Tiruchi likely to be retained as centre for JEE exams this year

Thanks to the Union Human Resource Development Ministry’s ‘one nation-one test’ principle, the student community in Tiruchi region has reason to feel relieved that the admission into National Institutes of Technology will henceforth be based on performance in IIT-Mains, hitherto All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE).

Till last year, students from the central region had to travel to Chennai, Madurai, or Coimbatore to appear for the examination, despite the location of National Institute of Technology in Tiruchi. Interestingly, NIT-T was one of the two centres for conduct of the IIT-JEE while E.R.Higher Secondary School was the other centre.

With the Union Human Resource Development Ministry issuing a notification for conduct of JEE 2013 in two parts: JEE Mains and JEE Advance, what looks obvious much to the relief of the student community is that Tiruchi will be retained as a centre for conduct of these examinations.

For, according to the notification, IITs will have a major say in the JEE Apex Board (JAB) formed for conduct of JEE Mains and Advance. While the JEE-Mains will be conducted by CBSE, which used to conduct the AIEEE, the JEE Advance examination will be the domain of Joint Admission Board of IITs.

There appears to be a high probability for Tiruchi being considered a centre for the conduct of JEE Mains and Advance, said G.Swaminathan, Registrar, NIT-T.

On its part, the NIT-T has already conveyed to the authorities concerned the necessity to make Tiruchi an examination centre, considering its status as an education hub. According to parents, the concentration levels of students take a beating when they sit for examination after a tiring journey, since identifying the specified examination centre in a large city is a task in itself. Minor difference in the score reflects in a huge gap in national-level ranking, parents reason out.

The steady increase in the number of CBSE schools in the central region of Tamil Nadu is a ready indicator of the ever-rising numbers of students appearing for the national engineering entrance examinations every year.

The awareness initiatives carried out by student groups of NIT-T about the entrance examination through conduct of mock tests in southern districts has also contributed to the increase in the number of applicants.

Throughout the country, 15 lakh students are expected to appear for JEE Mains on April 7, 2013, and 1.5 lakh students for JEE Advance on June 2, 2013, according to official information. About six lakh IIT aspirants took up IIT-JEE 2012.

The number is much less in the second stage since only those in the top 20 percentile of the respective boards will be eligible to appear for the JEE Advance, after the screening test: JEE Mains.

The year 2006-07 is the Silver Jubilee year for this great and vibrant University.

The University's main Campus was initially located in a sprawling area of over 1000 acres in Palkalaiperur. However, as years passed on, the South Campus at Palkalaiperur with the available infrastructure was donated to the newly started Anna University of Technology. Very recently, another portion of the land has been allotted to the Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Tiruchirappalli. Also, the University has a downtown campus at Khajamalai, which housed originally the Autonomous Post-Graduate Centre of the University of Madras at Tiruchirappalli. In addition to the administrative complex, which includes the Vice-Chancellor's Secretariat, Registrar's Office, Finance and Examination offices, most of the academic departments and research laboratories are located in the main Palkalaiperur Campus.

The University is an affiliating one with the jurisdiction over the eight districts of Tiruchirappalli, Pudukkottai, Karur, Perambalur, Ariyalur Thanjavur, Tiruvarur and Nagapattinam. The University area lies in the strategic central part of Tamil Nadu, covering the cauvery delta, traditionally known as intellectual capital of the state.

NIT-T eager to launch M.Tech biomedical systems engineering

National Institute of Technology–Tiruchi (NIT-T) intends to launch an M.Tech programme in biomedical systems engineering in collaboration with Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences and Technology (SCTIMST), Trivandrum.

NIT-T has established a bio engineering team to collaborate with the SCTIMST, which has already developed and transferred technologies for 30 products, including heart valves, blood bags, dental fillings and electrode recording devices. Of them, heart valves and blood bags hold market shares of 30 per cent and 95 per cent respectively in the country. Hundred products are in testing stage.

At a brain-storming session here last week, NIT-T Director S. Sundarrajan and SCTIMST Director K. Radhakrishnan explored the scope for synergy between the two national institutions. In India, engineering and medical researches were independent of each other and hence the collaboration whereby the medical challenges converted into engineering problems at SCTIMST will be solved at NIT-T, Dr. Sundarrajan said, exuding hope that NIT-T’s niche strength in the area of wireless technology will be adapted for simulation of activities connected to brain that controls the nervous system. Possibilities for developing a technology for sleep or drowsiness prediction, to keep drivers awake, will be explored, Dr. Radhakrishnan said. Likewise, technology could be developed for recording epilepsy patients for seven to eight days with wired electrodes to identify the origin of seizure, he added.

The only medical research institution in the world with biomedical technology wing focussing on medical devices; a hospital wing with two specialities: cardiac and neurosciences; and public health wing to develop technology and test it on patients before introducing medical devices in market, SCTIMST already has similar tie-ups with IIT-Madras and Christian Medical College, Vellore. It is under this collaboration that SCTIMST has been offering M.Tech in Clinical Engineering, Dr. Radhakrishnan said. The institute also has a tie-up with IIT-Bombay to leverage the strength of nano electronics.

SCTIMST, he said, was carrying out advanced research in polymer technology, bio-ceramics, and tissue engineering. Much progress has been made in development of artificial cornea, he said, adding that in 10 years time, cartilage, bone, kidney and heart will be tissue-engineered, obviating the need for cadaver transplant.

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.
