop designed to quickly get up to speed in writing mobile apps for Android devices.

As such, the methodology of the test is governed by the chosen software development methodology.

Dimensional Engg and GD&T: Dimensional Engineering is an important activity in the product development process. It is an engineering process that is combined with a set of tools that make it possible to understand and design for variation. Its purpose is to improve first-time quality, performance, service life and associated costs. Its aim is to secure that the geometric requirements are met. A big part of dimensional engineering is understanding the origins of the variations and how the manufacturing process, the assembly process and the product concept combine and affect the final product.

Introduction to Python: Python is an easy to learn, powerful programming language. It has efficient high-level data structures and a simple but effective approach to object-oriented programming. Python’s elegant syntax and dynamic typing, together with its interpreted nature, make it an ideal language for scripting and rapid application development in many areas on most platforms.
