Principal extended a warm welcome to all the visiting dignitaries, all the HOD’s other faculty and the members of the Research Council. 

 In his welcome address, he referred to the good practices of the college and also appreciated the efforts made by the Research Centre established in the college under the leadership of Dr. C.M. Vara Prasad as the Director of the Centre

Dr. C. M. Vara Prasad, Director, Research Centre explained about the aims and purpose of the Meet. In his address, he narrated that the Research Centre, a brain child of the Secretary, Mr. Nalla Malla Reddy, is established in the college on 1st August, 2010 with sole purpose of bringing in the Research environment on the campus stressing the need of Industrial Collaboration in achieving sponsored projects.  He also expressed the general view that a poor percentage of outgoing graduates are found to be employable by the industries in public and private sectors.  He requested the visiting dignitaries to advise the Institute on the academic gaps, if any, to make the outgoing graduates  Industry -  ready and employable with confidence. 
He sought assistance from the Industry on suggesting Industry-Oriented Projects to be taken up by the final year students under the stipulations prescribed by the affiliating University.  He also brought out the need of regular interactions between the faculty and the Industry to take up meaningful research projects in collaboration with the Industry for mutual benefit.

The Heads of the Departments made Power Point Presentations on the strengths and expertise available in the respective Departments including the research activities undertaken by a few of the faculty members.  They sought the assistance of the Industries to strengthen further the efforts of the Depts. in developing Industry Oriented Research Projects.                                                     

Dr. Divya Nalla, Vive-Principal narrated on the good practices being adopted in the Institute with special emphasis on the discipline, teaching-learning practices, technical activities, personality development programme and the faculty development programs.

All the visiting personalities expressed their appreciation for the novel beginning made by the Research Centre of the Institute and volunteered to lend their helping hand whenever required.

 

Dr. C.M. Vara Prasad, Director, Research Centre summed up the deliberations of the day. He expressed that it is gratifying to note that there is overwhelming response from the Industry for the invitation as more than 25 professionals representing 20 organisations have taken part in the Meet.

In summing up the proceedings, he brought out the following view points expresses by the visitors.

  1. It is generally felt that there is a kind of mismatch between the needs of the Industries and the academics of the Institute as the Industry’s projects are time-bound, Result-Oriented with short-time frames where as the Institutes are constrained to follow the time frame/schedules prescribed by the affiliating Universities.
  2. The Industry-Institute-Interaction Meets such as the one organised are important and the efforts of the Institute are appreciable in taking the lead and it should be continued to achieve tangible results by the collaborative efforts of faculty and Industry in exchanging their views at regular intervals.
  3. The Institutes are advised to inculcate positive thinking in students to boost up the confidence levels and they should be given sound concepts in basics, made to apply the concepts, system level approach to be adopted in learning process and the students are to be trained to have adoptability to working conditions of the Industry.
  4. It was suggested that a website may be created for the Research Centre of the college.
