Center for Engineering Education Development
In 2010, KGRCET became a consortium member of the Indo-US collaboration in Engineering Education. Since then the faculties at KGRCET were continuously introduced to new innovative practices in the field of engineering education through faculty leadership institutes (FLIs), conferences, webinars and workshops. These initiatives gave the faculty exposure to global best practices of engineering education leading to an exponential interest in this field, which resulted in sprouting of innovations and improvement in the teaching and learning space. To continue and foster this aura, a Centre for Engineering Education development was established in 2015 to encourage the innovation and research in Engineering Education.
To promote research and facilitate best practices in engineering education.
1. Foster an environment in the college to encouraging innovation in teaching, learning and assessment methodologies in the classroom.
2. Facilitate research in engineering pedagogy and publish the research work
3. Keep faculty members updated with the best practices in teaching, learning and assessment in engineering education through training and workshops.
4. Connect interested faculty with international experts in the field of engineering education.
5. Conduct outreach activities such as trainings, workshops and conferences.
