PROMOTING STUDENT INNOVATION AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP:
The elements of innovation and entrepreneurship have been quite visible on campus by the students. Apart from the subjects that have been inducted in the curriculum, there have been courses like Design Thinking and Innovation, Management and entrepreneurship and B. Honors that are harnessing innovation and entrepreneurship amongst the students. There has been a consistent support from the college towards the students by providing platforms like annual technical fests like “Avalanche”, where students get exposure to implement innovation with design thinking and entrepreneurship, through paper presentations, business models and their entities. There are a few clubs like the Programmers Club ,Developer Student Club. which promote innovative thinking among students. Hackathons organised by the New Age Incubation Network (NAIN) help to identify potential student projects that can be funded by the Government of Karnataka. Also, students are sponsored by highly reputed government organisations like KCTU under Technical Business Incubation(TBI) in the direction to promote entrepreneurship. We have the Industry-Institute Partnership Cell which has facilities like Flexible Manufacturing System, Rapid Prototyping Machine, Coordinate Manufacturing Machine and Surface Roughness Machine, which can be used by students who have undertaken some projects, and also by the industry to train new recruits from the college. The NAIN Incubation Centre has all the facilities conducive to start start-ups by students. The teams like SAE,CSI,ASME,IEEE,DST-TI,AIACE,IEI,NASA,ISHRAE,FPSI,ACE make the students think laterally and incubate their ideas and come up with their own business and technical models. The Mechanical Department has a tie-up with AEQUS to provide CAD/CAM training to students. In addition to this, there is the Tata Technologies Ready Engineer program. Start ups in the IT Incubation centre also provide internships to students.
ENCOURAGING FACULTY INNOVATION AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP:
"Entrepreneurship by faculty has become a recent trend on campus.Our faculty members have shown keen interest to develop an interest of innovation and entrepreneurship among students. Few of our faculty members have started their start-ups in the IT incubation centre of our college. This has provided equal opportunity to faculty and students to groom their innovation and entrepreneurship skills and utilise it for their benefit.The college management has also been supportive and has accepted to patent the projects, post screening. The projects would be patented on the basis of service, research or working device. This has been a good move to encourage entrepreneurship activities on campus.
FACILITATING UNIVERSITY - INDUSTRY COLLABORATION:
Every department in the college has a Board of Studies, which consists not only of senior professors of the department, but also experts from the industry. Industrial experts from recognised MNCs and resource persons from nationalised institutions form the crux of the council. We have also collaborated with a start up in the city by Sandbox Start ups at our sister institution KLS IMER. The IT Incubation Center in our college itself provides start-ups with an address and takes no fees for the first six months. Startup India, an initiative by the Government of India, provides 75% of patent filing fee and 100% of company registration fees. Several industries have collaborated with the college and provide courses which can be taken up as honors courses.
