How do you see engineering education in India?
With India having over 3,400 engineering institutions offering engineering education in different faculties,students looking to acquire technical education today have a wide spectrum of institutions to choose from unlike in the past where only the IITs, NITs and a few prominent engineering institutionswere preferred. And now with education gaining an industry status, it has become important especially for the engineering institutions to compete and to become the most preferred or highly ranked, as it will help them solicit admissions to sustain and progress.

Today, like any corporate enterprise in the foray to succeed; the engineering institutions too need to solicit admissions by projecting their ranking and USPs, which is something unheard of in the past. Many aspirants are choosing engineering institutions depending on their personal preferences and needs. Some of the primary factors that influence an engineering aspirant’s choice while selecting an institution are:

  • Curricular aspects
  • Quality of faculty
  • Pedagogy and past student performance
  • Infrastructure
  • Student support and development
  • Placements and higher education possibility
  • Financial parameters

Given the above factors it’s crucial for engineering institutions to constantly evolve by reinventing themselves by adopting new systems and practices to be graded as the most sought-after institution in order to meet the changing preferences and needs of engineering aspirants.

How do you equip engineering institutions with your innovative solutions?
As an organization operating in the learning and assessment space Globarena Technologies endeavours has always been to empower engineering institutions in standardising course deliveries,adopting the best teaching pedagogy and work on all-round student development that can bring them recognition.

To equip engineering institutions in addressing the changing preferences of engineering aspirants and to empower them with standardised course delivery, Globarena Technologies have  launched TekEdge, which is a faculty driven teaching tool consisting engineering e-content, which is integrated with ICT tools like digital boards, tablet PC’s, mobile phones, etc. The e-content offered through TekEdge is mapped to the syllabus of all major Indian Universities that offer engineering programs. The content proposed through TekEdge has been thoroughly reviewed and endorsed by expert academicians with real-time teaching experience, who have ascertained the best teaching pedagogy to explain critical engineering concepts for best outcome regarding faculty and student modules. All the modules are rich with animation, image, voice over,etc to explain critical concepts wherever required.

What are the benefits of Globarena’s TekEdge solution for engineering institutions?
TekEdge offers scalability, as it can be deployed on the institutions intranet as well as online to facilitate 24/7 access to faculties and student. All relevant engineering e-Content can be used by them in their teaching and learning endeavours. TekEdge is a solution that engineering institutions can use to overcome challenges faced in classroom deliveries due to the unavailability of quality faculty, as it can be used by inexperienced faculties effectively to produce better outcome/result. In this phase of unprecedented growth of engineering institution, TekEdge is a pertinent solution for many engineering institutions situated in the rural and semi-rural regions through which we can compete to become the most preferred institution in their regions as TekEdge empowers their faculties and students with the best teaching-learning experience at an affordable cost. Moreover, by integrating TekEdge with ICT tools, colleges can practice collaborative teaching-learning.

TekEdge comes with a clear and scientifically designed and secure hierarchical model/Learning Management System (LMS) that ensure flawless scheduling that can be used by institution administrators,faculties and students. The LMS through with TekEdge is delivered to engineering institution and can also be used to provide e-content on generic skill training especially pre-placement training. It will come handy to support students in their holistic training and development to make them well-rounded professionals of tomorrow
