  • Teenage student develops mini-oxygen plant in just eight months, all by himself @ PESU Student

    OxiPlant works on the principle of Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA). The device consists of two specially fabricated stainless cylinders, each filled with a measured quantity of a specially made material called Zeolite. Dry, cooled and Pressurized air is alternatively passed through these cylinders. Nitrogen molecules get thermodynamically adsorbed by the zeolite crystals, allowing oxygen to flow out as a desired product. While this principle has been well known for over a century, the challenge lies in engineering a solution around the principle. Building OxiPlant involved mechanical design and fabrication, pneumatics circuits with proper understanding of pressure, temperature and flow controls, and more critically electronics which control, monitor, and automatically operate the entire oxygen production cycle.

    Uniqueness of OxiPlant and its differentiation from commonly available concentrators lies in its Configurability, Flexibility, Scalability, and Monitorability. It is configurable to support many alternate processes such as PSA, VSA, VPSA etc. It is flexible to support production of Oxygen or Nitrogen or other gases. It is scalable to higher throughput up to about 20 lpm. It is monitorable as many temperatures, pressure and flow probes can be hooked up to provide valuable performance data that would form basis of plant tuning.

    Prof. M R Doreswamy, Hon'ble Chancellor, has congratulated Tejas P Karanji on his achievement and encouraged him for more inventors.

  • Expert talk on corporate innovation through finance partnerships

    The role of finance is evolving to enable corporate innovation. Shobana Rajagopal drew from her experience as the revenue controller in Microsoft India and shared her understanding of digital transformation in finance partnerships. Speaking about how COVID has affected industries and its core operations around the world, she observed that acceleration of technology that should have happened in a time span of ten years happened in one year. This probably happened due to the unavoidable circumstances which pushed industries to work on technology and digital transformation as soon as possible. In the context of industrial revolution 4.0, the transformation process involved engagement of customers through products and services with great customer experience, empowering employees by up-skilling them with the newest technologies, optimising operations by segregating repetitive tasks to automated systems and finally transforming products to become more digitally equipped. The process of growth involves hyper scale, hyper flexibility and hyper security. Innovation includes augmented and mixed reality where the objects residing in the real world are enhanced by computer generated perceptual information, machine learning which consists of computer algorithms that can improve experience automatically through the use of data. In the area of finance, statistical models are used to make predictions, detect frauds and provide financial advisory services to the stakeholders. As a result, intelligent products and services have evolved. The technology imperatives in the field of finance include: automation and robotics, data visualisation, advanced analytics and perspective analytics. An example of real time financial info is using MS excel where emphasis is on consumption of data and the best way to deliver insights. Advanced analytics for finance operations is about the optimisation of algorithms and knowledge of tools. Perspective analytics for business and sales operations focuses on the organisational health and the move from telling stakeholders from what happened to what will happen. As stakeholders are resistant to change – the best way to deal with change is to deal with it. In the past financial functions included: book-keeping, payables and receivable, reporting and controls and tax and compliance. In the present situation, it has evolved to be more of strategic planning, treasury and working capital management, capital budgeting, risk management and corporate strategy. Given the example of Amazon, they are doing well in terms of R&D, strategies and business development act as key contributors. Digitalization, adoption of new technology, bots and algorithms are important to stay competitive. Equally important are building a digital financial function with clear vision of expected targets, link to overarching business strategy, bridging skill gaps which is current capability versus modern finance, refining competency models and finally adhering to companies’ securities standards. Reimagining the finance work force in an agile operating model where finance teams can quickly share expertise when needed most is critical to the organization's success. The diverse set of views might deviate a bit but new ideas might spark which would help in the long term. Ms. Shobana Rajagopal, qualified Chartered Accountant and experienced corporate executive delivered the expert talk hosted by department of management studies on February 22, 2022.

Further, Mr Narendra Jadhav spoke about the difference between economic survey and budget. Economic survey is a comprehensive economic document which consists of facts and figures and all about what is happening in the economy. Data regarding government finances, agriculture and other areas are reviewed with all factors and services providing the basis for predictions and recommendations and are not binding. A budget on the other hand not only contains facts and figures but also the other aspects such as political documents. The finance minister synergizes their combination and proceeds with the preparation of the budget. While preparing the budget, there are three main values that are considered: the revised number of the current year, budgeted numbers and the final number for the previous year. Mr Narendra Jadhav also spoke about how India being a developing economy has a fiscal deficit unlike developed economies. Getting into the domestic and global context, factors of grave concern reflected in the budget include: backdrop of corona and the second wave which happened to be heavily taxing for economies and countries, large and unprecedented increase in unemployment rates and elevated levels of inequality. According to reports, 84% of Indian people suffered due to reduced incomes due to prolonged lockdown and the number of billionaires has surprisingly increased. The reports on distribution of national income which is the income of a particular year and national wealth which is the accumulated incomes were examined, and the results show the gap between incomes of rich and the poor, where the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. About the important developments globally: countries suffered a lot due to the pandemic, India suffered more but is also recovering at a good pace; US being a developed country has seen its highest inflation rate in years, it has tightened its monetary policy which has led to rise in interest rates, all of which are bound to have an impact on India. Ukraine and Russia backed by China are facing a likely war. This has resulted in a highly tense situation, which in turn has very serious implications for India. This would have fluctuations in the price of oil and the export promotions wouldn’t be possible. The budget assumptions include price changes due to war and effect on orderly movement of capital. The expected rate of growth was projected to be 8-8.5%, whereas he had his opinion that the growth rate wouldn’t be as much but would be around 7-7.5%. The budget has increased the government capital expenditure and has allocated 7.5 lakh crore for infrastructure, out of which 43.4% is allocated to railways and roadways and a large portion to defense. The strategy is to promote the private sector to invest in infrastructure. The logic here is that, when the government comes in with public investment, it will create more jobs. Mr Narendra Jadhav also spoke about, Azadi ka Amruth Mahotsav, an initiative of the Government of India to celebrate and commemorate 75 years of progressive India and the glorious history of its people, culture and achievements. Mr Narendra Jadhav considered the budget of 2022-23 as a transformative beginning. Mr Narendra Jadhav is an authority on Babasaheb Ambedkar’s life and work. He is a member of the Rajya Sabha. He has previously served on the Planning Commission of India and the National Advisory Council of the government of India. Jadhav has received 67 national and international honours and distinctions, including four Honorary D.Litt degrees from the University of Oxford and the title Commander of the Order of Academic Palms from the French government. Mr Narendra Damodar Jadhav holds a BSc in Statistics from Ramnarain Ruia College of the University of Mumbai and an MA in Economics from the University of Mumbai. He received his PhD in Economics from Indiana University in the United States. The Expert talk on meaning and significance of the latest union budget by Mr Narendra Jadhav was held online on February 3, 2022.

