  Overview

Sagi Rama Krishnam Raju Engineering College(SRKREC) is a Co-educational, Autonomous and a self-financed Engineering college. It is one of the Oldest Seminaries formed in 1980's by S.R.K.R.Engineering College Association to provide a better quality technical education to students.

Fall 2018 Strategic Priorities

Strategy #1: Formation of Communication club :

Communication club of SRKR is a platform for communication for students from all the majors every student can
access.

Why we took communication club as an option over all other solutions ?

Students of our college are generally okay with their verbal skills and great with their innovative ideas but
 they never had a platform to express them or maybe it never occured to anyone.This platform helps them to enhance their skills.In this we will have a meet or two
per week.

working :

1. In every meeting each student needs to take up a role .
2. The roles are like speaker,evaluator for the speech,grammarian,timer,Table topic master and Ah counter.
3. There will be two types of speeches :
         -> Impromptu speech
         -> Prepared speech
4.     Speaker - One who is bound to deliver his/her speech.
        Evaluator - One who evaluates the quality of speech.
Grammarian - One who jots down all the grammatical mistakes
Timer - One who keeps the record of time duration of speech.
Table topic master - One who presides over the impromptu speeches.
Ah counter - One who counts the pauses or breaks generated by Ah's,filler words and double queches in the speech.
5. The speech can be on anything except religion,caste,sex and politics.
6. For every speech there will be a personal evaluator.
7. At the end of session there will be feedback for each speaker and faults are projected in a positive way.
8. At the season all the members of the club get to play each and every role mentioned above.
9. We will be inviting renowed speakers to inspire students with their speeches.
10. Above all it's not just a communication club, it's a platform where you can share your innovative ideas,startup plans and research options.


Strategy #2: Conducting design thinking classes:

These are the special classes apart from academics conducted for the students.In this we will be teaching about
design thinking and how to think innovatively.This will stimulate the thinking of the students and help them think 
differently

Why we took design thinking classes as an option over all other solutions?

In current academics we donot have any subject related to design thinking.Most of the students dont even know what design
thinking mean.It is very important to students to know abou desingn thinking.So we planed to takeup classes for students.

Working :

1.We will start classes on design thinking for students by UI Fellows
2.Teach what is design thinking thinking and 5 steps of design thinking
3.Give them various real time situations to stimualate design thinking
4.Give students worksheets and make students do them
5.pick up various innovative ideas for various problems from students
6.Taking that idea to faculty champions and implement it with help of teachers.

Strategy #3: I-Express

I-EXPRESS is an inner campus online website for students to submit their ideas to faculty. He/she can also know the previous startup's in college.

Why we took I-EXPRESS as an option over all other solutions? 
Some student fellows may hestiate to express their ideas directly to the faculty, for these peers this website is going to help them to express their ideas indirectly to the management. If he/she idea is impresive the faculty can contact them and can give guidence for further steps.

Working:
This is a website for only our campus,this website can be accessed by the students through their college registration id.
  1. This can help students to talk with the faculty indirectly.
  2. It can promote students to start their own startup by giving college funds.
  3. It can help students to know about their college startup's, which are running at present.
  4. It can also reduces the cummunication gap in between students and faculty.
  5. It can help students to feel free to express their view or ideas.
  6. Students can be mentored by the faculty according to their individual idea's.

Strategy #4: Innovative Lab Extension 

As the name suggests it's an extension to the labs that the students have access to as a part of their curriculum.This extension triggers them to think and urges them to find a solution for the problems that they find in this process.

Why we chose Innovative lab extension over other solutions?

The equipment that we have in our labs are as old as our college which dates back to the 1980's.There is a huge gap between the students learning at college and the arena where they get into in the future.So there is a need to bridge these two ends.and that is what innovative lab extension would do. The students' teacher would ask them to acquire knowledge on some aspect the latest technology's working related to their discipline.They have approach the teacher within a week and the students would have to explain their teacher what they have learnt. In this process they might be able to find flaws in the existing system. These flaws would trigger the students to find a solution for it. Finally the students end-up either solving the problems which they have identified in the form of a product/service or come up with a startup idea.This helps them to improve their innovation or pushes them to establish a startup.

