Design Thinking

As we move ahead in the present world, a gradual downfall in the Engineering education has been significantly seen due to various reasons, be it Methodology, Approach or Pedagogy. Due to the overwhelming demand for Quality Education, many techniques have been evolved such as Active Learning and Collaborative Learning Techniques. Yet there is a wide-open gap to successfully attain the objectives of Engineering Education. In order to bridge the Gap, a tool namely Design Thinking has been introduced which acts as a complementary tool for Engineering to Work on. Design thinking is a methodology that involves lateral thinking in order to identify and solve the problems in a strategic way. The paper enshrines the role of Design thinking and its aspects in Engineering Education.
