growth of engineering institutions in India, although provide
opportunity for young aspirants to opt for engineering career,
pose enormous challenges to develop competent engineering
graduates with knowledge, skills and ethical standards for
global careers. University Grants Commission (UGC) and Shivaji
University Kolhapur accorded the status of academic autonomy
to RIT from the year 2011-12, which we look towards as great
opportunity to design curriculum sensitive to needs of Business
and Industries, implement the curriculum through innovative
teaching-learning methods and introduce innovative evaluation
and assessment methods to ensure better learning. On
successful completion of the programme, Shivaji University
awards the degree. The RIT model of Autonomy focuses
on "Experiential learning which believes in learning
by doing. This is achieved through hands on experience, industrial
assignments, miniprojects and live problem solving.
Academic Council of RIT is the highest academic decision making
body which sets and maintains high academic standards at par
with the best national and international institutes, approves
the curriculum, and suggests improvements on continuous basis.
Academic Council is represented by eminent educationists,
Industry Experts, three nominees from Shivaji University,
director and Dean (Academic) of RIT being the Chairman and
member Secretary. Each department has its own Board of Studies
(BOS) which consists of reputed academic, and Industry Expert,
Eminent alumni with Head of the Department as chairman to
frame the Curriculum and suggest innovative methods of implementation
and emulate the best practices of world class institutions
and universities. In order to monitor and improve the academic
ambience, Academic Development Committee (ADC), Quality Assurance
Cell and Academic Planning and Monitoring cell ensure the
academic policy implementation.
RIT, proactively initiated steps to transform teaching-learning
process to make learning a joyful experience for students.
We firmly believe in IUCEE Mantra
"I am teaching, are they (students) learning. Say What You
Do, Do What You Say. Prove it and improve it."
This shift of focus from teaching and learning started yielding
good results. The new and innovative practices like within
a short span of a year of autonomy, we could be able to design
and implement the robust academic systems to raise the bar
of academic standards with the active involvement and cooperation
from students, academic and administrative units. Faculty,
technical and administrative staffs of RIT deserve a special
appreciation for their relentless efforts to give a joyful
learning experience to students.
Our efforts are always on, in the direction to develop an
overall personality of students to make them a competent technical
manpower for employment and self employment. We always hope
and look forward for joyful learning experience for students
and RIT should be the first Choice for both students who value
learning as an experience and also faculty who have a passion
to create a great learning environment.
We are optimistic about RIT carving a niche for itself
as a "First Choice of engineering aspirants."
