ACE ENGLISH AT YOUR PACE

If impeccable Grammar and the nuances of the English language intimidates you then there are ways to enhance English skills with effortless ease.

Tame English with a game – ” Give Me Five”

Step 1- Select an article from an English newspaper which evinces your interest.

Step 3 – Underline difficult words, learn their usage and learn to speak the five points with impeccable English

SAMPLE FROM NEWSPAPER

FROM THE INDIAN EXPRESS DATED 6 AUGUST ’18

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:

Engineering, discipline, formative, shaped, trajectory, evolved, innovation, incubation, start ups, potential

Step 2- Use Merriam Websters dictionary to learn the word

Eg

Discipline : /dis-ci-pline/

Learn the pronunciation

Learn the meaning – control gained by enforcing obedience and order

Learn the uasge – The troops were praised for their dedication and discipline.

TASK FOR ENGINEERING STUDENTS

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.

  TASK

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.

Tasks for Engineering students to be continued.

Sona signed an MoU with Nottingham Trent University, UK.

Academic Mobility and Research opportunities to be explored in the following areas:

  • NTU’s Advanced Textiles Research Group (Professor Tilak Dias) and SONAReach Research centre and Department of Fashion Technology
  • NTU’s Department of Architecture Design and Built Environment and SCT’s Department of Civil Engineering (Dr Amrit Sagoo, Head of Department, Construction Management and Quantity Surveying)

Student Mobility

  •  In the first instance, short-term student mobility opportunities to be explored through semester abroad and NTU’s Global Summer School. A progression agreement where SCT students receive Scholarships to pursue their Masters at NTU, once a curriculum mapping exercise is undertaken.

Joint / Collaborative Projects and Publications

Faculty visits for joint teaching

Sona signed an MoU with Titan Company Limited, Hosur

Tile of the Project:To establish an undercoat of composite Nickel plating by Wet plating process on Brass case (Brass with or without lead content) which will improve the corrosion resistance property of Ion Plated Gold, Rose Gold and Steel look cases. The plated Brass case with different colors should pass the Corrosion and Adhesion test as per the ISO 3260 test standards.
Scope of the Project: Improve corrosion resistance property through pulse electrodeposition of Ni-nano composite plating for Gold, rose Gold and Steel look plated Brass cases.
Methodology: To perform pulse plating using Ni-nano composite coatings on Brass case which  are used as anode material in the plating bath.
