Faculty development programs are conducted along with internship for participating students. IIST regularly conducts workshops by TCS and gets professional trainers to address students in its classrooms. TCS instructors deliver training in a lecture and classroom format as a demonstration with the opportunity for learners to practice utilizing electronic tools. IIST offers a unique advantage of a TCS certified program·
IIST is the nodal center for virtual lab. Virtual Labs is a project initiated by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, under the National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology. The project aims to provide remote-access to Laboratories in various disciplines of science and engineering for students at all levels from under-graduate to research
It also intends to develop a complete Learning Management System where the students can avail the various tools for learning, including additional web-resources, video-lectures, animated demonstrations and self-evaluation. There is also a component wherein costly equipment and resources are shared, that are otherwise available to only a limited number of users due to constraints on time and geographical distances. Seven IIT's (Delhi, Bombay, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras, Roorkee and Guwahati), IIIT Hyderabad, Amrita University, Dayalbagh University, NIT Karnataka, and College of Engineering, Pune, are the institutions participating in the project. The Project intends to cover physical sciences, chemical science and various branches of engineering like electronics and communications, computer science and engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, biotechnology engineering and civil engineering.
An initiative by IIT Bombay that aims to create the next generation of embedded systems engineers with a practical outlook to help provide practical solutions to some of the real world problems. It aims to spread education in embedded systems and Robotics. Also, helps in better performance at Robotics competitions such as the e-Yantra Robotics Competition with trainings done at IIST campus.
QEEE program uses real time and synchronous technology to allow for an integration of superior external scholastic inputs into current pedagogical practices. QEEE has got Live Classes wherein IIT faculty delivers live lecture classes to participating colleges. The schedule of lectures are sent to colleges and notifications are provided before start of each session. It also includes Course pack of supplement study material with lecture notes, live class videos, discussion forums, assessment and evaluation tools to serve as a reference material for QEEE courses. Live Labs are conducted to provide virtual hands-on experience to students on experiments undertaken remotely. It creates an opportunity to work on a real lab experiment tailored to suit their syllabus and curriculum. Bridge Programs are administered to bridge the gap between the initial skills of individuals and what they need to enter and succeed in post secondary education and career-path employment.·
The Spoken Tutorial project is an initiative of the ‘Talk to a Teacher’ activity of the National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (ICT), launched by the Ministry of Human Resources and Development, Government of India. Objective is to pass on the knowledge of technology and free and open source software (FOSS) to the millions in our countrymen who lack opportunities and/or access to learn any software.
