The learning modules offered by L&T EduTech will now be featured on the AICTE website.
The hybrid learning platform from Larsen & Toubro, L&T EduTech took a step ahead for creating industry-ready students by announcement of MoU with the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and by delivering abridged industry-oriented courses for the students of Anna University, Chennai.
The learning modules offered by L&T EduTech will now be featured on the AICTE website and will be accessible to engineering students across the country. These modules will reinforce their conceptual learning and will expose them to implementation of theoretical principles in an industry setting thus enhancing their employability.
Speaking at the ‘Academic Leadership Summit 2022’ hosted by L&T, AICTE’s Member Secretary, Professor Rajive Kumaremphasised the urgent need for an industry-oriented curriculum at engineering institutions to equip young engineering graduates with industry-ready knowledge. He also urged universities and autonomous institutions to select and customize courses to enhance the technical acumen and employability of engineering students.
“We are a new industry-led, application-based, practical oriented learning platform, strongly rooted in technology, that straddles the entire gamut of engineering & technology verticals to help create industry-ready talent,” explained Sabyasachi Das, Chief Executive, L&T EduTech. He added, “On the strength of these associations we have forged with more in the pipeline, we are empowering our youngsters to be more productive and better equipped to contribute to India’s growth story and thereby perpetuate L&T’s legacy of being nation builders.”
L&T EduTech has created exciting “applied engineering courses that draw competitive advantage from the skills L&T has developed over the past several decades to help learners build essential skills with real-world problems to meet the demands of an ever-evolving industry,” remarked Dr. Velraj, Vice Chancellor, Anna University.
L&T EduTech has also joined hands with Anna University (AU), Chennai to offer abridged industry-oriented courses for their pre-final and final year students as a first step. They also provide live industry exposure through comprehensive immersive programmes and simulated laboratories.
The three verticals of L&T EduTech namely College Connect, Professional, and Vocational Skilling underpinned by robust Assessment & Certification processes provide these courses. The College Connect vertical has carefully curated multi-disciplinary, holistic, and industry-relevant courses in core engineering streams like Mechanical, Civil, Electrical, and Information Technology that are offered as interactive learning modules in blended mode. These courses are in accordance with the credit system for engineering programmes and can be placed easily into the existing semester pattern.
