According to India's Human Resource Development Ministry, as of 2019, 6000 plus engineering and management institutions across India enrolled 2.9 million students and 1.5 million students graduated and entered the job market every year. Of these, it was identified that 30 were employable and only 7 were skilled. Then in 2020, due to the pandemic, learning and education shifted towards an online platform. Students had to adapt to newer methodologies of e-learning and assessments. As per Gartner's hype cycle, there was a huge demand for engineers and technology managers developing IoT-based smart technologies at the same period. Hence, the government of India suggested the engineering and management institutions consider the educational requirements of the people creating these emerging technologies and thereby facilitate such required knowledge areas using appropriate learning and assessment methods. In our paper, we believe that the mantra of education should be to customize learning and personalize education. This belief is made possible by adopting a contemporary model of education known as FRIYAY. This model consists of a blended learning environment; and distributed and differential assessment methods to suit the requirements of the diversified learners. The principal objective behind this contemporary learning and assessment framework for engineering and management education is to enable learning effectiveness amongst students and thus make learning competency-based and education outcome-driven. This contemporary model of education could further enhance the research index of educational institutions across the globe. © 2022 IEEE.
