Pre-1950: Focus on engineering practice; design according to
codes and well-defined procedures; limited use of
mathematics; many faculty with industrial experience and/or
strong ties with industry
1950-1990: Focus on engineering sciences; fundamental
understanding of phenomena; analysis; majority of faculty
trained for academic research
1990-?: Focus on teamwork, communication, integration,
design, manufacturing, continuous improvement; maintain
analytic strength

21ST CENTURY TECHNOLOGISTS
21ST CENTURY TECHNOLOGISTS
Major driver for engineering and technological employment
has shifted from defence to global competition; focus on
time-to-market, cost, quality, customer orientation.
Intelligent technologies offer opportunities to be more
creative, work smarter; can revolutionize learning.
Constantly-changing work environment calls for astute
interpersonal skills; employment opportunities shifting to
smaller firms, non-traditional areas.
Massively integrated populations, place environment, health,
and safety at the front end of design; zero discharge, life-
cycle costs, social and political concerns change the classical
economic balance.

T IT HAPPEN?
T IT HAPPEN?
Academic institutions, by centuries-old tradition, are slow to change.
Faculty governance process often talks proposed changes to death.
Educational tradition is teacher-centered, not learner centered.
Strong culture focused on individual, specialized achievement
inhibits faculty collaboration, especially across disciplinary
boundaries.
Faculty reward system and funding patterns in research universities
discourage the investment of significant faculty time in educational
innovation.
At some institutions, industry collaboration is frowned upon; at
others, remote location makes such collaboration difficult.

Rubber Technology Institutes in India

INDIAN RUBBER INSTITUTE
The education of rubber science and technology plays an important
role in development of technical manpower for Rubber and Allied
Industry.
Rubber technology education all over the world is very limited. The
same is true for India as well. Before independence, most of the
people used to go to National College of Rubber Technology
London/London School of Polytechnic for Diploma/Graduation courses
in Rubber Science and Technology.
After the independence, the rubber technology education in India was
initiated by IIT Kharagpur for the Masters and Ph.D Level. And
subsequently it was spread to other universities .
Plastics and Rubber Institute, UK initiated conducting Licentiate and
Diploma Examinations in India through their different consulate
offices in Bombay, Calcutta, Delhi & Madras.

CONCLUSION
Rubber Technology is one of the most critical field where not only
the idea of materials but also a strong back ground of
mechanical, electrical, and advanced mathematics &
computational mechanics are needed.
Indian Rubber Institute in association with Inhouse R&D Centre
of different industrial houses, SIRO institutes and academic
institutions is trying to develop suitable human resources to meet
the emerging national and international technological challenges
specially for automobile industry.
IRI being a Technical Affiliate of ACS Rubber Division, in future
we are looking for ACS Rubber Division Conference in India.
