Message from EER (Engineering Education Research) Faculty

A 12-month intensive and hands-on Engineering Education Research Course is to take off in March 2019. It is a unique course which is a blend of modules on research procedures and writing conventions, running in parallel, with a realistic goal of producing a draft research paper by the participants at the end of the course. It is first of its kind, initiated by IUCEE to create an awareness of a quality research paper in line with scientific research methods. The faculty is enthusiastic
and excited about lessons to be imparted and learnt during the course!
