IIT-H grads snap up hefty pay packs

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/c...w/11299199.cms

The first batch of B Tech students of the city's new tech institute, IIT-Hyderabad that will pass out in 2012, has bagged some of the heftiest pay packages offered to IITians this year. The placements for the first batch started on December 2.

A final year computer science student has got a Rs 35-lakh per annum job from a Japanese software company, Works Applications. Not just that, about half-a-dozen students of the institute have bagged pay packages ranging between Rs 15 lakh and Rs 20 lakh so far from Indian companies.

The institute's placement officers said that so far 40 of the B Tech batch of 111 students have got jobs. The pay packages offered to them by Indian companies range between Rs 6.5 lakh and Rs 20 lakh. Over 60 companies have participated in the recruitment drive.

Students from the computer science stream have walked away with the honours with 80% of the jobs offered by the companies having been bagged by them. The institute offers B Tech courses in three streams including computer science, electrical and mechanical engineering.

Officials said their recruitment drive will be open till April, 2012. "Within four weeks of the drive we were able to place a total of 90 students from both the B Tech and M Tech batches. We believe that by the end of the drive we will be able to place almost all the students," said G V V Sharma, faculty incharge, placements, IIT-H. A total of 167 students from B Tech, M Tech and MS chemistry will be passing out in May, 2012 from the institute.

This is the first massive recruitment drive of IIT-Hyderabad, which was established in 2007.

This year a mini recruitment drive was done for the first batch of M Tech pass outs where about 16 companies had participated. "We are expecting more companies to come in with offers in January," Sharma said. Some of the companies that have come for placements so far including software companies like Microsoft, TCS, and Cognizant.

Interestingly, even for engineering streams that are less popular including electrical and mechanical, several recruiters have come to take in students, officials said. Top recruiters of students from the electrical stream include AMD, Xilinx and Nividia. Recruiters for the mechanical stream include Bharat Petroleum, Indian Navy and Mahindra and Mahindra. Recruitment officers, however, said that for students of some streams in the M Tech batch, placements have not taken off quite well. Several students of M Tech, Chemical, Civil and Material Sciences courses are still waiting for jobs, officials said.

"Some recruiters have placed a handful of these students. But in the coming months we will try to get all of them placed," an officer said.

Quote:
HYDERABAD: Andhra Pradesh State Council of Higher Education (APSCHE) chairman P Jayaprakash Rao has said that the council was considering making it mandatory for students to apply for Eamcet only through online.
The APSCHE had introduced the system of applying online last year, but it was not made mandatory.

All candidates who want to pursue MBBS and MBA have to take Eamcet and ICET respectively for the next academic year.
However, the chairman said there would be no changes in the examination pattern of Eamcet examination. Rao said candidates have to be present at the exam centres much before the commencement of the exam and they would not allow them if they are late by a minute.
The APSCHE chairman said they would also announce the dates of Lawcet and PECET (Physical Education Common Entrance Test) after January 12.

IIIT to develop tech for converting speech into SMS

Source: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/t...w/11535722.cms

Quote:
HYDERABAD: City-based International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) is set to develop a mobile technology that would accept speech as input and convert it into language and text, which can be sent as an SMS, a top functionary of IIIT said.

According to Rajeev Sangal, Director of IIIT, the project, which has been funded by the Ministry of Information Technology, will be ready in the next two years.

"You can talk to the mobile phone. Suppose, anybody does not know reading or writing, they can dictate the phone the SMS, which they would like to send. They should be able to speak it out and then the phone will convert it into text and send it as a message," Sangal told PTI.

According to him, seven other institutions are currently working on this project.

Sangal said, the technology will be useful in mobile phones, which have smaller screens and keyboard, making it difficult to type letters.

The speech lab of the IIIT aims to develop robust speech systems for applications, such as speech translation, phonetic engine for Indian languages, speaker recognition for biometrics, and dialog systems in speech mode, a senior faculty member said.

'Common entrance test for BE courses likely'

Source: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/c...w/11574708.cms

Quote:
HYDERABAD: Central and state universities in and around Hyderabad have entered into an agreement to share their research and development facilities. D Purandeswari, human resource development (HRD) minister of state on Friday announced that a mechanism for interaction between central and state universities in the city will soon be set up to facilitate this. The project will be extended to other universities in the state within a period of three months.

