Currently, due to excessive emphasis on the theoretical nature of subjects taught, students may not be equipped enough to live up to the requirements of the industry. Their inability to relate the theoretical concepts to real world situations undermines their value in the market. National Instruments (NI) touts experiential learning as the next big thing in learning. It essentially aims to bridge the gap between skill sets required by the industry and the skill set engineering students are equipped with in universities. They have been pushing for concept of Virtual Instrumentation, a platform that enables experiential learning. BITS Pilani has adopted NI's technique to few of its engineering courses.
