Warm greetings to all students and faculty members of this institute.
I have joined this institute as a Principal from 1st, June, 2019. Before that I served here as a Professor & Head of Applied Mechanics Department for about four years. Hence I am quite aware about strength and weakness of this institute. The institute has grown by improving quality and quantity in terms of academic activities as well as extracurricular activities in the last decade. But there is always a scope for improvement. Hence with the effort of all students, faculties and staff, we wish to place the institute to the next level of success.
Today the world is accelerating very fast due to rapid technological developments. Hence it is very difficult to impart engineering education in a conventional classroom method. We insist frequent visit to industries, project based learning, innovative way of teaching learning, pedagogy etc. for making engineering education more meaningful and excited. The institute has very good, qualified, sincere and dedicated faculties as well as very well developed laboratories in all courses it runs. Hence students are requested to take the maximum benefits of the knowledge available from the campus for capacity building of the nation.
Due to technological developments, there is boom across the globe regarding reduction in jobs and due to increasing population there is a cut-throat competition. Hence there is a lot of expectation from the society that engineers should become job giver or job creator rather than job taker. Our Hon’ble Prime Minister has also acted on this issue by initiating various missions like Make in India, Digital India, Skill India, Start Up India etc. I urge all engineering students to put sincere efforts to the best of your capacity to succeed in various mission of our Hon’ble Prime Minister in reducing the problem of unemployment. Institute provide all sorts of help in initiating your start up and making you successful entrepreneur. The only thing you need is, to develop out of box thinking, hard work and stop not till the goal is reached.
With Best Wishes,
Prof. (Dr.) B. J. ShahPrincipal Government Engineering College, Modasa.
