You will embark on an exciting first year where you will unlearn certain old habits (e.g. rote learning), learn new skills and mindsets (e.g. interdisciplinary thinking, maker mindset, teamwork), and rekindle your innate qualities (e.g. curiosity, asking ‘why’, creativity). You will also develop foundational technical, social and humanistic understanding that will be core to every Plakshan.
In the second year, you will continue your process of discovery and play an increasingly active role in charting your journey. You will opt for a major of your choice, and be guided by a faculty advisor in this important decision. Later in the year, you will start to go deeper in your major, and also pick a real-world problem area of your interest.
In the third year, you will focus on developing deep expertise in an area, which not only involves building deep knowledge, but also developing the right skill sets to build impactful solutions. You will find yourself connecting the dots through an eclectic mix of classes at the intersection of technology, sciences and liberal arts.
This year will be an opportunity to combine your knowledge, passion and skills to go deeper in tackling an inspiring problem area. Working in interdisciplinary teams on a real-world problem at a company, research institution, non-profit or your own start-up, you will also be free to adventure through advanced electives in areas related or unrelated to your major.
