Engineering tomorrow: New fields, Newer prospects

Key Points of Discussion:

  • Engineering education post-COVID in times of Physical Distancing
  • Practical work in engineering learning ahead
  • Niche and new areas of engineering education
  • How to make engineering learning relevant to the evolving New Normal?
  • How can engineering colleges contribute more actively to social good and industrial growth?
  • How can we evolve revenue streams in engineering education beyond students' fees?
  • Engineering education calendar ahead 

Summary of discussion

  • AI, AR, VR, Robotics, cybersecurity, virtual realities, are setting the new norms in engineering.
  • Education needs to adapt to current times and is going to become a mixed-mode of the education system: online and offline.
  • Everyone in the future will be in the internet domain and there comes the importance of ‘cloud computing’.
  • It is important to integrate Engineering with the healthcare sector because health and medical technology requirements are likely to rise.
  • Courses like Virology, Bio-medical engineering, and Bioinformatics should be prioritized.
  • AI, Data-science, IoT needs to be embedded in all curriculums.
  • With the advent of Industry 4.0, blended engineering disciplines will become very important - IT, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, etc will be clubbed together.
  • Energy and Environment, Data Security, Law and Order, and even Entertainment are some sectors that will be full of scope for engineers in the immediate future.
  • Post COVID-19, the industry is giving emphasis on the evolving technologies by collaborating on the innovation aspect.
