FROM THE CHAIRMAN'S DESK
Shri J. C. Sharma (Chairman)
Knowledge – A fluid mix of experience, value, contextual information and expert insight provides the framework for evaluating and incorporating new experiences and information. It originates and is applied in the minds of knowers. In organizations, it often becomes embedded not only in documents or repositories, but also in organizational routines, processes, practices and norms true to this sense, this issue of JIGYASA brings to you an account of the events and activities that took place at the institution, bringing to me a feeling of fruition of the events and programs envisioned in the earlier semester. Indeed, there is so much to share and feel proud of. The panoramic glimpses of the vibrant and fecund events are entwined into its pages which speak themselves for the thrusts, learning dimensions and developments that took place in the semester gone by. The very objective of education at IITM is to stimulate the thinking process so that the students and other stakeholders form independent views to take emancipated and virtuous decisions discriminating between right and wrong. We take our teaching profession as a social responsibility, contributing our entire mite to build a new vibrant India. I am very expectant that the Institute – the faculty, staff and students, as a whole, shall constantly strive for more and more excellence in every field they explore in the sundry realms of life.
FROM THE DIRECTOR’S DESK
Prof. (Dr) Rachita Rana (Director)
It is heartening that Jigyasa embodying consciousness and awareness is coming up with yet another issue. As Jigyasa kindles and rekindles a feeling of exploration and delving deep into everything around. Symbolising the intrinsic spirit, the institution aims to be a centre of excellence promoting value based quality education in emerging areas of professional studies and attempting, in all earnestness, to touch dizzy heights. It is good news for the IITM fraternity that the institution has progressed in terms of its national accreditation, infrastructure upgradation, software program enhancements, students and faculty exchange programs, number of courses taught, guest lectures, interactions with industry and developmental programmes, the mainstay for any incremental process. Preceding semester enlists various management and Information Technology workshops and seminars. We feel honored to be associated with Southwest University for Nationalities, China, for students and faculty exchange programs. It is a feeling of immense pleasure and pride for me to release this issue of JIGYASA. This newsletter with added dimensions will brighten up our readers about various co-curricular and extracurricular events, creative and imaginative expressions of our staff and students. While we feel proud of our achievements; we still have a long way to go. It will be our utmost endeavor to maintain and sustain the trajectory of growth of our institute.
