Montek rejects President’s proposal for all-women IIT

NEW DELHI: Planning Commission deputy chairperson Montek Singh Ahluwalia has rejected President Pratibha Patil’s proposal for an all-women IIT at Amravati, but this may not be the last word on the matter. As sources point out, the world over there are all-women education institutions imparting higher education, including technical and management courses.

Patil’s proposal, that was approved by both the HRD ministry and the PMO, had gone to the Plan panel for its in-principle approval. The PMO had told the Planning Commission that the proposal for an all-women IIT was independent of the six new IITs that have already started. It was argued that such an institution in a backward region like Amravati would send the right message and could act as a catalyst for women’s education in the area.

While rejecting the idea, the panel said setting up an all-women IIT would result in demands for similar NITs and IIMs and was, therefore, not worth it. In fact, the Plan panel’s letter clearly states that the decision to reject the President’s idea has the approval of Ahluwalia.

According to sources, the matter has not ended yet and another attempt could be made to convince the Planning Commission. As a senior official said, it is rare that a proposal from the President is shot down summarily as the Planning Commission has done. He also said, “What is wrong if there is a demand for an all-women IIM or NIT. The world over there are technical universities for women.”

In fact, after Pepsico chief Indra Nooyi’s success a private education group has decided to start an all-women management school in India.

IT firms go slow on hiring from IITs

Information technology firms appear to have lost their appeal at the Indian Institutes of Technology. Campus recruitment figures by major Indian and foreign IT firms have dipped this year, raising further concerns of an industry slowdown.

Firms like IBM, HCL [Get Quote], Hughes Software and CSC opted out of placements this year and hiring by firms like India’s largest IT services provider Tata Consultancy Services [Get Quote], Infosys [Get Quote] and Wipro [Get Quote] has dropped.

Confirming the trend, a placement official from IIT Roorkee said: “While many companies say they have a particular number in mind and would recruit likewise, our alumni network at these companies informs us that these IT giants are exercising restraint in recruiting trainees due to a slowdown.”

Agreed a placement official from IIT Kanpur: “Like every year, the institute offered the regular number of students to these IT companies for placements but they did not pick as many students.”

Recruitment by IT companies at IIT Kanpur has gone down from 130 students in 2007 to 72 in 2008.

“Clients from IT firms are increasingly in the process of utilising their bench strength,” said Monisha Advani, managing director, Randstad India, an HR consultancy firm.

With the US slowdown and rupee appreciating against the dollar for most of 2007-08, IT firms are under tremendous pressure to manage margins and costs. IT firms have been in the news recently with TCS, IBM India, Mphasis (an Electronic Data System company) and Yahoo! India asking several hundreds of employees to leave on grounds of “poor performance or non-performance”.

“What we have been hearing these days is a clear case of skills mismatch. While non-linear growth is the way forward, it is something that will happen on a long-term basis. In the short term, IT firms will need to have volumes,” said Sudin Apte, senior analyst and country head, Forrester India.

The companies, however, maintain with the boom in other sectors like investment banking and retail, and the urge to be entrepreneurs, IT firms are left with little option but to reduce their hiring from these institutes.

“Most students from IITs either want to get into hardcore research or prefer to go in for higher studies. Besides, other sectors also hire in big numbers from these institutes,” says an executive from Wipro.

Comp-graduates park non-council

Mumbai: Ankit Gupta, a computer engineer from IIT Bombay, is the newest member of a consultancy firm as a Business Analyst. After four years of computer programming slogging, Gupta for a “management and resolution of problems for the nature of the future scope of custody”.

Gupta is not alone. Of the 1100 students, IIT-B from this year, only 40 have joined the computer Hollywood majors like Infosys, Wipro and TCS, while about 15% of graduates in computer science from non-technical areas . Of course, the engineer, the race director for his money.

Cut short the Engineering MBA route, several IIT graduates-are now joining the coaching job immediately after their BTech. The scenario is the same in other main schools of engineering. IIT Kanpur, saw eight BTech software engineers collaborative enterprise financial partner and three analysts, such as consulting firms McKinsey and Lehmann Brothers, this year’s placement.

And why not? With Infosys, Wipro or may not be close to the annual salary of Rs 10 lakh as consultation and corporate financing, the cream of graduates in computer science are the other way. IIT-Roorkee Position President PK Jain said that the financing of eight companies and 10 consultancy firms have collected nearly 100 students on campus this year. Kushal Sen, chief investment in IIT Delhi, attributes this trend over the lucrative wages offered by other sectors, as well as the increasing number of companies visiting the IIT campus for recruiting engineers.

IIT-B director Ashok Misra pointed out that there has been a waste of time, while the boom in information technology, when students at the computer is not only scientific but also all flows the location of tests under the direction of Infosys, Wipro and TCS. But it was the time when companies IT wages paid, almost double, which can provide jobs engineering.

