With an initiative to provide first-hand design engineering experience to students of class 12/ 2nd PUC, Uni-GAUGE organized an event in Bangalore called ‘Designathon’.
The event had the participation of students from several reputed institutions across the city including Mount Carmel College, MES Main College, MES Kishora Kendra, REVA PU College etc. As part of the design thinking session, students were taken through the journey of product evolution; industry experts cited significant case studies to draw parallels with the industry standards and expectation from the young engineering minds. Students were challenged to design product prototypes with primary raw materials in a limited time frame, and the outcome was outstanding. The creative thoughts of the young minds translated into innovative product designs.
The panel of judges included experts from the industry who expressed great delight being part of the event. One of the panellists Mr Srinivas Kumar K.S, Managing Director, Wizardry Designs Pvt. Ltd said “It’s immensely satisfying to witness design thinking growing in the country right after schooling. The innovative NxGEN prototypes designed by the budding engineers present an upbeat scenario of a brighter engineering future in India”.
