IUCEE has launched IUCEE MISSION NEP in response to the recent report “National Education Policy 2020”

National Education Policy 2020 has emphasized that we need to prepare individuals

  • Who are thoughtful, well-rounded, multidisciplinary, holistic and creative with ethical values, intellectual curiosity, scientific temper
  • With developed cognitive, collaborative and professional skills
  • To participate in knowledge creation, innovation and entrepreneurship, thereby contributing to a growing national economy
  • To find and implement robust solutions to problems of society

This can only be done if we change how we teach. The traditional teaching methods only encourage rote memorization. Our teaching must be changed to include:

  • Multidisciplinary Content
  • Problem Based Learning
  • Project Based Learning
  • Practice of Soft skills
  • Experiential Learning
  • Innovation and Creativity
  • Design Thinking and Entrepreneurial Thinking
  • Social Emotional Learning

Following 11 members of the IUCEE Consortium have decided to collaborate in the Implementation of NEP 2020 starting with first year engineering students during the academic year 2021-22.

  • Chitkara University, PJ
  • BH Gardi College of Engineering and Technology, GJ
  • Vishwakarma University, MH
  • Rajarambapu Inst of Technology, MH
  • KK Wagh Inst for Engg Ed and Research , MH
  • RV College of Engineering, KN
  • St. Joseph Engineering College, KN
  • Nalla Malla Reddy Engineering College, TS
  • Vasireddy Venkatadri Inst of Tech, AP
  • Hindustan University, TN
  • Kalasalingam Academy of Research and Education, TN

IUCEE will assist these institutions in designing and implementing a prototype using AICTE model curriculum with focus on first year engineering courses:

  • Mathematics: Calculus and Linear Algebra
  • Mathematics: Ordinary Diff Equations, Complex Variables
  • Mathematics: Probability and Statistics
  • Physics with Lab: Introduction to Electromagnetic Theory
  • Physics with Lab: Introduction to Mechanics
  • Chemistry with Lab
  • Programming for Problem Solving  with Lab
  • Engineering Graphics & Design
  • Workshop/Manufacturing Practices
  • English
  • Basic Electrical Engineering

Key elements for the prototype will include:

  • Use real world examples from current technologies and natural context for teaching concepts in each course
  • Teach using student centric techniques such as dynamic classroom and collaborative learning
  • Students work on relevant projects in teams in each course
  • Students make connections between content in different disciplines e.g. physics and math, programming and math, chemistry and environment; english and project writing
  • Students share their understanding of concepts using oral and written communication skills
  • Students connect to real world by internships
  • Students develop entrepreneurial thinking to address real problems

The plan for the prototype will be to

  • Recruit one batch of roughly 60 first year engineering students (representing all disciplines) at each institution starting Aug/Sept 2021.
  • This group of 660 (11 institutions x 60) students in the pilot will be called IUCEE Scholars and given special attention. 
  • Identify capable faculty to teach the first-year courses to this batch
  • Recruit Upper Class Students and Senior Faculty to collect case studies and real world examples to supplement concepts in the first year courses
  • Train faculty to teach in a student centric and project based pedagogy using supplemental curriculum based on case studies.
  • Develop e-content for sharing case studies
  • Offer special elective minicourses by international experts to the “IUCEE Scholars” in order to prepare them for emerging technological and societal challenges:
  • Artificial Intelligence for All
  • Entrepreneurial Thinking
  • Leadership and Sustainability
  • Clean and Green Campus
  • Social Emotional Learning
  • Offer special programs to the “IUCEE Scholars” in order to develop their innovative thinking and professional skills:
    • Virtual Labs and Simulations
    • Design Competitions
    • Makerspace and Innovation Labs
    • Communication Skills and Team Skills
  • Explore opportunities for “IUCEE Scholars” in nearby industry, communities or research laboratories.