  • Guest lecture on window to career transformation

    It is the need of the hour to be adaptive during this crucial time for the community, industry and business. The guest speaker Saurabh Shah elaborated “Imagine you are the owner of the bank and 86400/- is deposited in your account everyday only for 24 hours. What will you do with it? A wise person would invest on business, shares and on anything that gives back profit as returns. 86400 are seconds of a day. Therefore, every single day we should use it to improve our present status. Where we are today and where we will be soon are the most important matters for one who wants their career to be in a good place. Where we are today on social media, exams, many goals, and parties. Where we will be soon- success, career, earnings, wanting more! Shifting from where we are today to where we will be soon is called Paradigm shift. SWOT analysis plays a major role in one’s self development. The last thing the fish knows about is water. What are we great at? Have you self- validated your thoughts? Do you have a role model in your mind? We must keep questioning this to ourselves from time to time. It is extremely important to have a role model to achieve your current goal. Academic effectiveness: What next? Is it basic? Yes, Basics need to be perfect in the practical world. It is important to relate basic concepts with application. Stay updated on the industry and business. Luckily PES University trains students by solving case studies and research papers based on real time instances of Industries or companies. Concentrating on a final year project is very important as it shows our ability to the firm that is going to recruit you. Communication is everyone's way to build your career. To improve your communication skills, be proactive in career-based activities, understand your communication style and work on it, reach out to people by asking questions and communicate your progress, build your contacts from day 1 and it’s called networking. To have a successful corporate life only you can own and drive your career. Organization provides vision and environment and manager points towards opportunities. Your growth is the breadth and depth of your skills.” Saurabh Shah is Head of Human Resources at Capita, a digital services and software business, delivering innovative solutions. Saurabh is a talent management and acquisition strategist in the technology space, specializing in organizational development, strategic human resource management, campus recruitment, employee engagement and HR process re-engineering.

  • Talk on dark side of corporate governance

    In the fast paced business integrating with the global economy a corporate governance is reflected in not just good environment, eminent board of directors, financial stability but also in constant improvement in quality of goods and services and consumer satisfaction. The rare insight was shared by Robin Banerjee, Managing Director of Caprihans India Ltd who is a Chartered Accountant, Cost and Management Accountant, Company Secretary, and has a master’s degree in commerce. He drew upon the experience of working in key positions with several large multinational corporations in over 20 countries. He focused on the questions of “Were you ever exposed to corporate fraud? Between what is corporate fraud? What is the dark side? What is good governance?” He went on to explain, “Knowingly or unknowingly, you would have seen or participated in any one of the frauds related to corporations as we live around people who are into corruption. Corporate fraud and the dark side are the same thing. They are another face of a good side which is not directly seen by the public.” He illustrated with an example: Restaurant. Yes, you would have noticed a few restaurants which were open a year before pandemic time would have closed within 6-7 months of time by your next visit. What might be the reason? Isn’t it that the restaurants are usually opened by good chefs, political members, one with good funding? It has fallen not because of finance stability but because of poor management or poor governance or SOP (Stand operating procedure). The restaurants which have existed for several years have kept customer satisfaction as their top priority. “Ethics in Corporate governance, the main ethical focus of a company will be satisfying the needs of the customers. Here there will be no chance for fraud. Many Germans based and French based companies are known for following ethics in the corporate governance. Running business ethically, TATA is known for running business ethically. Author had visited the Taj with his friend for a cup of coffee and a sandwich. After a few minutes of delivering the food to the Author the waiter asks for the review. To that the author said that the coffee tasted good while the sandwich tasted bad. The waiter instantly offered a refund for the author. Taj runs an ethical business. When you talk about corporate governance it is all about not to cheat customers, employees, board of directors and to the law.” He described another example: As and when the demand for honey increased during pandemic times, IARI took samples of honey and tested many of the branded honey. To their surprise 11 out of 14 branded honeys were adulterated. They were all well-known big brands which survived the market for years together. He was asked to use honey by most of the people during pandemic times as it is an immunity booster. Now after knowing this he stopped getting other products related to the same honey brand being a consumer or customer. This is a dark side of good governance. “Sometimes I wonder if the international companies are better as people over there do not compromise on the quality of product than people over here.” McKinsey knowingly funded a pharma company which distributed Opium, which is used in small amounts to treat cancer patients as a pain relief) for more than hundreds of people who died using Opium in huge amounts. The case could not be filed on McKinsey as there was no direct involvement of them in the scam, but was asked to pay a huge amount as a penalty. Three things to be concerned about: “Wilful defaulter, Cyber crime and Cryptocurrency. Wilful defaulter refers to the entrepreneur who is not returning the amount taken by the banks even after confirmation by the court that they had borrowed the amount long back. Cybercrime has increased 300-400% every year. People were into con activities more during pandemic times as they had to face financial crisis. They hack mobiles, bank accounts etc. No system in the world is unhackable.” According to the author the cryptocurrency has limited value. The online talk on the dark side of corporate governance was organized by the Department of MBA, RR campus on January 17, 2022.

