We live in a time of revolutionary change. Not only is the world relying increasingly on technology for economic growth and job development, but the nation is making the difficult transition of refocusing a significant amount of its technology investment from national security to international economic competitiveness. At the same time we view technology as important in helping to solve many difficult societal problems. Within this technological context, engineers play an ever more significant role. Engineering is an ideal education for living and working in the technologically--dependent society of the twenty first century. Apart from our missions as reflected above, our missions that an academic institution imparting professional courses should have towards the society at large, are embodied in a nutshell below :--
Development of human resources so as to add value to product and services.
Improvement of quality of life of the people in general and the local in particular.
To keep pace with the rapid changes taking place in the socio-economic, industrial and technological scenario as we perceive in the Twenty First Century.
To build up rapport with the industries and encourage industry institute interaction with a motto to create industry--institute partnership in the future days to come.
Dissemination of gainful knowledge which is the permanent remedy for poverty, corruption and exploitation.
To organize seminars, conferences, symposia and such other activities with a view to making general public familiar with and appreciative of the quantitative view inter alia, social, literary and aesthetic thoughts leading to research and experiment there of.
To render assistances/or grant aid to public charitable trust or institutions having objects similar to those of the trust.
To acquire and hold movable and immovable properties in furtherance to the attainment of these objectives.
To render benefit to the general public at large irrespective of caste, creed and sex whatever, and also for the development of the areas surrounding the institute.
We are moving through a period of rapid Technological change in the realm of industries. A missed opportunity could mean the demise of the firm or even the industry. It is essential not to overlook the fact that it is the application and consequences of these changes which are wealth creating--not the technological developments themselves. For the creation of wealth, technological change must be harnessed to provide improved or new products within the time scales and costs commensurate with competitive market needs. This is the central theme of engineering management in manufacturing industry. It involves many tasks including product innovation and the product realization process. To face the challenges the management will invariably go for getting the right people, aiming at the right targets, encouraging innovation through competition and developing awareness of the social and other consequences of new technology. The responsibility of the institution will be to generate right type of technical manpower who will be in a position to meet up the craze of industries. The syllabi should be highly flexible and laboratories and workshops should be well equipped. Industry institute interaction should be built up and this should go a long way to built up industry institute partnership.
Several surveys from industrialized and developing countries have revealed that industries need for quality Engineering education to contain a component of skills and experiences. Three important skills, namely, hands on experience gained through experimentation, lifelong learning and communication by speech, writing and graphics—All are based on knowledge and extensive training in and out of the classroom. In the light of above, the institution has to give importance on:
Mission oriented programs.
Promotion of R & D, linkage with industries, national laboratories, centres and institutions.
Quality assurance and excellence.
Strengthening management and governance structures.
Inculcating analytical, integrative and problem solving abilities.
Imparting ideal engineering education for living & working in the technologically dependent society of the 21st century.
Helping intellectual development, superb technical capabilities, working as part of teams, communicating well and understanding the economic, social and environmental impact of development.
Attracting an ethnic and social diversity of students that better reflects the diversity of our country and taking full advantage of the nation's talents.
Experimenting with new approaches to curricula, rethinking rational teaching modes and developing innovative ways to recruit and retain students from unrepresented group.
