I developed a penchant for teaching progressively and subsequently I developed interest in research, learning and self-development
I came to pursue my career in the education field by chance. In fact, I always had zeal to join the IT industry. But, after completion of six months in the education field, my interest automatically developed in teaching and learning, research activities, and self-development. Teaching gives me pleasure and I enjoy it a lot. I am attached to different research activities and developing myself. The education field is the best field to work and enhances your knowledge especially it is best for researchers.
I focus on skill development, bringing in innovation and transforming ideas to reach the organization goals
Being the Dean Academics, I always focus on Skill, Innovation, and then to transform the ideas which encourage my team to achieve the organization goal. Once in every week, I meet all the faculty members to review the work done and track the progress of individual faculty. I meet with all the HODs on a regular basis to decide the departmental goal to fulfill the academic requirement and development of the department which includes faculty development programs, student development programs, certification and training etc.
I also try to meet each faculty member and other staff members individually to help them personally to achieve objectives. This transformational leadership helps my team to achieve goals and improve the overall quality of our work.
The curriculum meets industry standards and we will soon commence with advanced research programs to boost the knowledge of the students
We are running programs as per the industry requirement and we will soon start an advanced program which will be suggested by industry for direct employment. Our plan for marketing is to deliver quality education to develop the skill, innovativeness and research ideas; our students automatically promote our brand. Along with this we promote through social media, social activities and newspaper advertisements.
There is indeed a significant difference between the Indian and foreign education system
In my experience the Indian education system has a strong position in the international education system. India has many universities that are running a variety of courses in different domains and generating huge manpower which is adapted globally.
Large number of students came to India every year from different countries for their study and learning. Indeed, there is a significant difference in the education system when compared with the foreign countries, but we can fill this gap by students and faculty exchange programs, also we can conduct online classes for our students from foreign universities.
We provide a quality education at an affordable fee structure which benefits every student
We welcome students of different backgrounds and assure them of their education as well as career growth.
We are focusing on the study of business, commerce, engineering, management, pharmacy and other specialized areas. Our mode of teaching is in English and we conduct special classes for English, Aptitude, Personality development, and focus on those students who are weak in English. We also provide training and certification for development of skills in students. We are offering quality education in an affordable fee structure for every income group.
We are intending to create a pedagogy which will develop technology and management leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs
In the coming ten years, we will develop the Shivajirao Kadam Institute of Technology and Management, Indore as a model Institute scattering knowledge across India. We will create a different teaching learning pedagogy which will help to develop the skills in students and create the technology and management leaders, innovator and entrepreneur.
My vision is to provide quality education through academic excellence and innovation
My vision for the college is to provide quality education through academic excellence & innovation and develop the skills in faculty and students. So, students can get good job offers or can start their own business and give the jobs to others. For the same I play my part to ensure the quality of lecture delivery, monitoring of faculty & student’s performance, faculty & students development activities, research & development & academic planning.

Continuously updating and bridging the gap between the industry and academia is a challenge
The biggest challenge is to create the processes, motivate the faculty and students. It is very challenging to find the trained faculties. Providing the internship in industry is challenging. Bridging the gap between industry and academia is a challenge but we are able to fill this gap up to certain level.
