My penchant for teaching and passion for administration keeps me motivated
I feel fortunate to be a part of the educational field. I have worked in various positions, both as a technical teacher and as an administrator in this sector. It is my passion for this sector that led me to take an opportunity. I love to be around students when they are growing into great citizens of India, and I always contribute to their growth.
I analyse and assess the situation to make sure that everything is driven in a positive direction
I believe in leading by example. I am an engineer myself and know exactly the challenges faced by students in their 4 years course. I connect to them very well as an Alumni, and they look up to me to guide them. It not only helps me to get insights of the ongoing scenario in the institute, but helps me to make things better in a lot many ways. Every educator and administrator plays a part in leading tomorrow’s future. It is about taking responsibility for meeting the objectives of the institute and inspiring the team towards their goals. I assure that all members of my team are well experienced and fulfil their assignment.
It is imperative to develop skill sets continuously to rise up to the challenges that changes every day
Developing the human resources on a continual basis is very important for an institution to rise up to the challenges that changes in industry and economy pose, and to sustain amidst competition with relevance to current needs. The institutions should make sure more and more students get placed in the companies every year with a good salary package.
We make sure to update our curriculum to meet the evolving needs of the industry
We customise the syllabus according to the fast-evolving industry needs. We give extra support to students by conducting seminars, field trips, project expos, and training sessions on new technologies, like Bloch chain, IoT, AI, and more. We also follow very high standards in terms of having the best teaching staff and technical equipment.
We believe in diversity and welcome every student from different ethnic backgrounds with open arms
VCET School provides a loving and caring environment which enables students and staff alike to grow holistically and feel accepted. No one is left to fall behind as everyone is offered a genuine helping hand. We welcome with open arms any students who have different needs and who have difficulty in reading, speaking and writing. Our college mainly supports those below poverty line or poor backgrounds and will not collect additional fee like Lab deposit/Library deposit or any other fee. Our college follows secularism, unity in diversity.
Students should invest their time in developing a versatile personality
Regularly monitoring the student’s attendance, performance, accumulated backwardness, counselling the students and parents are the responsibilities of an Institution. Also, students should be more focussed on academics without wasting the valuable time. What they become and what they do in the future is majorly dependent on academics. So one should not spoil their future and stay focussed towards the goal.
Every bit of contribution will count in the development of the institution
We do regular campaigning, advertisements, conducting competitions at lower class level. Today we are in the fast-growing developments globally and our responsibility is to provide education blended with latest technologies in the fields technology and all the vital engineering and science, Management concerned areas. Every bit of contribution made by the students of this Institution will make it significant and achievable for the growth of global technological advancement. I believe that during the four years engineering course of any other PG Courses, we have to strive hard to meet the challenges ahead of us. The facilities offered in the institution are the embodiment of intellectual maturity of high standard. The Lecture Halls are provided with LCDs and overhead projectors.
Students should take advice from experienced professionals before taking a career decision
Talk to your heart and choose a career path by learning from your seniors. Commit yourself to excel in it. Don’t look for immediate security. Don’t look for shortcuts. Remember that you are a member of society first, and then a professional. I believe patience is one thing that the new generation lacks. I advise them to choose their career after analyzing, researching and consulting the experienced individual and then select a perfect path. In this rat race and a desperate need for the youth to be recognized and appreciated in social media and other circles, they have damaged their physical and mental health. There is a high chance that they will burn out soon and cannot live a happy and healthy long life. I suggest them not forget their roots.
