Technology driven education is the future of the sector forward
The future is interdisciplinary education. Industries are changing at a rapid pace and so are job scenarios. Machine learning and intelligent automation is going to take over industries sooner than later. Hence the education system is also going through multiple transformations. The curriculum would also evolve in the directions of skill based and application oriented courses. Industry supported courses will take over the current practices and research will drive the industries.
You cannot change your past, but you have the capability to change your future
First and foremost advice is to identify your interest area. Then, go on to select the right course and the right college/University to pursue it. Always try to find out what extra an education institute can offer apart from the normal takeaways. Selecting the right mentor is also very important in the early stages of life. This mentor might be your senior from school, college, your teacher or any industry person. You also need to choose your team wisely. A right mentor, right team/company and right institute will sail you through.

A continuous growth is possible in a continuously changing and adapting environment
I believe in empowerment; empowerment of my faculties and my students. Leadership is always about continuous growth and continuous improvement. It’s not I or ME, it’s always WE and that’s where my belief lies. I would call my leadership style “Hands on”. I prefer to learn and experience the challenges before I delegate. I also believe, once we are hands-on, we can issue right instructions to the right people at the right time. The most important and difficult part for me of being a good leader is “owning the responsibility”. It helps in making a strong and dedicated team and building the confidence level of team members.
We continuously strive to keep pace with technological advancement by organizing sessions with industry leaders and trainings on the same
The evolution of technologies, especially in the field of Artificial Intelligence and automation, and their intervention in almost all the areas is the biggest challenge. But, at IILM Engineering, we continuously strive to keep pace with technological advancement by organizing hands-on training sessions, workshops, expert lectures, industrial visits, joint industry projects, hackathons and project exhibitions etc. We also promote interdisciplinary research and project work so that students get to learn beyond boundaries.
A pool of mentors from renowned institutions like IIT, JNU and AIIMS and Industry mentors are regularly delivering lectures and conducting mentoring sessions with students and faculties to educate them relevant industrial trends and research problems.
The curriculum is designed to give a global perspective and exposure required by the students

Education industry is always struggling to keep pace with Industrial advancements and expectations. At IILM, we have introduced a practice of including the content beyond syllabus. This content covers the latest advancements in the industries, their application and challenges. Depending upon the subject, it can also include research problems and case studies. One more component is also introduced as part of the course curriculum that makes students industry ready by the end of 3rd year.
It is pivotal for to understand the students as each student is different in their own way
In my opinion, each student is different in its own way. We need to focus on individual interest and capability, encourage them to follow their passion. We have to help them in developing the right skill sets, provide them with regular inputs and mentor them throughout. The idea is to make them independent contributors, but at the same time also become a contributing team player.
