The new National Education Policy- 2020 (NEP) has a vision to reinstate India in the coveted position of world leader at global level. It provides an opportunity to the higher Educational Institutions especially those engaged in technical education to create a system that contributes directly to transforming the country into a global knowledge superpower. It aims for an inclusive and equitable Education System and at Higher education level introduces broad-based, multi-disciplinary, holistic education with flexible curricula, creative combinations of subjects, integration of vocational education and multiple entries and exit points with appropriate certification.
The Seminar is an attempt to answer the questions that how NEP 2020 will prove to be a milestone in meeting country's inclusive development goals amidst building a robust engineering and technical community and how we can more effectively share with students—current and potential—our passion for designing systems, structures, and devices to solve problems and our conviction that engineering is a profession that offers rich rewards for serving the interests of society.
The objectives of the seminar is to chalk out Long Term, Medium Term and Short Term action plans for the effective and timely implementation of various dimensions of the National Education Policy – 2020. The Policy has created a large canvas with futuristic vision. We, at NITs, have a unique role to attain the vision by contributing our bit in accomplishment of the Principles of National Education Policy 2020.
