The first talk of Leadership Talk series was delivered by Prof. Anil Sahasrabudhe, Chairman, AICTE on the 16th of December 2016. The talk was live streamed from 2.00 pm in the college auditorium with the teaching and non-teaching staffs along with students from all departments of the college attending the live session.
Throughout the talk, the Chairman of AICTE mentioned about the multiple schemes adopted for the welfare of students, faculty and institutions. He also mentioned that a platform is being built by AICTE to connect directly with students and faculty to engage with them and to further enhance the outcome and impact of AICTE’s various initiatives.
Recently, AICTE had undertaken multiple novel initiatives like creating the Startup Policy, Smart India Hackathon 2017 and Project Swayam which could benefit faculty and students immensely. On 16th Dec 2016, for the first time, AICTE launched ‘India’s Idea Leadership Talk Series’ over Facebook Live. During this talk series, AICTE invited renowned personalities from various fields and gave all the students (even in the remotest part of India) the opportunity to listen to them and interact with them through social media.
Later, in the session Mr. Abhay Jere, the Organizing Committee Secretary of ‘Smart India Hackathon 2017’ conducted the awareness programme. The live session proved very informative for all the participants.
