There is an enormous need to embrace interdisciplinary learning in order to support lifelong learning among graduates and professionals. To achieve this, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education, as well as humanities education, are included in the National Education Policy 2020. The Policy describes the significance of facilitating universal access to high-quality holistic education for all students. It has given students more flexibility in choosing their subjects, and there will be no significant divide between the academics, curricular, extracurricular, and vocational streams because the goal is to ensure holistic growth. Platforms for multidisciplinary learning are needed to boost innovation, adaptation, and productivity.
Thakur College of Engineering and Technology (TCET) created IC-HSTE under the purview of MULTICON-W a decade ago to provide a platform to explore all upcoming research associated to humanities, sciences, and technical education. The Conference on Humanities, Sciences, and Technical Education (IC-HSTE-2024) is a specially designed cluster conference that will provide an interdisciplinary platform for researchers and educators to present and discuss recent innovations and trends, along with practical challenges faced and solutions adopted in the field of Humanities, Sciences, and Technical Education. We are confident that the conference contributes significantly to knowledge in numerous disciplines, enhancing our problem-solving abilities and nurturing our creativity. The conference also aims to bring together the perspectives of these diverse but related domains of knowledge in the aspirations of mutual growth.
