The World of Financial Analytics at JKLU……….Aka, Big Data, data Science and Business Analytics

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high, ……
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection, ……
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habits; ……

The above lines by Nobel Laureate Guru Rabindranath Tagore aptly sum up the current trend in management education worldwide – India, being no exception. Big Data, Data Science and Business Analytics has taken the globe by storm. According to IBM, “every day, we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data — so much that 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years alone. This data comes from everywhere: sensors used to gather climate information, posts to social media sites, digital pictures and videos, purchase transaction records, and cell phone GPS signals to name a few. This is big data”. JK Lakshmipat University, best MBA University in Jaipur and having best private engineering college in Jaipur has two constituents – Institute of Management and Institute of Engineering which hold a gamut of year round activities.

Role of Mechanical Engineering in ‘Make In India’

Mechanical Engineering is one of the basic branches of engineering and its fundamental principles are used in the design, development and construction of nearly all of the physical devices and systems we see around us including but not limited to automobiles, machines in all kind of factories, machinery used in building construction, road construction, agriculture etc. Mechanical engineers are also involved with the design, construction and operations of all kinds of machinery. They conceptualize design for any product to be manufactured. They also develop, test and manufacture the state of the art machinery.

Industry-Institute Interface: Education beyond Boundaries

As per the Annual Status of Higher Education (ASHE) report 2016 from CII, the Draft National Education policy 2016 has been conceptualized to be a response to the main challenges that exist in the education sector in India. One of the main goals of this policy is to align higher education with skill development objectives, to facilitate the acquisition of technical and vocational skills that enhance employability. In this era of growing number of private/self-financed higher educational Institutes, the challenges for this Country are also changing its shape. The challenges are to engage the so-called trained youth in the employment matching to their expectation as per their qualification.

To match formal education with employability, a good interface between Industries and Institutes is required and it would need active participation from both. The efforts may be in the form of fruitful internships, flexible curriculum permitting students to work at industries in final year, industry visits, and faculty recharge programs at the industries, joint workshops, training programs, conferences, talks, curriculum development, etc. Continue reading

Scope of Computer Science Engineering: Specialization in Enterprise IT

In today’s enterprise IT scenario, industries and academicians have been talking about skill gaps and have been categorically coining word “unemployable engineers”. When a student takes admission in Computer Science Engineering or Electronics & Communication Engineering or any other branch, he needs to understand basic science courses, understand all engineering branches as they are tightly coupled with each other, courses related to core discipline in which they are fascinated with and would be drawing their career graph, some management courses and humanities courses to be called and recognized as “Holistic Engineer”. Industry professionals also support and strongly advocate these courses to be part of curriculum.

But the demand of Industry, particularly in Technology sector today is readily employable workforce. This industry is partially product driven and majorly service driven. After adoption of technology by client, business is dependent on service. Certifications are the means to equip oneself with know-how of product and technologies related to that product adopted by wide client-base. Continue reading
