The Jain College of Engineering is delighted to embrace IIC. The government of India’s Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) formed the “MHRD’s Innovation Cell (MIC)” to systematically promote the innovation culture across all higher education institutions. The main goal of MIC is to excite, motivate, and nurture young learners by assisting them as they develop new ideas into prototypes throughout their formative years.
In a few selected HEIs, MIC wants to promote the formation of “Institution’s Innovation Councils” (IICs). These IICs will be connected to create a campus-wide innovation promotion eco-system by promoting innovation within the institution through a variety of channels.
