Four students of JNTUK campus engineering college-two each from CSE and ECE third year, have been selected by the Stanford university's Hasso Plattner Institute of Design (D. School) as the University Innovation Fellows(UIF), JNTUK sources said here today. Under this programme, the Fellows (UIF) advocate for lasting institutional change and create opportunities for students to engage with innovation, entrepreneurship, design thinking and creativity at their school. They will design innovation spaces, start entrepreneurship organisations, host experiential learning events and work with faculty to develop new courses. So far 776 students were trained under this programme at 164 institutions since the programme was initiated. The Fellows are sponsored by the faculty and administrators and get selected through an application process twice annually. Colleges fund the students to go through six weeks of online training and travel to annual UIF Silicon valley Meet Up. The students thus take part in events and conferences and utilizes the opportunities to learn from the Stanford university mentors, leaders in academia and industry. The four students selected for UIF programme - Chaitanya and Prathiba Nikhita of CSE and Sowmy and Tejesweri of ECE are going to participate in the Silicon Valley meet Up shortly.
