STRATEGY#2: PROMOTION OF INTER-DEPARTMENTAL COLLABORATION
· Inter-disciplinary projects must be taken up
o Projects on subjects like robotics, hardware, machine building are done through active collaboration between students of various streams of engineering.
o Such projects must be encouraged in third as well as final year of graduation.
· Extra-curricular clubs
o The activities of co-curricular and extracurricular clubs must be extended to include the students from all departments.
o Any project which is done as a college event in a club should be done with active participation of students from all departments.
