Department Programme is autonomous programme and in true sense, we are taking advantage of autonomy. Autonomy gives freedom to design the curriculum. While designing the curriculum, an enough care is taken to ensure that it is as per the need of today and futuristicmarket point of view. The curriculum is designed at par with the need of industry. The industry inputs are taken into consideration in each and every course. The Curriculum has features like Industry connect, research associations, semester long internship, live industry problem solving, electives, open elective to support interdisciplinary approach.
The current semester 2020-21 will be in online mode due to COVID-19 pandemic situation. We too have experience the shifting from regular classroom teaching towards virtual kind of online teaching, but for us at VIIT, it was smooth transition as partially during our content delivery we adapted flipped classroom, other teaching pedagogy and online assessment tools.
We will resume with our regular on campus teaching as soon as it is been notified by the Government of Maharashtra, adopted by SPPU and then again adopted by our institute.
