Learning, Teaching, & Assessment
We select future-focused subjects We know this because our students come from industry and also experience great success when they continue their work. This includes careers from leading organizations such as MAS holdings, Dialog Axiata, Sri Lanka Telecom, Mobitel Sri Lanka, Airtel Sri Lanka, Nestle, John Keells, Abans Sri Lanka, Standard Chartered Bank, HSBC, Siemens, Micron Electronics, Otis Elevator Co Pte Ltd, Samsung Electronics and many more.
We teach with the real-world in mind We use extensive lab equipment and practical sessions rather than theory. Some examples of the implementations include Telecommunication Training System (with Fiber Optics), Antenna Training System, DSP Development on Texas development systems, Embedded systems development on Mikroelektronika and Arduino based devices, Multisim Simulations, MATLAB implementations, LabView Virtual Instrumentation Systems and more. Some examples of Lab equipment we use are Digital Storage Oscilloscopes, Function Generators, Power Meters, Frequency Counters, Digital Multimeters, Digital Probes and more.
We assess rigorously for expected work-expectations In a world where academic standards are becoming frivolous and easily manipulated, we use a complex set of assessments methodologies to ensure students are able to perform in a real world environment adopting diagnostic, formative and summative assessment techniques such as in-class tests, pre-tests, interviews, guided reading, early feedback sessions, interim reports, continuous assessment based on lab experiments in addition to final examinations, project reports and papers.
We adopt learning methods at all levels Besides well-structured class sizes and lesson plans, Auston also adopts Learning Methods at all levels including tutorial to support understanding, revision sessions for all classes, student-led presentations, extra-curricular study requirements and lab sessions where appropriate.
