  • To enhance the technical knowledge with respect to the current scenario through collaboration with industries and research organization

  • Emphasize Product Design aspects to enable students to be innovators in the field of Rubber and Plastics Technology

  • Motivate the students to become job providers rather than job seekers

  • Take up inter and multi disciplinary research and consultancy projects with industry and research establishments

 

PROGRAMME EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

The B.Tech Rubber and Plastics Technology curriculum prepares students for successful careers and life-long learning as productive and innovative technologists in a rapidly changing world. Our students learn the basics of problem solving in required mathematics, science, and engineering courses and learn the fundamentals of rubber and plastics technology courses and core courses including technical electives and management related courses. All students have the opportunity to broaden their academic experience and strengthen their preparation for life-long learning by taking courses from a broad spectrum of programs across the university, including environmental science and engineering, professional ethics, management and many others.

This education is meant to prepare our students to thrive and to lead and to prepare them to achieve our two Programme Educational Objectives (PEOs)

PEO 1: Career Development: Graduates of the programme will have successful technical and professional careers in Rubber and Plastics industry, research and management. 

PEO 2: Lifelong learning:  Graduates of the programme will have sustained interest to continuously learn and adapt new technology and development to meet the changing industrial scenarios

 

(A) PROGRAMME OUTCOME

Engineering Graduates will be able to:

1. Engineering knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.

2. Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.

3. Design/development of solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.

4. Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.

5. Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modeling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.

6.The engineer and society: Apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.

7. Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.

8. Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.

9. Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.

10. Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.

11. Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.

12. Life-long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.

 

 

(B) PROGRAM SPECIFIC OUTCOMES (PSOs)

 

1.  Backed with fundamental understanding of working mechanism, the successful graduate will be      

     able to design and develop rubber and plastic compositions.

2.  The graduate will be able to design and employ mathematical software  tools in understanding the 

     behaviour at finite level.

3. The graduates have environmental consciousness and the carbon foot print 

    of the field of study.  This is demonstrated by some of their extra curricular activities like collection, 

    segregation sorting  and economic reuse of end of life cycle polymer products. 

 

4.  The graduates will be able to design appropriate business plan to turn out to be entrepreneurs.

 

STAKEHOLDERS OF THE PROGRAMME

         Our students are our primary stakeholders. Our program is aimed toward providing our students with knowledge and skills that enable them to embark upon successful engineering careers, undertake higher studies, research, or contribute to society in other ways. For this reason, we consider both current and former students as part of the student stakeholders. On average, about 90-95% of our students enter the workforce, and about 5-10 % enrolls in for higher education after graduation and a few students after industrial experience becomes entrepreneurs. Considering the high percentage of our graduates who enter the workforce, employers of our graduates are also important stakeholders.

        Our faculty and students are members of the professional organization such as All India Rubber Industries Association (AIRIA), Indian Rubber Institute (IRI), Indian Plastics Institute (IPI) and interacts with all organization with respect to curriculum and laboratory practical development, In-plant training, project work and placement.

 

 

The Stakeholders committee members consists of the following representatives from:

  • Alumni
  • Employer
  • Present students
  • Industries related to this field / Research Organization
  • University-Industry interface committee members
  • Academics
  • Professional organization related to Rubber /Plastics/Polymer industries
