Autonomous university status soon
Visakhapatnam: Sanketika technical and management institutions of Alwardas Group of Technical Institutions will soon go global with exchange of students and faculty members with the best of the universities in the world.
The newly appointed dean of the group, Bhaskar Venkataramani, an expert in the technical education and having working experience of more than 30 years in various institutions both in India and abroad, said his aim was to make all the students more employable and be part of the growth engines.
He said the syllabus would be redesigned and half of the curriculum would be working experience in any industries. The institutions would know the demand of the industries accordingly nurture the students to suit them.
In order to improve the skills of the students and equally faculty members, an expert in the field Dr Brian Purdy would be leading a team from Australia to explore the possibility of a Sanketika tie up with Australian institutions and other foreign universities.
Brian would be assigned the task for one year in executing a possible tie up. “We want the students to learn management along with technical courses and have industrial experience so that they can compete with the international students in the future,” Bhaskar said. He said there were plans to set up IBM laboratory and incubation facilities on the campus to encourage students in start-up programmes.
Correspondent and secretary S Rajendra said he was making all out efforts to fulfill his father Alwardas dreams in shaping the engineering and management colleges to world standards.
“We are tying up with foreign universities and launch a series of faculty development programmes to bring best out of the students,” Rajendra said. He added that efforts were also on to get autonomous university status to Alwardas Group of Institutions.
Earlier in the day, Rajendra and Bhaskar Venkataramani addressed the students who passed out from polytechnic college and their parents on the prospects of joining engineering degree or getting employment.
Ramani advised the students to go for all round development in addition to excelling in academy to improve their performance levels. Later, the parents and their wards interacted with the students and faculty members.
