“Our both the universities and the institutions are working continuously on the research programs,” says Dr. Minal Saxena, Dy. Director, Sagar Institute of Research and Technology, Bhopal in an interview with Chandan Anand, Founding Editor, ArdorComm Media Group at the ‘ArdorComm New Normal – Education Leadership Summit & Awards 2022’ #ELSAGujarat #ELSAAhmedabad
I would like to understand and know more about your institution if you can throw us some light on it?
Our institution is actually a pool of institutions in central India with our very former Institute of Sagar, Institute of Research and Technology in which I am a part since last 20 years and where I have two leading universities Sage University, Indore and Sage University, Bhopal which are the leading universities of central India with their USPs of experiential learning and a research focused curriculum.
So, as your Institute name includes the words Research and Technology how important is in today’s era, research plays a role and why skill development is important along with the regular curriculum?
Research definitely plays a very important role; our both the universities and the institutions are working continuously on the research programs. We have the AICTE sponsored labs for the advanced computing in both of the universities and our students and faculty members are continuously working on IPR, copyright and patents and the students of SIRT have been a good startup entrepreneurs with government funding in 2018 and 19 and a large number of startup units are there in Bhopal, in Indore so I think our alumnus speaks it all.
In this forum when we can witness we have the industry leaders the startups, the corporate, academicians and even the government representatives what has been your experience overall and how does this kind of symposiums helps to the industry?
This is wonderful actually post covid challenges towards students, new strategies for students new Ed Tech startups and the New Normal actually it’s the new thing which is coming up and it was a wonderful session starting with the new education policy. So, I think as academicians we are going to witness the change of and transformation of education with these tech tools so thank you very much for inviting me here and making me aware of many things which definitely will be a growing tool for us for the future tomorrow.
