Aim to make engineering college students ‘industry ready,’Pan IIT Alumni Leadership Series (PALS), has launched its 2018-19 annual activities. PALS comprisies of alumni from various Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) in the country which offers a year-long program with various activities for students, faculty and management of Engineering Institutions. The objective of PALS has all along been on enhancing the quality of engineering education and making students graduating from these institutions, ‘industry ready.’ To achieve this, PALS has tapped into the vast pool of expertise available within the IIT alumni community across the corporate, academic and entrepreneurial domains.
Speaking on the recent development, Prof M.K. Surappa, Vice Chancellor, Anna University, and the Guest of Honour, said, “The number of engineering colleges has increased exponentially in recent years. However, some of these affiliated institutions have difficulty in imparting engineering education at the same level as some of the top institutions. In the last four years, many engineering colleges have had trouble attracting students and have closed down. Perhaps, a body like PALS can prevent this from happening by focusing on elevating the quality of education.”
College Comparison based on Courses, Placement, Rank, Fee
Being in seventh year, PALS started as a series of motivational lectures given by IIT Alumni at various engineering colleges campuses in and around Chennai. The offerings have grown and evolved into the present format based on the feedback from the colleges, as well as from the changing market needs.
“We now strongly believe an intelligent concoction of a supportive anchor institute, dedicated alumni network and industry can re-create this model anywhere else in our geographical educational ecosystem,” said Mohan Narayanan, Chairperson, PALS.
PALS is supported by IIT Alumni Industry Interaction Centre (IITAIIC) and IIT Madras Alumni Charitable Trust (IITMACT) for the benefit of engineering college students in Tamil Nadu. According to the official, till Academic year 2017-18, PALS has impacted more than 15,000 students and 5,000 faculty across member colleges in Chennai, Trichy, Madurai, Coimbatore and Salem.
PALS’s Benefits for Budding Engginers
PALS now offers holistic 360-degree approach to learning thereby positively impacting Students, Faculty, and Management of engineering institutions. The benefits obtained by the engineering colleges from PALS over the years has been found to be proportional to the interest and involvement shown by each of them in the program. PALS year long intervention includes below programs:
Student focused Initiatives
Faculty Focussed Initiatives
Management focused initiatives
Visit to IIT Madras Research Park
Theory to Practice (T2P) Lectures
Faculty Development Programs (FDP)
Industry – Academia Conclave
Educational Excellence Summit
Residential Student Workshop (RSW)
“We have to empower our current generation coming out every year. PALS is a layer that can be added to the existing system to enable those youngsters who are hungry and eager to learn and want to go in a particular direction. PALS should work to increase the availability of knowledge, mentorship and getting the students to think differently. If we can provide these opportunities to students, whether they are looking to set up startups or are fascinated by research but are wondering how to do it or equip themselves, it will make a huge difference for some people and this is how PALS should measure itself,” said Prof Bhaskar Ramamurthi, Director, IIT Madras.
