Being distinct from the crowd through quality education and industry-ready skills has been the core philosophy of Shivalik. Shivalik has been a game-changer since it was founded. Its vision and mission make it an ideal choice for an engineering aspirant with different curriculums that make it different from other engineering colleges. The world is changing at an unprecedented pace today, thanks to the unseen challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic. Industries are redefining their modus operandi; offices are shutting down or becoming partially operational; homes are getting designed to incorporate the work-from-home culture and its demands; manufacturing is now engineering new ways to take into account all the health advisories the novel coronavirus has brought with it.
In such circumstances, staying abreast of the paradigm shifts in any industry is paramount. Skipping even a tiny detail could lead to a significant loss – both productivity and financially. The role of engineers has both changed and is still somewhat the same. It has expanded to incorporate other traditional roles and functions like designing, operational management, and even accounting-like resources. Having a strong industry connection and becoming prepared for this new change has never been felt so strongly than today. Thanks to its proactive approach, the Shivalik college of engineering has been championing industry alliances for all its students, since the pre-covid times and hence, today is one of the leading colleges for engineering in the country with ties to top tier corporations around the world.
Shivalik has established unique partnerships and collaborations beyond the usual academic-industry alliances to offer a distinct advantage to students. The curriculum is co-designed that the methods are jointly identified and incorporated to improve the existing curriculum, co-developed and new and advanced modules are added to it every semester, co-deliberation of the subject matter and at Shivalik, we have experts from the industry that partners us in doing so, the deliver industry-ready modules are also used for the students.
The patch-up of the college with private firms helps over 2,000 enrolled students in benefitting from its exposure to and application of the most in-demand skills as well as emerging tech like AI, IoT, Blockchain, amongst others.
