What our students say about Palo Alto:
“The residency module in Palo Alto was awesome!
Our classes were held at Stanford, with some lectures conducted by Stanford professors. We visited Microsoft and discussed trends in AI and machine learning with one of their architects, visited Google, Juniper, and also the innovative design thinking firm, IDEO – these visits helped in gaining a better appreciation of the trends and challenges in technology.
Overall, being in the epicentre of technology disruption was the icing on the cake! We all became wide-eyed when we saw autonomous security robots patrolling the parking lots.”