Working:
Most of the time the students would be left with free time by the end of their lab sessions every week. This is where the Innovative lab extension comes into action.
  1. Firstly the students are asked by their teacher to find out the working of some existing system,product or service which is related to their discipline.
  2. The students would have to find an answer to the teacher's question through internet,visiting a local company or contacting some expert in their fields.Any other appropriate way would also be encourage.
  3. The time that the students would be give would be given to answer their question is on or before next lab session,i.e, one week.
  4. By this student would acquire a great deal of knowledge and also would come to know what's happening in the field which he is related to.
  5. If the student finds a problem in the existing system,service or product , he would be again asked to find a solution or it.
  6. This might results result in an innovative solution or in some cases a startup

Spring 2018 UIF Strategic Priorities


Strategy #1: Formation of SSAP (SRKR Students Associated Platform)

SSAP is an online community for SRKR students. He has access to all information regarding his current course and participate in discussions containing professors and students.

Why we took SSAP as an option over all other solutions?

In the current digital world, student learning should also be digital. Conventional methods of learning and interacting with other students have to be changed. In our college, right from marking attendance to writing notes there is no other alternative. Once a student skips or misses a class he has to run to the lecturer or his friend to learn the lesson or take a Xerox. This has to change. Even interaction with lecturer is limited to college premises and working hours. Why can’t we make them available to students as long as they are awake? From these questions came the answer SSAP.

Working:

This is a website and student is given a login by the college. This prevents other college students from accessing it.

  • PDFs of lecturers will be made available. This serves as a reference only but is not a substitute to running notes.
  • COL lectures will be made available in this website. This is our second strategy.
  • Students are engaging in discussions in WhatsApp groups or other social media. There is high chance of getting distracted. It is our responsibility to assist them and provide a platform for them to engage in such activities.
  • Assignments are given in SSAP itself and students can complete and receive credits. Credits based attendance is our #4 priority.
  • Direct interaction with faculty and clarify doubts.
  • Articles on current trending problems so that student can utilize his knowledge in coming up with solutions for the same.
  • Daily attendance is shown. This is actually necessary for students having a minimum attendance percentage to attend examinations.
  • Minors(we are planning to start a few) are offered from SSAP itself.
  • Coding contests and quizzes are conducted in SSAP and credits are given to top performers.


Strategy #2: FORMATION OF COL (COLLEGE ONLINE LECTURES)

We are thinking to have a have a online platform with the lectures of each and every subject and providing the students with appropriate  PDF’s of notes that are required for their learning purpose. This marks for a better interpretation of the concept.

WHY WE TOOK COL AS A SOLUTION OVER ALL OTHER SOLUTIONS?

We observed that the grasping power of each and every student in the class is not the same, some students like to listen to the lecture of their faculty one more time, some would like to listen to lectures during the time of exams. The way our lectures explain will be more familiar to our students and they know how to mention them the points that are actually important .COL gives the opportunity for the lectures to explain the topics more practically and provides chance for the students to learn subject in a purposeful manner. There by COL makes a way for students to learn subject wherever and whenever.   

WORKING:

  • Firstly, we will get the total info regarding the various subjects taught in various branches.
  • Then proper information from other students about a particular faculty to be assigned for the video session teaching.
  • A commonly elected lecturer is a better providence for the students for better access of the concepts of the subject.
  • Initially, a less number of videos must be prepared and uploaded for getting the response from students and if the response is very good then further improvising of the website can be handled after gathering ideas from various faculty and students.
  • As the videos start to get the top notch response we will start uploading various notes from faculties for the students to prepare for various exams.
  • As the number of videos goes on increasing the learning platform will gain popularity for its varied learning opportunities.
  • This would help them gain a great deal of knowledge and can possess multi-disciplinary subjects.


Strategy #3: CREDIT BASED ATTENDANCE

We had a vision of the future where attendance should not be a barrier for students to get themselves exposed to knowledge and various technical activities.

Why we took this as an option over all of the solutions?

