“For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them.” — Aristotle, in Nichomachean Ethics
The primary goal of the Experiential Learning is to create a rich and wide-ranging portrait of the undergraduate engineering learning experience by offering multiple courses on experiential learning. Academic success course introduces multiple pathways to the student’s for acquiring the knowledge and skills, entrepreneurial traits which creates problem solvers for tomorrow’s world.
Academic success course creates platform where students experience a hands-on approach to learning about engineering. This course focus on educating the students about diversified platforms for learning the skills, career development, innovations, entrepreneurship, intellectual property rights. The knowledge of all these platforms makes the students to plan their career and create self employability.