  • Tuesday Talk on creating impactful LinkedIn presence

    The talk about using LinkedIn effectively by students was delivered by Anmol Garg, popular standup comedian and an entrepreneur. Being a LinkedIn influencer, he believes that LinkedIn can help improve one’s professional career dramatically. For students, a resume is an important part of career growth. Anmol answered the question of how effective a Resume should be for students. Students who do not use LinkedIn effectively are more familiar with Instagram which is used by 99% of people with access to mobiles. Anmol felt that LinkedIn is one’s resume. But this question might arise at the same time “why LinkedIn and no other job-related platforms?”. Anmol observed, “LinkedIn is a platform where people get to know you better than cold connections which can be seen in other platforms. LinkedIn has many similar features as that of other Platforms but it enables rapid networking because it has earned its trust with companies as well as employees.” In the session, one of the attendee’s LinkedIn profile checks was done based on fields of marketing and finance. Anmol was of the view that marketing based LinkedIn profiles should have many valid certificates that show one’s capability. The main reason for usage of LinkedIn is getting a job and further, to create a brand of our own and also to gain followers. Followers are gained by networking which means contacting as many as people on LinkedIn and discussing with them about marketing and by giving value to the content shared on the platform. “It’s all about how well you are connected to people, how many connections you have”. Finance based LinkedIn profiles should contain share market info, decoding start-ups finance structure, current affairs on finance related topics. The main thing to take into consideration is not to state obvious facts. The site can be monetised by creating a course that helps others. Profile building is key to maximizing the effectiveness of Linkedin presence. Profile photo must be in formals. Description like MBA student at PESU may not stand out and instead Here to market marketing would attract the searcher or finder to know about you more. Upload a photo that makes you sell to the companies. Maybe a photo of you addressing a huge audience. This says that you are more into networking. Writeup on About is where the actual you or your ability is known. Here you should share your unique knowledge that people don’t know and are keen to know about. Make sure it is in the form of a four lined story. Example: Title (movie reference) as “wolf of wall street” and then explain the selling of pen instance in marketing and finance terminology. Recommendations matter. “Do not ask them to give recommendations instead type from their phone!”. Sounds silly right but that's a fact. Everyone is busy building up their career life so go for it because we don’t know who watches us. Maintaining consistency in LinkedIn posts, may lead you to 1 among 133 CMO’s. Video posts reach people on the platform faster than text posts. Do not post long paragraphs. Let the text be catchy and with some humor. Do not feel hesitant to showcase yourself, as said earlier, it is a game of consistency. Make sure you are under the spotlight. Share your experience as people are here to know more about your ability. Show people that you refer to many articles in daily life. For example, while conversing with people discuss current affairs on LinkedIn. One of the references from Anmol Garg was “Seth Godin” “sales hacks” who blogged everyday for 11 years and many of his posts found mention in business books. Anmol Garg, a popular LinkedIn influencer who runs a sales training company called Sales5X which helps startups with sales strategies, is an alumni of PESIT, batch 2010. The Tuesday Talk was hosted online by the Department of MBA on January 11, 2022.

  • Talk on art of blogging

    As part of the Tuesday Talk series interaction on art of blogging was addressed by blogger and digital marketer Mr. Deepak Kanakaraju. He started by highlighting the importance of blogs in the digital world. He mentioned that the result of blogging is not constant, at times the outcome might be 10x times and sometimes it might be zero or even negative. Mr. Kanakaraju remembered his days of starting as a blogger and how he began as a moto-blogger. He shared his experience of his visit to China for ECIMA and, he stated that in his early learning period, “he learned Digital Marketing without even knowing what Digital Marketing is.” The speaker stressed that most decisions we take are a buffer against rejections and we as a generation are scared to accept rejection and hence are afraid to take any bold step. He countered his statement by providing the example of 'rolling of a dice' as a probability of obtaining results, the more we roll, the better probability to succeed. Mr. Deepak expressed that blogging is not merely about attracting customers but it is concerned with building an audience and trying to sell, as blogs attract traffic but do not make sales. He observed, “don’t create content and then try to sell but see what sells and then create the product. As efforts always yield results, it is important for us to take initiatives and start at the cost of our efforts. When we fail to act on it, every idea is an opportunity cost. Hence Go ahead and grab every opportunity. Indeed, it will be associated with embarrassment, but we need to take the initiative and move forward. Whenever we discuss an idea or seek help from family and friends about our decisions, it implies that we are not confident about it. Any day, it is better to 'ask for forgiveness rather than permission”. According to him, the best way to write a Blog is by choosing a self-hosted domain. Platforms like medium.com, blogspot.com and wordpress.com are also good options to consider. He felt that it is good if the writing is professional but in the end, it should be direct and easily understandable by everyone. He thought that one can start by writing about 500 words on any casual topic as if it is a conversation with a friend. The speaker suggested to the audience to develop the habit of writing a journal as it slows down the process of thinking and enables one to frame the sentences better. He compared writing to a way of thinking. He also gave an overview of the CATT framework for blogging, which is to Create content, Attract an audience, develop Trust and then Transact with them. The session concluded with an attempt at writing a blog addressing friends assuming that they are presently in the year 2025. The talk on the art of blogging was organized by the MBA department on December 21, 2021.