Students who are actually interested in activities out of the class are not attending things due to the fear of attendance and students who are attending those events are losing their class attendance. This arises an issue as attendance shortage leads to severe disciplinary actions. Due to this reason the participation of students in various technical events is going on decreasing. It is important to support the students in the way they are interested.

Working:

We are going to fix particular credits for each event that is being conducted in the college premises.

Head of that particular event will be sending the candidate list to their respective class teacher.

That lecture will add credits to that particular student.

The student with minimum credits will be assigned with no increment in attendance as he neither attended the classes nor attended the events.

This provides a uniform management of attendance with no misjudgment of the student. And a better exposure to the outer events and activities.


Strategy #4: Disc of Fellowship

We would like to develop inter-disciplinary skills across the campus, therefore resulting in collaboration between different branches and extraordinary solutions.

Why we took this as an option over all of the solutions?

The disc of fellowship is unique over the rest all b itself. It gives the students a platform to exhibit their team play skills alongside with their core technical skills. This brings out projects/products/ideas that will be flawless for the most part as it involves minds of diverse engineering background. Since diverse minds dwell deep into their ideas they will be able to ace out with a good set things which may even change the scenario of the problem which they have targeted.


Working:

Firstly, we consider people from all the branches. Students from all the branches must team up into a single group of certain number. This ensures the students of all the branches to interact with each other.

After, the students are teamed up,a set of problems at their campus are put forward.The teams are now allowed to target a problem so as to bring out an effective solution for it to hit it out.

Now, the students are given certain period of time during which they work vigorously over that and try to bring out solution of their own.They are also allowed to make use of the college resources during this process.This is the part where the main motive of disc of fellowship program comes to life.

Finally, the best suited and efficient solution will be awarded and will be brought to life.

 It would enhance students’ thinking capabilities extending their boundaries. And working together in groups would help them develop their technical as well as communication capabilities. 

Fall 2017 UIF Strategic Priorities


Strategy #1: Formation of ECC (Extracurricular Club).

We shall form a club called ECC, which is a place for their hobbies (like Photography, Short Films, especially Sports), in other words weform hobby Clubs.

Why we took ECC as an option over all other solutions?

The first question that we answer is “Why to form a new club rather than using the existing ones in our college?”The answer is very simple there are no clubs in our college which are determined to work over the extracurricular objectives,thoughsome clubs like YES+ and PAIE are working on some of those activities they are completely different and they share no common core.By forming club we don’t mean of forming a completely new but to make all other clubs working independently to work together and allocating a common place for them.

Working:

Initially, all of these would be formed in small rooms and works after class hours then everything will be developed to a commonplace or common building based on the economic resources available then.

  • Sports Club: Initially the club will be formed as both PT(Physical trainers, who are already available in our college)as heads of these cubs.The work done by them is conducting monthly competitions and raising funds, recruiting coaches for respective sports and conducting summer coaching classesetc.
  • Short film & Photography Club: Our campus is located in an ecosystem where photography and short film making is very high, but every resource and people are not at one place so they could use them with much more efficiency.so our second part of ECC will be short film and photography club.It will unite all the people with interest and resource at one place.Fund raising will be done by conducting workshops on photography by the members of the club to the interested ones,and once the fund is raised the club itself sponsors and makes films under our college banner.
  • College Radio & Newspaper:Our third part is campus newspaper and radio.This will be the best place for running any campaigns or passing any information fastly on our campus.


  • Dance & Music Club:In this, we include different working clubs like PAIE and YES+ to this segments so they can work in more optimum level.


Strategy #2: Promoting I&E on our campus.

It can be achieved bymakingi-hub & SACas the place where all the departmental organizations(like ACE, AEE, IETE, IE, AME, CSI) collaborate.


Why we took this as an option over all of the solutions?

We thought that rather than forming a new club or increasing the number of programmes we shall first inculcate I&E style thinking among the students.For this, weare using available organizations toaccomplish this purpose.

Working:

  • As departmental organizations conduct events every week, we ask them to conduct some sessions like Brainstorming on I&E, design thinking, and real-world problem solving etc.
  • We conduct “Yearly summit” promoting I&E. You may ask me “whyto conduct a Yearly Summit to promote I&E ?” , Well, here is what I personally felt, when I was in my first year of my bachelor's degree, I thought that to be an Entrepreneur we need to have a good economic background. By Conducting Yearly summits we can promote I&E on a great scale.
  • By conducting some Innovation Convention programs across the campus.
  • Conducting motivation talks to students.


