INNOVATIVE TEACHING METHODS

The department consists of dedicated, qualified and experienced faculty and supporting staff in various fields of Electrical and Electronics Engineering. All the staff members meet the requirements as prescribed by AICTE and Anna University. Various pedagogical activities have been followed by the faculty for the student in-order to create interest over the subjects and the developing technologies.

The following are the various teaching methodologies used in different aspects for the delivery of course:

i) Lecture Method and Interactive Learning:

  • Audio visual aids, chalk and board are used by the faculty for teaching.
  • Students are encouraged to clarify their doubts, during the lecture hour itself.
  • During the lecture hour first 5 minutes are used for revising topics taught in the previous class and the last 5 minutes is used to give summary of the current class. Hence the students will get a continuity of the previous day topics.

 

ii) Application Based Learning:

  • Students are encouraged to attend workshops from 2nd year onwards such as, Robotics, Android. As an outcome of the workshop, interested students will develop Projects/ mini Projects at the end of the workshop.
  • All third year students are encouraged to do mini projects and are asked submit the same before the commencement of exams.
  • Students are encouraged for internship in industry during vacations.
  • Students are taken to industrial visit atleast once in a semester to see the real time operation.

 

iii) Practical Learning:

  • Practical exercises are taught in the laboratory.
  • In addition to the experiments given in the syllabus, students are instructed to practice additional experiments as suggested by the concerned by the faculty.
  • Simulation software like PSCAD, ETAP, VSIM, SCILAB, MULTISIM (student version) and Power world simulator (educational version) are used in laboratories like Power Electronics, Control systems and Power system simulation.
  • Laboratories are accessible for the students during the scheduled periods and also during leisure hours for doing experiments.
  • Charts are displayed in laboratories through which the students can gain basic idea about different IC’s, Circuits, Devices, Electrical Machines and various Software packages.
  • Students are taken to distribution substation available in the college campus once in their curriculum.

 

iv) Hi-tech class room:

  • All class rooms are equipped with projector facility.
  • All laboratories and class rooms have Wi-fi access.
  • One class room with automated fans and lightings.

 

v) Student involvement in Energy Audit:

  • The final year electrical and electronics engineering students are involved in conducting energy audit for our institution. This will help the students in better understanding of energy management and auditing which in turn motivates them to save energy using technical and non-technical measures.

 

vi) Other Innovative Teaching methods adopted by the faculty

  • Real Time Demonstration - Models are displayed in laboratories through which the students can see the models of transformer, motors, iron box, cables and insulators.
  • NMEICT internships - Students are encouraged and guided by faculty to do internships from IIT Bombay funded by MHRD-NMEICT.
  • Online courses - Online courses are being conducted through piazza.com and google classrooms so that students can post and clear their doubts at any time without hesitation and can download course materials.
  • College automation software - Each student is provided with a personal login wherein they can download Course Material, Syllabus, Question bank, Assignment topics, Short videos, NPTEL video links.
