National Institute of Technology Trichy launched ‘Business and Entrepreneurship for Engineers (BEE)’- an experiential and flipped classroom course – designed and delivered by NIT-T alumni. The new course, for final year undergraduate students, is fully formulated and conceptualized by a team of 1984 batch Regional Engineering College (REC)-Trichy (now NIT-Trichy) alumni.

“This course is highly relevant in today’s business context as the 21st-century economy is shaped by startup community,” said Ravi Vishwanathan, chief Marketing officer, TCS (alumnus 1981). Students will be exposed to the different concepts of management – finance, legal, operations, marketing, economics and human resource management. Classroom session is to be followed by Out of Building (OoB) experiential learning, followed by project evaluation by industry experts and venture capitalists.
