Mentoring system to help at individual level

 

Realizing that the faculty mentors can play an integral role in observing and monitoring student progress and serve as guides throughout students’ stay in the Institute, the Student Mentorship Program has been introduced in the Institute from the academic session 2017-18 with the primary objective of enabling constructive and positive interaction, guidance and mentorship of students by the mentor faculty.

The mentor-mentee network is more informal than formal, allowing students to ask for help when they need it and share their problems without fear. The Faculty mentors advise the students on any kind of issue, whether academic / non-academic and try to resolve / provide the solution, to the extent possible, with the help of the concerned faculty/staff/official of the Institute.

This system bridges the gap between the faculty and students and helps create a better environment in the Institute. Faculty mentors guide and motivate the students to compete for GATE, GRE, CAT, ISRO, DRDO, BARC, and other Govt. & PSUs examinations, higher studies and entrepreneurship.

 

Feedback analysis and reward/corrective measures taken, if any

 

A mechanism exists in the Institute to obtain students’ feedback to review the faculty performance, which serves as a system of performance audit of the teachers to strengthen the quality of teaching learning process. In this regard, a Proforma, designed for Student Feedback on Teachers’ Performance in Theory and Laboratory Courses, is used, which contains questions on various performance aspects of the teachers related to the quality of teaching and learning process in respective courses. About 70-80% of the students participate in this feedback process.

 

Self-Learning  

 

Technical Societies: There are official technical societies of all the departments of Engineering. These societies function with the objective of enhancing the technical acumen of the students aiming to bring their core technical competencies in alignment with the national benchmark.

 

Technical Clubs: There are four technical clubs that are active in conducting various practical technical activities throughout the year through workshops, where students get a chance to work with hands and get practical knowledge and working experience of the various fields of engineering. These clubs are the following:

 

Innovation Cell: The students are encouraged to come up with innovative ideas for the development of new product or improvement in the existing product.

 

Industry-Interaction Cell: The students get exposure to various practical aspects of industries through workshops and interaction with industrial experts.

 

Alumni Talks: The students interact with distinguished Alumni of the Institute for exposure, motivation and guidance in the emerging fields though these talks organized in the Institute twice a year through the Alumni Association of the Institute.

 

E-Content: The students are provided with the high end internet connectivity in the Institute- both academic area and the hostels to facilitate their self-learning through availability of quality e-content as is available at various platforms like NPTEL, SWAYAM etc., e-books and e-journals subscribed by the Institute library.   

 

Workshops/Conferences/Seminars/Short Term Courses: Besides the above, there are various Workshops /Conferences/ Seminars/ Short Term Courses organized by different departments and schools. The students learn by way of their involvement in organizing these events. 

 

 

Co-curricular and extra-curricular Activities 

 

Technical Societies & Technical Clubs: There are seven technical societies in the Institute, one each of the Engineering Departments and one of PG students, which together represent Team Techspardha.  Besides, there are four technical clubs.

 

Students’ Clubs: The students’ clubs of the Institute comprise ten different clubs which excel in their own field of working and interest. These clubs provide ample choice to the students to pursue their interests in cultural activities.

 

To keep the engineering students physically fit, the physical education and sports is introduced as compulsory subject for engineering students in 1st & 2nd Semesters.
