  1. Using technology in education:-

‘Technology in education’ is a hot topic spoken today all over the world and many conferences are conducted on this topic. We use NPTEL videos in our classes to ensure that students understand the concepts in depth. NPTEL videos are part of our time table and many good NPTEL online courses are pursued by our students and faculties. We also use “Learning management system” to ensure that students are getting all the learning materials from this portal.  In case the student miss any class, he or she can go through the LMS materials and get themselves ready for the next class with the topics they had missed out.

 

  1. Knowledge sharing sessions:-

We believe in knowledge sharing sessions among students and faculties. Students who have developed prototype or have come out with good projects conduct a knowledge sharing session to other students sharing their practical knowledge. They demonstrate their prototype explaining them the technical details of the same. This motivates the other students and becomes the seed for the next project. One such session was conducted by Mr.Jarvis, a student of AE department on developing UAVs. One other session conducted recently was by Mr.Hariharan, ECE student on raspberry pi technology. Faculties also conduct knowledge sharing sessions after attending workshops or conferences to share the knowledge they had gained in it with others.

 

  1. Software development club:-

MVJCE had inaugurated the “Software development club” on 10-2-2016. Mr.Atanu Dasgupta, R&D engineer from HP had inaugurated the club. Many projects and android applications are developed by students and faculties through this club. One such application developed by the student is sending a notification of all the events through mobile app to all our students. One more application developed by another team of students is to place request for library books by students for which librarian will respond online. Many such in-house projects are in progress as part of this club. Seminar on Microsoft Student Partner (MSP) program and Microsoft Office Specialists Certification program was conducted  to crearte awareness on Microsoft Office Specialists (MOS) certification program and how to become a MSP.  Various training sessions on PHP, Python, Photoshop, VB.net are conducted. The main focus is to train students on different design tools , scripting language and programming language to  develop the application development skills.

 

  1. VIRTUAL LABS

MVJCE is transforming the face of higher education and research, through a revolutionary new educational tool – virtual labs. MVJCE has been shortlisted for Nodal Centre Program of VALUE to establish Virtual lab. The VALUE Initiative is a project dedicated to developing these virtual labs in various science and engineering disciplines. In the first phase, virtual labs have been established in the fields of Electrical (Electric Circuits) and Mechanical Sciences (Solar Energy).
