SUPRA 2016 is a competition organized by the Society of Automotive Engineering (SAE) India for the undergraduates to build and race student built cars. SUPRA is widely known as the student version of Formula One Race. The objective of the competition is for students to design and fabricate a 600 cc (max) concept race car worthy of mass-production by a hypothetical manufacturing firm. The teams are evaluated first on the car’s dynamic performance in several grueling tests. They must also present a business strategy with cost analysis and marketing plans to “sell” the concept to a judging panel of hypothetical manufacturers.

MBA Faculties attend FDP at IIMB

Dr. Vishal Samartha, Mr. Abhaya Kumar, Mr. Girish M and Ms. Sushma V, faculty members of the Department of Business Administration attended a one-day Faculty Development Programme on “Blended MOOCs” at the IIMB campus. This programme made them well acquainted with MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) and had maximum learning with the IIMB faculties on aspects related to people management, the banking & financial markets and the international business environment & global strategies.

The education sector is due for a major makeover; MOOCs play a key role in matching the pace at which the education sector is growing. This FDP mainly focused on blending classroom teaching with MOOCs which can add great value and learning experience for the students. MOOCs include imparting education through videos, reading materials, animation, exercises, games, case studies, etc. and it works on the EDX platform. Technology will not take away teachers’ jobs but will alter them in certain ways. Numerous free courses are available on MOOCs but nominal amounts are charged for certification.
