COGNO by Tutela

Built on the principles of constructivism, which is a chain of thought that involves learning by doing, we believe that every student should have a chance to work on a practical project that helps them explore their academic, personal and professional interests.
We help you leverage emerging technologies to realize ideas that push your academic, creative and intellectual realms. Because we believe that with the right mentorship, anything is possible. These explorations, materializing in the form of everything ranging from research papers to tangible products, embolden your portfolio and application profile to colleges across the world.

Hence, you come curious and leave empowered.

We have significant opportunities available in fields that span engineering disciplines as well as the humanities, in topics ranging from mechatronics and robotics to cutting-edge data science and product design and HCI.
We are a program for tinkerers interested in challenging the status quo.

P.S. Cogno is now accepting 2020 mentees.
