Shivani group of institutions receive ISO certification

Image

By devising a procedure to conform to standardised systems in teaching-learning process, the Shivani Group of Institutions on Monday secured ISO 9001:2008 certification for its six institutions.

N.Pradeep Kumar, Chennai Region General Manager of TUV Nord, a global leader in independent testing, inspection and certification services, handed over the certificates to the heads of Shivani Institute of Technology, Shivani Engineering College, Shivani School of Business Management, SSK Polytechnic College, Mariamman College of Education, and Mariamman Teacher Training Institution.

To sustain ISO (International Organisation for Standardisation) certification is a tough proposition since periodic audits of the process was bound to get tougher with every cycle, Mr.Pradeep Kumar said, clarifying that the focus of ISO certification, a measurement mechanism, was for the process and not product. The outcome cannot be decided with just the pass percentage. The set of objectives enabling fulfilment of requirements varies from one type of educational institution to another, Mr.Pradeep explained.

He was appreciative of the group of institutions catering to diverse higher educational requirements.

The guest of honour for the occasion, Rajappa Rajkumar, president of BHEL Small Industries’ Association, saw substantial progress in industry-institution interaction. He advocated visits to industries by faculties and students, explaining that such exposures would pave way for generation of readily employable candidates.

The ISO certification, hoped P.Selvaraj, Chairman of the Shivani Group of Institutions, will be a motivating factor for teachers to deliver their professional responsibilities systematically. ISO certification was inevitable for quality infusion.

The management has been encouraging teachers with suitable incentives to present papers at academic conferences, he said. Explaining the significance of the ISO accreditation, E.Ramasamy, Director, Shivani Institute of Technology, said that teaching-learning and teacher quality constitute a chunk of the NAAC accreditation parameters.

Bharathidasan University starts computer course for students



‘University certification for school students? Impossible’, would have been the retort some time back, though not any more.

Bharathidasan University in collaboration with International Institute for Career Development, Tiruchi and Coimbatore-based publishing house Hi-End Software Integrated has launched SUITS (School + University + Industry + Tie-up + Scheme), to impart IT education at the school level and award university certification on successful completion of all the examinations.

The university has observed imparting information technology in middle school level itself would empower and instil confidence in young minds, more so, when accompanied by a university certification on successful completion.

A cross-section of the students that this correspondent met said that they were proud to learn programming languages such as Visual Basic, C, C++, Java etc, even before they stepped into higher secondary school level.

The programme is exclusively designed for the middle, high and secondary school students.

Besides the student, the school which ties up for implementing SUITS programme has an opportunity to get its teachers updated with the latest trend in IT education and adopt different educational technologies in handling the subjects.

The programme was launched three years back in 2009.

Mr S. Kathiravan, Founder-Director of Hi-End Software Integrated says that there has been a steady increase in the enrolment for SUITS. “These enrolments are from class V-IX,” he said.

Hi-End imparts training and organises workshops and guest lectures for teachers, apart from offering guidance and counselling for students

Merger of Anna Universities hailed by college principals

Principals of engineering colleges here have expressed happiness and relief over the State government’s announcement making Anna University a single affiliating university for engineering colleges all over the State.

“The present AIADMK Government’s policy decision to merge the five Anna Universities of Technology with Anna University, Chennai, has been welcomed by all affiliated colleges due to the perceived fall in standards of the newly created universities,” according to a principal.

Though the formal announcement has been made a bit late, the process of merger started last year when the State government withdrew the financial powers of the local universities.

“But, continuance of the Vice-Chancellors in their posts complicated administrative matters.

Quality can be ensured

Now that the announcement has been made, quality could be ensured through uniformity in the syllabus,” said another principal, exuding hope that the zonal offices will function effectively to rectify administrative shortcomings.

However, there is still no clarity on the future of non-teaching staff in the AUTs.

A majority among the qualified candidates appointed under contract system, hope that the government will retain their postings when the proposed zonal offices take shape in Tiruchi, Tirunelveli, Madurai, and Coimbatore.

Anna University to become a single entity from August 1

Anna University will once again become a single affiliating university for engineering colleges all over the State from August 1.

Chief Minister Jayalalithaa announced the date from which five regional Anna Universities of Technology (AUT) functioning in different parts of the State will be merged under Anna University, which was the state’s first technical university established in 1978.

