MIT Pune Campus at Ujjain, Avantika University will introduce design thinking in a unique new learning pedagogy. Mentors will support students on different levels about how to approach problems differently and build innovative solutions. This is a learner-centered approach that will build an open environment for experimentation and creative thinking. Beginning 2017, the university will offer bachelor and master programs in Design, based on a project-based methodology and this will be followed by undergraduate programs in Engineering and Architecture. The recipe of the education is based on a fusion of design, technology, humanities and entrepreneurship disciplines. This approach should be seen in the light of that for instance the creative industries in the US contributed with a $1.2 trillion to the country’s economy in 2015 and accounted for 5.5 million jobs, according to the report “Copyright Industries in The US Economy” by economist Stephen Siweck. The sector is growing extremely fast all over the world. However, the skills developed at Avantika University’s new programs is demanded in most parts of todays and the future working life.