  • Talk on the power of storytelling

    The students found this session as an engaging confluence of anthropology, technology, and philosophy made possible by powerful storytelling. The talk featured Atul Jalan an entrepreneur, technologist, science storyteller and founder of Manthan and Algonomy, creating pioneering AI solutions for the world’s leading retailers and consumer connect businesses.

    Atul is a sought-after speaker to understand how technology is transforming man and the institutions he has created, changing how we do things and reshaping humans. And this is the perspective on technology that he usually speaks and  writes about - not as an application of science but rather in a simple and philosophical way for managing and leading a better life. He is also the author of “Where Will Man Take Us?”. The speaker started his talk by calling himself  lucky to be alive despite problems such as new diseases and nuclear annihilation. The speaker asked the students not to lament about anything and enjoy the privileges one has. He dreams of living in different times like during  Shakespeare, Leonardo da Vinci and also the French Revolution. He tells that technology has made this era more transformative. Based on evolution we stand a new phase. We have examples of artificial intelligence, Gen-tech, Quantum computing.

    The extensive reach beyond muscle power and technology is merging with biology. He calls evolution artificially engineered and is based on many factors. He mentioned that the people of this age have the responsibility of rewriting, redefining, and reimagining. And the process should be ethically flawless. Very little change of 1.26 % happened in humans, years ago from the nearest cousin chimpanzee and now we are at a very different phase and this tells us how change can bring wonders. He tells that he's eagerly waiting for the magic of 2032 where the social problems will be at a lower level. Answering a question from a student, the speaker compared the genetic structure to a word processor, and concerning ethics in technology, he exclaimed knife is a knife.

    India requires changes and has many challenges such as economic inequality and social unrest. He quoted the example of the internet and told how India has responded well in adopting the change. Change is good but it comes with disruption. There is innate inertia to change and the main agents that can influence this inertia are education and policymaking and unfortunately, both of these are habitual laggards.

    The speaker spoke about his inspiration for writing a book. Stories are first followed by other things. Answering a question from a student, Mr. Jalan said that there is confusion between mythology and history and also how imagination is turned into reality. Earlier the change was seen through the lenses of religion and philosophy and for the first time change is seen through the lens of science and technology. He advised students not to follow a narrower approach and asked them to get lost even more and considers that as the best way to find out about oneself. Mr. Jalan refers to technology as a continuum where the stories are imagined and technology brings stories to life. All streams are necessary to contribute to the tech revolution and everything is tech-enabled where one can leverage or contribute. AI and technology can replace humans and it is not a bad thing. Our current lifestyle is just about 300 years old and has been ours since the industrial revolution. Technology is not a zero-sum game. It gives opportunity and creates value. Ford was making horse carriages earlier when their industry got disrupted they moved to motorized carriages and this later became the wheel of the economy. He mentioned Luddites, used as a metaphor for the one who opposes technology. Luddism started by opposing the use of machinery in the textile industry which later employed a million people. There will be  displacements and disruptions, society has to manage them. If one job is destroyed a million are created. Shortly, technology can bring drastic changes in the healthcare and education sector and there will be some of its repercussions 

    also. Technology is building new dimensions and it will change everything. We have examples of web 3.0, NFT and Blockchain. Pandemic has proven it. Technology is always seen as in progression and confluence is the point where the magic  happens. Being philosophical he calls happiness is subjective and is not the mind's job. He requested the audience not to be prejudiced and to always stay vigilant. The guest speaker, Atul Jalan delivered the talk on Power of  Storytelling at RR campus on December 14, 2021.

His administrative acumen, attention to details, vision for all round development, unwavering dedication and above all transparency in public life have made his life and times a folklore to not only his engineering profession but also to all sections of society, from citizen to all those at the cutting edge of public administration. Here, I venture to record my impressions of how this proud son of Karnataka, refused to be constrained from the shackles of poverty of pre-independence India, to become an icon of public administration, shaping country’s development for all round development. His journey from a civil engineer to be a recipient of India’s highest honour, Bharata Ratna has a message for all, not just the engineering profession.

    Sir MV’s earlier contributions were in his civil engineering field. After a successful tenure in PWD of Bombay Government, he was invited to join the Indian Irrigation Commission where he proved his mettle by devising innovative floodgates to raise the level of water storage in reservoirs (first in Pune). The same system was installed later in KRS dam, Mysore. Another feat in his early career was to implement a system to prevent sea erosion of Vishakapatnam port.

