Where the Critical Thinking Unfolds


From early days, the term scientific breakthrough is considered as the success of 'Scientists,' without giving any importance to engineers who have practically implemented the novel ideas. There are not many who have been left behind without getting a place in the list of recognition. Even though, these engineers possessed a lot of potentials, their contributions in bits and pieces were restrained. As the constructivist pedagogy started gaining prominence, we have many unleashing their ideas in every nook and corner. K. NeelaMarthandan, Chairman, Rohini College of Engineering and Technology (RCET) who have adopted this strategy long back is now feeling proud of advancing the knowledge base of the students.

A word of appreciation is always the right reward for the students and RCET has always been the best in doing this.



Considering the history of RCET since its establishment in 2009, the college has filtered itself from the count of numerous engineering institutes through its emphasis on transformational learning. Though, it looks like flattering, that is not the case as the college possesses stories in this regard. Recently, the final year Mechanical and Electrical Engineering students jointly worked on a world level project in collaboration with the National Institute Project. The project was in collaboration with the National Institute of Wind Energy (NIWE) and supported by the KST wind engineering India Ltd, under the authority of the ministry of Renewable energy Govt of India. NeelaMarthandan proudly claims, "Through this project, the students have generated electricity from hybrid solar wind power plant for meeting the power needs of the college. 27 foreign scientists have visited our college to witness our student's effort."

A word of appreciation is always the right reward for the students and RCET has always been the best in doing this. The first and the foremost thing done in this regard is the provision of relevant platforms for the students to work on. TARCET (Technical Association of Rohini College of Engineering and Technology) helps students to attend national and international level seminars, conferences and to conduct various researches under the guidance of renowned companies and Scientists. "The role of the faculties at most places are restricted to only teaching, but in Rohini, the role is expanded to carry out research activities in the college and provide an opportunity for the students to involve in such research activities," opines NeelaMarthandan. This research-informed, practice-oriented program explores the students to current issues related to curriculum and pedagogy with a special focus on recent development in educational technologies.
