Creating Tomorrow's Leaders, Today

Introduction

The innovative educational process at BITS aims at strengthening its first degree apart from continuously evolving its higher degree programmes. The effort is to make all the academic programmes more purposeful and to improve the employability of our graduates. There is a conscious effort to bring the attitude of relevant research & development at all degree levels including the first degree.

The faculty plays a significant role in this all round growth of the Institute by participating in various activities which may be categorised as follows:                                 

  • Teaching and Course Development

    The teaching and course development have to be geared to meet the challenge of intellectual endeavours required by the integrated system of education and at the same time to fulfill the expectations and aspirations of the high quality students who are admitted to the Institute from all over India. To achieve these objectives it is essential to secure active participation of students in the learning process and to help them realise the significance of different subjects of study in relation to their total education. The teacher should also be able to contribute to the on-going process of formulating more effective techniques of teaching and evaluation and developing interdisciplinary courses and instructional materials which the system demands.

  • Research Involvement

    The Institute faculty work in several areas of research of national relevance. The faculty has to merge the individual ambition with the Institute's goals and contribute to the research efforts at the First Degree and Higher Degree through theses, practice school projects, and Ph.D. degrees etc. Further, opportunities are available for participation in consultancy activities arising out of linkages established with the outside world. Faculty members are also expected to seek research funding from various national and international agencies.

  • Linkage with the outside world

    The Institute has forged a meaningful and mutually beneficial linkage with industry by means of several educational programmes at off-campus centres. These exist in the first degree programmes in the form of PS-I and PS-II courses, and in terms of Practice School option in the higher degree (M.E and M.Pharm.) and in off-campus work integrated learning programmes and off-campus Ph.D. For running these programmes the faculty is required to reside at these centres for a minimum of two years and to work for further educational growth by drawing upon the experience of the professional world. On campus, the university-industry linkage is through the Technology Innovation Centre (TIC) where people from industry visit the Institute at regular intervals and students work on projects in consultation with them and faculty. The faculty may also be assigned teaching and related responsibilities in the work integrated learning programmes leading to B.S. and M.S. degrees. The Institute has collaborative arrangements with many foreign universities in terms of exchange of students and faculty.

  • Institutional Development

    To support the above mentioned innovative educational activities and to accelerate the tempo of growth, the Institute has evolved a suitable structure of academic administration based on the functional team work concept. The faculty shares the administrative responsibility by participating in this process both at the planning as well as implementation stages. Experience shows that the faculty need to develop an attitude of belonging to sustain innovations and growth with BITS.
