About the Workshop
University of Hyderabad, as one of the leading Universities in India gives more emphasis on research-based teaching. UoH, thus, attracts talented students from across the country for higher education at Masters' and PhD level. The University always encourages innovative ideas and research interests of all the students, faculty and research scholars. With the Schools of different science disciplines, the young minds of the University comes up with various inventions and innovative ideas during their study and research programs. However, most of the times, it ends at the doors of class room or research labs due to lack of proper orientation towards business methods and strategies.
