Mind to Market Centre (MMC)

Providing Cross- functional clarity and building multidisciplinary capabilities in its students become a foremost differentiator for NITIE. This can be achieved by creating a seamless facility that integrates the various facets of product and process development. Such an infrastructure would validate the multitude of dimensions and perspective of preliminary concept and convert into a successful process and product. A Centre would stimulate the student creativity and help translate their ideas into implementable action- product, process or business model development.

Mind to Market Centre (MMC) host a multitude of facilities accessible for NITIE’s students to work on their thoughts and create successful prototypes.

Centre Objectives:

The objective of MMC is to provide a seamless and integrated centre that would enable the NITIE students to visualise and transfer and transfer their ideas and prototypes into successful solution designed to improve the productivity and efficiency of the industry. The MMC will include the following facilities:

·         Concept generation analysis and selection

·         Economics feasibility studies

·         Psychological analysis of alignment between product characteristics and Market needs

·         Innovation and New Product Development especially in the intersection of technology, operation and leadership.

·         Design for Manufacturing Excellence – prototype design that incorporate ergonomics, human psychological needs, new material and processes and evaluation.
