Prospectus are bright in Kerala. Steps are been taken to ensure students from Kerala do not lag behind for want of skill or knowledge. Kerala has traditionally been an epicentre experience in academic and intellectual pursuits. However, it is imperative in today’s market driven economy to make this education, application oriented so that it can lead to creation of wealth and benefit not only the apparent and immediate stakeholders, but society at large. As the newest technology university of the state. KTU is committed to undertake that task, in both letter and spirit. They are trying to introduce new courses, revamp the teaching-learning process and bring about holistic development of the students so that their employability prospects are enhanced and they become excited about entrepreneurship. For achieving this goal Vedavyasa Institute of Technology is highly committed and moving right direction. Bouquet of courses Today, the job market demands expertise in cutting edge technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Language (ML), Internet of Things (IoT), Data Science, Analytics, Block chain, drone technology, Virtual Reality/ Augmented Reality and the likes. These need to integrate throughout the curricula and across different domains of knowledge. It is essential to acquire these skill sets to gain toehold in the industry and prosper there. Vedavyasa Institute of Technology is aggressively promoting the introduction of these technologies in its courses. It is also in the process of setting up advanced labs dealing with these technologies in its sprawling academic campus at Vedavyasa Hills. Moreover, Vedavyasa Institute of Technologyis encouraging students to get familiar with these technologies by learning them from Massive open Online Courses (MOOCs) offered from various international platforms. The college is designing bouquet of such courses which are being updated on a continuous basis. Holistic Approach To me the most important task of an institution is to create an enabling academic environment for the students and mentor them with a personal touch so that students can enjoy the teaching –learning process. Teaching should never be a one way process; rather students and teachers should never be a one-way process; rather students and teachers should be co-learners in a stimulating academic milieu. InVedavyasa Institute of Technology this kind of holistic approach, a blended/flipped learning approaches follow. Every college must use the latest teaching tools like Learning Management System (LMS) and different mobile apps to aid the pedagogy. It is mandatory to have a language lab as per AICTE curriculum. The engineering colleges carry out their own training courses on soft skills. Vedavyasa Institute of Technology is encouraging students to certify themselves on soft skills from MOOCs using internationally acclaimed courses. Overhaul in Syllabus The syllabi are updated regularly with more stress on outcome based learning adopting the CO-PO (course outcomes-program outcomes) mapping as per the university norms. However, with the paradigm change in the academic process, it is creation of the ecosystem, mentoring the students and encouraging them to be co-learners which are the Critical Success Factors (CSFs) in today’s academics. Vedavyasa Institute of Technology has introduced to continuous evaluation process and Mandatory Additional Requirements (MAR) to achieve these objectives. While many changes are being effected, more will be done. Vedavyasa Institute of Technology as well as the state governmentis working in tandem make Kerala an attractive destination for engineering education and of courses, to brighten the prospects of those passing out.
