About Project

Design Engineering is 1st kind of GTU’s Initiation in Educational Pedagogy. It will enhance intensity, creativity, intellectual power among students. Due to short time, GTU (we) can not able to reach each faculty-student community to make them aware of design thinking process which is very easy yet effective. As a part of GTU team (AP), we are preparing virtual material for Design Engineering faculty-student community, so they can learn subject anytime any where by own. The idea is “An Open Source tool available for self - learning A Design Thinking Process through Video in form of DVD”. In last two months, 590 faculties have been trained through 8 FDP from 100+ colleges and 15 branches. At present GTU team is trying to Prepare material related to project. By end of February 2015 team will be ready with DVD and downloadable material through social media. It will enhance students thinking process though innovation, creativity and bring betterness in community.
