Program Brief

The ten-week Industry Connect Program will consist of a real design problem, students, mentors and industry experts.

The problem statements will be generated through industry contacts and will be validated by The Bridge School, with inputs from Vedatya. These problem statements will be converted to project briefs that will be executed through the ten-week period of the program.

The program introduces participants to design concepts such as design thinking, problem-solving, and product development. 

Delivered in a mixed format, the program combines offline sessions hosted at Vedatya Campus and Desmania Design offices with online sessions. Residential facilities are available for those who prefer to stay on campus during the program.
