    Wish there was a Time-Machine.

    Remarks -

    I feel that every institute evolves with time. The course content, curriculum should be in sync with what the students are actually going to face in the market. Also the program need to have futuristic vision while ensuring that the capability of the students to visualise their careers 5-10 years down the line is improved and clear.
