Mr. Aggarwal’s outlook on education industry
Education acts as a groundwork in developing one’s personality and mind. It helps an individual to understand their responsibilities towards society. With education, one can transform conventional ideas into more rationalized and experiential learning.
Additionally, with the advent of technological advancements, quality education has become the need of the hour. It aims to provide equitable learning tools to all children without any discrimination. There is no doubt in saying that imparting quality training to the students, adds up to the general/comprehensive advancement of the nation.
Leadership Style and philosophy
As per my understanding, the philosophy of leadership is a set of beliefs and principles where one can evaluate information and respond to people and situations in a proper way. Before making any decision or taking any action, I always consult with my team, and by doing so, it makes them feel special and consider themselves as a part of this entire process. This also motivates them to work even more harder and devoted towards the institution and the students.
Enabling world-class education at RRIMT
My experience till date makes me feel that the first element that a student lacks is communication skills. While we are imparting the curriculum exclusively designed by the industry experts, we simultaneously work on their skills like, communication skills via our personality development program as well.
In the present-day scenario, the market is full of competition, recruiters look for a full package in a student. They want them to be street smart, confident, smooth communicator and many more skills. At RRIMT, we make sure inhabit these qualities in the students by organizing separate sessions. With this, we also provide them with hands-on experience with latest technologies. All of this, makes them a well aware and prepared for the global market.
A plethora of opportunities at RRIMT
Every year, RR Group of Institution organizes 3 ‘Mega Job Fairs’ with around 150 National and International companies arriving to recruit students from B.Tech, MBA, and Polytechnic.

Hurdles faced as Chairman
Being the Chairman of this college, I have many ups and downs, but what bothers me the most is the casual attitude of the students. My generation was disciplined and was taught to spread knowledge. But, now discipline among students is rarely found which hampers their growth and limits their capabilities.
A note on building relationship with students
A student and teacher share a consecrated relationship which cannot be broken. One needs to maintain the same while dealing with their problems. Positive teacher-student relationships draw students into the process of learning and uphold their desire to learn.
Being an administrator, it is my duty to render a positive environment among the students. For this, I am always available in my office to guide the them. Apart from this, the institute organizes various activities to boost the morale of the students to participate in start-up initiatives.
Transform Dreams into Reality- Goal for the Institute
The institute aspires to impart quality education, which will help in producing competent professionals. The future of the institute is in the hands of the students who will transform the institute into a stronger and developed stature.
Suggestions to the young generation
Discipline is the key determinant in a student’s life, and there’s no stability without it. A person with proper goals is more focused and keeps up to work on time in everyday life. My advice to the younger generation is to maintain a systematic lifestyle which will help them to achieve their dreams quickly. They must follow their passion while choosing a career. Also, it is necessary to realize the importance of time to be more productive and organized.
