FEES AND SCHOLARSHIP:
Full fees for Fab Academy course is 5000 USD per student. FabLab CEPT offers the scholarship worth 4250 USD per student.
Following are our selection criteria and weightage in percentage:
- Past experience of Making. (20%)
Working with any machine OR developing a product to prototyping level.
- Proposal for Final Project. (60%)
This is an idea level proposal. A project does not have to be completely resolved and doable from the day one. However, the idea has to be striking and authentic/original. One can even think of building upon any existing product/project. In this case, one needs to state clearly what the value added to the existing version is.
- Time commitment during the course (10%)
The number of hours you can spend to work on weekly assignments. Be realistic about it based on your existing commitments and engagements. Any delay in weekly submission for whatever reason can lead you to a huge backlog towards the end of the course and hence delay your final project and graduation.
- Future plans as maker in FabLab CEPT (10%)
Does one see long time association to FabLab CEPT to create a maker community in Ahmedabad? Your ambition to be an active member of Fab Network through FabLab CEPT.
