Ideal school environment as per Dr. Vikas

Learning and overall development of student personality and providing proper facilitation is the ideal academic environment. All the students are encouraged to participate in all academic co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.


How to manage time at this position

For me, I follow this simple step - Do the task that can be done by oneself and is meant for you or delegate the task to someone appropriate. Make sure to take regular follow-ups for the delegated task. Managing time becomes easy when you love your work.


Goals for the department in the coming years

I want our department to nurture in terms of faculty and I want it to expand it in India and abroad. We aim to provide the students with better placement and internship opportunities, in a national and international organization.


Suggestions to the youth and aspiring students

All I have to say to them is to - Be open to technology, trends and have an awareness of cross domain knowledge. Mathematical and computational aptitude is always a plus advantage. Be connected to society and address the issues with your engineering knowledge wherever required. Also, never be disheartened by failures and keep working towards your goals!
