In Conversation with Mr Satyendra Sharma
DEAN: STUDENTS WELFARE
NOIDA INSTITUTE OF ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY
Mr Satyendra Sharma, Associate professor, Department of Electrical & Electronics, Dean: Students Welfare has completed his BE from IEI Calcutta, M.Tech from UP Technical University, Lucknow and Pursuing PhD from NIT Kurukshetra.
He has been working in this institute since September 2002. He is an Ex-Indian Air Force Officer, who has served at different units for various type of radar and communication for 17 years.
He has guided two advance projects made by the students of the NIET, one of which reached NASA (USA) and the other was for the police department of India to disclosed hide outs of terrorists.
TIF: NIET has been ranked at position 3 amongst all colleges of the MTU, also the college stands at a top position in Greater Noida, What is you take on the progress of the Institute being the DSW and the senior most faculty member?
DSW: As your question is very correct, the 1st thing in bringing the college to the top level is that we need the cooperation of students, modest way of teaching, covering syllabus through latest techniques and motivating students from all angles.
If these four points can be correlated then the position of the college as well as the moral of the students can be brought to any level
TIF: Talking about reputation and making your college turn into the best in the field; many colleges in India have started converting themselves into private universities, what is your take on that? Does NIET have any such plans?
DSW: In fact in future NIET is also having plans to convert into a deemed university, already the strength of the students is more than in a deemed university, almost 400- students are studying across 7 courses which is more than a deemed university, but according to the principles of NIET, we don’t want to convert into a deemed university just to earn money but to provide a better practical approach with latest features.
TIF: Sir, but don’t you think that colleges which have converted into private universities have majorly lost their standard?
Yes colleges have lost their standards actually by seeing the condition neighboring colleges which have converted into private universities, we have observed that they have a lack of experienced faculty, labs and the intake of students is majorly on the basis of money and not merit and hence the standard is low.
TIF: What steps do you take as the DSW to ensure an overall development of students?
DSW: NIET is running on 3 principles- “punctuality, dedication, devotion and at any cost NIET is not going to deviate from these 3 points, but considering the demand of the competition and present scenario, we believe that getting education contributes only 50% towards excellence and rest comes from activities, so along with educational curriculum we try our best to implement extracurricular activities at various levels.
TIF: Sir, being a student here for the past one and a half years now I have observed a very few activities taking place here, don’t you think that NIET is an academically overstressed and over disciplined college?
DSW: it is over stressed due to university curriculum, we have to cover a huge curriculum in a very short span of time, and hence it becomes essential for us to keep academics at a top priority
TIF: Thank you so much sir, for giving us your valuable time, it was great talking to you.
DSW: The pleasure is all mine.
