Most of our teachers today apply the student – centered approach to promote interest, analytical research, critical thinking and enjoyment among students to enhance our role in shaping architectural education, and to improve the quality of the education.
The Participatory learning environment can also refer to specific forms of advanced learning techniques that are based on both situated and constructionist principles, among others.
Lecture method and Interactive learning:
The faculty use chalk and board and audio visual aids in class room teaching. Students are also encouraged to actually interact during the lecture hour by getting the doubts clarified on the spot.
The College has over 1150 computers, 58 printers 80 application software and 24 system software/language. These are effectively used for teaching. Some of the B.Tech courses are ICT enabled. The students are also encouraged to develop software for the solution of the assignments and tutorials. Many projects of final year students are completed through the use of these software.
All the departments of the college have two class rooms each with audio and video facility. The faculty members are making use of this facility for classroom teaching, interactive sessions and project presentation by the students. The college, as a policy, has planned to convert all its class rooms into audio and video facility in a phased manner.
Experiential learning is a process of learning through experience. Experiential learning considers the individual learning process. A group of students are allotted to a faculty member who looks after them and nurtures them with his/her experience in industry or academic level.
Experimental learning is a process of learning through experience. Students study 2 to 3 laboratory courses per semester from 1st to 7th semester where they are exposed to the prescribed problems and conduct the experiments on their own under the supervision of teachers. More number of experiments, beyond the syllabus are conducted. For the experiments, detailed instruction manuals are provided. The observations and records are checked and verified by faculty and are maintained systematically.
Collaborative learning is an approach to teaching and learning that involves groups of students working together to solve a problem, complete a task, or create a product. The learner creates a framework and meaning to the discourse.
Technical Societies and Student chapters of National/International Associations are active and students are encouraged to present technical papers at National / International Conferences. Peer interaction is done through inter collegiate student technical symposia which are arranged and conducted by students and funded by the College.
During the period of stay, many Industrial visits are arranged to the nearby industries in the 6th semester. Through these programs, the students visit many industries across the country and expose themselves to the industry working style.
Alumni meetings are arranged once in a year. The meeting provides the students to interact and learn from the successful industrialists and entrepreneurs. They also motivate the students to excel in their future endeavors.
3-8 guest lectures in a year by eminent people from Industry, Academic and Research Institutions are arranged by each Department. One or two day workshops and seminars are also arranged frequently by each Department. One student Symposium is organized by each Department every year.
To assimilate the theoretical knowledge and experimental studies exposed to in the laboratories and apply it, mini project and major project works are included in the syllabi itself. The students take up many real time projects to study and prepare a dissertation on the topic either at the industry itself or at the college.
The topics for Mini Project & Internship, Technical Seminar and Major Project shall be different from each other.
For the students of M.Tech. programme also, the Project Work is mandatory and the procedure is similar to that of B.Tech. students.
