I pleasantly welcome you to Rajarambapu Institute of Technology (RIT), Rajaramnagar. Higher education in India is undergoing a remarkable transformation. RIT attained the prestigious autonomous status from the year 2011-12 and refurbished the curriculum and implemented major changes in the curriculum delivery to a very large extent. Now, the emphasis is on comprehensive, continuous learning rather than rote and exam oriented learning.
The University Grants Commission (UGC) has been emphasizing on Outcome Based Education (OBE), rather than the traditional exam-centric, educational system which was followed in our country for centuries. In OBE, the real learning outcomes of students are measured in an objective manner, mainly to ensure that our higher education system is more accountable and quality-oriented. RIT effectively implemented OBE throughout our curriculum and believe in continuous improvement of the academic endeavors.
The Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) adds a new dimension to academics for the students. The students can take up courses across disciplines and develop on their credits at the same time The CBCS was introduced in RIT in 2017-18 and implemented very rigorously and effectively. Looking to Global Scenario, Engineering students should have knowledge of subjects from other branches and some advanced subjects of their respective branch in which they are perusing the degree. Regarding the same RIT has decided to take an initiative in academics from year 2018-19. Minor and Honor Scheme is introduced in academics.
As COVID-19 continues spreading in many countries of the world, how to keep learning in disruption has become a major challenge to the global education community. Covid-19 has forced universities across India and the world indeed, to suspend physical classrooms and shift to online classes. RIT India has decided to take the lead so that the studies are not conceded, and students do not fall back on academics. They have decided to implement an online education system. During the COVID-19 outbreak, RIT has launched the “Interrupted classes, Uninterrupted Learning (ICUL)” initiative, providing online education to over 3500 students from their homes.
Finally, ever since we gained autonomy, we have ensured that a sizeable number of constructive changes have been made to the traditional curriculum in creating a word-class curriculum and a stimulating learning environment as well.
Welcome to RIT…
