Interconnecting Innovation and Design: Engineers & Crafters of the Future

Do you think today's engineering education is not good enough in the new world order? Do we need to do something different or better? I believe the revolution has already begun, by integrating design and engineering disciplines.

While it is absolutely required to provide technical skills to the engineers of the future, currently in classrooms, they must also learn equally critical elements of

  • Working in interdisciplinary teams
  • Sense of design and how to iterate
  • Sustainability and social impact
  • Combining engineering with art
  • Leverage the knowledge for global markets

  • From a technical learning perspective, the engineering education is always evolving to bridge the demand supply gap. The professors are doing their best to keep the students aware of the happenings in and around the world. Along the way, the students are also getting accustomed to obtaining the required information through the Internet and social media.

    With the digital revolution since the last decade, it has not been very difficult for the teaching to go online. However, pleasantly surprising has been how the cyber-world has opened new paradigms to integrated design practices with engineering education. There are virtual labs and rapid prototyping systems available by which leaners can iterate designs along-with the technical stacks being considered.

    The new age design and engineering integration is helping the students adapt to a global mindset under the supervision of capable faculty and efficient staff. This is needed to ensure that the projects being developed on campus are almost of commercial quality and hence are more exciting and motivating. Inherently such a progressive practice leads to a project based, outcome oriented learning methodology.

    The initiative for students at the new age Avantika University integrates global design and engineering practices holistically, across the knowledge gaining experiences. The students work with best in class faculty, staff, corporates and an innovation ecosystem to be able to innovate and build better on the learning. Avantika University empowers young engineers and design aspirants to aspire for addressing our society's biggest challenges.
