• Objective of Design Lab is to create a culture of innovation throughout the State by fostering creativity and innovative imagination of students and researcher. This will also to provide opportunity and a platform to the person with the innovative mindset to work with tools and equipment to transform his/her idea into product.
  • Science, Technology and Innovation have been considered as the driver of progress in the 21st century. In order to provide an enabling environment and ecosystem for creative thoughts and ideas of young students, the Government of Gujarat has planned to establish the Design Labs, which are the conceptualized physical space in either of universities, colleges or research institutions across the State.
  • Design Lab is assigned by Gujarat Council on Science and Technology (GUJCOST), Govt. of Gujarat at Noble Group of Institutions (NGI) which provides a platform for the young students with creative and innovative ideas. Students and academic researcher with innovative ideas can get benefited with Design Lab, where they can easily transform their creative ideas into deliverable form, at least on a lab scale or pilot project basis. Design Labs in Science, Engineering, and Technology disciplines work as a generator of intellectual properties like patents and industrial designs.
Learning Outcomes
