ComedKares is a joint initiative between ERA Foundation and COMEDK (Consortium of Medical, Engineering and Dental Colleges of Karnataka) that gives engineering students a stateof-the-art platform to realise their full potential, enhance their ability to innovate, sharpen their entrepreneurial instincts, and develop socially responsible aspirations.
ComedKares has established eight state of the art Innovation Hubs across Karnataka, that empower students to become problem solvers, acquire competency in emerging technologies and develop solutions that have a positive impact on the community
The programs at ComedKares Innovation Hub is an excellent supplementary to the courses run by the college. Students are able to interact with industry and gain practical insight through hands-on projects
Structured programs are conducted at the Innovation Centres to equip the students with practical experience and give them hands on exposure to advanced concepts and technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Internet Of Things, Design Thinking and more. The programs are designed to cater to students across their four-year engineering course, and provide additional leverage every year. The Centres will also be common forums for community stakeholders to walk in and interact with the students and collaboratively work on building solutions. Students are encouraged to work closely with the community, understand its problems and leverage their engineering knowledge and skills to come up with practical solutions. The programs at ComedKares are endorsed by VTU and recognised by industry. They are fully aligned with the four-year engineering curricula of VTU. There are highly trained and motivated facilitators at each centre.
Set up with an investement of over Rs 20 crores, the Hubs are equipped with cutting-edge design, modelling, prototyping and fabrication equipment and infrastructure.
Comedkares will also research on the topics not restricted to learning curves of the students, their behavior, teaching pedagogies and the best practices that will help the center to become a knowledge repository to strengthen the higher education system of Karnataka.
Competent students give wider visibility for the institution thereby attracting quality students. The partnership shall help in shared resources, mentors, industry experts that can aid the institution in setting up an innovation ecosystem in their region thereby enhancing the outcomes of their own institution. Mutual platform created for students to explore, experiment and excel in their field of interest thereby enhancing the quality of learning of students which in turn helps in NBA, NAAC accreditation and NIRF, ARIIA ranking.
The course will have 12 sessions of 2 hours each and challenges that students need to solve. As it is integrated with the academic calendar of the institution, the course will be spread across the semester or completed during the vacation period of your college.
The courses are designed keeping in mind various branches of engineering, medical and dental colleges and in consultation with officials of universities and principals. Hence, you can choose the courses that are categorized based on your semester.
