CII launches educational excellence forum

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The objective is to address core components of education: faculty, student and curriculum

The top to bottom approach will provide tailor-made solutions for a synergised outcome
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Confederation of Indian Industry–Tiruchi Zone has launched its Education Excellence Forum (EEF) constituting eight member institutions in the region.

R.Nandini, chairperson, CII Southern Region Education Sub-Committee, launched the forum as part of the CII’s Southern Region Education Initiative. As a follow-up to the EEF’s maiden launch at MAM College of Engineering, the initiative will be extended to other zones, she said.

The member institutions constitute Care School of Engineering, Jayaram College of Engineering and Technology, Hallmark Business School, MAM College of Engineering, MAM College of Engineering and Technology, MAM School of Engineering, Periyar Maniammai University, and Roever Engineering College.

The objective of EEF is to address core components of education: faculty, student and curriculum, through the prism of industry to improve employability quotient.

A year-long activity with a top to bottom approach will provide tailor-made solutions and recommendations for a synergised outcome.

The approach will enable students to align their learning practices with industry requirements and equip themselves to meet dynamic changes in the economy directed at reviving the nation’s growth trajectory, a CII press release said.

The faculty module will encompass interaction and knowledge sharing on best practices, and workshop sessions with industry.

Research will be encouraged through cyberspace discussion groups, working papers and publication, besides participation in real life projects related to industry issues.

For faculty, the forum will provide opportunities to leverage technology and get involved in research and consultancy to make their outcome contemporary.

The student module will reflect in industry interactions and exposure to discipline-wise streaming guest lectures, preparation of test bank, personality development and career counselling with industry outlook, along with ethics and social responsibility.

The forum, the release said, will facilitate curriculum connect through round table meetings between education and industry representatives, and refer its recommendations to academic boards of studies and appropriate bodies.

IIIT Srirangam project gets two more companies as private sponsors

The proposed Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) at Srirangam, near Tiruchi, a pet project of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, which hit a hurdle with some companies backing out of this public-private-partnership, is seeing some ray of rope now.

Two more companies, to add to the initial four sponsors, have given their letter of consent for participation. "Two companies have given their consent today for participating in this initiative," said Higher Education Secretary TS Sridhar, while addressing corporates at an event conducted by the ICT Academy of Tamil Nadu in Chennai on Monday. The academy is an initiative of the Indian Government, Tamil Nadu Government and the CII. He didn't name the two companies.

Discussions for the setting up of the IIITstarted in April this year, a Government Website had then noted, with participation from companies such as Hyundai , Ashok Leyland, Polaris Financial Technology, Infosys, Saint-Gobain, TVS group, Tafe, Autodesk, Take Solutions and Microsoft Corporation. Only four sponsors - Cognizant, TCS, Take Solutions and Infosys co- chairman Kris Gopalakrishnan (personal contribution) - eventually agreed to take part, giving Rs 2 crore each toward the project. Others who took part in the initial discussions backed out. These four also refused to contribute further to make good the loss of those who backed out.

"We need a minimum of three and maximum of ten corporates to be a part of this venture. I request companies to contribute academically and financially. It is a worthy venture to participate and participating companies will be on the board of IIIT," Sridhar said. Tamil Nadu already has an IIIT at Kanchipuram for IT in design as well as manufacturing.

The IIITs are jointly promoted by India's Ministry of Human Resource Development, the host state government and the industry. These institutions provide undergraduate as well as postgraduate education in information technology. According to a note on the Web site of the Ministry of Human Resource Development, 20 IIITs have been planned in the 11th Five Year Plan (which ends this year).

NIT-T’s CEDI all set to foster entrepreneurship

The Centre for Entrepreneurship Development and Incubation (CEDI) launched by National Institute of Technology–Tiruchi (NIT-T) promises to be an effective launching pad for graduates in IT and electronics disciplines in Tamil Nadu to realise their entrepreneurial dreams.

Funded to the tune of Rs.1.55 crore under the TIDE scheme of the Union Ministry of ICT, CEDI will see through setting up and strengthening Technology Incubation Centres, nurturing Technology Entrepreneurship Development for commercial exploitation of technologies developed by them, promoting product oriented research and development, encouraging development of indigenous products and packages, and bridging the gap between R&D and commercialisation, thereby aligning education to market requirements, according to G. Kannabiran, professor of Management and Dean – Research and Consultancy. In the long run, the CEDI will bring about indigenous development of products and packages in Electronics as well as IT sectors, he said.

