Vineet Raj Kapoor (Indian IDT Expert Worldskills, and Founder Chandigarh Design School) shared “I am happy to get involved with the CSE department as the impact of the learning would directly reach the innovators in the digital app space. We covered the approach to Divergent Thinking and User Research for finding the pain points. And then techniques to converge the thinking towards defining the problem. Problems once identified can be solved easily.”
