first_imgTech Mahindra ventures into the field of higher education with the launch of a premier engineering institute in Hyderabad.Tech Mahindra, part of the Mahindra Group, will enter the higher education sector from this year with a premier engineering institution by signing a three-way collaboration involving the Mahindra Group, Ecole Centrale,Tech Mahindra ventures into the field of higher education with the launch of a premier engineering institute in Hyderabad.Tech Mahindra, part of the Mahindra Group, will enter the higher education sector from this year with a premier engineering institution by signing a three-way collaboration involving the Mahindra Group, Ecole Centrale Paris, a 185-year-old prestigious institute of higher education and research dedicated to engineering, and Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad. Mahindra Ecole Centrale (MEC), spread across a sprawling expanse of 130 acres, aims to train engineers to become innovative entrepreneurs. “Quality engineering education is the single most powerful intervention that the industry requires right now to bridge the gap between demand and supply. Considering the high percentage of un-employability in engineering graduates that persists in India today as a result of this gap, we need institutes which work on the Industry-Academia relationship model.Mahindra Ecole Centrale (MEC) would lead this effort,” says Professor Sanjay Dhande, Founder Director, MEC. Getting Creative MEC will offer specialisations in Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering and Computer Science Engineering. MEC also plans to add a course on creative sciences along with the routine engineering schedule to provide a liberal arts angle to an otherwise rigid engineering academic framework. Creative sciences would be included in the schedule by introducing students to the craft of filmmaking through multimedia presentations. “In the process of teaching students film and language/aesthetics, I hope to stir up some of their social concerns and channelise them into some form of narrative – be it poetic, dramatic or even through plain documentary.advertisementThe MEC curriculum also encourages students to appreciate the beauty of literature and make sociological enquiries behind the rules of society and technology at large,” explains Professor Hariharan, Director of the Creative Sciences Department, MEC. Research Driven MEC is committed to support a strong research vision in areas such as Energy, Environment, Communications, Infrastructure, Transportation, Materials and Defence. “We aim to develop an R&D culture inside the institution engaging internationally reputed research scholars as faculty members; and will construct state of the art R&D laboratories for the purpose of research work across many thrust areas.Going forward, we expect MEC to become a seat for research in India. Research at MEC aims to develop innovative solutions which could go some way in addressing some of the most troubling issues in the world today, from addressing the energy needs of tomorrow to improving cancer therapies. MEC’s research efforts are enhanced through creative collaborations with leading research institutes and consortia around the world,” said Professor Didier Clouteau, Dean of Academics, MEC when asked about the institute’s plans to foster research tie-ups for greater collaboration between faculty and students.In a message to prospective students Professor Sanjay Dhande says, “Go where no one else has gone before into the future! And be fully prepared with the right knowledge, the right tools and capabilities, both from a technological as well as business perspective, to be leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs. We would want to see MEC as the finest in its class in Asia, one of the best in the world and for it to emerge as the leading next generation engineering talent provider for India and the rest of the world, growing in repute as a research driven and industry focused institution with branches across the country.” Going Green MEC has set up state-of-the-art facilities across a 30 acre campus that has been designed to provide students a modern lifestyle.The predominantly green campus even houses a zoological park with select flora and fauna. With luxurious dorms and suites, sports and recreational facilities and dining areas that serve the best of global cuisine, students can enjoy a world-class education. Well Connected MEC can boast of having the most advanced scientific infrastructure to help faculty and students keep abreast of the latest industry trends. Besides connected class rooms, laboratories, a computer centre, library and prototyping facilities, every faculty member and student will have access to the latest equipment and information on site. The entire campus will be connected using both wired and a wireless communication backbone and classroom technologies such as SMART Board interactive systems.Admission Process 180 students will be admitted through a strictly merit-based selection process. Applications are invited from students who have cleared their IIT-JEE mains and secured a ranking not greater than 1,50,000 or have obtained an equivalent SAT score. They would have to go through an application process followed by a personal interview round before selection.www.mahindraecolecentrale.edu.inadvertisementMEC aims to emerge as the leading next-gen engineering talent provider and be known as a research driven institutionlast_img read more

