Contribute towards progress, Barnala tells students

The Tamil Nadu Governor and former Chief Minister Punjab, Mr Surjit Singh Barnala, asked the student community in the state to contribute towards the progress of their state and nation. Mr Barnala was delivering the convocation address during the first convocation ceremony of the Chandigarh Engineering College Landran, near here.

Since I was from the Nabha state I was asked to pay Rs 3600 more than the other students. I refused. And instead of engineering I joined law at Lucknow. Had I joined engineering would have been one of you,” he told the students.

Opportunities in Canada discussed

With a view to exploring academic and job avenues for its students in Canada, Chandigarh Engineering College (CEC), Landran, Mohali, held a meeting with delegates from Cambrian College, Canada. Detailed discussions were carried out regarding opportunities for engineers, MBAs, BCAs and MCAs in Canada.

The Cambrian College delegates pointed out that most of the employers in Canada preferred candidates holding degrees from Canada itself. The candidates with degrees from various Indian universities were required to undergo some short-term courses of one year or two years duration in Canada before being considered for employment in various companies there. The fee payable by international candidates for these courses was quite exorbitant.

They suggested various programmes like business and computer studies, communication and creative arts, community and human services, health -related programmes, hospitality and tourism, law and justice, science and technology being run by Cambrian College.

Pre final year CEC students get jobs

A number of pre-final year students of Chandigarh Engineering College (CEC), Landran, have got job offers from some leading companies of the country.

All final-year students of the college, who would pass out in August, had been already recruited by reputed companies.

However, it was almost unbelievable for the students of pre-final year class when they received job offers from companies like IFLEX and Birlasoft.

Tarun Jain of CSE, Savdeep Kaur, Amit Vanjani and Navjot Singh of ECE, Nipun Loomba of ME and Harmeet Minhas of MCA, all pre-final year students, say they never thought of getting jobs with pay package of more than Rs 2.2 lakh per annum before even entering the final year of their respective courses.

Mr Satnam Singh Sandhu, chairman, and Mr Rashpal Singh Dhaliwal, general secretary, said the college was gaining new heights every year. While all students going to pass out in August this year have been already recruited by various MNCs and other leading companies, the job offers to pre-final year students was yet another feather in the cap of the college, they added.

Dr G.D. Bansal, Principal, said a number of companies, including Syntel, Birlasoft, Persistent Systems, Hewitt Associates and IFLEX, had already held interviews for recruitment of students passing out in 2007.
