IIT Mandi: Gautam Mahajan to deliver course
Using Engineering to Create Value: Making Engineers more employable and
useful to industry
This is a one credit course to help students bundle what they have learnt in their
studies at IIT Mandi to create value for themselves, and their future employers. How
can they use this knowledge to stand out and make a difference in the corporate
world and to society? How do they use their engineering knowledge gainfully?
The course will define value and how to create it and give practical examples of
using engineering knowledge, of focusing in on the real and fundamental issues and
providing solutions to create value. The students’ awareness will be enhanced to
ready him for leaving IIT.
This course will equip students for the business and real world, and put together
what corporates require, and how the students can understand the work-world, and
create value, and how they can utilize their engineering skills usefully, and where to
turn for more information and knowledge. We would also use faculty members and
outsiders with their own experiences at entry level on expectations from companies
and how to handle them.