    It was the then King of Mysore, Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV, another visionary and the most benevolent among the Kings, who invited Sir MV to lead the development of the then Mysore Kingdom as Diwan. He accepted Sir MVs philosophy “ Without Industries India cannot Grow”. Results were spectacular as Sir MV established many institutions for development such as Mysore Soap Factory, Parasitoid Laboratory, Mysore Iron & Steel Works (now named after Visvesvaraya), Sri Jayachamarajendra Polytechnic, State Bank of Mysore, Century Club, Mysore Chamber of Commerce (now FKCCI), University Visvesvaraya College of Engineering (UVCE, Bangalore) and many other industries. KRS dam in Mysore stands as a testimony of his engineering skills, vision for development and above all an illustrious example for all professions as to how one can contribute to public good and national development from his/her chosen field of service. In this regard, Sir MV stands out as a true patriot and no less a nationalist than those who chose to serve India through struggle for independence. Sir MV chose to serve the country as a professional engineer to free India from poverty and take the initial but firm steps towards self reliance.

    Addressing the association of engineers of Mysore (1910) he said that in the west, expenditure on education is considered a national investment and promptly followed it up with the establishment of University of Mysore, University of Agriculture, Bangalore and a Polytechnic in Bangalore.

    Sir MV also espoused the cause of charity with a purpose of empowerment towards self-reliance rather than supporting individuals, as both the individual and nation grow together productively. Seeds charity were sown by him so early which the modern governments have reinvented in the form of PPP.

    Apart from the above widely known facts, Sir MV was an icon of public values. It is widely known that before accepting the exalted position of Diwan of Mysore, he first obtained the concurrence of his family members not to seek any official favours from him.

    Many inspirational values he has left for future generations are eternally relevant to guide the society: transparency, age, life long learning, value of time, payback to society with a sense of gratefulness, value of planning before execution to prevent wastage and equality.

    I hold the view that Sir MV’s birthday should not be limited to Engineering profession alone. His life and times based on values in public life and vision to contribute to national development beyond one’s professional field are eternally relevant to all professions. They are the basic ingredients of growth even in 21st century and beyond, where the challenges of 4th industrial revolution based on knowledge activities hold the key to individual and national success.  

    PES University, as a tribute to Sir MV is offering a credit based course along with Mahathma Gandhi and Vivekananda.  

    I implore the Government to integrate Sir MV’s messages in curricula to inspire the youth and convince them about the huge opportunities to contribute to nation building in whatever profession they may choose.

  • REINSTATE YOURSELF AS GURU – DR. GURURAJ KARAJAGI

    Quality of education depends on the quality of the teachers and every teacher should aspire to become a Guru. These are the inspirational words from the talk delivered by the noted educationist and columnist-author Dr. Gururaj Karajagi at the Faculty Development Program organized by PES University.

    He said in his talk said that a good teacher teaches and makes sure the student learns the concepts and lessons. Whereas a Guru transforms student life in a positive way. The guru as a torchbearer and the guide encourages the student in every life stages to stroll on the less traveled road.

    India has traditionally been known for its ‘guru-shishya’ parampara of teaching-learning. Sage Vishwamitra-Rama, Sri Krishna- Arjuna, Sri Ramkrishna Paramahamsa- Swami Vivekananda are few among the ones who belong to this tradition, where the students achieved the greater heights due to the role of their Guru's. Over time as our civilization grew further, somewhere on the way this evolved into a ‘teacher-student’ mechanism. Nevertheless guru-shishya parampara still continues in our Nation and Subramaiam Aiyyar-Dr. Abdul Kalam is one among the many in the recent times.

    Dr. Karajagi emphasized that a teacher must use the language effectively. Teacher has to provide an environment to learn new things in every class. Further he said that, it is the responsibility of a teacher to facilitate creativity and arouse curiosity in the students. He called upon teachers to not only become intellectually good veteran teachers but also to transform the lives of students as a Guru.

    Dr. M.R. Doreswamy, Chancellor PES University said the quality and value based education are key for students success in the Society. Education without values is like a flower without fragrance. The educational eco system may need changes and reformations occasionally in-order to foster better learning. I am very proud and deem it as a privilege to say that I am a teacher rather than the Chancellor of the University. Dr. Doreswamy acknowledged the role of teachers in students' success and nation development.

    Vice Chancellor of PES University Dr. J. Suryaprasad, Registrar of PES University Dr.K.S.Sridhar and Director of Hanumanatha Nagar campus Prof. M.V. Sathyanarayana were present. Over 200 young teachers across campuses of PES participated in the FDP.

    I heartily congratulate Sri B.S. Yediyurappa, Hon’ble chief minister of Karnataka and Dr.K. Sudhakar Minister for Health and Family Welfare for successfully conducting the vaccination programme in the state to the appreciation of all stakeholders. With the momentum and efficiency at their best, I have no doubt that the state would be at the forefront of the vaccination drive, shortly.

This responsibility lies with the state government and all necessary help needs to be extended to teachers to perform to their full potential.

  • PES University Fifth ANNUAL CONVOCATION

    PES University conducted its Fifth annual convocation on November 8th, 2020 with a total of 2032 candidates receiving the degrees. It was a mixed mode with Ph.D. holders and rank holders were invited for the convocation while other successful graduates watched the proceedings online. Two candidates were conferred Doctorate degrees at the ceremony and 14 gold medals and 59 silver medals were won by the graduating class.

