Most aspiring engineers in India dream of getting admission to the Indian Institute of Know-how (IIT). Whereas they need to move entrance exams to enter the Mecca of engineering schooling, Gujarat authorities is giving college students in GTU-affiliated authorities engineering faculties an opportunity to review at Indian Institute of Know-how, Gandhinagar for a complete semester. All they want is sweet grades.
What’s even higher is that these college students won’t need to spend a paisa to reside on campus and study from among the finest college members within the nation.
Following IIT-Gn’s Board of Governors’ assembly on Thursday, the State Schooling division put a closing stamp of approval on the proposal that will probably be carried out from this tutorial yr.
The icing on the cake is that this expertise will not be going to value college students an additional paisa, stated Principal Secretary (Schooling) Anju Sharma. She instructed Mirror, “Whereas IIT-Gn will bear half of the tutoring price, the schooling division will bear the remaining half. The thought is to convey the very best of each potential side of studying to the desk for brilliant, deserving college students.
“Initially, we’ll select 10 college students from authorities engineering faculties who will get to spend six months (a complete semester) at IIT-Gn, learning the department of engineering they received admission to. Now we have begun the method to align semester and credit.”
There are 16 authorities diploma engineering faculties in Gujarat with consumption of near 9,000 college students yearly, stated officers within the Schooling division.
In the meantime, IIt-Gn welcomed college students from 20 states to its 2019 BTech batch. The very best variety of college students have been from Rajasthan (50), adopted by Gujarat (44), and Maharashtra (32). In addition to, 17 college students got here from Andhra Pradesh, 15 from Telangana, 12 from Madhya Pradesh, 11 from Uttar Pradesh, and 6 from Bihar, amongst others.
IIT-Gn Director Sudhir Jain stated the institute already has a programme the place college students from engineering faculties spend a semester on their campus. “I had proposed this to the Gujarat authorities which is lastly seeing the sunshine of the day. After we induct authorities engineering college students, they’ll research right here as an IIT-Gn pupil. Not solely they’ll research from the very best of our college members, have entry to laboratories, be a part of analysis actions and tasks, however they may even keep in our hostel, expertise and study from a various group of scholars on our campus,” he stated.
Jain added, “The undertaking is much more vital as authorities engineering faculties should not have pupil change programmes with different institutes. If a pupil enrolled in LD Engineering School will get a possibility to review at IIT-Gn, the tradition is totally different from his/her faculty. It is probably not superior, however the publicity to totally different cultures brings its personal set of thrills and challenges. Additionally, finishing a semester at IIT-Gn will increase the scholars’ CV and provides him/her benefit over fellow-students.”
The IIT-Gn director stated, “Our price is roughly Rs 2 lakh per yr. This involves Rs1 lakh per semester. Of this, 50% will probably be paid by IIT-Gn from its endowment fund and the remainder of it is going to be borne by the Gujarat authorities.”
Sharma stated the schooling division has put the proposal within the finances to verify there’s monetary allocation for a similar.
Officers engaged on the undertaking to make sure a clean transition for college students stated they plan to display screen college students in diploma engineering semester 4, 5 and 6 in authorities engineering faculties. The proposal has been handed over to GTU officers to work out the nitty-gritty.
Nilay Bhuptani, principal of Vishwakarma Authorities Engineering School, stated, “Engineering topics are kind of the identical. It’s simply that they might be taught in numerous semesters at each institutes. We’re screening the syllabus to work out which semester college students ought to be despatched to IIT-Gn. Equally, GTU programs beget three or Four credit. This will probably be totally different at IIT-Gn. We’re working to make sure that credit earned at IITGn suits into the GTU system effectively sufficient to assist college students,” stated Bhuptani.
He added that they’ve begun work on the proposal and plan to pick out 10 college students to ship to IIT-Gn subsequent semester.
