He was speaking at the inaugural function of Bharatiyam 2016 - a two day national level technical festival organized by Bharati Vidyapeeth University College of Engineering, Pune. The Inaugural Ceremony on 19th February, 2016 witnessed the distinguished presence of Chief Guest Dr. Omkar Rai, Guest of Honour Mr. Ajit Hardikar, Associate Vice President, Corporate Manufacturing Engineering and Projects at Kirloskar Oil Engines Ltd, Chair Person Dr. S. F. Patil, Executive Director, Research and International Affairs, Bharati Vidyapeeth University (BVU), Mr. Sanjay Kumar Gupta, Director, STPI, Pune, Dr. M. S. Sagare, Joint Secretary, BVU, Dr. M. S. Prasad, Director, ICT, BVU, Chairman of Bharatiyam 2016 Dr. Anand Bhalerao, Principal and Dean, BVUCOE, Pune and Prof Sandeep Vanjale, In-charge, Bharatiyam 2016.
In his speech Dr. Omkar Rai said that as India is embracing culture of innovation and entrepreneurship so graduates need to enhance innovative thinking out of the box and beyond boundaries. He said what the nation needs today is job creators rather than job seekers. We need to create the ecosystem and regulated environment for ease of entrepreneurship. . He further added that India is already the undisputed leader in outsourcing business but lags in product creation. He said that every direct job in IT will create 3 indirect jobs. Hence we need to concentrate on production in IT and electronics sector. Explaining the kind of future in IT and electronics he said if we are able to manufacture 300 million dollar worth electronics goods in India then we can create 228 million jobs in the country itself and we would no more require to go abroad in search of jobs. He said that even if we produce engineers and train them well we do not have enough number of jobs. For this it is important that young engineers create jobs rather than seek job. Today the statistics are that every year we have 8 to 9 lakhs of Computer and IT engineers but only 4 Lakh jobs. The gap of 5 Lakh jobs needs to filled by start-ups. STPI started when the government dared to dream that India will develop in IT field. The development can be seen from contribution of IT sector in GDP raise from 1.2% in 90s to 9.5% in 2014-15. Also IT contributes to 25% of total India’s exports, employs 3.5 million engineers and creates 3.5 Lakh jobs every year. The exports in IT domain have also increased from 500 million dollars in 90s to 98.5 billion dollars in 2014-15. He said that India has also moved up in the value chain as we are home to most R&D and innovation. This can be seen that India has 800+ start ups in year 2014-15 alone. In order to create such job creators it is imperative that Universities, Centre of Excellence, Learning institutes enhance idea of competitive and innovative thinking, creativity and challenge students to dare to think. This is exactly what institutes like BVUCOE are doing through forums like Bharatiyam. He concluded his speech by saying that he calls upon all graduates and teachers to create such forums across the country and it would be a great service to the nation.
Prof. Dr. Anand Bhalerao, Principal BVUCOE, and Chairman of Bharatiyam 2015, presented his introductory speech in which he informed about the glorious tradition of Bharati Vidyapeeth University and the various noteworthy rankings and accreditations credited to University and BVUCOE for its quality education. He said that in early 90s when there was no common dias for students to present technical abilities and creativities. At that time BVUCOE was the first engineering college to introduce the concept of techfests. And it’s this vision that BVUCOE is seeing today 27th Bharatiyam. Such continuous innovative practices in the teaching-learning process has led BVUCOE to rank 3rd in the private T-schools as per survey by Data quest and 36th T-school as per survey by Times of India.
Process, quality and customer orientation is the key focus of today’s industry- said Mr. Ajit Hardikar Associate Vice President, Corporate Manufacturing Engineering and Projects at Kirloskar Oil Engines Ltd. He was speaking on this occasion as Guest of Honor. He shared his view on how academicians play an important role in bridging the gap between teaching and industries. He said that today’s most important requirement is skill development. He said that everyone seeks a white collar job but no one seeks a blue collar job. He said that it’s the blue collar jobs in fact that enhance the learning curve and bring out creativity and out of box thinking. He said that this gap can also be minimized at the teaching phase if universities of institutes can depute their teachers at industries frequently for exposure to industry and increase 5the logical interaction and problem solving. He suggested the students gathering that instead of starting careers as a small person in a big pool of MNC, they should start working with their own hands at production level. Instead of taking pride in their job as a person, they should try to contribute some value addition to the industry. He concluded his speech saying that instead of doing projects or trainings as a part of academics they should undergo it thoroughly as a learning curve.
The Chairperson of the inaugural function Dr. S. F. Patil, Executive Director, Research and International Affairs, Bharati Vidyapeeth University (BVU), Former Vice chancellor BVU and North Maharashtra University also stressed on industry academia collaboration in his speech. He said that BVUCOE has showcased the inherent talent, creativity and innovation in budding engineers from years together. He said that forum like Bharatiyam takes innovation and creativity in young engineers one step ahead and supports the “startup India”. He also supported Mr. Ajit Hardikar’s views on creating industry university collaboration. He said that colleges need to go beyond publications. They should convert these publications to patents and incubation centers. If young and senior people come together in a sympotic relation then it would works wonder in education and industry he said. He concluded saying that India is 3rd largest in manpower but 10th in production. This rank would go up if and only if we dare to think innovative and creative and Bharatiyam with its tagline “dare to dream” is one such platform for doing so he said.
