FIVE PERTINENT POINTS FOR THE GAME – GIVE ME FIVE
1. Discipline of engineering must remain relevant and institutions are very dependent on decisions taken by students in their formative years.
2.The road you take today will determine your future not just for the next few years but perhaps for the rest of the century.
3.Institutions and their achievements, over several decades, have been shaped by the trajectory they took in their earliest days.
4.India has changed technology and the very discipline of engineering has evolved.
5. The best scientific universities and institutions of learning are not teaching shops or degree factories.
The game can move on to next level and add on 2 points
6. Increasingly, institutions are sources of innovation and incubation of technology and technology driven start ups.
7.The knowledge ecosystem of public investments in Science, academic institutions and universities, research laboratories, commercial applications and private enterprise has an almost magic potential.
VOCAB BAG TO ENHANCE YOUR VOCABULARY FROM THE ARTICLE
Step1 – Select 10 words from the article:

Step 2- Use Merriam Websters dictionary to learn the word
Discipline : /dis-ci-pline/
Learn the pronunciation

There is a real dearth of employability skills in many students today. Communication skills project a student’s personality in the real world. Students must learn the knack of interspersing strong technical knowledge with soft skills to emerge as a dynamic engineer.
Engineering students must understand that fluency in a language is directly the result of constant usage of the language. So speaking in English during class hours and break will facilitate the English skills in students.
This task is similar to MODEL UNITED NATIONS CONFERENCES WHICH ACT AS A CATALYST TO ENHANCE YOUNG STUDENTS’ JOB SKILLS TO TRANSFORM INTO GREGARIOUS PERSONALITIES.
Similarly, if engineering students do a thorough research of companies they want to join from the first year onwards, it will pave the way for them to reach their job destinations faster.
The task rules are as follows :
1.Students should be split up into groups
2.All groups will be assigned one reputed company or start ups
3.They have to do a complete survey of the company and present details in a grid.
4.With the points and targets to be achieved on the grid each student has to do a five minute presentation.
5.Interchange of ideas and plans will widen students’ perspectives about many companies.