The NIT-T, he said, now ranks among some of the leading institutions, including a few IITs, to have a CEDI. At NIT-T, the CEDI has been started under Section 25 of the Company’s Act with flexibility to support and benefit through commercial activities. The CEDI’s support, he said, will reflect through policy measures, creating appropriate frameworks, infrastructure support, entrepreneurial- training and IPR facilitation.

The centre networks with Angel Investors and Venture Capitalists (VCs) who provide mentoring and financial support to the start-ups that will move out after establishing themselves very well in the business venture. In the initial two to three years, CEDI will provide operating space (ready-to-use space for each entrepreneur, a common office facility with Internet access, and a meeting room with audio-visual equipment) to the selected companies, nurture them and mobilise technical, mentoring, managerial, financial, legal and other support.

Companies selected for incubation would get financial support, in the form of soft loans of up to Rs.25 lakhs over two- three years period subject to satisfactory performance. The sanctioned loan amount would be up to a maximum of 80% of the project cost for procuring essential equipment and consumables, subsistence allowance of the promoters, staff salaries and other contingencies.

Towards the end of their presence in CEDI, the company will have to return part of the financial support given to the company as per CEDI’s policy and the remaining amount can be paid as equity to CEDI, which can be en-cashed at the time of valuation.

Selection of companies will be on the basis of a detailed techno-commercial proposal, including a business plan, submitted by prospective entrepreneurs. The business plan will be evaluated on its technical merits and commercial viability by a committee of experts. The CEDI would regularly monitor the progress of the company, to determine conformity to strict time-lines. The first batch of applications from entrepreneurs will be processed in September 2012. For more details, mail tokb@nitt.edu.

He spoke at the eighth convocation of NIT-T held at the institute on Saturday. As many as 1,322 students from various disciplines received their degrees from B Prasada Rao, chairman and managing director of Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) who was the chief guest of the function.

Sundarrajan appreciated the young faculty members of NIT-T for getting most of these projects from the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, Coir Board, Ministry of Information Technology, Department of Atomic Energy and Defence Research and Development Organisation. The institute is currently carrying out 141 projects with a funding of Rs 34 crore from as many as 25 leading national and international funding agencies. Moreover, the institute has on-going MoUs with 10 leading industrial organizations and 10 reputed universities from India and abroad.

On a long relationship with BHEL, Trichy, he said the MOU with BHEL had been renewed for a further five years with focus of strategic partnership in areas such as development of super-critical boilers. During this year, NIT-T trained around 500 engineers and managers from BHEL in personality development. The students of NIT-T also got placed in India and abroad with the highest offer of $ 1,25,000 ever made for any T-school being bagged by NIT-T.

Earlier, Prasada Rao addressed the media saying that as part of industry-oriented research and industry-institute interaction programme, BHEL would spend 2.5 percent of its total turnover for research and development (R&D). The company had spent Rs 1,200 crore on R&D on its welfare as well as in premier educational institutions last year. For 2012-13, they planned to hike the amount to Rs 1,400 crore. They would focus on research in super critical boilers, ultra critical boilers and new materials, he added.

Marked rise in average annual salary in NIT-T’s campus placements

The average annual salary in campus placements in National Institute of Technology – Tiruchi (NIT-T) has risen to Rs. 6 lakh per annum from Rs.5.5 lakh last year.

Highest in country

While the placement was close to 100 per cent for B.Tech candidates, for post-graduates, it was 80 per cent, the highest among technical institutions in the country. For three consecutive years, candidates from NIT-T have been bagging the highest annual package in the country.

Like last year, this time the highest annual salary was $1,25,000 U.S. for a graduate of Computer Science and Engineering recruited by a company based in United States of America, A.K. Bhakthavatsalam, Dean – Placement and Training, told presspersons on Thursday.

The highest package offered by an Indian company was Rs. 16 lakh per annum. As for MBA, the average package per annum was Rs. 7.5 lakh. Candidates were placed in IT, Banking, Consulting and core sectors. For the first time, the number of recruiting companies exceeded 200. As per a survey, NIT-T was ahead of even the older IITs in placements, Dr. Bhakthavatsalam said.

Faculty recruitment

Institute Director S. Sundarrajan said initiatives have been put in place to make NIT-T India’s first-ranking technical institution. In the coming months, up to 100 new faculties will be recruited to match the increased student strength corresponding to the 54 per cent OBC quota increase.

The NIT-T has approached IIT-Madras to impart training to teaching faculties. The syllabi will be revamped by this year-end. While the focus was on research last year, this year, the attention will be on academic and industry partnerships, Dr. Sundarrajan said.

The Institute was contemplating establishing more centres of excellence in nanotechnology, MEMS (Microelectromechanical Systems), and niche areas such as Particle Movement with wide applications in various fields.
