At the onset my best wishes and warm regards to one and all!!
I feel proud
to have been associated with the Institute in various capacities since its
inception, including my present stint as Principal (Officiating). With more
than two decades of experience of imparting technical education, the Institute
has now grown in number and volume in terms of faculty, infrastructure,
students and activities. The processes and outcome have become more mature,
the presence has become more far-reaching through collaborations and Alumni
While academic discipline is important for the students to score
consistently good in the semesters, it is equally important to explore and
learn technology beyond the syllabus. They must acquire knowledge/skill/certification
on different emerging domains like AI, ML, IOT, Cyber Security, Data Science,
Cloud Computing, Big Data etc. through projects, internships, online certificate
courses of Swayam/NPTEL/Coursera/NASSCOM etc. to make themselves industry-fit
and readily employable. With the active guidance of Swayam Local Chapter
of RCCIIT, record number of our students have done certifications, even
in the pandemic situation.
Three industry-sponsored learning programs namely,
TCS NQT, Cognizant Digital Nurture and Wirpo Talent Next are running presently
in RCCIIT with focus on preparing the pre-final year students for upcoming
placement in final year. Emphasis is given to the coding skills of the students
by arranging special coding class right from 1st year across all disciplines.
A culture of coding and new technology learning is gradually setting in,
which can very well be projected as the USP of RCCIIT. Students are also
participating in great numbers with a good strike rate in national level
industry-organized coding competitions like TCS CodeVita, TCS NQT, InfyTQ,
HackwithInfy, GenC etc.
Besides having academic collaborations with some
Institutes/ Universities of repute, we are always keen to develop partnership
with core industry so that our students and faculty gets industry-exposure
through training, internship, project and R&D while industry gets job-ready
engineers. Recent MoUs with couple of electrical and instrumentation companies
mark the beginning of industry involvement in shaping the future of the
Planned approach is taken up also for escalating Research & Innovation,
Social Outreach & Entrepreneurship endeavours which can play instrumental
role in accreditations and institute ranking.
RCCIIT has been recognized in the band "PROMISING" under the category "Colleges/Institutes (Govt. & Govt. Aided) (Technical)" in Atal Ranking of Institutions on Innovation Achievement (ARIIA) 2021 by MoE, Govt. of India. I hope to see more such achievements by RCCIIT in the coming days.
