The pilot started by incorporating select courses in three major colleges. SIET, MSRIT and BMS. The current curriculum was analyzed and with the college committee approval a few courses were added as core and a few as elective. The idea of the pilot was to move students from the traditional learning structure to a more experience based learning platform
