1) Project eMitra

Placement or meaningful engagement is the ultimate goal of professional education, but of late ENGINEERING has become a general discipline of study like BA, B Com, BBA. On work front, engineers are equally successful in many non-technical professions, but this is either due to lack of inclination for core functions of Engineering like design, research, manufacturing, etc. or lack of mentoring and suitable opportunity to make use of talent and education. While a few securing big packages get highlighted in media, quite a good numbers struggle hard to get a job. The system of education can’t be blamed for the situation. It calls for early awareness, career counseling and self-planning by the incumbents in engineering institutions and aspirants at school level.

  • Professional institutions make best efforts to develop INDUSTRY Links; Industrial training or internship is part of curriculum, but generally not taken seriously; and Training & Placement (T&P) wing of an Institution can’t ensure placement for all.

  • Learning beyond SYLLABUS is recommended by experts and All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) but students have no time for extra-curricular activity.

  • ISPAT Bharti Foundation (http://ibf.org.in) made an attempt to bridge this gap through a FREE, monthly, eNewsletter “Udyog Sanchetana” since April 2014.

  • Project eMitra is an attempt to strengthen this platform to facilitate gainful engagement for all through blogs, interactive meets and links with industry.

2) Invitation to Professionals

Engineering is one of the favourite disciplines of study, though alarge majority doesn’t understand its vast domain of applications in industry, health, agriculture, transport, communication, and services. For success in career, one should be aware of own strengths (S), weaknesses (W), as also opportunities (O) and threats (T). together these are called SWOT in management.

Over dependence on coaching and consultancy to secure high percentage in Board Exams, admission to Engineering, Management, and preparation for GATE is not bad, but one has to learn the art of self-study, SWOT, and career planning, where working professionals and faculty in institutions has the responsibility to mentor the youngsters.

3) Involvement of INDUSTRY

Industry in the small and medium enterprise (SME) segment could play a significant role in the process of human resource development (HRD) as Trainer, Incubator and Employer. This should not be charity by industry but it should have a mission for growth in terms of output, turnover, diversification. That calls for capacity building activity through structured workshops and hand-holding. In the process it helps all stakeholders.

A token annual membership fee of Rs 500/- is proposed and the formats for REGISTRATION are as appended. It’s an opportunity for both Freshers and the Experienced persons to be part of this venture as their own Enterprise.
