A day at Tirunelveli

Well. Aug 2nd, I travelled to Infant Jesus Engineering College, Tirunelveli for a one day session, once again for IEEE.. 🙂

ImageThe Session was “Being an IEEEian leading to success”. The happy thing about the invitation to this event was that, I was invited by Major Chandrasekhar Sir who is Hon Secretary and Student ActiviteS Chair of IEEE Madras section. The event was meant to cater to one of the largest crowd I have ever been with- 800 people – Forenoon and afternoon together.

 

 

 

 

 

 

As I get more and more opportunities to Interact ImageImagewith our Students in India, I can’t help, but note that, the exposure level of our Students are dangerously low. Engineering Students are far from actually being engaged in a professional course. The problem is standing as a mammoth in front of all of us.. 😦 On the positive note, I was happy to see that over 70 percent (approx) of the crowd have online presence.

 

 

 

 

 

The session was enjoyable. Infant Jesus management was very supportive. With a dynamic and young Director leading the Pack, the college really wants to do better things for their students. I should thank Subash sir who actually did the hard work in co-ordinating with me and offering exceptional hospitality.

And like any other IEEE event, I received a lot of FB requests.. 🙂 Not sure as to when my next trip will be and to where it will be. However, I think I should limit my trips a bit more.. 🙂

Until we meet next, take care world… 🙂

After the Chennai Visit

Hello World,

The 4 days at Chennai were awesome. 3 days at Sathyabhama University for the Placement drive and 1 day with all my friends and yeah, I caught up with Rakesh(Raku- he is in Mysore Infy these days and I don’t get to meet him). IEEE Madras section Student Team were making me feel good (as always) – Anand, Nivas, Harini, Salma, Apoorva, Sharon, Arun, Niveditha. It was nice to catch up yet again with my long time friends – Barnabas and Felix…:)

The placement drive for around 50+ Students was a good experience for me too. However, I can’t help, but notice the Lack of Basics for our Engineering Students. Having worked with Engineering Students for the last 6 years(with IEEE), I have always seen and known this issue. Though we have a team(in IEEE which I’m also a part of) addressing this problem, we are far far from done. Probably we all need to put in more thoughts as how each of us can contribute to India’s Education System.

That was the closure note… Bye..:)

Travelling to Chennai – July 11th

Hello World,

 

How much ever I try, regular blogging has been tricky. This is yet another trial. I’m yet to pen down a lot of happenings in between (which I will do soon).

 

I’m travelling to Chennai once again (2 weeks back, I was there for 2 days). This time, it is to handle a 3 day placement training workshop at Sathyabhama University. The event is being organised by the Madras Student Activities Team (formely GINI MAS Team).As with any other IEEE event, I expect a mindblowing 3 days.

After that, I will be going to be with my friends at MM Nagar. I heard that Raku (Rakesh -2010 CEC) is at Chennai this weekend. Hope to catch up with him as well.

 

Let this be short and Sweet.. Bubye.. 🙂
