Why Budding Engineers Need Industry Oriented Curriculum?
“Our job is obvious: We need to get out of the way, shine a light and empower a new generation to teach itself and go further and faster than any other generation ever has.” — Seth Godin
Education prepares young minds for bigger milestones, but the concept of employability is now gaining more limelight than ever before. Among the most noticeable consequences is the introduction of various specialized courses in the education industry. Take engineering for instance; there are varying B.Tech specializations that focus on the respective sector.
We at UPES understand the need for industry-oriented B. Tech curriculum and thus offer a wide variety of engineering courses for the young generation. Some of them are as follows:
- Geo Science Engineering
- Petroleum Engineering
- Applied Petroleum Engineering with Specialization in Upstream
- Fire & Safety Engineering
- Electronics IOT based Instrument
While many people understand the need for such industry-oriented courses, others are not aware of existence of such courses.
Here are a few reasons why such courses are crucial in today’s time.
- Increase employability
When students are well aware of the industry trends, they can easily outshine other candidates at a job interview. Such engineering students can asses the industry needs accurately and come up with the best solutions in the process. The faculty at UPES not only imparts world-class learning but also transforms the students into professional individuals.
- Boost confidence
It’s not just the knowledge that boosts students’ confidence but also their interpersonal skills. At UPES, we offer Personality Enhancement Program (PEP) under the aegis of Centre for Professional Communication. During this program, we cultivate soft skills to boost the overall confidence of students.
- Make them future ready
Industry-oriented Btech curriculum brings forth a unique amalgamation of theory and practice. From industrial tours and engaging guest lectures to workshops and student exchange programs, we ensure the development of students’ potential through every possible step. All these train the students for future opportunities while strengthening their fundamentals.
Owing to our industry-oriented courses and curriculum, our engineering students have been placed in some of the top firms in the world. Some of them include Xebia, Hyundai, Royal Enfield, ONGC, Ashok Leyland, and L&T.
