ABOUT INDIA DESIGN WEEK 2017
Ecosystems are essential to the survival of human societies and economies. There are substantial risks that ecological degradation will diminish the future well-being of humanity. Regime shifts in ecosystems cause rapid, substantial changes in ecosystem services and human well-being. The human population is becoming connected & crowded, consuming & polluting, and in many ways less diverse than any time in history. The question now arises, whether it is possible to satisfy the needs of the population that is growing exponentially while preserving the carrying capacity of our ecosystems, biological and cultural diversity. The generations of the future will never know the ecosystems we had the privilege of growing up with, unless we address these problems with positive solutions.
ICT Academy, in association with Autodesk, presents India Design Week 2017, a largest better-than-ever design event for young "creators of tomorrow" looking to unleash the Power of Design and contribute towards the furtherance of ecosystem. This inaugural edition will have the theme "Design for Ecosystems" with an objective to build designs for a better ecosystem.
The event will be conducted in 3 locations across Tamil Nadu & Puducherry, in a "24 Hour Design Challenge" format where budding designers will learn, explore, image, innovate and design for a better living. This event provides an opportunity for budding designers to express their design views on the future of living through their innovative and visionary design thinking. The event aims to foster budding talent in design and expose them to all aspects of product design process.
About ICT Academy
TO BRIDGE THE INDUSTRY-ACADEMIA SKILL GAP, AND TO DEVELOP THE NEXT GENERATION TEACHERS & STUDENTS, THE GOVERNMENT OF INDIA STARTED ICT ACADEMY IN 2009 UNDER THE PPP MODEL.
ICT Academy, headquartered in Chennai, India is an initiative of the Government of India in collaboration with the state Governments and Industries. ICT Academy is a not-for-profit autonomous organization, the first of its kind pioneer venture under the Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) model that endeavors developing the next generation talent pool. ICT Academy in partnership with Autodesk has been developing teachers and students on Design thinking in the areas of Manufacturing, Automobile, Construction and architecture.
Autodesk, Inc. is a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software. Customers across manufacturing, architecture, building, construction, and media and entertainment industries-including the last 17 Academy Award winners for Best Visual Effects-use Autodesk software to design, visualize, and simulate their ideas before they're ever built or created. From blockbuster visual effects and buildings that create their own energy to electric cars and the batteries that power them, the work of our 3D software customers is everywhere you look. Through our apps for iPhone, iPad, iPod, and Android, we're also making design technology accessible to professional designers as well as amateur designers, homeowners, students, and casual creators. Whether it's a kid looking to build a new contraption, a seasoned pro sketching out a great new idea, or someone who just wants to amp up their creative output, we're taking technology originally built for movie studios, automakers, and architectural firms, and making it available to anyone who wants to create and share ideas with the world. Since the introduction of AutoCAD software in 1982, Autodesk continues to develop the broadest portfolio of state-of-the-art 3D software for global markets.

THEME - DESIGN FOR ECOSYSTEM
"Design for Ecosystem", being the theme of the event, the focus areas of the event includes every single area that has influence on the world. Some of the product design areas listed below for easy reference.
Health & Well Being
Resource & Materials
The "24 Hour Design Challenge" is a design marathon for students to work on live designs that can create a better living. Racing against the clock, young designers will be exposed to a series of workshops, mocks, product design, and showcase their design of products and solutions.The students will undergo a thrilling 24 hours, full of ideas, inspiration and fun, but most importantly, students' exposure to "live design" mentoring and helping them with finding solutions that will change lives. This challenge is for Mechanical, Aeronautical, Automobile, Mechatronics, Robotics, Production engineering students, with the background knowledge of design preferably with user level knowledge of Autodesk's free software "Autodesk Fusion 360". It is for students, who have a dream to create a new product design that will aspire to make a difference and contribute towards the global agenda.
The competition is open for fulltime students enrolled under Mechanical, Aeronautical, Automobile, Mechatronics, robotics and Production Engineering courses of any Engineering Institution in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry approved by the Government of India.
A student can participate in a team of 3-4 students.
Faculty members are encouraged to guide their student teams. In turn, the platform offers them excellent networking opportunities with global peers.
The faculty's responsibility today goes beyond the term "training" with its implications of imparting skills and encompasses a definition that includes formal and informal means of helping students to not only learn new skills, but also develop new insights into application of technology and skills into real time projects. The India Design Challenge provides an excellent opportunity for faculty members to support students professional development, as they encounter the challenges that come with putting into practice their evolving understandings about the use of technology to support project-based learning.
