TechDev Program

What is TechDev?

The Technology Development Programme is a structured hands-on prototype development programme.  It is aimed at passionate student volunteers to solve problems faced by people through assistive technology solutions that are user-centric and cost effective.

The programme is designed based on the 5 stage Design Thinking Framework:

Empathize, Define, Ideate, Prototype, Test.

This entails a long term partnership with the VWOs which will cover all stages of the framework. The end goal is to provide an engineering solution to an existing problem faced by the beneficiaries.
