Program Design:

Product Innovation Lab is designed to be executed in Series mode. The first Series named as Series 1 has five teams working. The optimum size of a Series is estimated as 10 teams. Each team consists of one student each from ECE, EEE, CSE, Mech, MBA along with one faculty guide. The plan is to enroll teams from colleges all over the region. The five week work schedule is planned with interactive sessions and reviews with/by SRiX team and product building/making activities.