The minister was speaking at a media conference in the University of Hyderabad after a three-hour meeting with bureaucrats, educationists and vice-chancellors of universities in the city.

Referring to the statement made by HRD minister Kapil Sibal a few months ago, Purandeswari said that a nation-wide common entrance examination for engineering courses might be conducted in a couple of years. "By 2013, before the central government announces the common entrance exam for engineering students across the country, we want to bring in a national common syllabus at 10+2 level for science, commerce and arts. Weightage will be given to 10+2 marks in the entrance exam," Purandeswari said.

The minister said that heads of universities in the city have agreed to cooperate to establish a close-knit network among them to provide joint courses and degrees for students. Institutional partnership will also facilitate credit transfer from one university to another, she said.

Purandeswari said that the university heads have formed two committees to implement the agreement. "The first committee will facilitate communication among the central and state universities in order to utilize infrastructure, research facilities and expertise jointly. The second committee will oversee a public outreach programme which will be taken up by universities to carry out research and provide solutions to the problems in the communities surrounding their campuses," she said. Within three months, the minister will convene a meeting of other universities in the state. The agenda of this meeting will be to hold regular interactive sessions between heads of institutions to identify areas of collaboration.

She also spoke about increasing the retirement age of professors in state institutions.

"The central government has directed state governments to up the age limit of professors to 65 years as against the current age limit of 60 years. Although the state government has opposed the implementation of this rule, the central government insists that this should be enforced citing a 40% shortage in faculty in institutions of higher learning in the country as the reason. The state universities will have to come to a consensus and implement this rule," Purandeswari said. Talking about improving the quality of education in state universities, the minister said that the UGC has sanctioned a one-time grant of Rs 5 crore for the development of new universities in the state.

The state is also going to witness major expansion of educational sector with many new institutions coming up here, she said. As announced in the central government's budget-2008, a world class university will come up in Visakhapatnam, Purandeswari said. She also informed that an architectural university will be established in Vijayawada . The minister said that even an IIM for the state is on the cards.

Meanwhile, just outside the venue of the press conference, the joint action committee of the non-teaching staff of University of Hyderabad held a protest against the decision of the UGC to cancel two schemes which came into effect in 2008. As per a UGC directive, the executive committee of UoH had decided a week ago that the non-teaching staff of the general and technical cadres, who got out of term pay increase, will now have to pay back the amount they got as salaries within the next three years. The staff is currently facing recovery pay cuts between Rs 10,000 and Rs 15,000, the protesters claimed.

IIT-H students jostle to take Kalam course

http://ibnlive.in.com/news/iith-stud...45-60-121.html


Never has there been a subject in such great demand because of the faculty teaching it, rather than the syllabus itself! Over 700 students at the Indian Institute of Technology, Hyderabad, had applied for what is called the fractional credit course.
The reason: It will be taught by none other than former president Dr APJ Abdul Kalam. In the end, only 124 were lucky enough to have been ‘taught’ by the missile man. Titled ‘empowering 3 billion’, the fractional credit course at the institute has been a big draw this semester.

The illustrious teacher took the first class on Tuesday. “It is the first batch of students who were introduced to this fractional credit course. The scientist sent across a message to students ‘to be a unique you’,” said Dr Faiz Ahmed Khan, Dean (academics).
The Vision 2020 proposed by Dr Kalam as his dream for a better country was the chief topic of discussion with the ex-president encouraging youngsters to dream and to work towards realizing their dreams. The students were divided into 10 teams of 12 members each which proposed innovative methods for Providing Urban Amenities to Rural Areas (PURA) - a strategy envisioned by Kalam for rural development.
Some of the interesting ideas proposed during the presentations by each team which focused on a single pillar of Vision 2020 include an online voting system which would allow people to cast their polls using their Unique Identification Numbers. “Since most of the people who do not cast their votes are educated and have ready access to internet, a parallel system of online voting will allow everybody to exercise their franchise without excuses,” says Gopinath Raja, a student of the team which proposed the idea.
Also, a system for inter-linking villages for local energy generation and self-sufficiency introduced novel development models. Though no one knows the method of evaluation which will be used to grade the course, for once the students seem to be enjoying the process of learning. “The class felt more like an interactive session and most of us were awed by Dr. Kalam’s humility.
He spent a good day and a half with us and sat through our presentations for 10 hours straight,” says Gopinath. A Facebook favorite in IIT Hyderabad, the students are looking forward to three more sessions with the scientist and statesman

