La Fondation Dassault Systemes is running the ConnectNext Program to address Talent Readiness and Employability Challenges by Empowering Students to be Future Ready.
At the heart of this program we aim to strengthen Student Project Framework, with inputs and mentoring from Industry/Domain experts; so that students can apply their engineering knowledge-knowhow, extend it beyond text book learning and demonstrate their skills through the projects.
First facet of this program is about Guiding students to select Meaningful Engineering Projects. For this purpose La Fondation Dassault Systemes is running a Webinar Series for students and professors of engineering colleges, universities across India. This Webinar series will help students and professor to understand upcoming technologies, different industry verticals, and new domain areas from Industry Experts. In addition, relevant Industry Experts will share many innovative concepts and challenges they are addressing in their respective Industry verticals, domain or technologies. Such information and relevant project ideas will help professors to guide their students and help them to make them ready for Industries.
The main objective of our Webinar Series “Guiding students to select meaningful projects” is to help the Academia world to be aware of happenings in the Industry and capitalize this knowledge.
ConnectNext program's next facet is to define meaningful project ideas, provide real life problem statements for engineering students to work upon as projects. Along with Industry professionals, we appeal professors from engineering colleges and universities who are attending the Webinar Series sessions to explore the topics covered and come up with exciting project ideas.
We appeal professors to nominate such project ideas using this Project Idea Submission Link.
We at La Fondation, with the help of Industry experts, will review those ideas and qualify impactful project ideas for National Level Projects Library. This National Level Project Library will be published to all Engineering Colleges across India for students to select appropriate project ideas based on their passion and areas of interest. This way we will help students to work on projects, which are inspired from inputs provided by industry and domain experts, upcoming technologies, emerging engineering domains through which they get an opportunity to be "Industry ready".
In addition, with this initiative we would like to appeal Professors to know more about industries and their requirements, so that they can guide students to explore these new technologies and prepare them for industries.
Professors or Industry Professionals can submit their project ideas on our Nomination Link.
After the evaluation process, selected project ideas will be published on a National pool of Projects Library. At all stages of the project idea submission, participants will get informed by emails for next steps in the contest.
All professors are recommended to take advantage of this opportunity, explore more opportunities for their students, and make them Industry Ready and Future Ready.
Nominate your project idea here.
We appeal all professors participating in the webinar series to join this interesting Inspired Project ideas contest and be visible at National level.
