Event Name: “Workshop on Design Thinking, Critical Thinking & Innovation Design”

Mode of Conduction: Online (Google meet)

Date: 23rd February 2022 at 9.00 am

An online workshop was conducted for the faculty and 1st year students of various streams of engineering to educate them and highlight the importance of Design thinking, critical thinking and Innovation Design. Innovation with design thinking demands critical thinking because we must understand our assumptions that frame our ideas and shape our design.

As our world becomes more and more digital, it’s not the first click that counts – it’s what happens after that first click.By blending design thinking with critical thinking, we foster innovation that delivers customer-centric solutions.This mindset is crucial to the success of design thinking because its universal applications are a key driver for creating opportunities for both new and old solutions, no matter if they are internal- or customer-facing

Objectives of the Event:

  1. To highlight the concepts of Design Thinking, Critical Thinking & Innovation Design.
  2. To provide a social and thinking space for the recognition of innovation challenges and

the design of creative solutions.

  1. To provide an opportunity for students to understand the importance of designing innovative and desirable products, services or experiences that reflect all three aspects.
