Organize frequent and stream-appropriate Industrial Visits

    2. Petition by

      MPSTME STUDENTS

      Mumbai, India

As students of engineering, we at MPSTME have never had the opportunity to couple our acquired theoretical knowledge with practical aspects of our field.
Seven years into the inaugration of this college of engineering, students are still forced to follow the rote-method of learning. There is a serious deficit of practical knowledge. For a university that aspires to be the best in its field in the next five years, this is a sorry situation.

MPSTME officially charges a fair amount of money, in the range of 8,000-10,000 rupees, towards Industrial Visits as a part of its fee structure but has hisorically seldom organised any. All visits so far have been due to the resolve of the interested party(read: Students).

We, the students of MPSTME, demand that frequent and stream-appropriate Industrial Visits, both local as well as national, be organised for not just the current crop of students, but the future students too. It is also our humble request that these Industrial Visits be integrated into the curriculum so that attendance hassles for the duration of the visit do not crop up.

We also understand the risks associated with such visits and we are willing to take full responsibility for our own actions whilst the visit is in progress.

      Rs. 10,000 x 4 years x 5 divisions x 160 students = 3,20,00,000 - thats the amount that the B.Tech course alone pays them just for the IV.

      That comes up to 80,00,000 per year, with 16,00,000 per division per year.

      And when we have gone for IVs planned by the students themselves, none of these funds have been made available to us.

      A 6yr old will have the brains to know this is gross misappropriation of funds!!

      We demand this be returned to all the students that have already passed out and have been victim to this scam. And every student present yet, should demand an IV organized by the college which utilizes all of these funds. Else these should be returned to them as well.

      Appropriate legal action should be taken if the college fails to act upon these demands. Anyone got any friends studying Law?

      10,000 x 4 years x 5 divisions x 60 students = 1,20,00,000 - this is the amount that is being paid by the B.Tech course alone for IV. This means that 30,00,000 is available per year for B.Tech students' IV, giving each division 6,00,000 for the IV. And whenever we have had an IV none of these funds have been made available to us. This is not just gross misappropriation of funds, its misrepresentation and manipulation of student fees. I demand this money be returned to all those students who have passed out. And the ones that are still suffering within this institute, make sure you get an IV for your division with all expenses paid by the college worth 6,00,000. Else appropriate legal action must be taken against this institute. Anyone got any friends in the Law college of NMIMS?

      It takes more than lip service to become a good college. Scams such as these aren't doing you any good.
