Project Based Programs

Project Based Programs are collaborative programs for students, businesses and institutions. They are designed to help students apply their technical skills and practical knowledge outside the University environment by working on an industry project. The program also provides students with the opportunity to build their corporate networks in preparation to launch their global graduate careers.

In this program, host companies submit a short project based on their company’s corporate value proposition (strategic focus, problem resolutions etc.) which students work on for a set time period and then present the results back to the host company.
