Excellent reasons to select an Autonomous College

Can we opt for an autonomous College? “When you make a choice, you change the future.” Deepak Chopra

How an autonomous college is superior than affiliated colleges? This topic is very hot.Because, in this pandemic the admission process is now on.Before joining in a college, the students clearly investigate the reasons behind that selection. So, top excellent reasons are discussed in this article.

Autonomous Colleges…..Let’s go into it.

1.Modern Curriculum and pedagogy which bridges the industrial requirements.

2.Inclusion of Thrust areas of the latest technologies in the curriculum

3.More practical sessions over theory.

4. Excellent opportunities to do Innovation and Research

5.Space for Core competency development

These are the Reasons to select an autonomous college over its affiliated counterparts.

1. Autonomous College : Modern Curriculum for industry

Autonomous colleges use their autonomy in curriculum design and development to make their students employable. Because, there is an opinion about the University curriculum that it is not serving the needs of industry. In order to bridge this gap in curriculum, the autonomy is used. Autonomous colleges really justify themselves in design the curriculum compatible with current trends of the industry. As all the autonomous colleges are accredited , they follow Outcome Based Education(OBE). So, OBE drives the academics in right direction to map the competency of both students and faculty in the latest technologies.

2.Inclusion of Thrust areas in the curriculum

In this digital era, UGC and AICTE insists all the autonomous colleges to start new courses and programmes in the thrust areas. The thrust areas are

  1. Artificial Intelligence
  2. Block chain Technology
  3. Big data and Data science
  4. Cyber Security
  5. Virtual and Augmented reality
  6. Robotics
  7. 3D printing etc.,

More or less all the autonomous colleges are already in the track, but affiliated colleges are still struggling.So, the students are getting chance of mastering in the trendy technologies in autonomous colleges.

3.Autonomous means experiments

The practical components are higher than theoretical sessions.Strictly speaking, this is one of the factors why Indian Engineering loses its focus. Instead of conducting tests let the students to do the experiments as many as possible. Because, knowledge transfer is maximum during the laboratory sessions than theoretical sessions.

Many autonomous colleges nurture the students towards a better employability than better academic marks.

4. Autonomous: Innovation and research

Its time now to develop the students towards entrepreneurship, startups, Innovation and research. The students with innovative ideas can get potential employment. Autonomous Colleges unfold the red carpet to the Innovation and Research.As they are accredited by NBA and NAAC, these Innovation Research are important. Right from first year the students are given opportunities to participate in the Research oriented activties and Hackathon .

Autonomous : AI with Robotics
Autonomous : Artificial Intelligence and Robotics

5.Space for Core competency development

Competency is a term which clarifies the technical capability of both staff and students. As we have a lot of new core and elective subjects in the trending new technologies, the competency of the Staff should be upskilled. Autonomous colleges spend lot of time and money to train their workforce. This is mutually beneficial to both Students and Staff members.

Well. Being an student, it is right time for your upskillng.
