BEST PRACTICE: "ENGINEERING EDUCATION PRACTICE" (EEP)

Objectives of the Practice:

To transform the process of facilitating Engineering Education and become pioneer in Engineering Education Practices, HITAM initiated various programs for the faculty to improve teaching and learning in Engineering Education and to follow various innovative pedagogies to improve the quality of teaching and better learning among the students.

HITAM believes in the concept of “begin with end in mind”, when it comes to facilitating engineering education for the current young generation. In line with the belief, Outcomes Based Education (OBE)was added to the agenda of important initiatives which would impact student learning.

The Context:

The core philosophy of HITAM is “Doing Engineering rather than studying Engineering”, to enhance the learning levels of students, various innovative pedagogies apart from chalk and talk are being implementing in the institution since many years. Faculty to become expertise in teaching, various trainings and workshops were organised at the institution by Indo Universal Collaboration for Engineering Education and other reputed Universities. The publication of papers in international journals itself depicts this practice being followed in the institution. The impact of Engineering Education is experienced by HITAM students.

HITAM is being mentored by Honorary professors:
  • Professor Sanjay Dhande, Former Director IIT Kanpur
  • Professor Ashok Shettar, Vice Chancellor, KLE Technological University, Hubli
  • Professor Krishna Vedula, Director of Indo Universal Collaboration for Engineering Education Professor
