Prof. Yogesh Deshpande

Faculty of S & T

Accomplished and student-focused Information Technology Professor with 25 years teaching in diverse class room environments. Creates challenging and engaging learning experience through appropriate use of educational technology tools and applications. Inspires students to pursue academic and personal excellence for becoming life-long learners. Profound experience in the areas of curriculum development, evaluation methodologies, academic audit, quality educational strategies and human-centered design. Having strong leadership and management skills.

I consider that a successful technocrat builds engineering solutions which combine technological wisdom and innovative thinking. I will give opportunity to the learner to choose and learn the most relevant curriculum and to relate the contemporary research to the industry needs. I believe in active learning and use a variety of methods to encourage discussion and interaction in my class. I want my students to have thorough understanding of fundamentals to ground their ideas in practice. Human-centered design solutions to problems is the focus of my teaching.
