Tread­ing Where Pure Ed­u­ca­tion Rules The Roost

Business Sphere - - EDUCATION - By Our Cor­re­spon­dent

Be­ing in­volved in the field of ed­u­ca­tion is truly a re­ward­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Such surely are the sen­ti­ments of the Manag­ing Com­mit­tee of Su­ra­j­mal Me­mo­rial Ed­u­ca­tion So­ci­ety (SMES) which spear-leads the ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tutes at C-4, Janakpuri, New Delhi since 1999 and has its cam­pus spread over eight acres of land with serene and eco-friendly en­vi­rons of Janakpuri in New Delhi The So­ci­ety is also in­volved in run­ning Ma­ha­rani Kishori Devi Girls School (2200 girls) in Bikaner (Rajasthan) and Ma­haraja Su­ra­j­mal Pub­lic School (700 girls and boys) in Shamli (U.P.) since 2005; and is also into set­ting up of an only girls school in Jha­j­jar (Ba­hadur­garh, Haryana) for which con­struc­tion is in full swing. Ma­haraja Su­ra­j­mal In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy (MSIT), an or­gan of SMES, of­fers 4 years’ reg­u­lar cour­ses in B.Tech. (Com­puter Science & En­gi­neer­ing – 180 seats), B.Tech. (In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy – 120 seats), B.Tech. (Elec­tron­ics & Com­mu­ni­ca­tion En­gi­neer­ing – 180 seats) and B.Tech. (Elec­tri­cal & Elec­tron­ics En­gi­neer­ing – 60 seats) has ap­prx. 2200 stu­dents study­ing presently. This col­lege was es­tab­lished in 2001 af­ter get­ting the green sig­nal from AICTE and is af­fil­i­ated to the Guru Gobind Singh In­draprastha Uni­ver­sity in Delhi. Ma­haraja Su­ra­j­mal In­sti­tute (MSI), an­other or­gan of SMES, is run­ning pro­fes­sional cour­ses with 2160 stu­dents is an­other feather in their cap. MSI of­fers Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion course (Gen) (1st Shift) (180 seats); Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion (Gen) (2nd Shift) (120 seats); Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion (B&I) (1st Shift) (60 seats); Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion ( B&I) (2nd shift) (60 seats); Bach­e­lor of Com­puter Ap­pli­ca­tion (1st Shift) (120 seats), Bach­e­lor of Com­puter Ap­pli­ca­tion (2nd Shift) (60 seats), Bach­e­lor of Ed­u­ca­tion (sin­gle shift) (100 seats), Bach­e­lor of Com­merce (Hons.) (sin­gle shift) (60 seats). The col­leges’ fee struc­ture is fixed by the State Fee Reg­u­la­tory Com­mit­tee of the Delhi Govern­ment and ad­mis­sions are on the ba­sis of Com­mon En­trance Tests con­ducted by GGSIP Uni­ver­sity. The en­tire in­fra­struc­ture in the in­sti­tutes is as per norms and re­quire­ment of AICTE/ UGC and GGSIPU. Even the salary of teach­ers is af­fixed as per the same stan­dard of reg­u­la­tions. About 300 staff mem­bers ex­ist on the per­ma­nent ros­ter in both the col­leges. Says Mr. Ajit Singh Choud­hary, Sec­re­tary, proudly, “Most col­leges

