Institute of Engineering & Management practises Outcome Based Education (OBE) for all existing programs. According to Washinton Accord, AICTE and NBA all courses have pre-defined 4 Course Outcomes (CO) and 12 Program Outcomes (PO) leading to achieve the Program Specific Outcomes (PSO), Graduate Attributes (GA) and subsequently the attainment of Program Educational Objectives (PEO). Syllabus indicates Pos and COs and their mapping. This enables both students and faculty members to understand the nuances of OBE. Lesson Plan prepared by the faculty also reflects the same.

Final year projects can be done entirely in the industry under the joint supervision of industrial personnel and faculty. To remove language barrier, foreign language courses like French or Chinese are taught. Curriculum is upgraded quarterly so that latest technological advances are incorporated. To popularise the coding culture hackathons and coding competitions are organised. Conferences, tech fests, model making competitions are organised to enhance hands on learning.

20.Distance education/online education:

The possibility of Online/ Distance degree/diploma courses may be planned by the institute in near future.

The digital library of the college provides lectures of IIT professors and reputed industries through NPTEL, Coursera, LinkedIN, edX.

In addition to regular physical classes, YouTube lectures by faculties are there to encourage learning in blended mode.

Besides that, they can access online education through lectures from IEMlearning which is IEM’s own online teaching-learning platform.

The institute accepts online credits from NPTEL/Swayam which helps the students to earn B.Tech. Degree with honors (for completing atleast 20 credits from these courses).

The institute has a MOU with Coursera and LinkedIn which facilitates the students to do several online courses/professional certifications from reputed institutes/organizations around the globe.