first_img  Dr. Chang said he was convinced that if given the opportunities, “students from these communities can rise to the occasion and (play) their part in making (Jamaica) a better nation.” Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation, Hon. Dr. Horace Chang, says education and training are key to Jamaica’s attainment of sustainable growth.  Noting that there was no substitute for a good education, Dr. Chang said he was encouraged by the growing number of students pursuing tertiary education. Story Highlights Minister without Portfolio in the Ministry of Economic Growth and Job Creation, Hon. Dr. Horace Chang, says education and training are key to Jamaica’s attainment of sustainable growth.He argues that while the Government will “do all that is required” to spur greater economic growth, this will not be optimally realized “unless we (continue to) educate and train our people.”The Minister was delivering the keynote address at an awards ceremony hosted by the University of the West Indies (UWI) Western Campus in Montego Bay on August 24.Noting that there was no substitute for a good education, Dr. Chang said he was encouraged by the growing number of students pursuing tertiary education.The Minister said he was particularly impressed that a significant number of students from communities deemed marginalized in North West St. James, for which he is the Member of Parliament, were embarking on this endeavor. He presented several of them with bursaries during the ceremony.Dr. Chang said the bursaries, funded through provisions from his Constituency Development Fund, were intended to assist students “who have done well and need some assistance to move on to tertiary institutions.”He said the assistance was extended because “I know how challenging it can be…because of economic (constraints and other factors) to get a college education.”Dr. Chang said he was convinced that if given the opportunities, “students from these communities can rise to the occasion and (play) their part in making (Jamaica) a better nation.”For his part, Jason Bowen, a native of St. James and past beneficiary of the bursary assistance programme, expressed gratitude for the intervention which he said helped him to complete his medical studies at the UWI.“I have to give thanks (because) I really don’t know what would have happened had I not gotten this level of assistance. All I can say to students (is), it doesn’t matter where you are from or what your circumstances are…you can do it,” he stated.last_img read more

first_imgRussell A. Neverdon, Sr.According to the director of the Baltimore City Board of Elections, the first draft of the 2014 general election ballot (Nov. 4) was due Aug. 22, and Russell A. Neverdon Sr. is still fighting to have his name included on it as a candidate for Baltimore City State’s Attorney.On Aug. 25, attorney Edward Smith Jr., filed paperwork with the Circuit Court of Baltimore City on behalf of Neverdon, a veteran Baltimore defense attorney who has been running an independent campaign for the State’s Attorney’s office.According to the Neverdon campaign, a judge has been assigned the case and the office of the Attorney General will represent the city Board of Elections. A pre-trial conference was set for this week.Neverdon claims he collected 5,686 petition signatures, which would be significantly more than the 4,160 needed for him to be included on November’s general election ballot along with the winner of the June 24 primary for state’s attorney, Marilyn J. Mosby (she handily defeated the incumbent Gregg Bernstein by almost 10 points).However, Board of Elections director Armstead B.C. Jones Sr. has declared only 3,099 of the signatures collected are valid.State election law requires names on a petition to exactly match names on voter registration rolls and each name has to be dated. According to the Board of Elections about 500 of the submitted signatures were names of people not registered to vote in Baltimore City and another 300 signatures were not dated.After Jones determined Neverdon was a little more than 1,000 signatures short, Mosby essentially declared victory in a tweet on Aug. 15.“The verification process has (been) completed and I’m confident in BOE’s (Board of Elections) analysis. Our democracy has played out and I’m excited about next steps,” Mosby said.Despite the ruling of the Board of Elections and Mosby’s declaration of victory, Neverdon presses on.“We’re going to challenge the constitutionality of it and some of the other discrepancies and put it in the hands of the court. But, at the same time that does not challenge the fact that I’m still a candidate,” Neverdon said. “The question becomes whether your name appears on the ballot and that’s what the signature campaign was about, getting my name to officially appear on the ballot,” added Neverdon who said he is not averse to continuing his candidacy via a write-in effort.The veteran defense attorney says he agreed to stay out of this year’s Democratic primary in an effort to prevent splitting the Black vote in the race to unseat Bernstein. He says he doesn’t regret the decision.“The (overarching) goal was to give Baltimore a chance, that if they wanted change that they could do it and I felt that with two candidates challenging the same person…there was a good chance that would have ended up being the result, the vote would have been split,” Neverdon said.  “I thought it was in the best interest of Baltimore City to… make sure that didn’t happen.”last_img read more

first_imgKolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today remembered mountaineer Chhanda Gayen, the first civilian woman from the state to summit Mt Everest, on her birth anniversary. Describing the mountaineer as “brave”, the chief minister said that her courage may become an inspiration for everybody. “Fondly remembering the brave mountaineer Chhanda Gayen on her birth anniversary. In her memory, the Bengal Government has instituted the Chhanda Gayen Bravery Award for successful mountaineers. May her courage inspire us all,” Banerjee wrote on her Twitter handle this morning.
