Centurion Open Courseware and NPTEL

Implicit in our vision for inclusive education and development is our open practice – open courseware, open content and open culture of learning. Centurion Open Courseware contains learning tablet materials developed for the courses of School of Engineering, School of Management and School of Agricultural Sciences which are free and accessible.
The University has so far developed e-content for 151 courses. It is the repository of Centurion learning materials. Even though there is lot of courseware available (MIT, NPTEL), this courseware has been developed by our faculty keeping the Centurion student in mind. The material is tablet enabled by M Learn Solutions and the students of CS Department. It is very interactive, and available in easy-to-understand format: Flash Cards, Notes, Presentations, Subjective and Objective Questions, Solved Question Banks and Interactive Assessments. So, it is context specific. The material is especially prepared for slow learners, and those who have learning difficulties. The material will help the average student avoid a backlog in any subject. The flexibility in the learning space permeates anytime, anywhere learning.
The Open Courseware is in the nascent stage, and subject to constant revisions. The apps are downloadable, and compatible with Laptops and Smart Devices. The main aim is to facilitate e-learning and lifelong learning. The most noticeable in this, is the transformation of teacher-centric to learner-centric, open education concept. Further, this transformation gets reflected in the shift from instructor-based learning to technology-based learning. The metamorphism has come up due to multiple learning styles, changing learning preferences, increasing learning needs, information explosion and new age demands.
The Media Resource Centre of the University facilitates this material development. The MRC also develops video material of classroom lectures. Some of such videos are uploaded in You Tube and are accessible from the You Tube link given in our website.

Educational Objectives

Given its focus on skill development, Centurion university mainly focuses on the following PEOs:
1. Employability

The University, through its continuous innovative approaches is being able to surge the employability of its students. While the curriculum is maintained resilient without scope for deviations, flexibility in selection of courses that match the interest of the students is made possible through introduction of free electives.
The University also is the only one in the region to encourage industry internships as a part of the curriculum. This also leads to better placement of the students and better quality projects.

2. Higher degree or research

As the university is delivering programmes in applied fields, research spirit is encouraged among students, through undertaking live industrial or social problems as projects. The University offers specific courses which make students think originally and look for new and efficient ways of looking at problems.

3. Entrepreneurship

The University is providing business incubation support to its students, faculty and alumni to encourage local enterprise and entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship is offered as a part of curriculum and is one of the programme goals of the academic programmes.

Academic Mentoring

The Academic Mentoring is a part of the Proctorial System. Students are counseled by mentor on their academic problems, if any and how to improve on their performance, career counseling etc. The Faculty mentor even tries to sort out issues of a student by discussing with other colleagues. A one hour slot per week is provided in the timetable for the conduct of Proctorial meeting. The Proctors interact with the Proctees in that hour is compulsory. Apart from the allotted hour, the Proctors counsel the Proctees individually as per need/ situation. The mentor focus starts from day one in the campus. After gathering full details on the strength and weakness of the student the mentor works continuously on the weak areas to enhance student attribute and engrains lifelong learning.

Programme Outcomes :
The programme outcomes are decided in line with the PEOs and are mentioned separately for every programme.

Course Outocomes:
Each course ( theory/practical/field project) is defined with clear course outcomes and they are part of the course outlines developed by the faculty.

The assessments are also aligned with the outcomes.

Graduate Attributes

 

Centurion University follows the graduate attributes as mandated by NBA. They are :
1. Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals,and an engineering specialisation to the solution of complex engineering problems.

2. Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, research literature, and analyse complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.

4. Conduct investigations of complex problems: The problems that cannot be solved by straightforward application of knowledge, theories and techniques applicable to the engineering discipline. *that may not have a unique solution. For example, a design problem can be solved in many ways and lead to multiple possible solutions. that require consideration of appropriate constraints/requirements not explicitly given in the problem statement.(like: cost, power requirement, durability,product life, etc.).
which need to be defined (modeled) within appropriate mathematical framework. that often require use of modern computational concepts and tools.# *(Different from most problems at the end of chapters in a typical text book that allow more or less simple and direct approach àSince this explains what is meant in more detail, could be put into training or supplementary material). # (For example, in the design of an antenna or a DSP filter àExamples could be put into supplementary notes.)

5. Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modelling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.

6. The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal, and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.

7. Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.

8. Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.

9. Individual and Team Work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.

10. Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.

11. Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of t h e engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.

12. Life-long learning: Recognise the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the industry.
