Anna University will bring in experts to enhance students’ skills and make them employable.
What are they doing? The university will bring in experts who will conduct classes at the campus and affiliated colleges. They’ll help make sure students are ready for the job market. The university has identified training programmes to meet market demand and revamped its curriculum after nearly two decades.
- Cambridge English will teach language skills for the first and second semesters. Microsoft will teach students Excel and Outlook in the third semester.
- In the fourth semester, the computer software Mathcad used to validate and document mathematical calculations in engineering will be taught. In the fifth semester, L&T will teach civil engineering.
Why this move? The new curriculum includes some of the latest methodologies and technologies, which some of the teachers are finding difficult to teach. For example, the Cambridge course will teach Business English according to international standards.
