Best Practices @ SIET

SIET has adopted some best practices to empower the students and society, i.e.,   C2C series.

i). Corporate to College

ii) College to Community

From Corporate to College:

Objectives and Implementation

The aim is to enrich students' professional skills, enhance employability, and facilitate training programs. The focus is on motivating students for further education and entrepreneurship, aligning them with current industry demands and job prerequisites. This approach not only fosters knowledge but also cultivates problem-solving abilities, teamwork, inference-making, drawing conclusions, and higher cognitive skills vital for professional growth.

Dedicated faculty and IT resources are directed towards achieving these goals. The faculty's role is that of a facilitator and mentor, guiding students rather than providing solutions.

Professional Training:
Key aspects include identifying learning needs, nurturing interpersonal skills for effective team performance, honing communication abilities, exploring advanced topics, encouraging critical thinking, and translating ideas into tangible outcomes. Through project-based learning, students engage in creative problem-solving, transforming concepts into real-world applications across the campus.

Initiatives encompass in-house software development, technology exposure, skill development activities, and collaborations with corporate entities. Partnerships with industry experts, workshops, and skill labs further enrich the learning experience.

Success Metrics:
Success is measured through students' participation in national/international conferences, publication of ideas, project competitions, industrial visits, and skill development courses. Noteworthy achievements include the implementation of cutting-edge final year projects, winning prizes in technical competitions, and securing promising placements.

Challenges include students' attraction towards the software field due to higher remuneration, difficulties in organizing sponsored projects, industrial visits, and internships during the COVID-19 pandemic. Securing internships in reputable industries remains a challenge.

Objective of the Practice: The main goal is to expose students to rural issues and empower them to address these problems using their technical skills. The program aims to foster a desire among students to understand, analyze, and solve societal problems while emphasizing human rights, equity, and justice. It also seeks to integrate ICT into socially relevant research and establish a connection between academic learning and real-world challenges.

Context: The collaboration between SIET and the Rotaract Club emerged from a discussion between the Principal and the President of the RC. The RC shared its rural-centric initiatives, sparking interest from the school to work together. This partnership led to the development of the Community Development Program curriculum.

Practice: The RC assisted in formulating a practical course on rural development for 3rd and 4th-semester students, resulting in the creation of the CDP course. Lectures were complemented with field studies and social activities to provide hands-on experience to students.

Evidence of Success: Collaborative efforts between SIET and RC, such as providing free food and accommodation to over 500 rural school children, have earned tremendous goodwill in villages. Students actively engage in activities like promoting health and cleanliness, human rights awareness, digitization, career guidance, recreation, and environmental conservation, further strengthening community ties.

Problems Encountered and Solutions: One challenge faced was student reluctance to participate in environmental cleanup activities. This was addressed by providing necessary resources like waste collection bins, hand gloves, sanitizers, and masks, motivating students to actively engage in such initiatives.

Overall, the Community Development Program exemplifies the positive impact that collaborative efforts between educational institutions and community organizations can have on addressing rural challenges and empowering students to become agents of change.
