ICP, HSBC and Resonance
What is life as a NUton?
Intensive Certificate Programme (ICP)
Head Start Boot Camp (HSBC)
The four-week programme begins with week-long workshops on such varied subjects as actionable analytics, robotics, video editing, digital marketing, and business ideas among others. At the end of which, students get to work on a project and present their accomplishments.
The subsequent weeks witness sessions on programming, maths, skills, etc. Distinguished invitees from various fields also deliver talks on various subjects. New students are divided into groups called clusters of 25 members. Each cluster includes one faculty mentor and a fixed number of student mentors from the senior batches. This interaction encourages new students to shed their inhibitions and engage in new activities, develop soft skills, and interact with students from other disciplines. The student mentors, on the other hand, develop basic managerial and mentoring skills.
Resonance aims for the holistic and all-round development of students through the inculcation of cultural and environmental sensibilities. Group activities such as garbage collection and tree plantation entrench the concept of a green planet in their young minds. It also helps to develop a unique symbiotic relationship between the new and current students, which enriches NU’s academic ecosystem.
