Innovation and Research Project (IRP)
Innovation and Research Project (IRP) is a cutting edge design thinking programme inspired by Stanford University’s d. school and the award-winning design firm IDEO. Design Thinking seeks to solve problems by understanding users' needs and developing insights to meet those needs. In IRP, our students use the Design Thinking process to unlock their inner creativity. This approach is not only empathy-driven and end-user centric, but also encourages our students to take an interdisciplinary approach to address the most complex problems. By the end of this programme which is conducted in IP3, students would have understood the basics of design thinking and engage in actual innovation that meet user’s needs, wants and desires.
