Renewable Energy Sector of India and Role of JK Lakshmipat University

“India plans nearly 60% of electricity capacity from non-fossil fuels by 2027” – theguardian
“India Targets To Add 42.6 GW Renewable Energy Capacity Over Next 2 Years” – Planetsave.com
“Renewable energy: India’s green push needs wind” – The Indian Express
“A new dawn in Renewable Energy- India attains 4th position in global wind power installed capacity” – Press Information Bureau
“Raise solar capacity additions by 10 GW to reach 2022 target: Study” – Business Standard

These are the some top news on different news portals. Renewable energy, solar energy or wind energy are not the new names to us but are the buzzing words now a days in the energy market. India, which largely depend on fossil fuels for electrical energy generation, now looking towards the non-fossil fuels. Reasons are many like limited amount of fossil fuels; to take steps to reduce carbon footprints; gradually reducing cost of renewable energy generation; nearly zero cost of fuel used in renewable energy plants; comparatively low operating cost of these plants; etc.

Most of the part of India is enriched with solar heat radiations. Also coastal reason of many states and desert reason of some states observes a continuous wind flow which is very suitable for wind energy generation. Apart from the major renewable energy sources (RES) like wind, solar and bagasse other renewable energy sources such as geothermal, tidal, biomass, generation from waste etc. has already been explored although amount of energy production by them is considerably less in comparison to major renewable energy sources. For the last fiscal year 2016-17, energy generation by RES were 7% only of the total electrical energy generation. In this little amount of 7%, contribution by different renewable energy sources is shown in pie diagram. Continue reading

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.

Manufacturing sector encompasses a set of industries to make or produce anything in a factory and therefore, it requires a great deal of specialized knowledge.  Mechanical engineers are often referred as manufacturing engineers also as they are recruited by all kinds of companies which manufacture a variety of machines, robotics and other equipment. The mechanical engineers are normally responsible for the design, selection of materials, specifications and the development of production processes and equipment.  Responsibility for plant layout, production planning and control, as well as plant maintenance is also a major job responsibility that mechanical engineers undertake.

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

Management Education: A Tool to Develop Industry-Ready Workforce

The current economic environment is highly competitive and therefore strives for sustainability. A quality human capital is one of the key factors towards the economic sustainability. There is a strong requirement of a good and quality human resource who can develop this present need of environment without compromising the ability to meet their own needs. Today’s business world need people who can face the contemporary world challenges and can provide the initial corpus and direction to the business towards excellence. Organizations need good managers and industry leaders who can give best results through their communication skills, management skills, research skills, analytical skills, teamwork skills, leadership skills, managerial soft skills and achievement oriented personality.

Personality plays vital role in the success and growth of a person. As personality is a blend of inner psychological characteristics like emotions, thinking, attitude and mindset, which determines and reflect how a person responds to his/her environment therefore it is a corporeal characteristics and makes every individual different and unique. Though personality is developed right from the beginning of childhood but it is a continuous process which keeps on improving through the entire life of a person. Continue reading