The DMK regime had split the Anna University to create regional universities in Chennai, Madurai, Coimbatore, Tiruchi and Tirunelveli from 2007 for various reasons such as decentralising administration of technical education and creating geographical proximity with affiliated engineering colleges. Anna University, the parent institution, was converted into a non-affiliating university, with some constituent colleges under it.

Policy decision

However, the present AIADMK government took a policy decision to merge the five regional universities and passed a bill to that effect in September 2011. Thereafter, it appointed a monitoring committee under senior civil servant Sheela Balakrishnan to study all aspects of the proposed merger, including the status of students, teachers, non-teaching staff, moveable and immoveable assets and presented a detailed report.

“Based on examination of this report, the Chief Minister ordered the merger of the five AUTs with Anna University, Chennai, and it will come into force from August 1,” an official press release said.

As a result of this move, 535 engineering colleges will be affiliated to Anna University, and 12 constituent colleges under Tiruchi, Tirunelveli, Chennai and Madurai AUTs will become constituent colleges under it.

Departments of AUT, Chennai, will now come under Anna University. The departments of AUT, Tiruchi, will be merged to form one constituent college of Anna University based in Tiruchi. In respect of the departments in other AUTs, students would be attached to the respective zonal offices of Anna University.

Four zonal offices would function in the four cities other than Chennai for administrative convenience. These offices would monitor the functioning of constituent and affiliated colleges and also address the grievances of students in these institutions, the release said.

Academic schedule remains same

The merger would not disrupt the academic schedule, as already the semester examinations held in January and May 2012 were conducted directly by Anna University.

“The world famous Anna University will regain its lost glory, fame and tradition by this merger. By bringing all technical institutions under one umbrella, engineering students all over Tamil Nadu will have the same syllabus. It will also help them contribute better in higher education and research,” the government said.

Arguing that merely increasing the number of universities would not raise the standard of education, the government said the university lost its strength after it was split into regional institutions.

Without raising the standard of education, it merely resulted in creating institutions that had no autonomy.

Further, the certificates issued by Anna University commanded respect and recognition, the government said.

School of Welding targets 16 training programmes

The School of Welding attached to Welding Research Institute (WRI) at BHEL here has set a target to complete 16 training programmes of five kinds: welding and inspection, certified welding inspectors, ultrasonic testing – level II, radiographic film interpretation, and NDT techniques, during 2012-13.

Already four programmes: two each in ‘welding and inspection’ and ‘certified welding inspectors’ have been completed.

Basic information

The former programme providing basic information about various welding processes, welding metallurgy, and inspection techniques benefits personnel from fabrication industries, automobile, power plant, ship building and a host of other fabrication sectors, while the latter is meant for those welding personnel who seek career as welding inspectors and those involved in quality control and quality assurance functions.

Focussing on International codes of construction, the ‘certified welding inspectors’ course equips participants to carry out inspection of weld in the fabrication of pressure vessels, structural, and piping. Over 4,000 inspectors have already benefitted by this course and are occupying key positions in the world, WRI sources said.

Likewise, the Ultrasonic Testing Level-II certification programme conforms to the requirements of American Society for Non Destructive Testing. Programmes in radiographic film interpretation and NDT Techniques are useful for quality professionals, designers, and manufacturing personnel.

The training workshop is equipped with facilities for SMAW (Shielded Metal Arc Welding), GMAW (Gas Metal Arc Welding), GTAW (Gas Tungsten Arc Welding) and SAW (Submerged Arc Welding) processes. The welding techniques and skills are taught for plates, pipes, and tubes in various positions. Welders are trained in variety of materials such as carbon steels, low alloy steels, stainless steels and non-ferrous materials.

Conducted 900 courses

Having conducted 900 welding and NDT courses benefitting 15,600 engineers/supervisors from private/ public sector organisations, and trained 4,800 welders under the technical skill development training programme since its inception in 1975, the School of Welding, officials said, was prepared to conduct tailor-made programmes specific to industries in welding and allied areas.

Almost every major industry in both public and private sectors has sent personnel for training at WRI that has been recognised by Indian Boiler Board to certify welders as per Indian Boiler Regulations (IBR).

The training programme conforms to codes such as ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers), British Standards, and DIN (a German Institute for Standardisation) as well.

WRI has also been certified by American Welding Society as School Excelling through National Skills Standard Education (SENSE), and a participating organisation for SENSE Training and Testing Programme.
