The HT Cam­pus Call­ing se­ries, con­ducted re­cently at the Army Pub­lic School, Noida, con­cluded suc­cess­fully with a Be­yond DU coun­selling ses­sion which was ini­ti­ated by HTCampus in as­so­ci­a­tion with Manav Rachna In­ter­na­tional Univer­sity. The coun­selling ses­sion was at­tended by stu­dents from all streams such as arts, science, medicine, com­merce, man­age­ment, an­i­ma­tion and de­sign and mass com­mu­ni­ca­tion. The panel speak­ers set the tone of the event by giv­ing in­sights into a stu­dent’s life, what should be a more im­por­tant de­ci­sion – course or col­lege, cit­ing ex­am­ples on how a col­lege is iden­ti­fied by the stu­dents it pro­duces.

Present on the oc­ca­sion were pro­fes­sors, lec­tur­ers, and deans of re­puted pri­vate in­sti­tu­tions in Delhi NCR. The event was opened with an ad­dress by Alok Jain, co­founder of Ca­reerCo, who em­pha­sised on the im­por­tance of be­ing aware of one’s strengths and weak­nesses. He said it is im­per­a­tive that a stu­dent re­alises where his/ her in­ter­ests lie, so that they can have pas­sion in what­ever they do, to be truly suc­cess­ful.

He was fol­lowed by Prof BS Gill, as­so­ciate di­rec­tor, FET, Manav Rachna In­ter­na­tional Univer­sity. Prof Gill, talked about the scope of en­gi­neer­ing as a ca­reer, de­scrib­ing the multi-facets and the var­i­ous per­fect com­bi­na­tions that the en­gi­neer­ing field has to of­fer. He said ‘Me­chan­i­cal en­gi­neer­ing is the mother of all en­gi­neer­ing sciences.

Dr Shobha Kul­shrestha, dean of AAFT, took over the podium and shared in­for- ma­tion on ex­cel­lent ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties in the fields of cin­ema, jour­nal­ism and multi me­dia. She said that the field is full of ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties, what with thou­sands of jobs gen­er­ated for mass com­mu­ni­ca­tion grad­u­ates across var­i­ous facets of me­dia/ jour­nal­ism. It’s just about time that stu­dents start iden­ti­fy­ing their pos­si­bil­i­ties in the wide spec­trum of op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Dr Anil Sarin, dean of Manav Rachna In­ter­na­tional Univer­sity stressed on the im­por­tance of self as­ser­tion and self- be­lief over any man­age­ment course and said that it is the key fac­tor in de­ter­min­ing a stu­dent’s suc­cess or fail­ure. He also ad­vised stu­dents to check the cred­i­bil­ity of course af­fil­i­a­tion and course ac­cred­i­ta­tion by recog­nised govern­ment bod­ies, lest they are duped into believ­ing ev­ery­thing that an in­sti­tute prom­ises.

Amit Dua, AGM, Maya Acad­emy of Ad­vanced Cine­mat­ics, was the fi­nal speaker of and event and he ex­plained how the field of an­i­ma­tion, al­beit new, had taken over the mar­ket to­day. Ev­ery­thing from films, ad­ver­tise­ments and even ini­tia­tives by IT and other com­pa­nies were us­ing mod­ern an­i­ma­tion tech­niques to cre­ate brand pres­ence to­day. In that sense, the reach of an­i­ma­tion and de­sign, be it gam­ing or films have a much wider reach and ap­peal to­day, he said.
