This project is an initiative to make today’s generation self-dependent with respect to technology.

This is a 3-month long project which focuses on educating as well as giving practical experience in different fields of technology. The main goal is to provide effective communication between the mentors and the mentees.
We also have industry experts to guide the student and help them choose their career according to their field of interest.

A 3-month extensive program stretching across four domains which will not only help participants learn new things but also connect them across to highly qualified, experienced industry professionals.

A 1.5 month total learning process followed by a 1.5-month tenure of a capstone project, with personally allotted mentors who will guide them on a regular basis. A highly competitive, informative and interactive learning experience, it is aimed to make sure the participants learn and then apply those learnings to projects to build amazing things!

The program will be launched from June 1st

and will be kickstarted by an orientation, that will be held in the form of a panel discussion, in which members of the Advisory Board will be participating.
They will be explaining to the mentees how the program will proceed, and also let them know about the various opportunities such as internships, networking with industry professionals and so on that await them if they can persevere through the three months and build a complete project. The IPR experts in the advisory board will also ensure that if the participants build a deserving project, then they can get it trademarked for free only Govt Fee would be charged.
All of this information shall be put forward at the very beginning to motivate the mentees to see the program through till its very end.

The portal will also have a leaderboard, with stars allotted for each task completed. The mentees with most stars by the end of the learning phase can be provided with certain incentives to keep them motivated.
Milestones will be set for each domain periodically, and mentors will judge the progress of the mentees based on their task submissions. Once the project phase begins, mentors will also be doing milestone checks in order to ensure that the projects are on track for completion
Expert talks will be held every week by professionals from the industry. These will cover a variety of topics ranging from technology to Intellectual Property Rights, to motivational talks. We also realise the importance of career counselling in today’s world and will be organizing frequent sessions on career guidance by experienced professionals.