ITIs escape job gloom

Source: http://business-standard.com/india/n...-gloom/464041/

Quote:
Top management and engineering colleges may be struggling to place students this year, but industrial training institutes (ITIs) have no such worries. Most of them have seen almost 100 per cent placement on campus despite the uncertain economic scenario.

Talk to a cross-section of ITIs across the country and the response is the same. ITI Andheri in Mumbai or the one in Bhimavaram in Andhra Pradesh say their score is a perfect 100 per cent. Others such as ITI Karjat have improved their placement score to 93 per cent against 88 per cent in the previous year.

At ITI Bhimavaram, nine companies including Coromandel International, Hyderabad, Ashok Leyland, Chennai, Hindustan National Glass & Industries, Naidupeta, TVS Fasteners, Madras Rock Well Industries, Hyderabad, EFCO Hyderabad, Synergies Castings, Visakhapatnam — came on campus for placement.
“There is a shortage of ITI candidates in the market. In engineering, if you need one candidate, you will have 20 available. But when it comes to a trained ITI professionals, you will not find many,” said SB Raju, chairman, Institute Management Committees (IMC), ITI, Bhimavaram. ITI charges a fee of Rs 120 per year which can also be paid in installments.

Experts say increase in the interface between companies and ITIs is also responsible for the improvement in placements.

At Mumbai-based Rustomjee Academy for Global Careers, which has three ITIs functioning under it, companies are invited on campus to be part of the teaching process level and thereby assess students.

“It is about getting the company involved in the process so that they know where the student stands. It is a technical school which is hands on. We believe that if companies say they do not find talent which matches their requirement, we should get them involved,” says Kavi Luthra, vice-president, Strategic Alliances at Rustomjee Academy for Global Careers.

Companies including, Shapporji Pallonji, BE Billimoria, Tata Motors, Four Seasons, Ashok Leyland, etc, participate in the placement process at the ITIs.

The institute also asks companies to come to the campus and give motivational talks to students. “Recently, a company directly picked up five students who are now drawing Rs 10,000-plus per month. Many companies have started recommending our institutes to other companies,” adds Luthra.

Not surprisingly, seats at these ITIs are also in demand. For instance, at ITI Karjat, which is handled by Rustomjee Academy, 1,112 applications were received for 404 seats in 2011. Similarly, the academy's ITI at Andheri received 801 applications for 249 seats. It received 93 and 100 per cent placement at its ITIs at Karjat and Andheri respectively.

As a pilot project the ITI has organised entrepreneurship lectures for all the students at ITI Khar. “We identified seven students out of 200 who have shown courage to start their own enterprise. We are also helping these students to generate funds from a Venture Funding firm, Sun Apollo,” added Luthra.

Career Launcher's CL Educate, which has around 21 ITIs under it — 15 in Punjab and 6 in Karnataka — has seen 100 per cent pass rate. The company in its institutes at Punjab charges a fee between Rs 2,000-3,000. The fee is a state subject, and move as per what the state decides.

“Today, we have got a 100 per cent pass rate. We have done a lot of advocacy exercise with the local community. We have a number of textile industries around and these companies come and pick up students. Many of the ITI passouts favour self employment. There is a case for entrepreneurship and micro financing here. This will lead ITIs to excellence,” says Sanjay Shivnani, President & CEO, Vocational Education Training, CL Educate.

The impact of the placement boom has been significant. For example, Satish Mungeka has just gifted himself a new cellphone which he bought from his first salary. A recent pass-out from an ITI in the interiors of Maharashtra, Mungekar recently bagged a job with an engineering company at a salary of Rs 10,000 per month. This when his family's annual income was Rs 25,000 per annum.