    His Lordship Mr Justice Gopal Gowda V delivered the convocation address. He said that the circumstances of this convocation are a bit unusual, and I would have loved the opportunity to meet all of the graduands and congratulated them at their immense achievement in person. He said Engineering is one of the oldest professions known to mankind, along with medicine and law. Engineers are the often said to be the architects of modern India. Right from the great Sir M. Visvesvaraiyya, Jagdish Chandra Bose, M.N Dastur, the designer of Steel plants, APJ Abdul Kalam, till the more recent example of Mr. E Sreedharan, the ‘metro man’ of Delhi. Science and technology is duly recognized as the vehicle to take India into the front ranks of the nations of the world. An issue of equal importance in the role of engineers, especially in a society like ours, is that they have the burden of addressing problems specific to developing communities including water provisioning and purification, sanitation, power production, shelter, site planning, infrastructure, food production and distribution, and communication, among many others.

    Further he highlighted on space-race and role of engineers. While the space race is on all over the world, the Indian engineers play a key role in designing ingenious satellites, without any help from the intelligentsia of other countries. These satellites, apart from enhancing our knowledge about the Universe, also play a major role by performing several other key functions, like predicting whether, and the rainfall pattern, flood warning etc.

    What is not understood is how many engineers, technologists and technicians are required to drive economic growth and sustainable development objectives within a country. There is no simple answer to this question as it is not simply a numbers game; more engineering professionals are needed if the number of engineers, engineering technologists and engineering technicians per capita is below the figures of a country’s competitors. Furthermore, increasing the number of engineering graduates is not necessarily a solution as there may be a shortfall in the job market for such graduates or the attractiveness of other non-engineering professions requiring problem-solving skills might entice graduates away from engineering he added.

    Dr M R Doreswamy acknowledged PANDIT MADAN MOHAN MALAVIYA who was instrumental in establishing BANARAS HINDU UNIVERSITY. As founder what I expect from our graduands are:

    (1) Parents have played a vital role in your success as a graduand and it is your first and foremost duty to remember, recognize and honor the sacrifice of your parents on this very auspicious occasion. Next, teachers. Teachers have moulded you into professionals. Remember and respect them. Finally have gratitude to Society.

    (2) Follow core values of PES i.e. Perseverance, Excellence and Service in your life. At PES we have perseverance i.e. continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties / challenges. You are steeping into real world and you may have lot of challenges, remember “P” of PES i.e perseverance, I am sure you will succeed and PES has already imbibed this in you he added. You entered the portals of PES University to get a degree, I am very happy to say that you are leaving with not just a degree but a career including very good placements in a best company. Thus you have excelled. Next core value is “SERVICE”. Service has become one of our core values of PES. As a student myself I started school at Thyagarajnagar as that locality had no schools in those days. It is not that I had all resources so I started a school, but it was with motivation to render service to society. If you look at 5 decades of my journey in the field of education, service is our motto he added. He re-called service in terms of school adoption, house constructions, medical camps, blood donation camps, etc

    (3) Admire NEP: New Education Policy (NEP) emphasises on making ‘job creators’ instead of ‘job seekers’ and I call upon all graduands to become ‘job creators’. NEP is comprehensive, holistic, far sighted and aimed to bring revolutionary change in education system.

    (4) Every graduate of PES University should fight against the corruption, fight against crime and terror, fight against injustice.

    Prof. D Jawahar, Pro Chancellor admitted the qualifying candidates and administered the oath of working for public good, innovating for advancement in their field of work, accountability to future generation, conducting oneself with honour and upholding the values of perseverance, excellence and service. He unveiled the scroll of honour carrying the names and pictures of meritorious students of the year.

    Dr J Suryaprasad, Vice Chancellor introduced the chief guest and dignitaries on the dais. Dr M R Doreswamy, Chancellor declared the convocation proceedings open. Dr K S Sridhar, Registrar presented the candidates to the council of the university.

    The graduating class saw active recruitment by leading global and Indian investment banks, software and engineering companies and promising start ups. The graduating batch made the most of the internship opportunities with key industry players.

  • Prof. M R Doreswamy was the Chief Guest for Gandhi Jayanti at S-VYASA University

    Dr. M R Doreswamy speaking on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanthi at S-VYASA University said that the entire world is paying tribute on this day to the most celebrated son of India. 

    On this day one needs to introspect why only Gandhi is a Mahatma while there are many individuals rendering yeomen services to the country in many wonderful professions such as lawyers, doctors, teachers, engineers etc, His legacies of Truth and Non-violence have left a lasting imprint on the collective consciousness of human civilization. 

    He is a Mahatma because he got independence for the country using these twin ‘weapons’, not waging a war or with bloodshed. He was aware that violence begets violence and adopted a unique method of protest against foreign rule which was the essence of our great Indian culture. Use of peaceful non-cooperation (satyagraha), he stabilized the Independence movement for years and ultimately got independence to India.

    His life was a message - a message of peace over power, of finding ways to reconcile our differences, and of living in harmony with respect and love even for our enemies. Gandhiji can be considered the most modern political thinker India has ever had. He shines like a luminous star in the galaxy of intellectuals, reformers and leaders.

    Gandhi transformed the Indian National Congress party from “Class party to Mass party” i.e. inclusion of all sections of society in the party he added. He recalled that “Gandhiji was telling that means is as important as end”, He also said that Gandhi's leadership role was extremely complex. Knowing that violence only begets violence, he began practicing passive resistance, Satyagraha. His achievements were nothing less than miracles.  

    Mahatma Gandhi was an icon of simplicity in life style – dress, food and choosing a dress of the poorest Indian, which he even wore when he went to England for the Round Table Conference in 1931 on the invitation of Winston Churchill the then Prime Minister of UK. There many social experiments he conducted as part of the independence movement; two noteworthy are the Swadeshi Movement to encourage boycott of British goods march from Dandi and the famous salt. However today, it is sad that the country is steeped in corruption, countless scams, criminal charges, self-centric and selfishness of people representatives. There is an urgent need to rediscover Gandhian principles.

