Dr. V.K. Rattan talked about the new education policy in India by the government of India which is based on making the student learn skills-based education and so we have to promote this education so that the students learn the practical things and then they go to industry and should be industry-ready. The three things that should promote are a) Industry, b) Education, c) Government/Management. Dr. Abhay Kumar further stated that e-mobility is the future, in many countries the future has already arrived and the industry-academia happen together to bring about those skills inculcate & integrate those skills into the students, and so many topics and the subject is to be covered under particular EV engineering with hands-on training.

Dr. Rana Singh stated that the collaborative framework will help us in terms of evolving the outcome base curriculum which will enable the young students to focus on learning. Dr. Vikas Dhawan further adds that the EV required basic skills

Knowledge of Mechanical and electrical engineering as well as AI, we should have the vision of driverless cars in the future and we should have the tie-up with industries.

Finally, the program sums up all the discussed topics and their applicability in the coming future concerning the trends in EV industries.

ISIEINDIA successfully organized Day 4 of the National Summit on Skill Based Education.

Imperial Society of Innovative Engineers (ISIE INDIA) has successfully organized the National Summit in Skill Based Education - Day 4 on “What infrastructural changes are required to skill the students in EV” Co-organized by Automotive Skill Development Council(ASDC), in association with SMEV, MG Motors India, Hero Electric, ANSYS Inc. and Speedways Electric.

The National Summit on Skill Based Education day 4 was started with a Keynote Speech by Mr. Ashutosh Kumar (EV Design Engineer, ISIEINDIA) on the requirement of a collaborative program that will train the students with hands-on training and make them industry-ready as per the requirements. He also added different initiatives taken by ISIEINDIA such as programs to ensure the student's skill development.

Followed by Experts Opinion from the Panellist Dr. Gopinath Chintala (Registrar, Centurion University of Technology and Management), Prof. (Dr.) Rajeev Upadhyay (Director, Hindustan College of Science & Technology), Dr. Suthanthira Vanitha N. (Dean - Quality Assurance, Muthayammal Engineering College), Dr. Shahnaj Ayub (Dean – Research & Development, Bundelkhand Institute of Engineering & Technology), Mr. Bikram Pal Singh (Deputy Dean - Training and Placement, Global Group of Institutes) & Dr. T. Manigandan (Principal, PA College of Engineering)

After the expert's opinion, there was a panel discussion among the panelist on “What infrastructural changes are required to skill the students in EV” which was moderated by Dr. Ashwini Kumar Sharma (Dean – Engineering, Adamas University)

Dr. Gopinath Chintala reminded us that we are the pioneer in this field of skill-based education. We just need to implement skill-based learning in the infrastructure with hands-on training. With this Prof. (Dr.) Rajeev Upadhyay added that on the receiving end there are so many opportunities available with the affiliated colleges so on this forum as an organizational effort is very good but in this electrical vehicle part how we can make this technology a disruptive technology which is a challenge

Dr. Suthanthira Vanitha N stated about the initiatives by ISIEINDIA stating the signing of an MoU with the reputed industry for enhancing the collaborative activities to established COE to more than 100 institutions all over the India Dr. Shahnaj Ayub It is a great initiative from ISIE to a new era which is in the align with the implementation of national education policy 2020. In outcome-based education the skill-based education or skill-based laboratory. The curriculum is more important and when we talk about the various levels of education or various levels of learning. ISIEINDIA is doing skill-based education and its efforts are completely aligned with this particular level.

Mr. Bikram Pal Singh puts his view on the relevance of skill-based education in the present scenario. It was a time when the Indian economy opened to outside the world through liberation and globalization since then it created a great demand for our individuals especially our students to acquire requisites skills as per the available employment job opportunity. So this is that time to make the education system make our upcoming generation future-ready and employment-oriented. Dr. T. Manigandan further stated that implementing the skill-based education is very difficult unless you put more MoU and experts from industry purpose to come over to the institute that means the institute and industry partnership should be encouraged and because of this partnership only we can do a lot of things for the benefit of the student and especially the EV technology.

The Program sums up by the need for change in infrastructure to make the students industry-ready with the required set of skills and with industry requirements.
