- DYPIU honoured with Most Emerging Higher Education Institute of the Year at the EdTech X Indian Education Awards 2021.
The D. Y. Patil International University, Akurdi, Pune (DYPIU) has begun operations as a State Private University, with the primary goal of marking a watershed moment in India's Higher Education history. It also aspires to become a global Private University by developing socially relevant and contemporary outcome-based programmes, conducting inter and intra disciplinary research in thrust areas, broadening the scope of research collaborations, and enhancing faculty and student exchange programmes around the world. It also seeks to provide an inspirational and experiential learning environment for its stakeholders by incorporating globalisation, employability, and value ruminating in all of its programmes, as a result of its acute focus on empowerment via education and academic excellence.
DYPIU adds another feather in its crown
At the recently held EdTech X Indian Education Awards 2021, DYPIU received the prestigious honour of Most Emerging Higher Education Institute of the Year. The 11th edition of Edtech brings together an incredible group of global educators and innovators to debate their perspectives on global leadership lessons learned and what Education & EdTech trends will emerge in the post-COVID-19 era. The workshops and panel discussions focused on predicting and meeting future demand for technology in education, as well as the rise of EdTech in India (and beyond) and the challenges that education entrepreneurs confront. How did some of the world's most prominent institutions make such a swift transition to the internet?
Prof Prabhat Rajan, Vice Chancellor, DYPIU received the prestigious award from Prof Anil D Sahasrabudhe, Chairman, AICTE on behalf of D Y Patil International University for being judged as the "Most Emerging Higher Education Institute of 2021". He congratulated the distinguished jury members and stated that they were able to make substantial changes in the way education is delivered across the country in just three years.
Prof Sahasrabudhe complimented him and mentioned that DYIPU is a partner in the AICTE IDEALab. Across the country, such labs are being constructed to encourage students to apply the fundamentals of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to improve hands-on experience, learning by doing, and even product visualisation. The IDEA Lab will make engineering graduates more imaginative and creative as a common facility embedded in the institution, in addition to providing basic training in 21st century skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, design thinking, collaboration, communication, and lifelong learning. This initiative can help students and staff “engage, explore, experience, express, and excel,” which is a need of new age learning. Such institutes receive 50 lakhs in funding from the AICTE, and they must raise another 50 lakhs from industry using their own resources. As a result, this is a challenging task that requires equal participation from the industry, the AICTE, and the institute. These labs must be open 24 /7, so that if a pupil has an interesting concept, he must be able to experiment.
