He encouraged the students to come forward and get into touch with MSME regarding their innovative projects.
The purpose of SPEED is in alignment with the GD Goenka University’s instructional vision of project based learning. Such innovative projects also motivate the students to implement their learning in real-time situations. The aim of the program was to create and develop socially relevant projects which was beautifully achieved by the students as they created models such as, Solar Assisted Food Distribution Node, Rash Driving Monitor, Producing Biodegradable Plastics using Fruit Waste, Mathematical Modeling of Plague Disease, Optimization of Vertical Farming, Jatropha Industry, Smart Wheel Chair and many more.
SPEED not only provides students a platform to think out of the box and be innovative but also an opportunity to interact, and communicate with fellow scholars of different colleges and universities. It also enables students with skills like team building, project management, and life long learning.
