At the Yenepoya Institute of Technology, engineering education is imparted by incorporating a good pedagogy and integrated programmes to create learning experiences with right interpretation of facts. Experiential Learning or hands on training is the key to quality technical education and this is clearly achieved at our institute with co-curricular programmes and laboratory facilities. Innovation and creativity are like peas in a pod and it is the inquisitive mind that has a hunger to gather more and more information, create a knowledge pool and use relevant content to experiment, create and innovate. Through project-based learning our students get an opportunity to look at a problem from different perspectives and look for solutions; which prepares them to combat the demands of the different industries/entrepreneurships
Our classrooms are aimed to provide for collaborative and comprehensive learning that would enhance the learning experience and prepare the students for challenging roles in the future. Therefore, we believe that there is a constant need for technical educators to update and upgrade. Our faculty also need to learn, un-learn and re-learn to remain contemporary and fill the need gaps in learning. Trained faculty with research oriented mindset are a part of our team which imparts technical knowledge to future ready engineering graduates
Education is about Learning for self and acquiring the wisdom of life. The definition of success can vary with perspectives. With success comes the attitude towards winning and spirit of achievement; and education should aim towards preparing the mind-set for excellence. Excellence can be achieved in various fields depending on an individual skills and capabilities.
Technological growth and business initiatives have provided a lot of opportunities for employment. Engineers play an important role in improving the standard of living of the society. Future Engineers are given education, and moulded at engineering institutions. As the head of the institution I assert that character building is an important area of growth along with excellence in multiple disciplines for my students. At YIT focus is on value-based learning, soft skills development, leadership training, the art of self-governance, crisis management and so on. Finally education is all about providing specialized skills and negotiating tools to the coming generation that can be used constructively for the betterment of mankind.
YIT will set the standard for Engineering Sciences education in the Twenty-First century. We are committed to creating new milestones and standards for students to experience an unparalleled educational journey that is intellectual, socially and personally transformative.
YIT will endeavor to educate and transform the student community by instilling in them pride in their gifts and talents, nurturing them and guiding them in how best to utilize it for human welfare and progress.