Thus as we collaborate with departmental organizations, the reachability of I&E will be high, and within no time we can see a great I&E on our campus.


Strategy #3: Enhancing Student - Industry RelationShip.

Our college definitely lacks ingoodindustryto student relationship.We are well educated but don’t have industrial exposure.

Why we took this as an option over all of the solutions?

We took this other than going for industrial tour or organisingworkshops because they would disturb the curriculum here in the college.Hence we try to link the problems faced by real companies and give to our students to solve.Students may not get the right solution but it would definitely make them familiar to industrialscenario,wewould transfer some of best solutions to industries and they would decide on the solution practicality and would use if that worth them or else they would give a feedback.

Nowadays, a student can get good Industrial exposure when he/she works as an intern in any company. This is the only way that students nowadays choose, but it has many backdrops like missing classes and many other. So, we came up with some ideas like


  • Making students work on some practicalprojects (like creating Web Applications for schools, hospitals or Developing censored based IoT products for some real-time house Automation).
  • Student partnerships programs with various Internship providing platforms like InternShala Student partners program, provide an opportunity to peers at his/her campus to be well updated with the latest Internship or research opportunities.
  • Maintaining good relations with local companies andresearch incubators inour ecosystem.


By doing so, Students on the campus can have some really good exposure towards clients-server based relations when they are actually studying.


Strategy #4: Changing the Way of Teaching.

We think that old teaching methodologies are taking students back in time, they(students) are bounded in college and could not go out and learn new things and technologies, the mediumthrough which education is delivered is also very old.

Why we took this as an option over all of the solutions?

We think that ifattendance andmedium of delivering subject were changed, would give the benefits of all other ideas.we talked to peers and our mentor and faculty and came to this solution.As mentioned above we believe that old teaching techniques are taking students back in time than fourth.We think that this is the root most problem to be solved.

We are going to solve this with 2 solutions.

We first thought of digitalising  classrooms;” which is pretty much old” right ? so we thought that we shouldnormalsmartIdea and that gave us the thought  of a”VIRTUAL REALITY CLASSROOM”

This works as follows; by using 360°cameras we shoot all the instruments and working with top industries, making portions of technologies, projects under a building and so on.we then place a trail class room in every department and each student and teacher are given VR Boxes the and are taken to the place where real things actually work virtually.There will be a sound system in the room so thatteachercould teach the students on the go of the tour.

The other most common problem we face is Attendance.

We believe that being an Engineer in 21st century mean he/she should not limit their learning in the four bounded walls of the college but travel, explore, watch, communicate and learn.But to do this attendance will be the restrictive term stopping us.

But removing the attendance will be a very bad option because this would drastically disturb the college learning environment.

So we thought of  an idea calledgo with your attendance”

This idea is all about creating a platform where students can sign up with their registration numbers and every teacher in the college will have their respective pages where all the classes they took in the semester would be uploaded on go.Every student who signs up will have two choices whether

1. He could watch them for free or

2. If he is out of the station and missed the session he could get attendance for the videos he watched but every attendance granting video will be with some cost ,once he pays the fee he is allowed to view the video and at the end he should answer some random questions to ensure he successfully watched it which is the primary motive of attendance .once a student completes all these his registration number will be appeared on respective teacher’s profile and thus he will be awarded with attendance.So this will give students freedom of learning whenever they want and will grant time for them to work on their passions.


So we think these two solutions could be the primary steps towards the change that we all wish to see in the future.

Role of Faculty Advisor:

Faculty advisor plays the key role in all thedecision makingof this organization. Every activity that is being conducted by the organization haveto be approved by the Faculty advisor before being brought into action.

Strategy #2: Misconceptions handling and Motivating students.

There are a lot of misconceptions in students regarding the college. Although, the college is veryintrestedin providing a platform for its students they feel that the college isn't providing resources for their projects. At the same timewe also have to act as a mediator between the students and the college management which helps them in building mutual relations with each other.

