CSDI is envisioned to broaden students’ learning experiences by adding value to their education through enrichment activities and programs. We work to nurture students’ creative and innovative thinking, develop their leadership potential and entrepreneurial skills through involvement and participation in academic, personal, social and community outreach and co-curricular endeavours. In its 2015 – 2019 Five Year Development Plan (5YDP), the Centre has set forthright 3 central tasks underlying the principal roles of the center and these are:
Building Capacity: Create and develop programs in leadership and human capacity development that will help student develop their leadership potential and nurture their entrepreneurship capacity.
Nurturing Vision: Collaborate and network with key industry players to facilitate the creation of new ideas that will foster innovation, and further entrepreneurial skills development and economic sustainability.
Fostering Innovation: Initiate, develop and manage award and scholarship programs that recognize achievements, creativity and innovation in the fields of entrepreneurship, technology and leadership.
CSDI champions four key strategic thrusts to help realize its five year strategic development plan. Each strategic thrust is made up of several projects and initiatives planned for implementation within a five year period from 2014 and extending into 2019 with the aim of establishing the Centre for Student Development and Innovation as a leading institution for technopreneurship Leadership and innovation.
It is estimated that CSDI’s four strategic thrusts will provide multiple capacity building development opportunities to students, faculty, and management. By 2019, the CSDI and Politeknik Brunei would have created a significant footprint in the innovation, entrepreneurship, and leadership development arena.
