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

Is it easy for India to become a cashless economy?

Cashless economy has become a buzzword after the Modi’s Government announcement of demonetization exercise on Nov. 8th to curb black money from Indian economy.

Cashless doesn’t mean ‘without cash economy’ rather it means least or less cash into economy. It is a step towards the digital economy because it ensures that the digital fingerprints of all the transactions are available.

India has one of the highest ratios of cash to GDP in the world. Last year, 78% of all consumers’ payments in India were made by cash, whereas in the developed world like US /UK, only 20 to 25 % payments were made that way. According to a 2014 study by Tufts University, The cash operations cost of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and commercial banks is about Rs. 21, 000 crore annually. Cash economy facilitates the black money, fake money, money laundering, drug trading, tax evasion, no transparency, corruption, etc. Certainly, cash economy has its benefits such as it empowers unbanked families, easy transaction, acts as a store of value, no transaction fee, and no records of big data and provides safety from hackers and online transacting companies. In the present era, the benefits are losing relevance and cashless is a way for honest, transparent, safe and secure society. In such scenario cashless economy is a boon for Indian economy.

What will make a Successful MBA?

In the build up to admissions for various management programs, it is an opportune time to reflect on who the management institutions are looking for to join us next year. Every university/institution is extremely proud of its students and look for a few distinctive traits that are common to all individuals within the MBA cohort.

Intellectual ability and a good academic track record are essential, of course, but as the institutions select the Class of 2017, there are three attributes that the Admissions Committee look for when selecting candidates for the MBA.

 Leadership

First and foremost, the institutions look for candidates who exhibit strong leadership potential throughout their academic and professional experience. This can take many forms: being selected for a leadership program at work (for the candidates who have work experience), launching a new business venture, captaining a sports team or leading a voluntary project – anything which demonstrates your ability to lead, inspire and motivate others. MBAs have the leadership potential not just to succeed in business, but to create new opportunities and be trailblazers for others. Today management institutions want candidates with the drive and ambition to change the world for the better. Continue reading

Quantitative and Qualitative Reliability Theory in Engineering

Reliability theory is a complex science related directly to engineering, science and economics. Reliability is theoretically defined as the probability of success or the frequency of failures. Reliability engineering deals with the estimation, prevention and management of high levels of lifetime engineering uncertainty and risks of failure.  At present, not only engineers and scientist but also government leaders are concerned to increase the reliability of manufactured goods. We at one of the best universities in Jaipur, JK Lakshmipat university believe that failure prediction can be improved if reliability modeling is integrated in the field of Civil engineering, Mechanical engineering, Computer Science engineering and many more. In order to solve many of engineering problems those arise in reliability theory, the methods of probability theory has been used. Reliability theory introduces quantitative indices of quality of production. Reliability engineering has both Continue reading
