Future Action Plan
The visit has widened the perspective of the students as they now have visually experienced the work and study of Technical education. The university encourages and plans to host such visits in future. In the successive visits, the university will emphasize the following:
- Educate and reach out to higher secondary students who are interested in Engineering.
- To impart knowledge about the state-of-the-art technical laboratory facilities in the university, students do not need to go outside the state for technical education.
- Host full day activity related to school students. Enhance support for learners to make informed career choices.
- Create a greater diversity of learning opportunities beyond school.
- Coordinate with JCRE and more such organizations to indulge in schemes like RMSA.
Outcome and Concluding Remarks
The gap between theoretical learning and practical exposure is truly bridged by industrial visits. The importance of commercial visits is specified it’s been created necessary in several institutions. Also, students are always interested in what kind of work they’d be doing once getting into their preferred industry. Through industrial visits, they’ll clarify their doubts and silence their curiosities. They’ll communicate with individuals and organizations to urge a transparent plan of their dream job.
It was a great opportunity for the students to experience this field of education, the wide scope it offers. The educational trip was very informative and gave the students a feel of the hard work, education and training in becoming a successful engineer in the field of Civil, Computer science, Electronics & Communication, Electrical and Mechanical engineering. The university was extremely proud and happy to have been a part of it.
