Facilitating the generation of employable graduates is one of the essential goals of engineering education. This is more pronounced in the era of much debated and much evident crunch in quality of technical education in the country. Even though a concerted effort by all stakeholders of engineering education is inevitable to positively address the issue of efficiently transforming the graduates to industry-ready professionals, the teaching-learning practice for achieving this objective in the ongoing 4th Industrial revolution is the major decisive factor. The convention envisages deliberating the innovative teaching-learning practices adaptable to affect this transformation of student engineers, to well-informed sustainability conscious engineering leaders, by inculcating essential skills required for Industry 4.0.
Several game-changing initiatives in technical education including maintaining quality standards will be discussed in detail. Original articles/proposals/case studies covering, but not limited to, the following subthemes related to the main theme of the convention are invited for presentation and discussion.
