Emphasis on Creativity and Innovation
An old Chinese proverb states “I listen, I forget. I see, I remember. I do, I understand.” Along the same lines, the University curriculum gives importance to ‘learning by doing’ through hands-on, activity-based exercises. Creativity, Design Thinking and innovation modules are an integral part of the majority of academic programmes offered at CMRU. Faculty members are also trained in Design Thinking, and they apply these tools in planning classroom sessions and student activities.
Focus on Collaborative Learning
We believe that the process of sharing ideas, knowledge and experience is the key. Collaborative learning allows students to engage in positive ways that lead to the development of their organizational skills, their ability to teamwork, and the art of giving and receiving feedback.
At CMRU, a unique component of student assessment criteria is the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE). The CCE measures students’ abilities through their contribution to various activities, team projects and case studies. These modules are structured in ways that make peer learning an integral part of every course. Each student is an active participant in the learning process and the role of a professor is that of a facilitator. Instruction is designed to engage students in learning experiences that enable them to not only learn concepts but also to develop greater insights towards practical application.
Diverse Student Body
The student body at CMR University is culturally diverse and unique. Our students hail from across India and nearly 60 countries worldwide. With such a wide-ranging representation of culture, people and places, the University campus is an ethnically diverse microcosm in the city of Bengaluru. In this environment, it is easy for students to develop an appreciation and respect for cultural differences, and become aware of the unconscious assumptions and behaviours that influence interactions.
The CMRU Makerspace is a place to share their knowledge and work with people from diverse backgrounds and experiences to make things that test their ideas, find answers, solve problems and discover new methods of doing something.
The Makerspace hosts multiple events like workshops, screenings and talks, introducing students to interesting new ideas and skills in a short duration of time in a hands-on manner. It offers certification and training in the latest prototyping equipment including laser cutters, 3D printers and CNC router machines. The Makerspace also hosts national and international level competitions, design-build challenges and hackathons that expose our students to the global maker movement. Being an interdisciplinary space of learning, the Makerspace allows students to work on real world projects with students and faculty from different departments. It is also actively tied with industry and the startup ecosystem providing students regular interaction with experts. Projects built at the Makerspace highlight our students’ academic and non-academic capabilities, teamwork, leadership abilities, ingenuity and hard work.
CMR believes that the best learning happens hands-on, which is why we integrate Design Thinking Philosophy in our curriculum in order to enable and empower our students to tackle industry demands. In our Design Thinking Lab, students participate in hands-on workshops where they use creative techniques to tackle critical real-world challenges. D-Lab classes prepare students with a vast range of professional competencies of the future developing leadership, critical thinking, collaboration, and adaptability.
