Published

on

Aiming to find an alternative to alumni base

“We don’t have an alumni base as strong as the older Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs). But you cannot wait for 40 years to reap that benefit… so you must innovate and reach out to new constituents,” assorted Sarit K. Das, director of IIT Ropar in Punjab.

“Indian diaspora can be (almost practically) your alumni base. What alumni do for older institutions, diaspora can do it for you,” he added.

 

WHY FOCUS ON INDIAN DIASPORA

Das along with some of his colleagues has already visited countries like the UK, Canada, the US, Singapore and Australia in last six months. A bid to reach out to a significant pool of non-resident Indians there. In October, he will visit the UK and Canada again to reach out to the strong Punjabi diaspora.

“We get three benefits. One, Indian Diaspora like your alumni base can help you connect with good candidates to recruit as faculties; two, they can help find good university collaborations and three, they can contribute to specific needs of the institutions,” Das said.

1. Das represents the new breed of education administrators

2. They are finding out novel ways to build their brand equity and reach

3. They are looking to tap unconventional sources like government funds or sponsored projects

4. As per reports new institutions like IIT Gandhinagar and IIT Hyderabad are doing the same

 

TESTIMONIALS 

Sudhir Jain, director of IIT said that IIT Gandhinagar got good support from the diaspora, especially in the US and Japan. Several of the tie-ups for students’ research, institutional tie-up, recruitment and some endowments happened because of non-resident Indians.

Bhimaraye Metri, director of Indian Institute of Management Tiruchirappalli (IIM-Trichy) too shares the common view.

As per World Bank data, India received some $62.7 billion worth of remittances in 2016. In 2015, it received some $68.9 billion.

India and Singapore will sign an agreement for skilling Indian youths in the aviation sector at the Aero India Show next week. Academies will be set up in Bengaluru and other places in India that will act as regional hubs for the training of Indian youths for domestic and overseas jobs in these sectors.

National Skill Development Corporation of India’s (NSDC) Aerospace and Aviation Sector Skill Council in collaboration with Singapore Polytechnic and a Singapore-based private sector firm will signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on February 22 to establish skill development centers.

Aero India show 2019 will be held in Bengaluru from February 20-24. It will provide a significant platform in bolstering business opportunities in International aviation sector.

These ”Centers of Excellence in Advance Skilling” will provide training and certification drawing from Singapore curriculum and standards in sectors such as aerospace and aviation, emerging technologies, automotive and logistics.

“These are all priority sectors under ”Skill India” and ”Make in India” programmes, which require large workforce with advanced technical skills,” India‘s High Commissioner in Singapore Jawed Ashraf said here on Friday.

He said that these sectors also provide more productive and remunerative employment opportunities.

Singapore is a leader in aviation services including maintenance, repair, overhaul services as well as skill development across various sectors, Ashraf said.

This is one of the many collaborations between India and Singapore in the crucial skill development sector following the signing of two MoUs between NSDC and Singapore Polytechnic to establish state-of-the-art Trainer and Assessor Academies across India.

“Skills development is one of the new areas that have gained prominence in the bilateral engagement with many countries, but especially with Singapore, not only at central but also at state level,” the envoy said.

There are several institutional engagements including plans for setting up the first Indian Institute of Skills in Mumbai in collaboration with Singapore‘s Institute of Technical Education Services (ITEES); training programmes for state government officials in public administration and governance; urban planning, logistics and infrastructure development in collaboration with many Singapore-based institutions, including Institute of Technical Education, Singapore Cooperation Enterprise and Civil Service College.

Singapore has also opened three internationally acclaimed Skill Centers in India (New Delhi, Udaipur and Guwahati) and more coming up, Ashraf said.

The World Class Skill Centre (WCSC) in New Delhi has seen hundreds of students clearing the courses in the areas of Hospitality and Retail Sectors with 100 percent employment rate. There are plans to move WCSC to a new site and further expand it, he said.

Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand, Assam and Odisha are also working with ITEES and Polytechnics in Singapore to develop skill centres. Odisha conducted training of 100 officials from ITI in Singapore last year.

“The close ties between India and Singapore have a history rooted in strong commercial, cultural and people-to-people links, reinforced by convergent strategic interests,” Ashraf said.

The relationship, elevated to a Strategic Partnership in November 2015, has gained a new momentum and direction in last three years, he said.

“The initiatives in skill development taken during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit in 2018 are now showing results,” Ashraf added.
