The world is undergoing rapid changes in the knowledge landscape. With various dramatic scientific and technological advances, many unskilled jobs worldwide may be taken over by machines, while the need for a skilled workforce, particularly involving mathematics, computer science, and data science, in conjunction with multidisciplinary abilities across the sciences, social sciences, and humanities, will be increasingly in greater demand.
Education thus, must move towards less content, and more towards learning about how to think critically and solve problems, how to be creative and multidisciplinary, and how to innovate, adapt, and absorb new material in novel and changing fields. Pedagogy must evolve to make education more experiential, holistic, integrated, inquiry-driven, discovery-oriented, learner-centred, discussion-based, flexible, and, of course, enjoyable.
Therefore, University-Industry collaborations are the only way forward to handle the gap between academia and industry needs. Moreover, the new education policy announced by MOE strongly indicates to design such learning pedagogies which are in collaboration with industry and must be work-integrated so that the students are work-ready and fit to be employed after the completion of the learning programme.
Shri Venkateshwara University has introduced Work-Integrated Learning Programme in part-time mode, which have been carefully designed with a focus on industry practices and integrated with work requirements so that the learners get the opportunities to connect theory with practice at their workplace.
WILP are specifically focused on up-skilling needs of industry professionals, it provides opportunities to interact with local industries as well as with industry mentors that help students to prepare academically along with exposure to industry practices.
