Skill-Based Education for Industry-Ready Engineers. The World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs study predicts that five million jobs will be lost before 2020 as artificial intelligence, robotics, nanotechnology, and other socio-economic factors replace the need for human workers.
But at the same time, it also predicts that 2.1 million jobs will be created in the new specialized area such as computing, mathematics, architecture, and engineering.
The new jobs created will require a different set of skills. Therefore, it becomes of the utmost importance to prepare future generations to thrive in the changing landscape.
Sohil Chadha, Vice Chairman said:
“In order to leverage the full potential of opportunities created by advanced technology we need a similar revolution in education. ITS Engineering College, Greater Noida is one such place which is focused to develop education 4.0 for students to meet the changing demands of the industry,”
“We strongly believe in combining the futuristic subjects with the traditional ones and imparting a skill-based curriculum crucial to succeed in today’s world,”.
Intense Focus on Future Skills:
“We understand that the educational institutes have a very important role to play in this dynamic era and society needs a more robust education system to face the challenge.
Along with the strong digital skills, the world economic forum has predicted that the new skills required by education 4.0 will be complex problem-solving, critical thinking, creativity, people management, teamwork and collaboration, emotional intelligence, judgement and decision-making, service orientation, negotiation, and cognitive flexibility.
With technology-driven methods of teaching, our faculty (including PhDs from IITs) follows these guidelines to incorporate these skills into the students through new and scientific methods of teaching.
The skills related to advance technologies and virtual collaboration are also enriched through project-based learning. We also include expert talks, career counselling, personality development, soft skills training, and major/minor projects that make the students technology & thus employment-ready,” said Chadha, who is an engineering graduate from the prestigious Purdue University, USA.
The Entrepreneurial Hotspot:
Striving to inculcate Entrepreneurial thought process, ITS Engineering College guides its students to start their own businesses (startups) when they complete their programs.
Industry Ready Engineers:
For the students who want to join corporates, ITS is bridging the gap between courses and the industry requirements. The students are trained for industry required skills in advanced labs. ITS Engineering College has nine Company Certified Labs, known as, Centres of Excellence (CoE) in our campus where classes and labs are set up.
Industry leaders from Apple iOS, SMC Pneumatics, National Instruments, Rockwell Automation, Software Testing, SYSCOM, Android Apps Development, R Systems, and e-Yantra Embedded Systems and Robotics among others have been invited to the CoEs to share their knowledge.
They also have software testing labs, android application development centre, and even IOS testing labs. These special labs equip the students with the latest skills and technologies.
