Skills Development

  /    /  Skills Development

The Skill Development Committee (SDC) has identified market-oriented skills and suggested a working plan which includes, updating course or Lab contents, planning workshops, seminars and identifying appropriate resource persons. The goals of SDC are twofold;

  1. Consult on skills priorities and training needs and agree on interventions that address these priorities and needs;
  2. To incorporate feedback from alumni, parents, students and employers on skills development matters in coordination with the Industrial liaison Committee (ILC)

The SDC identified and prioritized three areas based on feedback from ILC and current market trends.

  • Personality development
  • Technical
  • Ethics and social responsibilities

A detailed semester wise program is devised aimed at ensuring coherence and consistency between the intended outcomes. A semester wise breakdown of the intended tannings, lectures, workshops and seminars is given at the start of every semester. The contents of each session are then shared in detail after discussion with the corresponding resource person.

A teacher with skills and appropriate market exposure will produce a student with market-oriented skills and exposure. A faculty skill development program is deemed necessary and thus included as a top priority in the SDCs agenda. The faculty skill development program is intended to keep the faculty updated with the current international trends in applied research and implementation. The ECE department has not only a pool of highly educated faculty but a skilled one as well.
