In the present scenario, varying demands of industries attracts educators to change their conventional teaching methodology. Employers require a big investment in up-skilling of their employees with relevant skill sets. Professionals, on the other hand, search opportunities to boost their career growth accompanied with financial support. To cope with this, Mangalayatan University Program, Aligarh has come up with a unique solution of upgrading the knowledge of an individual along with the working in their own industries.
Diploma in engineering in Mechanical Engineering through work integrated learning program provides a learning platform to integrate academic of a discipline with its practical application at their own work-place. This program is five semesters program for working professionals having ITI certificates along with working experience in the relevant specialization.
Online courses for working professionals are a boon for those who wish to do all of the above while still being employed in their full-time jobs. The best of such courses for working professionals provide live and interactive lectures through virtual classrooms that are scheduled over the weekends so as to infuse flexibility and convenience for the participants. The best weekend courses for working professionals adopt a hands-on pedagogy in the form of visual learning aids, simulation exercises, case studies, immersive on-campus modules, end-term projects, gamification, etc. Lectures are conducted live via online classes. These lectures can be attended via the internet using a computer from any location. These online classrooms offer similar levels of interactivity as regular classrooms at the Managalayatan University Aligarh campus. The online lectures are conducted usually over weekends for a total of 8-10 hours per week. If you miss a lecture, you can also access the recorded lecture on the internet.DIGITAL LEARNING
Digital learning is any type of learning that is accompanied by technology or by instructional practice that makes effective use of technology. It encompasses the application of a wide spectrum of practices including: blended and virtual learning. It is sometimes confused with online learning or e-learning, digital learning encompasses the aforementioned concepts.A digital learning strategy may include any of or a combination of any of the following:
Through the use of mobile technologies, digital learning can be used whilst travelling as mobile technologies gives us this advantage. Learners can access engaging learning material at their own place which includes recorded lectures from Managalayatan University Aligarh faculty members, course handouts and recorded lab content where applicable.CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT
Continuous assessment is as the name suggests continuous and frequent analysis of the learning performance. Moreover, this method is more of a tool, considering the increase in the need for constantly assessing students. Further, it also proves to be a technique of performance assessment that many educational institutes adopt.
Faculty set different kinds of assignments as part of your course to check what you think, know, understand and/or can do as a result of completing a section of the work or course. As well as understanding what you have to do to complete an assignment, it's important that you know what the lecturers/tutor is looking for or testing.Purpose of Continuous Assessment
A case study is an in-depth investigation conducted over a given length of time. They are used to collect and present detailed information about a person, group or situation, to try to understand what has happened and why, or to analyze the situation to solve a problem. A case study has a number of different phases:
A dissertation is a research project completed as part of an diploma . Typically, a dissertation allows students present their findings in response to a question or proposition that they choose themselves.
The aim of the project work is to test the independent research skills students have acquired during their time at university, with the assessment used to help determine their final grade. Although there is usually some guidance from your tutors, the dissertation project is largely independent.
To acquire Diploma in Engineering skills and to translate original ideas into a working reality, project work is carried out in two phases. The seventh semester offers an opportunity for learners to apply their knowledge gained during the programme to a real-world like complex project. To execute the project work; all Laboratories are available with all facilities.EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING
Experiential learning is, quite simply, learning by doing. We have all learned to walk or talk, not by being shown or told, but by practicing and refining our technique. Consequently, trainers and facilitators can implement this method in all sorts of situations with people from all walks of life. There are no barriers due to age, education, experience, ability, background or culture.
Virtual laboratories (or virtual labs for short) are a great way for learners to practice in a safe, online environment. Through virtual science lab games and engineering simulation software, learners can interact with elements, machines, and interfaces before or instead of trying them out in real life.
Virtual labs have many applications in educational as well as business environments. In this article, we will shed light on them and help you determine when and how to use virtual laboratories in your eLearning courses.Heat Treatment Virtual Lab
In this lab users can enter the heating, cooling and tempering heat treatment cycle for virtually treating complex geometry for a defined period of time. Users are allowed to graphically evaluate microstructure property changes and predict the abnormalities likely to occur during the cycle. Participants can use the Heat Treatment Virtual Lab to perform experiments such as Annealing process of a forging die, tempering process of a test specimen.Thermal Engineering Virtual Lab
Thermal simulation enables to study how systems will behave in the real world, where fluid is the driving factor. Virtual lab is the platform which does experience the variation of practical output by changing input properties on components and allow users to examine extensively all possible variations in the design and optimization of systems. Participants can use the Thermal Engineering Virtual Lab to perform the experiments with pumps, turbines, valves, composite pipes, fluids, gasses and other flow related components, thermodynamic components.Engineering Design Virtual Lab
Design Engineering which is the integration of scientific methods and creative approaches, has been a primary driver of human prosperity throughout history. The Design Engineering Lab is focused on research and education. We are an ever-changing center with continuous need for the most capable and thoughtful students and the most exciting research funding opportunities.REMOTE LAB
Remote Lab is one more attempt by the work integrated learning programs (WILP) division of a Managalayatan University Aligarh to bring the campus learning experience to the working professionals complementing their work-life learning balance. These types of labs enable faculty and students to access equipment and/or computers via the internet to perform experiments and laboratory tasks without being in the physical lab space.The benefits of remote laboratories are:
Water networks and drainage channels are considered as one of the most important infrastructure component for any city/ Mechanicalization. The hydraulics subject is focusing on that side of infrastructure requirements; the hydraulics laboratory in the Mechanical engineering department is fully equipped with all the facilities, which always facilitated to be in the services of society for the use of water for domestic, commercial and agricultural purposes through supply networks and drainage channels.Automobile Engineering Lab
This lab is common for mechanical and automobile engineering students with facilities for the group of 30 students to carry out experiments independently. The lab is well-equipped and enables students to understand the fundamentals of Automotive Engineering which includes basic structure, body style, power plant and wheel & tyre assembly.Strength of Materials Lab
The laboratory is equipped with various equipment, which enables students to comprehend properties of different materials such as hardness, elasticity, ductility, different types of stresses etc. Major Equipment in the laboratory includes: Universal Testing Machine (60MT capacity), Rockwell cum Brinell Hardness Testing Machine, Impact Testing Machine, Torsion Testing Machine, etc.
Placement is the biggest strength of Mangalayatan University. A unique Corporate Resource Centre to facilitate excellent placements.
