The focus of Jesuit education is not mere imparting information but holistic formation of the individuals culminating in leadership with social responsibility. LICET assumes that each student is a potential leader who could be shaped up.
The following are the five pillars of LICET methodology in moulding and forming the students:
i) LICET prepares the students as per the prescribed syllabi of the affiliating Anna University. But the academic system followed at LICET is a hybrid and an enhanced one, that is, learning in the classroom combined with hands-on experience both in the lab and in the industries. The academic excellence would get ever better. Two of LICET students, David Jose and Joe Mike Prakash, of the first batch, secured Anna University ranks.
ii) LICET students excel in professionalism: : Through collaboration with the industries and exposure to project management as well as companies, LICET students are helped to reduce the skill-gap between academic information and professional expertise. We gratefully acknowledge the interest and efforts of many industries to accompany our students during the in-plant training and project work in the industry. The Placement Cell is constantly working on effective placement of our students.
Through system discovery program, the students are introduced to the inside-story of gadgets, starting from household gadgets, through laptops, to two-wheelers, auto-rickshaws, automobiles etc. They are trained not only to dismantle the instrument and the gadgets but also to study the function of each component and finally to put back the components in place. In this adventure, both the faculty as well as experts from workshops assist our students.
Already two of our students have become entrepreneurs: Deepak John has started his company Pupa Clic. Venkatesh Sai has co-promoted Sree Sai Aero Tech Innovation, which has been acknowledged to be among the top 15 companies in India by CNBC, a National Business Channel; and has won award in a National Level Competition organized by Confederation of Indian Industries (CII). Four of our students have applied for patents for their discovery. A few have spread wings to continue with their higher studies all over the world: 7 in ICAM (France), two in Fairfield University (USA), two in Newcastle University (UK), one in St Joseph’s University (USA), and one in Australia
iii. Through personality development, our students are formed as leaders by gaining insight, foresight, and far-sight in Time-Management and Stress-Management, Motivation and Goal-Setting, Value-based outlook of life, Effective Communication and Team-Building etc. Foundation Courses bring out the best from each student to emerge as a leader of technology.
