EPICS integrated into B.Tech curriculum

The National Institute of Technology (NIT) Warangal has introduced Engineering Projects in Community Service (EPICS) into the B. Tech curriculum from the academic year 2014-15.

Director T. Srinivasa Rao said that as part of the initiative, student teams from III B.Tech would identify a problem faced by the community, which requires technological solutions, and work towards designing a solution to solve the problem. These student teams would be interdisciplinary in nature. The EPICS initiative at NIT Warangal is being mentored by William Oakes of Purdue University. As part of the ongoing collaboration, Prof. William Oakes visited NIT Warangal on Thursday.
