Also the practicing engineers and reseachers form research and development centers etc must be able to enhance their scientific knowledge. Therefore emphasis is placed in the program of education and research to train the students so that they attain the ability to apply their specialized skills to practical problems in an efficient manner. Also with the aim of helping them to become familiar with a wide variety of topics, the engineers and researchers are additionally trained in subjects other than their main specialization.
