Higher education institutions including universities are finding more challenges due to enhanced competitions worldwide. BESTIU is no exception. Innovations in higher education model are finding importance than ever before due to enhanced higher education institutions and the advancement in technology adopted mass education opportunities. After privatization of higher education, there is an enhanced competition between universities to attract students globally. Universities are competing with each other in terms of their physical and intellectual assets. We believe that to stay ahead we need to develop the six essential infrastructures for accelerated growth as world-class university. These include: (1) Physical infrastructure, (2) Digital infrastructure, (3) Innovative academic & training Infrastructure for confidence building, (4) Intellectual property infrastructure, (5) Emotional infrastructure, and (6) Networked infrastructure. We focus on these infrastructures along with their essential objectives, components, and the procedure of developing them to the optimum level.
Our University has individual and well equipped smart classroom for each department. The smart classroom helps to renovate the traditional education system into modernized one. It provides eminence education to students through better concept formation, concept elaboration, improvement in reading skills and academic attainment. Our classrooms are SMART CLASSES which are fully equipped to provide faculty with presentation requirements, from audio and video projection to audio and video capture. Extensive use of ICT tools is encouraged.
The multimedia development studio provides students and faculty with facilities that are set up for a wide variety of media production, including audio and video editing, production, web development, and other applications that are needed for advanced media visual audio projects. They help in conducting video-conferences. University invites several eminent International / National guest speakers virtually from different fields of study who will hold a class session remotely via a video-conference.
We provide complete solutions, cutting edge technology, software, tools, training material and FDP for developing next generation innovation centres. These centres enable university in developing creative leaders, innovation champions, breakthrough innovations and start-ups. Our labs provide conducive learning environments for students to work individually or collaboratively on entrepreneurial, STEM, STEAM, and Design Thinking projects. We also provide programs and pedagogy that together with the new learning environment develop a culture of self-directed learners. It is a serendipitous collision of thoughts, ideas with a learning environment for all departments. Our labs are supervised by guides and trainers who help hone student skill sets in design thinking concepts and innovation principles.
We have the latest science lab supplies and equipment to make science interesting and effective for students and to encourage them to make significant contributions in the field of physics, biology, chemistry, and other streams of science later in life. We offer several laboratories for various disciplines offered at BESTIU. The labs are program specific and offer hands-on experience for students to ideate, innovate and practice. Trainers in each lab ensure that students are well guided and oriented with the equipment’s, experiments and fulfil lab work criteria as per the curriculum design.
We believe that students develop a love for books from an early age. Our collection of books is continually re-stocked with the latest bestsellers for every age group. Along with English books, we also have reference material. Students have access to a well-stocked library which makes it a lot easier to complete their assignments and get some quiet study done between classes. BESTIU houses faculty-specific libraries or subject-specific libraries. Most facilities also stock plenty of fiction, magazines and even DVDs, and allow personal internet use. Staffs are hands on to answer any questions or help locate resources and run regular sessions to assist students to develop information research skills. Computers in the lab and classroom provide access to the Internet, Library catalogue and databases with hundreds of thousands of articles, thousands of eBooks and the extensive COM Library website designed to help users find the information they need.