One of the main mottos of Team I-Hub is to become a platform b/w students and management  which solves this problem. Every Doubts,Questions,Problems of the students can be brought to team I-Hub which are then cleared by Team I-Hub who will escalate the problem to the management.

#Motivating Students

Another problem which we observed from  our students is that they lack Motivation. As we know Motivation keeps usMovingforwardin any aspect we do. So,We had a strategy to motivate students where people from different fields will address the students once in every 10 days. These guests may be a senior professor,entreprenuer,etc., The main motto of this program being conducted once in every 10 days is to motivate students in a wathat they will get the confidence to achieve what they want.

· Influential alumni speak on entrepreneur, management and communication skills.

· Creating awarenessonentrepreneurship.

· Noticing them about various events and motivating them to participate in it.

· Assigning a mentor to a group of students. May be faculty or senior students.

· Orientations on Better ways to organize work and time management.

· Career Guidance through orientations and live videos by Principal, Hod, and other faculty members.

· Awarding freshmen students, who comes up with the best innovative idea.


Strategy #3: College app for information access and feedback.

Now-a-days people are good at using apps rather than reading books. Our college doesn't have an app although people are more interested in using that. So, in order to pass the necessary information we hereby come up with an idea of developing a college app.

This app works under the following guidelines :

· Giving a unique ID to allit'susers

· Providing details of  allit'sdepartments

· Including faculty

· Letting students connected with the faculty for guidance

· Giving information regarding the assignments Information regarding Events conducted by various departmentalorganisations

· Ratings of the events conducted by clubs

· Feedbacks concerned with the respective faculty

· Newsfeed regarding what"s going on! in the college

· Information regarding the percentage of attendance the student secured

· Schedules of all the lectures

In thiswaypeople get more connected with the faculty and with the information about various programs.  

Strategy #4 :Encouraging Sport :

There is no information about the games conducted in and outside of thecolloge.P.E.T(Physical Education Teacher) shows interest for only specific games and neglects the other games.  

So, there is an idea  to start a sports club. Which brings students talent out (who are interested). It's main motto is to encourage the hidden talents of the students which in turn helps in employability. This club contains a group of students (students from every game) for driving this .So, every activities will be conducted by these students.

#How to select the club members:

These club members are the captains of each game (Cricket, football, Volley ball, Basket ball…..etc).

#Role of Club members:

They directly deals with the Principal and P.E.T regarding any sports event that should be conducted or running events outside the college. They need to select the students for college team of each game for the next  academic year.

#Clear Idea How the Club is going to run:

Step 1:Encouraging every Section From Every Department: (department like CSE, ECE, EEE, MECH, IT, CIVIL)

In our college there are 6 departments Each department contains students of 4 years . Each academic year has 4 sections .As soon as the club starts functioning they conduct a introductory event of one and half month. Event in the sense a competition that brings seriousness among the interested candidates in each section of the department.

This one and half month introductory eventisdivided into 6 weeks . each for each department, for  examplefirst goes ECE .The week allotted for eceis again divided into 5 days. 1stday for all sections of  1styear. Each Section Should bringthereteams for the respective games like volleyball, cricket ,tennis….etc. Among these teamsthe club members select the students and form a team of 1styear. The same thing happens with the Second years, third years and fourth yearsof  ece.

Now the fifthday  thecompetition will be among the selected candidates of 1st,2nd,3rdand 4thofeceand a  finial team from Ece will be picked out irrespective of the academic years only based on the talent and skill.

In coming weekssamething will happen with the other branches too. That means at the end of the one and month event we have 6 department teams for each game .

Step 2:

After a month gap .There will be 6 teams for each game from all branches .we schedule the second event with the 6 branch teams for each games . From this 6 teams they scrutinize their skill and pick a single team for each game. That is “COLLEGE TEAM”

In Andhra Pradesh college fests will be conducted in the second half of the academic year generally they include sports .So this college teams practice for those fests

Step3:

· The Club members encourage them for participating in different  college fests and other competitions.


These 3 steps go incyclic mannerevery academic year.
