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… 🙂

Back to my College – CEC for IEEE All Kerala WIE Day

Hello World,

Today, I’m indeed happy to pen down. After a few months, I went back to my College – College of Engineering Chengannur. The new block of the college – wow – it was dream come true to see it.. 🙂

The IEEE All Kerala WIE Day – Indeed a remarkable vision, initiative and efforts from the IEEE Volunteers of IEEE CEC. An event to empower WIE (Girl) volunteers through a series of competitions and inetractions with personalities from different aspects of like. I should thanks the team for inviting me to the handle a session on ‘Introduction to Corporate World’ to the students. The crowd that i got was amazing. The session was one of the better ones. 🙂

Catching up with so many of my juniors (College and IEEE) was again something t felt happy about.

Wishing that we have more of these kind of initiatives in the future as well..

Bye!!!.. 🙂

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..:)
