Electronics Engineering, Research-Informed Teaching, Diversity and Inclusion


In the fast-growing era of Engineering and Technology, in particular, the Electronics Engineering modules/subjects have become a challenging area nowadays to educate the students in this COVID- 19 scenario. This present research proposes a methodology to help the students improve their learning by including practical laboratory and research. This proposed methodology will assist students in developing creative concepts and electronic devices for advanced device applications related to Electronics Engineering. The main emphasis is Research Informed Teaching (RIT) and learning with design projects centered on the Bachelors, Masters, and Doctorate students. In addition, this work discusses the research projects, teaching methodology, etc., which can be helpful for academicians and students.
