Coming up: Benchmarking system for GTU Affiliated Colleges & Award to best Colleges


IDP/UDP/Student Project work, Start-up & Problem Solving to fetch points

Ahmedabad: Gujarat Technological University (GTU) is planning to bring outcome-based benchmarking system for affiliated colleges and award for best colleges. Social or Industrial Problem Solving, Start-ups, innovation etc. will bring required points in the upcoming system.

Under the guidance of Prof. (Dr) Navin Sheth, Vice Chancellor, GTU has prepared the unique scheme.  Each college can make a report and submit with necessary support proofs for the claims made about efforts of respective college on or before 15th July 2017. An Expert committee at University level will go through all such reports and benchmark the best colleges/institutes/campuses and appreciate them with special award in a suitable occasion at state level. The report which colleges will submit should be based on the efforts undertaken for IDP/UDP/Student Project work for the academic year 2016-17. Later on every academic year such award will be given away after benchmarking each cycle of efforts in this field to acknowledge good efforts at colleges and benchmark efforts at state level involving similar indicators and efforts, Bipin J. Bhatt, Registrar of GTU said.

Best performing campuses/colleges will also be given additional support from GTU Innovation Council to achieve concrete results in this direction. Not necessarily every college will score high under every indicator to start with, but the intent of this initiative is to also help in giving a direction to innovation ecosystem efforts at every campus through policy and action support so that in days to come each of the GTU affiliated campus will become hub of creativity, innovation and enterprises through strategic interventions, Hiranmay Mahanta, Director of GTU Innovation Council said.

Collaboration: Institute doing formal collaboration with (Industry clusters for Industrial Shodh Yatra, Industry for supporting IDP/UDP, Designers/fabricators/Experts apart from academia for Proof of concept design, prototyping support, R&D organisation/testing center etc for further support to convert student projects to innovative solutions etc.)
Post final year project examination support System creation by institute to take forward selected projects/IDP/UDP/proposed solutions to next stage so that few projects reach to impact stage, help in IPR Protection of novel works, Product design support for potential projects etc.  Colleges should share a report on what they are doing to achieve the mentioned if they claim in this category.


સ્ટાર્ટ અપ અને ઈનોવેશન સહિતની ઉત્કૃષ્ટ કામગીરી કરતી સંસ્થાઓને જીટીયુ શ્રેષ્ઠ કૉલેજનો એવોર્ડ આપશે

જીટીયુમાં પહેલીવાર કૉલેજોની શૈક્ષણિક અને અન્ય કામગીરી મૂલ્યાંકનની વ્યવસ્થા ઘડાશેઃ ઉદ્યોગજગત અને સમાજની સમસ્યાઓને હલ કરનાર કૉલેજોને વિશેષ રેંકીંગ પ્રાપ્ત થશે

અમદાવાદઃ ગુજરાત ટેકનોલોજીકલ યુનિવર્સિટી (જીટીયુ) સૌપ્રથમવાર કૉલેજોની શૈક્ષણિક અને અન્ય કામગીરીની મૂલ્યાંકન વ્યવસ્થા નક્કી કરી રહી છે, જેના ભાગરૂપે શૈક્ષણિક કાર્ય ઉપરાંત સ્ટાર્ટ અપ અને ઈનોવેશન સહિતની તમામ પ્રકારની ઉત્કૃષ્ટ કામગીરી બજાવનાર સંસ્થાઓને શ્રેષ્ઠ કૉલેજોનો એવોર્ડ પણ આપવામાં આવશે.

જીટીયુના વાઈસ ચાન્સેલર પ્રો. (ડૉ) નવીન શેઠના માર્ગદર્શન હેઠળ બેન્ચમાર્કીંગની યોજના ઘડવામાં આવી રહી છે. જેમાં વિવિધ પ્રકારના પ્રમાણના આધારે કૉલેજોની કામગીરીને મૂલવવામાં આવશે. જે કૉલેજોએ સામાજીક સમસ્યાઓ હલ કરવાની બાબતમાં મહત્ત્વની કામગીરી બજાવી હોય કે સામાજીક અસર ઊભી થઈ હોય એવી વિશિષ્ટ કામગીરી બજાવી હોય તેના ખાસ પોઈન્ટ મળશે. તે ઉપરાંત ઉદ્યોગજગતમાં કોઈ સમસ્યા હલ કરી હોય તો તેના પણ વધારાના પોઈન્ટ કૉલેજને પ્રાપ્ત થશે. અલબત્ત તેના માટે કૉલેજે ઉદ્યોગની કઈ સમસ્યા દૂર કરી તેનો પુરાવો આપવાનો રહેશે, એમ જીટીયુના રજીસ્ટ્રાર બિપીન જે. ભટ્ટે જણાવ્યું હતું.
