Alumni Association of Marian Engineering College (MECAA)

GENERAL BODY MEETING OF ALUMNI ASSOCIATION - MECCA 2012

DATE: 22/12/2012

VENUE: CGPU HALL

The second Alumni meeting of Marian Engineering College was held at 11.00 AM on Saturday, 22nd Dec, 2012 at CGPU hall. Together with the Manager, Rev. Msgr. A. George Paul, Coordinator of Alumni Association, Prof. Dr. M. Sasikumar and Prof. Dhananjayan, nineteen members participated in the meeting. Dr. M. Sasikumar welcomed the audience. He also gave an oral report of our association from its very inception.

In his introductory talk Manager thanked the participants who came on time even from far-off places, in spite of their busy schedule, in the available limited Christmas holidays. He reasserted that Marian college is our Alma Mater and all should feel happy to come back to one’s home since we are all, members of one Marian Family. He insisted the members to drop-in whenever they bypass Trivandrum.

Prof. Dhananjayan in his sharing session touched on areas where Alumina can contribute positively in the development of Marian College. This was followed by a common sharing session in which all members freely shared their views. This can be summed up as follows.

1.In our earlier meetings members already decided to come over to Marian and give orientation classes to students and motivate them on industry and placement opportunities. Mr. Abin.N.A. reported that one day he reached here and gave an orientation programme to 3rd semester students of MEC. Mr. Subin Manoj then promised to give an orientation programme to the students at the earliest. A few of them reported that they already came and others promised to come within one or two months. It was suggested that from S1S2 onwards we have to motivate the students, set erect their mind setup and foster their good qualities to come up as distinctive professionals.

2.Interdepartmental activities must be encouraged and this will help them to learn new things, share knowledge and open the avenues for research and inventions.

3.Suggested that students must be encouraged to do live projects within the campus with entrepreneurship interest so that they may find job opportunities by themselves and persons of such caliber would be picked up by industries.

4.Provide training sessions for both Staff and students to get updated in recent technologies.

5.Nurture talents from fifth semester like giving GATE coaching.

6.To give more exposure to students by allowing them to develop a software for the college-Card Reading.

7.Govt. jobs are still available in many branches and students should be encouraged to opt for Govt. jobs also.

8.Members noticed that year after year the number of participants in alumni meeting is not increasing. Hence the members suggested that we have to concentrate on recent pass outs. Find peer groups, so that pass out will be more interested to attend such meetings.

9.Alumni meeting should be renamed as “HOME COMING” so as to bring a family feeling among all. In this context it was suggested that along with alumni meeting, staff alumni meeting should also be conducted as these students would like to meet also their staff members.

10.It was suggested that Alumni Association can build up its identity only by initiating a glittering programme for our college. Members felt that recognizing meritorious students with awards on behalf of Alumni Association would be a befitting undertaking. However the members felt that we do not have the fund to initiate such a programme at this stage. A suggestion put forward by the members is that the management gives the next meritorious students’ award on behalf of Alumni Association and this can be taken up by Alumni in the following year. The Manager who was present on the dais accepted the proposal.

At this stage Manager intervened the discussion and said that he is so happy to see that members have given very valuable and practical suggestions. He thanked them. As usual members would wind up and go and the question comes, who will follow these suggestions and implement them. Then it was suggested that as part of getting better cooperation from alumni, first of all, we have to prepare a good report of this meeting and place the same in our website with necessary photos. Secondly the members included Mr. Manu Cyriac and Vishnu Govind in the Marian College Alumni Executive team. They promised to have an executive meeting in Jan. 2013 and take up the suggestions and start implementing them.

Finally Dr. M. Sasikumar proposed the vote of thanks and concluded the session.

Dr. M. Sasikumar (Coordinator, Alumni Association)
