MET Mumbai Pedagogy and International Associations

Pedagogy or the approach to teaching influences the overall development of learners. At MET Mumbai, both theory and practical lessons are imparted in a way that the students reflect the proficiency and competence of the tutors and their methods as the students forge ahead in their professional lives. The consummation of MET graduates in the corporate world speaks volumes for the pedagogy in the institution.

Every important discipline at MET is imbued using interactive methods – case studies, management games, role plays, workshops, videos, networking, seminars, and more, in order to deliver a cornucopia of empirical learnings. This is further enhanced by eight weeks of Summer Internship, Live Projects, and Industry Threshold program in the fourth semester drawing in placements.

Human Centered Design Thinking

MET students are taught to think out of the box. They are encouraged to put innovation in their approach, to unleash the untapped potential to get forge ahead of the pack. With this initiative, the students launched: ‘Human Centred Design Thinking – a compassionate, synergetic, buoyant, and developmental project. The students came up with original concepts and constructed original models.

Some of the amazing models were: a modern cycle helmet, a house in a room, a modern bus stop for futuristic cities, an eco-friendly sachet to replace plastic ones, an ergonomic flex cart to help construction site workers, etc. Most of the prototypes have market potential too.
