Decision engine for Education

This project was about designing a decision engine for Education.

The area narrowed down was the selection criteria when deciding the college the pursue further education.

Various factors went into deciding the right college that fits a person’s requirements. And gathering that information was like a solving a maze. There were lots of complaints about the content available online and it’s reliability.

The aim was to design the interfaces with proper information architecture, giving out the right information at right place and helping the user get down from a very non specific query to a very specific query, preferably a string like course name + college name + city.
