JOBS for all the GTU Graduates:
During the last few years, Gujarat Technological University (GTU) has succeeded
in winning a high reputation. The other technical universities, in our nation, now
consider GTU’s work as a benchmark, to be followed for improvement in the quality
of technical education. This positive perception has helped our graduates, to some
extent, in getting better placements. Now during this year, let us focus on using
this positive perception for systematically securing good jobs for our graduating
students of 2016.
The effort has to be made at every single College, wherever it may be located in
What will it take to do it? -- Nothing more (or less) than hard
and sincere work jointly by the management, Principal/ Director, Faculty Members
and the students. More specifically—
Let us see that we follow our calendar
religiously and let us jointly make every single hour in every class, laboratory
and workshop a useful, and as far as possible an interesting, learning experience.
We all know our weaknesses – of the Colleges, Faculty Members as well as those of
students. But jointly we can overcome them. If a single hour is found to be not
useful, the method should be not to start missing the classes. Instead the good
students should work, jointly with the Faculty Member, to see that, in future, the
hours start providing a better experience. We should jointly resolve not to give
up but to make it happen.
In particular, at under-graduate level, a Faculty Member, in any
College, will have the competence to be able to work with the students to improve
the learning experience. The course-work at the under-graduate level is not so onerous
that any student, if he makes the necessary effort himself/ herself along with help
from his/ her class-fellows and Faculty Members, cannot learn it well. It also requires
commitment from the Head of Department, the Principal and the management to see
that every single class, from day one of the semester to the last day according
to the University calendar, is engaged.
GTU has been working jointly with industries through GTU Innovation
Sankuls (Every College is a Member of the Sankul in its area.). It has been working
with the students through the GTU Innovation Clubs, Open Source Technology Clubs,
Mobile & Wireless Technology Clubs, S4 Extension Centers etc. (Students at every
College are required to have these active forums.) GTU’s Faculty Development Program
is the largest such program in the country. -- Each one of these enhances the quality
of learning experience. But none of them can do wonders if the classes, laboratories
and workshops are not made useful and interesting and if the discipline and regularity
are not as good as at the best of universities of the world.
India needs good technologists in all the different fields of technology.
Let us, therefore, work to graduate excellent technologists from all our different
Colleges. Let us work together. We can change the situation for the better at every
College within this academic year. Let us do it
