VIDEO ANNOUNCEMENT & EVENT FLYER FOR RKU
The Indo Universal Collaboration for Engineering Education (IUCEE) was established in 2007 with the vision of facilitating Transformations in Engineering Education through global collaborations. IUCEE offers a wide range of programs aimed at improving the quality and global relevance of engineering education in India, with the involvement of a large network of international faculty, students, institutions, and industry. It is sustained largely by a consortium of engineering educational institutions across India (www.iucee.com).
ABOUT RK UNIVERSITY
Established under the Gujarat Private Universities Act of 2009, RK University has consistently received recognition and accolades from renowned organizations such as Microsoft, Infosys, IUCEE, ISTE, TCS, DNA, Engineering Watch, and Wipro. RKU’s faculty members have secured a significant amount of extramural research funding from GUJCOST; an autonomous body functioning under the aegis of the Department of Science and Technology. The university plays a leadership role in the area of pedagogy and outcome-based instruction. Interactive learning is heavily encouraged across the university. The Assessment Advisory Council (AAC) recommends innovative assessment methods to fulfill the desired learning outcomes of various courses. The Center for Professional Development (CPD) at RK University recommends educational programs that contribute to the overall development of faculty members. RKU also conducts six-week-long programs to provide participants with a collaborative, immersive, and hands-on environment for exploring new ideas that would subsequently help them formulate new learning experiences. RKU’s leadership comprises researchers and academicians from renowned institutes of learning. Nobel Laureate Dr. Alan J. Heeger delivered a video speech during RK University’s First International Conference on Research & Entrepreneurship (ICRE 2016).
