It is extremely delighted to work along with the dynamic changes that are coming in the field of Higher Education in general and technical education in specific. The real challenge lies in bringing ‘student first’ concept in the educational practices. The need for giving a top priority to establish systems and practices to better the learning outcomes of students and thereby enhancing their employability or aptitude to entrepreneurship is highly relevant and essential.

The need for training the teacher community to understand the diversity of students and evolving pedagogical strategies to personalize the education to each individual has become the practice of the hour. Focusing on learning outcomes of the students through project based learning, research based teaching and industry ready curriculum is the most strategic formula for success and purpose of engineering education.