    Prof. Doreswamy called upon all Universities to celebrate Jayantis in a meaningful way like what S-VYASA is doing today on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti and join hands with the Government’s initiative of adopting Government Schools in the State. He called upon “S-VYASA” to sign MoU with the State Government for introducing YOGA in all government schools.

    Dr. H R Nagendram the Chancellor of S-VYASA University thanked Dr. M R Doreswamy for having accepted the invitation and rendering a wonderful message, befitting the occasion.. He agreed to extend full support from S-VYASA University to Government initiatives. He recalled how YOGA being introduced to WORLD from “Then Narendra (i.e. Swami Vivekananda) to Now Narendra (i.e. our Hon’ble Prime Minister Sri Narendra Modi ji) and conceptualization of “International Yoga Day”. 

    Dr. B R Ramakrishna Vice-Chancellor, SVYASA University in his brief introduction of the Chief Guest Dr M R Doreswamy said that “Dr M R Doreswamy is real yogi who has contributed immensely towards Aatmanirbhar Bharat through his untiring service in the education sector. The virtues of Dama i.e Self Restraint, Dana i.e. Charity or giving and Daya i.e. Compassion are being practiced by Dr. MRD from the past five decades and in this sense he is a true yogi he added.

  • How can I stay motivated to study during pandemic?

    Are we in a life threatening situation?​

    No, As per current data, global mortality rate of COVID19 is around 5% or only 50 people could die out of 1000 (For India its around: 2.9%). remaining 950+ people will recover with the help of adequate medical care​

    Just imagine you are one among those 950+ people!​

    Nevertheless, make sure you are following strictly all the guidelines regarding COVID19 like hygiene practice, social distancing, staying at home, etc


    What ‘if I get affected’ by COVID19?​

    Follow the guidelines of GOI regarding COVID19 issued from time to time.​

    Be aware of your feelings like guilt, regret etc. These feelings make you feel depressed and affect your recovery rate​

    Focus on your strength to fasten your recovery.​

    Kindly note that what ‘if I don’t get affected’​ (bcz, ‘what if’ is anxiety eliciting thinking pattern!)​

    Watch your emotions: Your fear could escalate your perception of the risk involved and anger makes you perceive the risk less, makes you highly vulnerable ​


    What if one of my parent get affected…​

    Again anxiety eliciting thinking pattern!! ​Drop the thought process​

    If they get affected by COVID19, still I ask you to stay calm and follow guidelines and do as per the medical advice ​

    Remember that you are not alone. The entire Government machinery/medical fraternity is with you or with your parent in the recovery process!​


    Am I doing enough to prevent it?​

    Do as much as possible! Hand hygiene, social distancing…​

    Remember that no human being can change his habit suddenly!​

    It takes lot of effort in terms of being aware of it, stay calm, practice it again and again​

    Stay calm and slow down!( I emphasize stay calm because your anxiety will make you do the opposite, where you touch your eyes, nose and mouth more often!)​

    Feel that you are under control. Feeling of loss of control makes you feel guilty, hopeless and worthless​


    How to improve my immunity?

    It takes time and it is a gradual process!​

    Nutritious food, sleep, exercises, and positive thinking will take time to enhance your immunity​

    Not to worry: Doing some thing is better than nothing! Start now and feel good within yourself!​


    Media attention!​

    We talk about the importance of media in the society, and nation’s development. But the irony is too much of media exposure-especially digital and social media will make you feel distressed​

    The research says that people with the highest exposure to media coverage of negative incidents experienced more acute stress than who actually exposed to the real incidents!!​

    So lesser the media, higher your ability to study!​


    Motivation to study depends…​

    Your performance will be high, if your course matches:​

    Interest (passion)​

    Aptitude (your CET/PESSAT score, approximately)​

    Personality & Discipline​

    Set goals: Both short term and long term​


    Be SMART!!!!!

    Short term goals depends upon:​

    Your goals should be realistic​

    Make your goal as much as specific​

    It must be measurable​

    Some body must have achieved it or achievable!​

    Sufficient time should be there to achieve​


    5R for effective studying

    Read for 45-50 minutes and take break for 5 minutes​

    Recollect - Write down few points/formulas or use mind mapping​

    Reflect: reflect upon a what you have read after every concept or paragraph​

    Revise- after the end of every study period and at the end of the day, every week, etc​

    Reward-Yourself with a compliment, sweets, snacks or anything you like​


    Take it as a challenge!

    Whatever I had given is research based and it will help you a lot​

    If you don’t understand, call me or other counselors​


    We are available on:​

    Dr. Vijendra Kumar: 9741056503, vijendrak@pes.edu

  • Short Course on How to Approach Engineering Research

    PES University conducted a 2-day workshop on the approaches to Engineering Research on January 4th & 5th, 2020. The workshop was conducted by Prof. Perumal Nithiarasu, the Director of Research at the College of Engineering, Swansea University, UK. 

    The workshop contained eight lectures spread across two days and included two tutorial sessions. It was attended by around 50 academicians consisting of PhD students and lecturers from various Engineering disciplines, and also included a few Under-Graduate and PostGraduate students. 

