July, 2019: Jamshed Bharucha, VC of SRM AP, Amaravati was invited as a panel member in the second edition of BW Businessworld Engineering Conclave held in New Delhi. In the premise of increasing dynamism in the industry, the discussion on ” Future Skills: Are our engineers ready to adopt the global changes?” hold its own relevance.
Bharucha expressed his concern saying, ” Most of the engineers are not working in their field. What is missing from the curriculum is skill development that would help in learning new things. We are still following a failed way of learning i.e. passive learning, where the communication is one way but in SRM, we promote active learning by involving students during the process of learning as this will facilitate the problem-solving skills”. SRM AP has active learning classrooms where regular sessions are designed with a relentless focus on improving student learning outcomes and ensuring student success in high-demand careers. Our students actively participate and engage in discussion, debates, and conversations that intrigues their interest and improves their skills. Also, for the first time in India, SRM AP introduces Collegiate Accelerator Programme presented by Minerva forum to advance the intellectual development of each student.
