HYDERABAD:Education system needs some major changes with more focus on research and development and all college managements should take up R&D work, K Raj Kumar, chairman of Association of Consulting Civil Engineers India (ACCE-I), Hyderabad, said here on Saturday.

Addressing students at the ‘Smart Infr-Est’ at Muffakham Jah College of Engineering & Technology here, Kumar said “Practical workshops should be made part of the curriculum and a balance has to be created so that students get both theoretical and practical knowledge.”

“All college managements should take up R&D work in every subject. When students come out of the college, they are facing many practical problems. R&D will give us solutions to the problems,” he added.

Civil engineering students from 45 colleges across Hyderabad participated in this fest. Lauded as a mega knowledge sharing seminar of 2015, it was organised with a vision of promoting sustainable communities in the form of integrated constructions, reflecting the significance of high performance buildings.

P Surya Prakash, national president, ACCE, speaking on the occasion opined that theme of the fest is apt as the government and people are taking more about smart cities and digital India. “Smart infrastructure or smart cities is the most debated topic these days. Our city, Hyderabad is already smart in many ways,” he said.

Several competitions like Make-in-India-best out of waste, Cadovation, creative design, paper presentation etc. were held as part of the fest.