run due to com­mer­cial mo­tives, but not ours. We ac­tu­ally wish to give the best of fa­cil­i­ties and ed­u­ca­tion to the stu­dents.” Other head hon­chos re­spon­si­ble for run­ning the ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions in­clude Mr. S.P. Singh (Pres­i­dent) who is an M.A. and L.L.B. from Delhi Uni­ver­sity. He re­tired from the In­come Tax Depart­ment in 2001. Mr. Kap­tan Singh, Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent, is an En­gi­neer from Roorki Uni­ver­sity and a re­tired Chief En­gi­neer from Ir­ri­ga­tion Depart­ment, Lucknow. Chor­tle out this ed­u­ca­tion­ist trio that they wish to “set up our own Uni­ver­sity and open cen­ters of ex­cel­lence, not shops for ed­u­ca­tion.” MSI ranks num­ber 5 at all In­dia level in the pri­vately man­aged in­sti­tu­tions cat­e­gory as per The Times of In­dia’s Sur­vey for BBA Pro­gramme. The Depart­ment of Com­puter Science En­gi­neer­ing, and In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy of MSIT’s ed­u­ca­tional ed­i­fice is equipped with a pro­gram­ming lab, data­base man­age­ment lab, soft­ware en­gi­neer­ing lab, data struc­ture lab, ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence lab, al­go­rithm anal­y­sis and de­sign lab, ob­ject ori­ented pro­gram­ming lab, web en­gi­neer­ing lab, com­puter net­work lab, com­puter or­ga­ni­za­tion and ar­chi­tec­ture lab, in­ter­net and project lab, and a mul­ti­me­dia lab. The Depart­ment of Elec­tronic and Com­mu­ni­ca­tion En­gi­neer­ing has the Ana­log Elec­tron­ics Lab, Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Sys­tem Lab, Telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion Net­work Lab, Mi­cro­pro­ces­sor Lab, Dig­i­tal Cir­cuits and Sys­tem Lab, Mo­bile Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Lab, Con­sumer Elec­tron­ics Lab, Con­trol Sys­tem Lab, Op­ti­cal Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Lab, VLSI Lab, Dig­i­tal Sig­nal Pro­cess­ing Lab, Mi­crowave Lab and an Em­bed­ded Sys­tem Lab. The Depart­ment of Elec­tri­cal and Elec­tron­ics En­gi­neer­ing has the Power Sys­tem Lab, Elec­tri­cal Science/Cir­cuits & Sys­tem Lab, Mea­sure­ment & In­stru­men­ta­tion Lab, Elec­tri­cal Drive Lab, Elec­tri­cal Ma­chine Lab, Soft Com­put­ing Lab, Ad­vanced Con­trol Sys­tem Lab, Power Elec­tron­ics Lab and Uti­liza­tion of Elec­tri­cal En­ergy Lab. The Depart­ment of Ap­plied Sciences too has a num­ber of lab­o­ra­to­ries and work­shops. In ad­di­tion, the In­sti­tutes of­fer a cent per­cent place­ment for its cour­ses. Some of the com­pa­nies which come for place­ment here in­clude Ama­zon, Wipro, HCL, In­fosys, Ac­cen­ture, TCS, IBM In­dia, Gen­pact, MetLife, Aon He­witt, Ari­cent, Yamaha Mo­tors, Lib­sys, Adobe, Bri­tish Tele­com, Tommy Hil­figer, SAP Lab, De­liotte, Musigma, Newzen, Vivo, Pinker­ton, Lu­min­ious and oth­ers. Re­port­edly, even Mi­crosoft comes here dur­ing its place­ment drive. Ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties like sports, tech-fests, cul­tural evenings and an­nual day are cel­e­brated with a lot of pomp and live­li­ness. The prime­time USPs of the col­leges are “it has the best of fac­ulty and in­fra­struc­ture along with main­te­nance of strict dis­ci­pline and a strong sup­port from the man­age­ment.” The So­ci­ety (SMES) also pro­vides schol­ar­ships to stu­dents with ru­ral back­ground on the ba­sis of merit-cum­means and has of­fered schol­ar­ship worth Ru­pees Twenty Lakh this year for the stu­dents study­ing var­i­ous pro­fes­sional cour­ses. Till date the So­ci­ety has dis­trib­uted cheque worth Rs. One Crore Forty Five Lakh as schol­ar­ship to the needy stu­dents to ful­fill their dreams of pur­su­ing higher stud­ies. The same is the tra­di­tion be­ing fol­lowed by both the In­sti­tutes run­ning un­der it. In 201617, MSIT pro­vided schol­ar­ship worth around four lakh ru­pees whereas MSI pro­vided the schol­ar­ship worth around Ru­pees three lakh ru­pees to the mer­i­to­ri­ous stu­dents. The Man­age­ment of the So­ci­ety has been awarded the Di­a­mond Eye Award for To­tal Qual­ity Com­mit­ment in Ex­cel­lence in Ed­u­ca­tion from OMAC, a very highly re­puted Paris-

based in­ter­na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tion in 2011. MSIT has also been awarded the Out­stand­ing Tech­ni­cal In­sti­tu­tion Award for 2014-15 by the Na­tional In­sti­tute of Tech­ni­cal Teach­ers Train­ing and Re­search ( NITTTR) un­der the aegis of the Min­istry of Hu­man Re­sources De­vel­op­ment of the Govern­ment of In­dia. In ad­di­tion, SMES has been given three awards by the In­dian Ed­u­ca­tion Coun­cil for con­tri­bu­tion to ex­cel­lence in ed­u­ca­tion in 2015 (SMES Pres­i­dent was given the ‘Glory of In­dia’ award; the Direc­tor- Place­ment was given the ‘Bharat Sam­man Achieve­ment Award’. The place­ment cell was given the ‘Best Place­ment Cell in a Group of In­sti­tu­tions’ award). The so­ci­ety runs with a vi­sion of ‘de­vel­op­ing new par­a­digms in higher holis­tic ed­u­ca­tion in in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy, man­age­ment, e-busi­ness, cul­tural and na­tional val­ues lead­ing to stu­dent em­pow­er­ment with an in­cli­na­tion for cre­ative, aes­thetic and co­he­sive group func­tion­ing in the global sce­nario.’ Also, the mis­sion state­ment is ‘to work to­gether to release the in­her­ent in­tel­lec­tual, so­cial and emo­tional ca­pac­i­ties of all stu­dents who pass through the gates of this in­sti­tu­tion.’ This so­ci­ety was es­tab­lished in 1972 and is reg­is­tered un­der the So­ci­eties Reg­is­tra­tion Act 1860. The prime­time motto around here is to ‘dis­sem­i­nate qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion in the tech­ni­cal and pro­fes­sional ar­eas, es­pe­cially those ben­e­fi­cial to the stu­dents from ru­ral and hith­erto ed­u­ca­tion­ally-de­prived sec­tion of the so­ci­ety.’ It is cer­tainly a highly grat­i­fy­ing kind of an at­ti­tude when the main aim be­hind run­ning a suc­cess­ful ed­u­ca­tion so­ci­ety is dis­burse­ment of ed­u­ca­tion for the sake of ed­u­cat­ing classes and masses. This seems the un­der­ly­ing ethos of the en­tire en­vi­ron­ment at this place; which is a trail­blaz­ing and a hall­mark achieve­ment, no less. In ad­di­tion, when it is qual­ity and not quan­tity of stu­dents which rules the roost, it adds a cer­tain amount of fine fiber in ef­fec­tive op­er­a­tions to the whole vibe of the in­sti­tute. This too, is a sureshot fea­ture of the ba­sic struc­tur­ing of this or­ga­ni­za­tion. In essence, Su­ra­j­mal Me­mo­rial Ed­u­ca­tional So­ci­ety is a very trust­wor­thy kind of a rock-solid So­ci­ety in its cho­sen arena of op­er­a­tions. And its suc­cess story is one which is cred­it­wor­thy and speaks vol­umes of sheer hard work and ded­i­ca­tion.
