L&T EduTech, Larsen & Toubro’s hybrid learning platform, announced the signing of an MoU with the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and the completion of abridged Industry-oriented courses for students at Anna University in Chennai in its quest to develop workplace-ready talent.
The L&T EduTech learning modules will now be available on the AICTE website for engineering students across the country to reinforce their conceptual learning and expose them to the tenets of professional practice from an industry perspective, thereby improving their employability quotient.
Professor Rajive Kumar, AICTE’s Member Secretary, spoke at the ‘Academic Leadership Summit 2022’ hosted by L&T about the urgent need for an industry-oriented curriculum to help young engineers become more proficient, and urged universities and autonomous institutions to use their autonomy to select and offer courses to enhance the technical knowledge and employability of engineering students.
“We are a new industry-led, application-based, practical-oriented learning platform, strongly rooted in technology, that straddles the entire gamut of engineering & technology verticals to help create industry-ready talent. On the strength of these associations we have forged, with more in the pipeline, we are empowering our youngsters to be more productive, and better equipped to contribute to India’s growth story and thereby perpetuate L&T’s legacy of being nation builders,”explained Sabyasachi Das, Chief Executive, L&T EduTech.
As a first step, L&T EduTech has partnered with Anna University (AU), a globally recognized institution, to offer abridged industry-oriented courses to their pre-final and final year students.
L&T EduTech provides live Industry exposure through simulated laboratories and immersive programs, as more recruiters look for job-ready candidates.
“L&T EduTech has created exciting ‘applied engineering courses that draw competitive advantage from the skills L&T has developed over the past several decades to help learners build essential skills with real-world problems to meet the demands of an ever-evolving industry. This new initiative of L&T that connects with academic institutions will create the right platform for a skill-based education in engineering contributing to employment and economic upliftment in the coming days,”remarked Dr. Velraj, Vice Chancellor, Anna University.
L&T EduTech offers courses in the College Connect, Professional, and Vocational Skilling verticals, all of which are supported by robust Assessment & Certification processes. The College Connect vertical curates holistic, multi-disciplinary, industry-relevant courses in core engineering streams such as Civil, Electrical, Mechanical, and Information Technology, which are delivered as interactive learning modules in a blended learning environment. These courses follow the engineering credit system and can be incorporated into the existing semester schedule.
