TEACHING PEDAGOGY

Education in KARPAGAM COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING is rich, demanding and transformative. The mastery demonstrated by KCE graduates across the professional and vocational spectrum and the influence they wield – whether in their own communities or on the world stage – is testament to a singularly empowering postgraduate experience. KCE education fosters in students the highest standard of readiness for the ‘real world,’ in terms of their ability to think, to act and to contribute effectively in their chosen areas of interest. We, at the Faculty of Management Studies, KCE, give special focus to areas given below:

On admission, the students are divided into small groups. Each group is attached to a faculty mentor who will be their friend, philosopher and guide for the next two years of their study at KCE. These groups meet frequently to analyze what they have studied the previous week or what they have read in the library or maybe to discuss an issue if anyone in the group faces one. Members of these groups make regular presentations on current topics. The faculty member will closely monitor all the activities of the group attached to him and mentor them. This helps the students shed their inhibitions, develop communication skills and become good public speakers and communicators. Students also learn the intricacies of human relations, methods of problem solving and decision making

Curriculum Pedagogy provides the experience of “Google Class room” by which management students are mould to be fit into Digital Knowledge Driven world. Class rooms with smart boards enables digital connectivity. Each student has got their individual laptops and transfers the teaching content from smart boards without time delay. The Technologies and Facilities are settled up to develop highly competent talents in all students.

OUT-BOUND TRAINING

This is a two-day training programme where students are taken to rural / hilly place and activity-oriented trainings are given. OBT is designed to bring out management skills like planning, organizing, decision making, communication, team building and adaptability in the students. The harshness of the natural environment inculcates hardiness and discipline among students.

Students are taken for a five day national visit (anywhere in India, outside Tamil Nadu), and a weeklong international visit. They are given the golden opportunities to meet and interact with the eminent personalities of the industry they are visiting and understand the multi facets of business. Enriching industry interaction sessions with professionals, give students insights into the tried and tested avenues of business.

EMPOWERING DOMAIN SKILLS

We bring in experts from wherever they are, to train and sharpen the faculties of our students in all the skills referred to here, and to empower them to face the challenges of the Knowledge Driven Era.

Curriculum and Pedagogy ensures efficient delivery through an interactive learning process. Students should know there are special moments that pull everything we have learned into focus. When theory, practice, experience, and talent all come to one sharp point—a decision that shapes a definitive course of action. When it’s no longer an issue of what can be done, but of what you will do.

SKILL IN COMMUNICATION

One must have the ability to effectively communicate in a friendly way. Though this looks easy, one needs tremendous amount of training to achieve this ostensibly simple skill. Daily News reading, Scan 360° exercises, language software’s, Communicative English Classes, Corporate Interactions, etc enhances the language skills of our budding managers.

Getting on with people is an art in which only very few people excel. One can learn this art through proper training. To be a member of a team one has to have the skill to get on with people.

ETHICAL & MORAL VALUES

A socially responsible manager always adds an ethical dimension to whatever he does to promote his business and continuously inculcates in his team a sense of value aimed at the well-being of the society.
