Design is the seed corn for industrial development. Ideas may remain as ideas if not for design that realizes their true potential. Design brings ideas to fruition and puts products into the hands of consumers.
Indian Engineering Design Forum (IEDF) has been established to encourage innovation in engineeering design for the Indian context. It is a platform that facilitates young and experienced engineers to connect, collaborate and innovate. Being committed to education, the forum gives due importance to career growth and self-development. Polytechnic students, engineering undergraduates and working professionals will benefit directly from the forum's activities. The forum's advisory board of experienced and eminent engineers will offer technical and career guidance.
This website showcases design trends, news and events from around the world. It includes directories of engineering colleges, societies and regulatory bodies. The forum's blog will be supplemented by an e-newsletter to be distributed periodically.
Memberships is free for all. So, what are you waiting for? Register and get connected now.
The forum's activities span a broad range of verticals:

Demo Night is a chance to see what our top startups are working on. Each startup has 3 minutes to demo their product in front of a live audience. It's not a pitch but an opportunity for each company to explain (and show) what they have been working on. After each demo, there is a live Q&A with the audience.