“Today, engineers graduates not to rest once and for the placement of interviews, computer companies, unless it is a rare case, and not a student at another place too for a long time, “says Gupta, who is also the position of the IIT-B.

This year, flat annual companies such as Infosys and Wipro are less than half the average wage in the tender IIT Campus. “The average annual wage on our campus R 6.5 lakh. Why a student must become familiar with an RS-3 lakh job? Request BK Mathur, president of the Investment Committee at IIT-Kharagpur. Indeed, if their participation Satyam letter this year, said she Rs 2.8 lakh years’ salary-IIT graduates, it was not invited.

And so FMCG companies, retail and real estate for a chance to ITI Campus this year. Kannan Moudgalya service technical chemistry IIT Bombay said: “Many sectors have now need not only experts in the field, but also computer programmers. In case of non-technical, IIT graduates-are currently in arrivals as New Economy Tasks financial analysis math Officer and Financial Engineering. “

IITians focus on rural India

For most people, tough times mean tough choices. But here’s a really offbeat one — the high profile alumni of India’s premier tech schools
have decided to lend a hand to grassroots development, as the corporate world is getting buffeted by the worst recession in decades. The old boys of the IITs have opted to focus on the India that lives in villages at their annual jamboree which is being held at IIT-Madras later this week.

The most prominent ‘made in India’ global network has decided that this is the best time to highlight the contribution of people from rural areas in the development of India. This is a big change from earlier high-profile PanIIT meetings which have either been about providing mentorship and business tips for budding entrepreneurs from the alma mater or schmoozing with politicos in Delhi or Capitol Hill and networking with global business biggies.

Water woes end IIT on course

The Bihar Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) is all set to open its doors for its first batch from July and August by admitting its quota of students, who cleared the Joint Entrance Examinations (JEE) recently.

However, the top technocrats in the making would be a “displaced lot” for they will have to reside and study (at least for three more years) in a temporary building in Pataliputra Industrial Estate Complex. Sources in the science and technology department revealed that it would take at least three years to complete the IIT complex in Amahara near Bihata.

The Bihar government had earmarked 500 acres at Bihata for the complex last year after the Centre allotted an IIT to Bihar.

A team of experts from IIT, Roorkie, that inspected the site in October 2007 raised objections about the feasibility of construction on land earmarked for the IIT.

Experts feared that the complex would be partly submerged in the rainy season as the allotted land was in a low-lying area.

“We have now earmarked 500 acres in Amahara, 10km from Bihata, that is an upland,” said Shahid Ali Khan, the science and technology minister, adding: “The experts have already cleared the site and the human resource development ministry has approved it.”

The HRD ministry has also approved the start of the first session from this year, Khan said.

However, sources in the science and technology department conceded it would take three years to “fully acquire” the 500 acres and build the complex.

For now, IIT, Patna, that has IIT, Guwahati, as its mentor, will offer electrical and mechanical engineering, besides computer science.

“The curriculum, syllabi, fee structure and rules for the new technical school will broadly remain the same as in its mentor IITs,” the science and technology department official said.

He added that authorities in IIT, Guwahati, would carry out the first batch’s admission and the mentor’s faculties would come up to teach the first batch.

Texas Instruments (TI), the global information technology company, has signed a four-year collaborative agreement with the School of Medical Science and Technology of Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur (IIT-KGP), to develop semiconductor technologies that will help improve the quality, comfort and accessibility of healthcare in India.

This is TI’s first partnership with an IIT on research projects devoted to medical electronics innovation. The project is a part of TI’s recent announcement to spend $15 million towards funding research work in the field of medical technology.

According to Ajoy Kumar Ray, head of school of medical science and technology at IIT-KGP, “In India alone, about 800,000 patients undergo coronary bypass surgery every year, while one in every 12 women develops breast cancer. Also, oral leukoplakia and oral sub-mucous fibrosis have been widely prevalent in India and are a cause of concern to scientists in the country. The TI-IT KGP technology partnership will enable devices that could help address some of these pressing healthcare issues.”

The research team will develop semiconductors for medical equipment for cancer and cardiac-related treatment. TI’s was supporting this research to help develop new semiconductor technologies for personal medical devices, implantables, medical imaging, wireless healthcare systems and bio-sensor technology.

The IIT-KGP research collaboration reflected TI’s keenness to develop the next generation of innovators.

The outcome of the research would be intellectual property of TI, which will use the technology globally, said Bishwadip Mitra, managing director of TI India Ltd.

Other research focus areas would be detection technology for cancer and heart problems by use of imaging technology and micro electro-mechanical system (MEMS) based biosensor technology.

“The research will be essentially on TI platform, as the company has an arsenal of about 17,000 analog chips, which can be used for imaging techniques,” Mitra said.

The collaborative research with IIT-KGP, which would involve 15-20 researchers, would be divided into three groups — biological research team, image processing team, and doctors, said Mitra.

This apart, specialists from TI would also work with the IIT researchers, and the research would be reviewed every six months, Ray added.
