OVERVIEW As a part of ICISC, Dassault Indus Collaborative Learning and Innovation Programme is initiated in an association with Dassault Systems, to assist students improve their engineering skills and knowledge by working on projects, similar to actual industrial tasks using Dassault V6 as the learning platform. TRAINING TIME
- Project based
learning approach gives flexibility in learning modules, based on the aspects of a project. Three training timelines of 80, 120, and 160 hours are available. 80 hours includes development of a souvenir for Indus University and later focuses on adding dynamic behavior to the same. 120 hours programme is aimed to create an E-BAJA vehicle. 160 hours programme includes manufacturing and dynamic simulation aspects of the project. Ideas of students can be used in their own projects.
emphasizes on bringing out the creativity in students through project-based learning. Following the same, the teaching curriculum is designed to sharpen logical reasoning and critical thinking skills, to have an eye for detail, creativity and innovation, problem solving abilities along with technical expertise. Such kind of structured teachings enable students to apply principles of engineering in real life scenarios. The training structure is divided into three categories: 80 hours, 120 hours and 160 hours. In project-based learning students are taken through the modules in an iterative way through various projects of different levels. The students prepare a multidisciplinary team and then are exposed to environment similar to the industry. The number of modules covered depends on the lifecycle of the project and availability of students. The end of a cycle leads to next cycle with higher level complexities, bringing students new challenges to face and excel at. OBJECTIVES Provide project based learning to students by exposing them to various projects during graduation period. Enhance technical skills of students. Cultivate an environment identical to the real industry. Let students gradually confront challenges of moderate and high level/s in the field of engineering. Provide knowledge that enables students to invent in their relevant fields. Build a foundation for industry academia collaboration. Instill research based approach among students by encouraging invention and scholastic aptitude. The key learning objectives for 80 hours training schedule contains training in the following domains: Collaborative Design Platform 2D Designing 3D Shape Design Part Design Assembly Design Sheet metal Design Plastic part Design Validation of Assembly through dynamic simulations Structural Analysis of components to validate the design requirements For 120 hours the additional learning outcomes will include: Project Management Fundamentals Dynamic System Behavior Based Modeling Complex Structure Design Thermal and Frequency Analysis The 160 hours will again have additional exposure on: Digital Manufacturing Systems Engineering and Architecture Design Lean Manufacturing The key learning objectives however are not fixed; they can be shuffled to suit the project requirements. The amount of experience a student gains is based on the complexity of design challenges he faces. The learning material is available to enrolled students at the lab which allows them to explore capabilities of the software at their own will in an unrestricted manner. The students are allowed to experiment with all the modules as they like beyond the dedicated training duration. Project-based learning is not only aimed at imparting the knowledge of engineering design tools but also to give a practical experience often found lacking in largely theoretical engineering learning environments.
