Government's Effort in Controling Engineering Education in India
Bajpai, Shrish; Kidwai, Naimur Rahman
Comparative Professional Pedagogy, v8 n1 p75-83 Mar 2018
Present manuscript deals with the Indian government effort in making the control engineering education, an equal standard to any developed country. Control Engineering is an interdisciplinary field of engineering which has an ample number of applications in the almost every core engineering discipline. This is the field which uses the feedback system to get the appropriate performance of the system without any human interaction. Mathematical modelling for the system designs is now performed on the simulation tools. There are multiple steps taken for control-engineering education by the Indian Government, which is a modern technology, applied in daily use from instruments to spacecraft. This manuscript gives a complete overview of different effort taken by the Indian Government to enhance the control engineering education such as developing online courses, online virtual labs, Scilab software packages, Scilab codes for books & Scilab cloud. NPTEL video courses, which are available on online platform, help the students as well as other academicians who have deep interest in the topics related to the control engineering. Virtual labs give the students power to perform the experiment online without setup of any specialized labs through the internet enable device. Scilab cloud is an open source software platform which gives a platform to the students to design the code for the problem & analysis it by changing the associated parameters with it. Textbook companion project is the associated project with scilab cloud in which scilab codes are developed for the solved examples of the certain engineering books. Doctoral thesis from the Indian institutes can be access through online at shodhaganga. With the implementation of 4G telecommunication technology in India, NPTEL videos, Scilab cloud & virtual lab can be accessed through the smartphone without computers or installing the software in smartphone.
