CO -CURRICULAR EVENTS
Defense Engineering College has Quality Assurance and Curriculum Development Office to monitor the overall quality and relevance of education. The QACD Office shall be responsible for setting guideliness, procedures, and models for quality assurance and curriculum revision and development. Courses will be designed, delivered and monitored in line with the procedures set out in the College Quality and Curriculum Manuals which are subject to continuous revision and refinement.
Living in an environment as dynamic as the field of electronics, it would be natural and emphatically responsible to maintain the equilibrium by periodically reviewing the content and implementation tools and processes of the curriculum. The need for the curricular review is thus, to bridge the lacuna between what was aspired and actually delivered as well as to maintain the relevance and standard of training.
The basic rationale for the Electronics Engineering Curriculum is the contemporary needs of the Ministry of the National Defence and the emerging trends and developments witnessed in the profession. The Department, as part of the Defence Engineering College, recognizes the following facts. Though the curriculum was unique in the country as it had provisions for sub-specializations at undergraduate level and relatively furnished with modern laboratory facilities, it remained untouched for more than a decade except for minor alterations prompted by problems encountered during course offerings,
The Defence forces are currently equipped with sophisticated and smart weapons and platforms, which call for action both in content of the curricula and diversification of the fields of study,The field assessment made in various defence industries and establishments revealed that the graduates were not up to the required level of competence technically as well as in military values and character development,The quality assurance tools that are vital in promoting the level of training were poorly managed and implemented,Defence is a work environment where teamwork prevails. The new curriculum presumes that activities are carried out in teams and that graduates of diverse professional background work together to solve multi-disciplinary engineering problems.
