PowerPoint Presentation: 

Vital / Critical / Central Role of TPO in a Campus

Some Existing Conceptions about R&D : 

Some Existing Conceptions about R&D Research is meant for National Institutes / IITs / Aerospace Organizations only Expected work of a college is teaching & evaluating There is no direct connect between Campus “Research” and “Employability” When we want to do research in campus management has to spend lot of money

Some Existing Conceptions about R&D : 

Some Existing Conceptions about R&D Research can be used to improve teamwork and industry-acceptance Research can be used to improve learning methods Research can bring funds / infrastructure to the colleges Research can be fun / exciting and get student & faculty involvement

November 2011 @ IIT - Chennai “ TRANSEE” : 

November 2011 @ IIT - Chennai “ TRANSEE ” Transform the students into industry-acceptable workforce IIT Research Park – Industries & Research Labs - ~ 180 colleges from many states ( AP / TN / Kerala / MP / Bihar / Chattisgarh / Delhi /Orissa / UP / Gujarat / Maharastra etc.) Superior learning methodologies – Technical / Soft skills Innovation & Entrepreneurship Campus Research Good Quality Student Projects TPO Connectivity – Professional Associations Institutional Brand Building Placement is “not solo destination”

What are the results Held interaction sessions with students / faculty and gave them guide lines and provided mentoring / vital inputs Many students were listening to me for the first time in their lives Generally it was ½ Day meeting Till date more than 2.50 crores of research funding (DST / DRDO / AICTE / NP MICAV / ARDB / BRNS / IE / AESI) has been sanctioned to 18 colleges due to this mentoring – Ranging from 0.75 lakh to 45 lakhs A few colleges have started Research Centres and sponsored high quality student projects

Research Grants Profile: 

Research Grants Profile Several areas of significance (Micro Air Vehicles, Robotics, Sensors, Embedded Systems, RC Vehicles, Solar Devices, Nano Technology, Wind Energy, Product Life Cycle Management, Knowledge Management )

Numerous Government Funding Agencies :

NASSCOM Report – Employability of Indian Engineering Graduates Only 4.2% of graduates are fir for product companies + 17% in IT services . The intake of non-engineering graduates in IT / BPO sectors is on rise Big challenge for Tier2 – Tier 3 colleges or New Colleges

Bridge Programs (Value Adding Programs or Weekend Programs) : 

Bridge Programs (Value Adding Programs or Weekend Programs) Identify the Gaps & Take Proactive Steps & Make Learning Exciting Students learn 70 subjects in 8 semesters Gaps ( Cloud Computing / Digital Manufacturing / Mobile Applications / Unmanned Surveillance Technologies / Hybrid Energy / Micro Nano Technologies ) GAPS do EXIST Design Programs & Seamlessly Integrate without “IMPOSING” on students

Digital Manufacturing : 

Digital Manufacturing More than 500 companies in India use this ( Tata Motors / DRDO / ISRO / Maruti / Titan / BHEL / Mahindra / Infotech / Big Tech etc) 15 Hours session – Theory / Hands-on / Design / Produce The System would be brought to your campus All branches are welcome – Just flair for design Introduction to R&D trends / Faculty & Student
