IUCEE Mission NEP 2020

This initiative was started by Indo Universal Collaboration for Engineering Education (IUCEE) with 14 of its institutes in which RIT, Rajaramnagar is the one of them. The motive behind this program is to address the goals of the New Education Policy(NEP) which calls for graduates to be well-rounded, multidisciplinary and creative with ethical values. They must possess cognitive and professional skills and be innovative and entrepreneurial, thereby contributing to a growing economy and a sustainable world.

The Goal of “IUCEE Mission NEP” is to change “How We Teach” in order to address the NEP goals. The initial focus of this mission is on First Year (FY) Students with one pilot batch of FY students from all disciplines.
