Warm Greetings to all!.
At the middle of the academic year 2019-20, we have received the good news
about NBA Accreditation to the 3 UG programs (CSE, ECE and ME) for 3 years.
This would not have been possible without the dedication, hardwork and united
efforts of all the staff and students. That is the real achievement of this herculian
exerceise. I thank each staff member, student, PTA member, employer and the
higher authorities who have contributed to our success. As our institution has
now crossed the adolescent stage in its lifetime and is entering into a more
mature age, NBA Accreditation has added to our responsibilities for being an
institution worthy of that stautre.
The placements have picked up this year. But the real achievements at this
juncture are on the IPR domain: Dr AR Jayan, HoD ECE has secured a US patent
for his work at IIT Bombay. Vishnu Murukan, 2018 ME has filed for an Indian
patent, and is being processed. A student project of the 2018 batch ME, led by
Amal Babu and guided by Prof. Anil KB has been shortlisted for the Chathra
Viswakarma Award instituted by AICTE-ISTE-NITI AYOG combine. Two more
patents are likely to be filed this year through the TBI.
On the infrastructure front, the new Boys Hostel and an integrated rural sports
complex have been inaugurated. The second Ladies Hostel has been sanctioned
under KIIFB. Two more hostels are also likely to come up. The work on the
construction of EEE block and Staff hostel has started. A Rain Water Harvesting
system also will come up this year. A master plan to upgrade the institution to a
Center of Excellence has been submitted for the Government's approval. We need
to diligently pursue our academic goals to sustain the good initiatives made.
Research-oriented academic culture has to be strengthened along with nurturing
the startup ecosystem, which alone is the way forward, to reestablish the society's
trust on the academic community.
Wish you all the very happy New Year!