Ditto with Datta Tare, a students living in the interiors of Karjat, Maharashtra, who after completion of two years of hospitality management from the local ITI has been selected in the Food Production department of Four Seasons Hotel, Mumbai, at a monthly income of Rs 8,000 per month. His family's annual income is Rs 30,000.

Enter the Dragon

There is little doubt that the economic balance of power has tipped eastwards in the past decade. In fact, the future business school of choice may not be in Massachusetts, London or Barcelona but in Shanghai, Hyderabad or Singapore

By Matt Symonds

The Chinese 'Year of the Dragon' is reckoned to be a year for great deeds, innovative ideas and an advantageous time to begin new projects. Judging by the latest ranking of full-time MBA programmes by the Financial Times, business schools in the region were paying attention.

Three schools from China made it to the top 100 for the first time, with the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) jumping in at number 28, to join Hong Kong UST and Shanghai's CEIBS in the world's top 30. Schools from Singapore also feature prominently, with the National University of Singapore making a dramatic entrance at number 23, with Nanyang Business School close behind.

There is little doubt that the economic balance of power has tipped eastwards in the past decade. The harsh reality for the West is that the most exciting business opportunities of the next decade may emerge on the other side of the world, which raises the question whether the balance of world intellectual power may also be shifting. And the future business school of choice may not be in Massachusetts , London or Barcelona but in Shanghai, Hyderabad or Singapore.

Chinese Market

After two years of working as a supply chain project manager in Shanghai, Rahul Bagde felt that he still didn't understand China that well. He applied to CEIBS, and has spent the last 18 months deepening his understanding of the country's business environment. "The combination of international faculty, an extensive alumni network, and guest speakers with insight into the Chinese market is invaluable. I am at a sweet spot where I want to spend this decade in China, which will help me for the following decade of Indian growth."

Consistent GDP growth of between eight and 10% presents its own challenges for the next generation of globally-minded Indian professionals. "Managers cannot rely on their own experience to keep up with the pace of change," says Didier Guillot, director of the OneMBA programme at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK). "They want global thinking, regional perspectives, and insights that point to new trends and developments. We are committed to help them update their business and management knowledge, stay at the forefront of innovation, and build a career at the global level."

Demand of OneMBA and other top MBA programmes in the region is certainly on the rise. Score reports for the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) used by business schools as part of the candidate selection process, indicate that in the past five years the number of applicants from China, India, Hong Kong and Singapore sending their test scores to schools in these countries has increased by an impressive 229%. At CEIBS, the percentage of non-Chinese students studying in the full-time MBA programme has increased from 2% in 2005 to 39% in 2011.

And with six to 10 applicants for every place on the MBA programme , the top schools in Asia are matching the admissions selectivity of Harvard and Wharton, admit tedly with considerably smaller class sizes. If the GMAT is any indication of student smarts, these schools can claim to attract a bright talent pool. Though not quite on a par with the likes of Stanford GSB, whose average GMAT score last year was 731, schools in Asia are edging closer, with a GMAT average around the 700 mark.

Cost Factor

With growing concern that the tuition fees at many two-year programmes in the US are reaching unsustainable levels, a select number of schools in Asia make a strong case for an affordable top-tier MBA with an excellent return on investment . Graduates at Peking University this year reported a 201% increase over their pre-MBA salary. The 50 graduates in the university's BiMBA programme , run jointly with Belgium's Vlerick Leuven Gent Management School, were offered positions by over 250 companies across a wide range of industries, including JP Morgan, AIG, Apple , Tata TCS and LVMH. With tuition and living expenses in these 18-month programmes at less than half the US equivalent, these schools are opening other career doors, rather than closing them.

As might be expected , a growing number of Western business schools are responding to opportunities in the region by setting up their own campus or teaching location . INSEAD, Chicago Booth and ESSEC are now well established in Singapore, Western Ontario-Ivey has made a second home in Hong Kong, HEC Paris has entered the Beijing market, and Duke University's Fuqua is developing a campus in Shanghai. Such expansion provides these schools with their own direct access to Asian MBA recruiters, offers students a handson Asian learning experience, and provides faculty research and case study opportunities in the world's most dynamic regional economy.

