Internship mandatory for engineering students: AICTE Chairman

Mysuru: The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has made internship mandatory for all the engineering students from this year, said Anil D Sahasrabudhe, Chairman, AICTE.

Speaking after inaugurating “Fresher’s Day” of Sri Jayachamarajendra College of Engineering (SJCE) at its campus here on Tuesday, he said, “Degrees will not be awarded to students who fail to do internship.” He also mentioned that just 25 percent of the students in the country were taking up higher education, of which just 4 percent belonged to the engineering stream. He also mentioned that faculties should get updated about new technology by participating in the faculty development programmes and impart the same to their students.

“Technology is changing rapidly. Whatever they learn during their four-year engineering course will be outdated by the time they complete the course. So students should cultivate the habit of self-learning on the new technologies. Students should not attend classes for the sake of getting attendance. They should attend the classes to learn. Students should not get restricted only to their academic subjects but also cultivate the habit of learning other topics including going through ‘Swayam’, free online education on various topics, which has been initiated by the Government of India”, he said.

Three-week induction for new comers

Anil also called upon all the engineering colleges to conduct three-week induction programme comprising teaching of Yoga and softskills to the freshers. The college should create an engineering ambience so that they get accustomed to the new environment. He also called upon all the engineering colleges to set up “incubation” centres.

Advanced Material Characterisation Laboratory inaugurated

Anil Sahasrabudhe also inaugurated the Advanced Material Characterisation Laboratory established at the Department of Polymer Science and Technology, SJCE, JSS Science & Technology University, Mysuru. The advanced characterisations include Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and X-Ray Diffractometer (XRDare) funded by the World Bank under Technical Education Quality Improvement Program phase -II (TEQIP-II).

Creation of this laboratory will help academicians and researchers to study the microcrystalline and morphological aspects of materials research in the field of ceramics, metals, polymers, biological specimen and composite materials. This laboratory will also be used to train undergraduate and postgraduate students of JSSSTU. These facilities will be of use in interdisciplinary research and industry-institute collaborative activities. Prof. Anil in his inaugural address opined that this was of great privilege to JSSS&T University to have such advanced equipment which normally is available only at IITs.
