Project Drona, Mentoring with the industry experts, Phase 2

Project Drona, first of its kind faculty development & enrichment program.
Project Drona is a social program that encourages IT/CS faculty in the state of Telangana to embark on the journey of learning emerging technologies in a contemporary way. The first cohort of learners have completed the 1st phase of self learning & task oriented problem solving. The 2nd phase of Project Drona is Mentoring.

The mentors are industry technology specialists. We have a pool of Mentors who have gone out of the way to contribute to Project Drona, a social cause.

The mentors will be spending exclusive one X one time with the Dronas. They will be evaluating the tasks done by Drona’s as a part of experiential learning. During the course of mentoring, they will discuss;

  • industry perspective of analysing a problem
  • role of multiple stakeholders in problem solving
  • working towards an optimal solution

The expected outcome of the interaction is to give a sense of imparting industry-oriented education to students.
The concluding phase of the first cohort is an “Immersive Experience” at IT organization.
We had a fleet of Incredible mentors who joined the social cause to mentor.
We thank & appreciate the industry Mentors who took time to mentor the Dronas, faculty.
