Chairman, Bajaj Auto Ltd. and
President, Shiksha Mandal
At a time when Engineering admissions are going abegging, it is legitimate to wonder why Shiksha Mandal invested over Rs 80 Crores in a new Engineering Institution. The answer has a number of aspects. First, that technology is what drives change in today’s world and if Shiksha Mandal is not in that space it is unable to fulfil its mandate of contributing to national development. Second, Shiksha Mandal is a Bajaj Educational Trust and the Bajaj Group is essentially an Engineering and Finance group. Bajaj Auto, Bajaj Electricals and Mukand Ltd. are engineering companies. So funding of the project has been done by Bajaj trusts and there will be synergy between Bajaj Institute of Technology and Bajaj Group of companies in the future. Third, Shiksha Mandal’s existing institutions, notably its Polytechnic and Science Colleges have an organic linkage with engineering colleges. We believe in delivering more than we promise, so are circumspect in making promises. But between Shiksha Mandal and Bajaj's Companies, we are confident that Bajaj Institute of Technology will produce capable technocrats and their quality will keep on improving. Industry needs outstanding professionals, so it is in its own self enlightened interest to contribute to the process of their education. I commend the work of the Shiksha Mandal team and that of the Bajaj Institute of Technology team. I am thankful to the outstanding professionals on its Governing Board for giving time and energy in shaping it.
Bajaj Institute of Technology is a major statement by Shiksha Mandal. That is proud of its past, it is geared to the future. It is heartening to note the response of students to Bajaj Institute of Technology in its first year. Shiksha Mandal does not advertise in the media and yet there was a 100% allocation of students. This reflects the credibility of both, the Bajaj name and Shiksha Mandal’s track record. Doing right for the future of our students and institution is what permeates and drives Shiksha Mandal. This often means choosing a path less taken, like affiliating to Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Technological University. Leaders are not followers, but they have the responsibility to deliver a better outcome, to do what is right. Only God knows the future. We can only be future oriented and be both determined and flexible in the pursuit of our goals. Bajaj Institute of Technology has done well in its initial year, despite the inevitable teething troubles. It has delivered on its promise of giving exposure to its students. Its students undergo Industrial Training at Bajaj Auto Ltd, Aurangabad. It is the only institution in the whole country to offer such an exposure to its students. We are thankful to Bajaj Auto Ltd. for making this possible. From next year Adjunct faculty from Bajaj group companies will become a regular feature of the teaching process. This will substantially enhance the learning of our students. When we know why we need to learn something, our motivation to learn improves exponentially.