Hyderabad An Overview of the Educational Legacy

Source: http://www.articlesbase.com/college-...y-5661401.html

Quote:
Hyderabad has been a centre of renowned colleges of India which enjoy world ranking. Colleges like the ISB (Indian school of business) rank within hundred of all the colleges in the world. There are many other colleges in Hyderabad which not only fall under the world ranking within 500, but have been a legacy in bestowing education in Hyderabad. These colleges include the name of BITS Pilani.

Colleges in Hyderabad include two universities. There are six state universities and three deemed universities in the city. Amongst the old universities are Maulana Azad national University and B.R. Ambedkar University. Other universities would include Jawahar Lal Nehru Technological University and International institute of information technology.

For higher studies in law Hyderabad has NALSAR (National academy of legal studies and research). There are some research institutes in the city like Indian Institute of Chemical Technology and Centre for cellular and molecular biology. All these colleges in the city exhibit international standard infrastructure and hence allure students from all over the world and not just India.

Let's discuss about admission process of some of these hyderabad colleges. Starting with ISB, ISB is a business school and it conducts its own examination for admission. Apart from that it also accepts GRE and GMAT scores. Actually ISB is the only college in India which provides proper Business Management graduate degree. Rest all business schools in the country provide only a diploma degree for the business management. The students selected through the GMAT and GRE scores need to have a working experience of at least three years. GMAT is the global examination which is conducted to select students only in the management domain. GRE passed students are selected, are those who want to pursue research work in the fields related to management. GMAT and GRE scores are not the only tests that an international student needs to pass to get into ISB, there is another test called TOEFL, which is a test for English language. Indian students however, might not need to take this test.

The other college which has a very tough admission process is BITS Pilani. Amongst the colleges in Hyderabad, this is an undergraduate college. But to even apply for this college, one needs to have a GPA of 8 and above out of 10 or percentages above 80%. This percentage is demanded in the initial process of admission which is form filling. But the cut offs are secured by students who have been declared rankers in their class 12th examination. Mostly students having percentages above 95% are able to pass through the admission test of this college. hyderabad Universities and colleges provide the golden chance to make their career bright and successful. When the course is finished, it fetches jobs to the students with lucrative salary, which is why the cut off percentages of this college shoot up to sky.

Apart from ISB IPE is also a business college in the city. IPE is also amongst the premier colleges of the country. All the colleges of Hyderabad which are mentioned here amongst the premier colleges of India, and conduct very tough admission processes, reason being they want to select the premier minds of the world to provide best education.

Professional colleges shy away from fee hike

Source: http://ibnlive.in.com/news/professio...83-60-121.html

Quote:
HYDERABAD: Though many professional colleges in the state have been verbally demanding a hike in tuition fees, when it came to following a Supreme Court direction of submitting their income and expenditure reports in this regard, 90 per cent colleges shied away.
More than 60 institutions and professional college management associations had filed a bunch of petitions in the Supreme Court seeking a direction to the state government to increase the tuition fee according to the increased expenditure in the past few years.
Following this, the Supreme Court directed the college managements to submit their income and expenditure reports to the Admission and Fee Regulatory Committee (AFRC). Based on this direction, the department of higher education issued a notification on February 9 asking the college managements to submit audit reports for the years 2009-10 and 2010-11 along with the income and expenditure reports of the current financial year until January 2012 and gave a deadline of February 17.
With the deadline ending on Friday, the AFRC informed the Andhra Pradesh State Higher Education Council (APSHEC) that they have received only 300 applications.
Speaking to Express, APSHEC secretary P Sathi Reddy said that the Supreme Court will consider an increase of tuition fee for only those colleges which submitted proper reports to the AFRC. He added that out of the 3,166 professional colleges in the state, which includes 710 engineering colleges, 283 pharmacy, 625 MCA, 958 MBA, 365 M-Tech and 225 M-Pharm colleges, 2,866 colleges did not submit any report to the AFRC.
However, leaders of the Engineering and Professional College Managements Association alleged that many college managements feared to submit the report as they were asked to submit the previous two years’ audit reports as well.
Association secretary general KVK Rao said that the Supreme Court had asked the colleges to only submit the income and expenditure reports but the higher education department unnecessarily complicated matters by asking them to submit two years’ audit reports as well.
