  • Philosophy

UITS is more of a “learning institution” than a mere “teaching institution”.  It is not a “teaching shop”; obviously the focus is more on knowledge than mere skills.  The faculty are individuals who are deep researchers qualified to write and critique contemporary textbooks in the area they reach; obviously they do not teach to a “fixed syllabus”.  They “design” the courses taking into account current trends and the student background so as to blend what is collectively taught across different courses into a cohesive body of knowledge that prepares the students not just for today but to take on the developments that are likely to take place years ahead.  What is laid in the courses is a solid foundation that prepares the individual student to pursue academic or industrial career with rigor and innovation.  The lectures are supplemented by several Lab sessions, Tutorials and self-reading (both individually and in groups) as well as projects.  It is not sufficient to pick up what is taught in the class or written in the textbooks; it is important to understand, assimilate and demonstrate the individual and collective ability to apply the knowledge to a research/application environment.  This is what sets apart UITS from the rest of the institutions.
