History of higher education in India

In this writing, I am describing about history of the institution Sree Narayana Mangalam Institute of Management & Technology and considerable transitions occurred in my department, Electronics and Communication Engineering.

The institution is a self financing engineering college situated in Ernakulam district in the state of Kerala. It is run by HMDP Sabha, approved by AICTE and affiliated to Mahatma Gandhi University, Kerala.  The college established in the year 2001 and offers engineering disciplines of several specialization. Electronics and Communication Engineering department constitutes of 13 faculty members, well qualified and equipped with current trends in the applications of engineering. The department has 60 students of intake capacity.

There is a transition in the curriculum of M G University; the university revised the curriculum in the year 2010. Specialized domain theory and practical courses are included as part of the new curriculum.

The department of Electronics and Communication Engineering focused more on academic training of subjects, laboratory works and additional help for students in their learning process. Motivation talks, invited lecture, training programs on specialized tools and technologies are arranged for students by external experts. Faculty is responsible to do their part by delivering basic fundamental classes on MATLAB, MPLAB to the students during vacations. These add on training programs will meet the industry outlook for the students.

Considerable research works, project works are initiated in the incubation center 'SPARK' is established in the year 2014. More focus yet to be done in this section. Teaching and academic delivery is at the top and fairly good pass percentage in the university and students secured 3rd and 4th ranks in the year 2011 and 2012. There has been a considerable transition from the faculty side from academics and teaching to the research works and paper presentations. Publications are increasing when took last few years.

Students are very active in the department activities and students forum. Professional bodies like IEEE, ISTE are active in this institution. Students played a vital role in these activities. They are active in social services like community helping in the nearby localities.

Department e-magazine 'e-hive' released every academic year with the coordination of students and faculty members. Project exhibitions are conducted every year for students from schools and colleges.

The department faculty is now active in the research work of their area of expertise. This shift is expected in the coming years.