    The workshop started with a brief introduction by Dean of Research, Dr. Sudarshan T.S.B about the workshop, followed by an inaugural address of Registrar, Dr. V Krishnamurthy. Dr. Krishna V and Prof. K N Seetharamulu OF Dept. of Mechanical Engineering also were present on the occasion. 

    Day 1 

    The first day of the workshop focussed on challenges commonly faced by inexperienced research scholars. After an introduction to general terminologies in research and underlining the need for research that ultimately benefits society, Prof. Nithiarasu built a strong case for the importance of underpinning fundamental research, and highlighted the significance of high-risk-high-reward research. This was followed by examples of a few common pitfalls faced by new researchers and how to identify early symptoms of such pitfalls. 

    The next session discussed visionary vs incremental research, the importance of both, and how incremental research should be designed in order to make progress towards a larger, more ambitious goal i.e. the vision. The last lecture for the day gave several pointers on identifying rewarding research areas and prioritizing them. The first day concluded with a group activity, with each group identifying one example of visionary research, and two examples of incremental research, which were then presented to the audience. A total of five groups presented their ideas, and a good discussion of each idea followed, concluding with some excellent insight provided on each idea by distinguished guest attendee Dr. Ramachandra, Director at ADA (DRDO). 

    Day 2 

    The second day of the workshop built upon the foundations laid before, and progressed towards the importance of planning in research, and contained several examples of three and five year research plans, and how to break up the work into appropriate sized chunks. This was followed by a comprehensive discussion of dissemination in research, covering important topics like selecting the correct conference or journal, the relevance of conference papers in today’s world, identifying and avoiding predatory or fraudulent journals and some pointers on writing a good journal paper. The day ended the proceedings by discussing the importance of supervisors in the duration of PhD research, and finding the correct research group for postdocs and building connections with industry and organizations for collaborative research. 

    There were several mentions of general do’s and don’ts for research scholars who plan to pursue research as a career post conclusion of their doctoral studies. 

    Both days of the workshop were littered with examples from Prof. Nithiarasu’s past experiences which helped the audience relate better to the topics under consideration. The sessions was largely interactive with each lecture consisting of a Q&A session encouraging the audience to narrate relevant examples from their own research work. 

    The workshop was unique in that it contained a fine balance of both sides involved in research - student and supervisor, and enriched the audience with a holistic view of research in engineering domains.

  • PES University Bangalore had organized a Symposium on Exploring Nobel Prized Thoughts: Musings on the 2019 Economics Nobel Prize

    The 2019 Nobel Prize itself has specially been gratifying. One of the winners was born in India. Abhijit Banerjee and Esther Duflo of MIT and Michael Kremer of Harvard won the coveted prize for their distinctive contribution in the use of experimental methods to learn about the effectiveness of small-scale policy interventions aimed at helping improve the lives of some of the world’s poorest citizens. The experimental method applied by the three winners is called a Randomized Controlled Trial, or RCT. The Nobel Prize appropriately recognizes both the winners’ use of a powerful research technique and their application of that technique to some of the world’s most pressing policy problems. The Welcome Address was given by Dr. Vijay Kumar, Dean, Department of Management Studies, PES University Bangalore. Eminent speakers from esteemed organizations presented their views on the theme. The gist of the talks is mentioned below: Ritwik Banerjee, UC Berkeley Fulbright-Nehru Visiting Scholar, Associate Professor, Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore initiated on Randomized Controlled Trial: The New Standard in Development Economics. He mentioned the need for RCT in developmental economics. He explained about the causal determinates, causal association and causal relations. He further helped in understanding the mechanics of RCTs with examples such as the Deworming experiment by Mighel and Kremer and the Immunization experiment by Banerjee, Duflo, Glennester and Kothari. He also touched upon the limitations of RCTs and how the external validity plays a role in its drawback. R. Ramakumar, Professor, Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai addressed the topic of What ails Randomized Controlled Trial? He laid emphasis on how RCT contradicts its own definition of randomness. He also called the Randomized Controlled Trail a problematic and ahistoric as it disregards the pre-scientific baggage with which the experiments are conducted. He questioned “Is being random equivalent to being unbiased?” He also questioned RCT being regarded as the gold standard of developmental economics. He further suggested that the introduction of stratification will help in making RCT a right choice but the rule book of RCT considers prior information as lethal. Sowmya Dhanaraj, Associate Professor, Madras School of Economics, Chennai elaborated on Running Randomized Evaluations: An Indian Experience. She spoke about the Indian Experience of the RCT implementation. She explained how the experimental study is classified. She mentioned that RCT holds good for evidence based policies and also explained cycle of evidence in understanding policy making.

Surbhi Kesar, Research Fellow, Azim Premji University Bangalore highlighted the aspect of Randomized Controlled Trials: Implications for the field of Development Economics. She talked about the problematic pain points of RCT. She mentioned that there’s a trade-off between precision and unbiased in the design of the experiment in RCT. She also spoke about the normative issue and the desirability of an intervention. She added that RCT is a borrowed technique from life sciences. V. Sridhar, Associate Editor, Frontline explained the topic of Randomized Controlled Trial: Understanding and Misunderstanding. He said that RCT has clouded out other ways to address developmental economics. Also, RCT has become more of a fashion for students to have in their CV to further their doctoral ambitions. He emphasized that RCT works in averages while a country like India which is highly stratified, the data between the averages will suffer from a lot of variations. He mentioned that RCT being a flavor of the day is a serious problem. The audience comprised of industry professionals, academicians and students. They well appreciated the overall concept, theme and presentations done by all the esteemed speakers.
