Mountain View Innovation Challenge

AUC-Mountain View Design Thinking Challenge

AUC Innovation Hub (iHub) launched its first design thinking innovation challenge in partnership with Mountain View and the Center for Learning and Teaching (CLT), member of the Global Design Thinking Alliance (GDTA).

The innovation challenge is a 10-day immersive student workshop which will be held on June 9 - 20, 2021. The design thinking workshop will expose participants to the creative problem-solving framework, where an authentic challenge will be tackled in collaboration with Mountain View, a leading industry partner. Participants will engage in an experiential learning experience that reflects the high-impact practices that The American University in Cairo aspires to promote. Further, participants will be coached by a group of international coaches from GDTA along with expert mentors from various backgrounds.

Upon completion, all participants will receive a certificate of completion from The American University in Cairo and six participants will be eligible for summer on-ground internships at Mountain View.
