Preparing students to face challenges

Vignan Engineering College, which has turned into Vignan University, gave a glimpse of its expertise in imparting education in engineering and technological courses to a large gathering of B.Tech first year students and their parents on its premises at Vadlamudi near Guntur on Thursday.
Top institution

University chancellor Lavu Rathaiah welcomed the students and their parents to the inaugural session and lucidly explained his vision for the university that was ranked among top three in the State prior to getting the university status in December last year.

A bridge course was started to ensure seamless transition from the Intermediate stage to professional education. Students from all nine engineering programmes offered by the university – ECE, EEE, CSE, IT, Mechanical, Civil, Biochemical, Bio Technology and Mechatronics – were curious to understand the depth and uniqueness of engineering studies.

Vignan University designed a faculty development programme also that runs along with the bridge course for the students.
Industry needs

Former Army officers and training personnel from industry were invited to impart team spirit and organisational skills to teachers through various outdoor activities. Syllabus was prepared keeping in view the requirements of the industry and society.

Mr. Rathaiah said that the students would be trained to make them intellectually and psychologically strong so that they could face all challenges in the world outside. The curriculum facilitates the aspirations of the students who would like to pursue careers through Civil Services.

University Registrar C. Narendra Reddy said that the experience of running VEC successfully for more than 10 years would help streamline the activities. He reminded parents about Vignan's achievements like securing NBA, NAAC, ISO recognition and finally university status within a short span.

Director, Faculty of Engineering studies, K.V.N. Srinivasa Rao, Director, R&D, Sitaramanjaneyulu, Director, Academics, R.Venkatanath, deans P. Ramesh, G. Kesava Rao and M. Srinivasulu attended the programme.
