CHENNAI: Anna University and L&T EduTech have entered into an agreement to offer industry-oriented courses for final-year students. The L&T EduTech has also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) to host its learning modules on the AICTE website and will be accessible to engineering students across the country.
A release said the conceptual learning would expose them to the tenets of professional practice from an industry standpoint, thus improving their employability quotient.
AICTE Member Secretary Prof Rajive Kumar referred to the pressing need for an industry-oriented curriculum to help young engineers to become more proficient and urged universities and autonomous institutions to use their autonomy to select and offer courses to enhance the technical knowledge and employability of engineering students.
Similarly, the L&T EduTech 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. As more and more recruiters look for job-ready candidates, the courses will provide live industry exposure through simulated laboratories and immersive programmes.
“The L&T EduTech has created exciting applied engineering courses that draw competitive advantage from the skills 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.
“This new initiative of L&T connects with academic institutions and will create the right platform for a skill-based education in engineering contributing to employment and economic upliftment in the coming days,” he added.
