School of Innovation and Technology

Innovation is one of the key drivers for value creation. Many Multi-National Companies, Academic Institutions, and Government agencies have understood that the engine for future economic growth would come from innovation. As a result, they have already made huge investments in research to find a next breakthrough technology in information technology, nanotechnology, robotics, and many other areas. This indicates that the pace of technological progress will continue to increase in the future. Clearly, new technologies provide greater capabilities, but are more complex and difficult to learn. At the same time, the users are placing greater demand on technology producers to make them more usable and economical.

The School of Innovation and Technology is uniquely positioned to provide world-class education to students who want to become leaders and decision makers.

  • Students would be introduced to the fundamentals of key technologies, how they are interlinked, and their impact on the society from the standpoint of businesses, consumers, government, and other institutions.
  • Team learning would be focused on interdisciplinary approaches. In addition to teaching, the members of the faculty will mentor and advise students in their career planning.
  • Experiential learning has been integrated into the Programme. Students will learn not only case studies, but also through field-based interaction and experience.
  • ARGUCOM already has a strong network of companies, government agencies, and other leading academic institutions. By leveraging this network and other resources, our students should be able to jump-start a career in innovation and technology management.
