Digital Diabetes Assistant (DDA): Students designed a mobile application for technologically literate and responsible caretakers for looking after their diabetic patients. It is comprehensive and easy to use which, helps them manage day to day tasks effectively. To achieve this, a user-centric approach was adopted by conducting semi-structured interviews of relevant stakeholders and designing a culturally appropriate, user-friendly app which assists caretakers in managing their diabetic patients.

Special Learning: Around 1 in 700 children are born with Down Syndrome, a genetic disorder that causes cognitive as well as psycho-motor disabilities, which in turn hinders the development of the affected person. A child with Down Syndrome requires a greater amount of time and effort to learn the same things a child without Down syndrome might take.  Due to this reason,  the capabilities of these children are underestimated, as their milestones are delayed compared to their peers, whether they are of physical growth, or mental development. In Pakistan, there is very little awareness about Down Syndrome. There is a need to introduce new methods of learning for these children, that require less effort from both the children and their parents (or teachers). Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) techniques can be beneficial for these children as they provide a focused solution. To address this problem, students conducted user research and field studies and decided to create Special Learning, an Android application that teaches concepts such as letters, colors, numbers, and general knowledge specifically catering to the needs of children with Down Syndrome.
