"Human memory is picture oriented and not word oriented." - This is the main concept behind a study tour.
Study tour is the planned combination of industry visits, site visits with the target of technical and global learning which can enhance the knowledge of students and can help them to see the clear picture of the theoretical things they have learnt so far. They can gain a deeper understanding of real life situations and trends than a book can ever convey. Along with professional skill development, students can get the chance to build independence and confidence as they explore new places and local customs. In this very way, every year ‘The Department of Mechanical Engineering, RUET’ has been organized seven (07)day long study tour for the final year students and industrial visit for the other students.
"“Education – Exposure – Experience”."
Industrial Visit offers diverse learning-based, and a fabulous range of industries across different sectors which gives the ultimate benefit to the students to learn and understand the industry thoroughly that helps them to choose their career.Industrial Visit must root to the core design which provides an incremental learning experience, i.e., "Idea - Information - Knowledge - Wisdom".
The Tours can reinforce what a teacher has been instructing in class about a subject and help students understand the topic better.
Teachers turn Tours into mobile classrooms, instructing students to collect data, then quizzing them or assigning a project based on what they learned during the outing.
Taking students into a new environment gives them the experience of traveling in a group and teaches them to be respectful of the locations they visit.
Mainly students get to visit a place to which they have never been before and having so many learning objects exists. This can be particularly advantageous to students who are less fortunate and don't have the opportunity to travel.
Students who go on Educational Tours find that they want to learn more about the subjects on which the Tours focused.
