VTU, Intel get to the 'core' of the undergrad curriculum

Bangalore-headquartered Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU), has revamped its undergraduate courses, in recognition of the need to remain relevant in a microprocessor era. It will implement a revised curriculum across all 8 semesters where multicore technology is introduced to undergraduate engineering students The revision also integrates parallel programming at the undergraduate level to prepare future software developers to write codes on emerging technologies.
The University has been assisted in this endeavour by chip leaders Intel. The Intel-VTU Multicore Curriculum Revision Initiative has received inputs from Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Intel and senior faculty members from VTU. It also aims at encouraging faculty from the university’s colleges to participate in the course and lab development in an open source model.
“This curriculum revision and modernization of our undergraduate courses in computer science to include multicore and their programming will give our students the required edge as they will develop skills which are relevant to today’s market place”, said Dr H Maheshappa, Vice Chancellor, VTU.

“This is a significant step by the state university in creating an enhanced learning experience for teachers and students in parallel programming at the undergraduate level,” said Narendra Bhandari, Director-Software & Solutions Group, Intel Asia Pacific.

VTU, Intel get to the 'core' of the undergrad curriculum

  "I bought this taelbt, because I didn't want an iPAD because I have to use Excel and Word often at work and with my writing, but I wanted something as convenient as an iPAD versus using my desktop in my home office. PROS: I got the second modular battery which can be slide in the side bay in place of the DVD/writer. This is cool. 8 hours of battery life, perfect for when I'm on the run, working at someplace with a WI-FI or in my den at home. No bothersome power cord in the way. CONS: The finger-touch screen and tracking pad is hard to master. I have a hard time zooming in and out and grabbing things. I can't seem to get it just right. Also, when you click forward or back a page, the ZOOM-IN/ZOOM-OUT seems to have a mind of its own. PROS: The color screen is nice, and the ability to rotate it to be a laptop or be a taelbt is also very convenient. CONS: The stylus is useful, but if you tie it to the side of the taelbt with the cord that comes with it, the cord gets in the way when you close the laptop. PROS: My taelbt came with 250 MB of RAM. CONS: I bought an upgrade RAM chip with 100 MB of added memory, only to find, I couldn't install it, because all of the slots were filled, so buying the additional chip was a waste of money. PROS: The design is nice looking like an iPAD. CONS: The plastic finish is easily smudged by finger prints and oil on your hands. BOTTOM LINE: I like it, and am going to keep it. It isn't perfect, but it works for me."
