Government Policies and Vision: A Parameter for Choosing Career Option

There are total 3 stages where a student (not parents) is given option to choose his own career path.  At stage one, when he enters in the higher secondary education from secondary. He dreams something and accordingly he selects a broad area such as Science (Math or Bio), Commerce or Arts. Second stage comes after passing Sr. Secondary exam which is the key stage where he selects a very specific area for under graduation. Third stage comes after under gradation where students decide for their future strategy. If we see carefully these stages, the students are provided reasonable guidance by parents in selecting the broad area at 11th standard. However, students are most confused after passing out 10+2 exams due to different advices, insecurity, and pressure of parents’ ambitions and most importantly due to influence of friends’ decision. Third stage is full of clarity with freedom for students to finalize their career.

As per the study done by Career360, More than one crore students appear for their 10+2 examination each year across India. Of these, just over 15 per cent get the opportunity to go for higher studies and their choices have been uniform from time immemorial. The students are not aware of several career options they have. Parents play a very important role in decision making at this time. Now, what can be methodology to select the right career option? Parents first need to assess their ward’s interest area. One study that the parents only can do is to search career by looking into the Government’s policies and vision of coming 2-4 years. These visions show the growth direction of specific areas.

How to make classes more interesting

Sometimes, it is observe that many students take a lot more interest in certain engineering courses than others. There are courses that students want to learn, sessions are well attended. Student performance in these classes is often reflected in their grades. On the other hand, there are classes in which students enroll only because those classes are required for the degree they are pursuing. Those classes usually do not fill up, students often skip sessions, and the poor performance is reflected in the grades.

So, the author tells how to make such classes so appealing to generate the student interest. In the best university in Jaipur, JKLU, an engineering class can be made interesting and enjoyable by engaging students in activities that are required in an active class.

Role of Laboratory Practice in Engineering Education

I hear and I forget;

I see and I remember;

I do and I understand.

                                                            Chinese proverb

Engineering education is incomplete without laboratory practice. The overall goal of engineering education is to prepare students to practice engineering and in particular to deal with the nature of problems faced by the society. The laboratory practice has been an important part of professional and engineering undergraduate education; the laboratory is an ideal place for active learning. Students learn in a real world environment, function as team members, discuss the planning of experiments, and share ideas about the analysis and interpretation of data. Most engineering instruction took place in the laboratory and it demands the active use of knowledge and skill.

For the student the objective of engineering laboratory is to “practice by doing” and the laboratory courses help them to gain insight and understanding of the real world which they learn in their theory courses and the ideas for innovations. Now there is shift from the text book learning to the learning by observation and doing. Students have to design, analyze, and build their own creation. The emphasis on laboratories has increased many folds over the years. Now attention has been paid to laboratory courses in the curriculum and teaching methods. Continue reading

Fault Current Limiter in Indian Power Sector Perspective

In the restructured environment, electrical utilities are using distributed generation sources and energy-efficient technologies to meet power shortage / power quality issues, which raised the fault level and power surges. The fault current level in many places may often exceed from their withstanding capacity of present infrastructure. Due to poor financial viability, Indian electrical utilities are interested in avoiding up gradation of existing networks with enhancement of network flexibility, sustainability and reliability. Therefore, it is needed to control fault currents to a level at which conventional protection equipment can operate safely with the consideration of financial burden on electric utilities. Looking to the Indian power sector, the fault current limiter (FCL) is a promising option to enhance the useful life of the equipment, even though exceed from their withstands capability. This blog is aimed at describing how the researcher and Best universities in Jaipur like JK Lakshmipat University can support utility engineers for the FCL application.

FCL is adaptable to electrical utility constraints such as location choice, modularity and space availability. Under normal operation, these devices have a negligible impedance until a fault event occurs. They are of two types: Superconducting fault current limiter (SFCL) and solid-state fault current limiter (SSFCL). SFCL uses superconducting based material to limit fault current while SSFCL controls the same by using high-speed solid-state switching devices. On the basis of fault current limiting capacity, restoration time and voltage sag mitigation parameter, it is observed that the solid-state fault current limiter is more efficient than the solid-state fault current limiter. The Key benefits of fault current limiter are: Continue reading

Selection Criteria of Engineering College

After passing 10+2 exams, most confusing task for a student and their parents is to choose college and then branch, especially when they have to choose an engineering college. Everyone wants to take admission in the best engineering college but it is not easy to define best college. Normally people judge the college by its ranking in the media or in the newspapers, placement statics, etc. These ranking are based on the data provided by the institution itself and can vary with the reality. Also the ranking is of institution, not the program. Most of the people don’t understand the placement statics shown by the colleges. The only focus is on the highest package offered (even it was offered to single student).

Another confusion is to choose the program and branch. Students wants to take admission in some other branch or program and parents wants some other. The reason of this confusion is the placement statics of the influence of known or relatives. Continue reading
