Engineering is an applied science. What is learnt in schools and colleges is applied in industry, but there is always a gap between learning and practice, as industrial practices require some additional inputs. To help students acquire these additional competencies and skills, Siddaganga Institute of Technology, Tumkur rightly thought of establishing an Industrial Competency Laboratory (ICL), a unique and distinct facility for imparting quality technical education.
About the ICL
ICL was established in the year 2002. Since then there has been an ongoing effort to create and impart skills to reorient the students in software development and Industry methodologies. Simultaneously it also aims at providing an industrial environment in the academic institutions by imparting competencies and best practices relevent to the industry. Thus, it is an overall endeavor to empower students to be productive from the beginning of their career.
Aims and objectives of ICL
- Adoption of software development life cycle.
- Adoption of best practices and industry standards.
- Estimated and scheduled projects.
- Building customer awareness.
- Emphasis on system architectures, designs and documents.
- Identifying and driving in house projects.
- Identifying projects spanning over different domains.
- Usage of current technologies and tools.
- Review process.
- Monitor student activities.
The course content consists of system analysis and design, knowledge of basic system and application software, tools for development of applications and their utilities in various situations oriented to fulfill the needs of the client. It contains:
- OOP Concepts
- RDBMS Concepts
- Software Engineering
- Web Design
- Java Scripts
- Struts Framework
- Spring Framework
- Dojo, JQuery, JSON
- Web Services (SOAP and REST)
Course Duration and Criteria
The Students are normally drawn from computer Science, MCA, Information Science and Engineering, Electronics and Comminication Engineering, Electrical and Electronics and Instrumentation Technology branches. However, students from other branches and streams are also admitted (preferably) with strong computer knowledge). The basic knowledge of C or C++ or Java or VB and VC++ would be necessary.
The students who have obtained a minimum of 60% in aggregate from all semesters are eligible for admission at the end of VI Semester (BE) and IV (MCA), so that, at the completion of their course, they will be empowered with skills to get suitably placed.
The course duration is one year with inputs ranging from 230-250 hours. The first six months of 200 hours, constitute basic training in tools, project orientation and system development. The next six months with 350 hours of enhanced training, is, meant for project development, its execution and successful implemenation.
Infrastructure and Facilities
ICL is adequately equipped with aims and objectives to fulfill and satisfactorilly carry out the training activities as per the aims and objectives mentioned above.
