Centre for Engineering Education Research (CEER)

Academic Autonomy granted to BVBCET in 2007 offered an opportunity to innovate and excel in Engineering Education. This also came with the responsibility of performing to the expectations of all the stake holders including the regulatory bodies. It was at this time that the leadership of the system invested in collaborations to elevate itself to the next level of performance. The first such collaboration which gave the sound foundation was with Indo US Collaboration for Engineering Education (IUCEE). The faculty leadership institutes (FLIs) organised by IUCEE in 2008 and 2009 gave the exposure to global best practices of Engineering Education leading to sprouting of innovations in teaching –learning space showing visible results. Encouraged by this, Centre for Engineering Education Research was established in 2010 to encourage innovation and research in Engineering Education.

Our Vision

To promote innovation and research in Engineering Education to bring about qualitative change in students’ learning experience.

Objectives

  • Empower faculty members with the best practices in curriculum design, teaching – learning and assessment through training, workshop and allied activities
  • Encouraging innovation in curriculum design, teaching – learning and assessment
  • Influence faculty mindsets to recognise the importance of research driven instructional practices
  • Design and offer innovative courses and programs
  • Identify and build strategic global partnerships and collaborations to elevate our research capabilities and those of the wider engineering education community
  • Conduct outreach activities like workshops, trainings and conferences.

CEER has engaged in research as a part of the Research for Undergraduates course.
