Institutional access (IA)

Enabling knowledge exchange for universities globally.

What is Institutional Access​

Institutional access is first of its kind platform enabling institutions to have a knowledge exchange for their students where they work on an international design problem listed/hosted on UNI in a synchronous time-frame. This enables participants to draw the international design scene to enter their studios and scale their studio's ideas-philosophy to the global level.​

Why get Institutional Access

Challenging problems are fun to solve together. We understand how tough things can be when managing both academic courses and working on challenging design problems together. "Why not bring both together?"
