In a major move to address the core issue of embedding work skills along with the curriculum and making the engineering graduates job-ready by the time they step out of the institution, Andhra University College of Engineering launched 3D models in the classrooms on Saturday. Compiling a 45-hour-long content for each subject, the 3-dimensional medium ‘Learn-Engg’ of Info Plus Technologies Limited caters to streams such as Triple-E, Mechanical, Electronics and Communication, Computer Science, Information Technology, and Civil Engineering. With a team of 200-plus retired Professors from renowned universities across the nation designing the content, the customised digital platform aims at enhancing the retention capabilities of the students through 3D visualisation. “Though 70 per cent of the engineering syllabus is common across the nation, 30 per cent variation continues to be inevitable in the content. This will be redefined according to the needs of each university,” says S.M. Nabi, director of Info Plus Technologies Limited, adding that there is no need for internet connection to go through the entire digital content.
At present, the 3D models are launched for first year engineering students along with a few colleges affiliated to AU on a special offer. Director of the company G.V.H. Prasad says that the e-platform will be introduced to all the engineering classrooms by June. After launching the e-content, MP and BJP State president K. Haribabu said that the avenue provides a new learning experience to students. Vice-Chancellor (in-charge) E.A. Narayana and Principal of AUCE Ch.V. Ramachandra Murthy said that the alternative method of teaching was sure to strike a chord with students and leave a lasting impact on them. – Courtesy / http://learnengg.com/index.html
