Message from Dean Academic

Inderprastha Engineering College has to develop the Mission, Vision, Goal and Values that would be instrumental in placing IPEC among the top academic Institutions of the India. The strategies that we develop must create new opportunities for the faculty and the students to enhancement of knowledge, performing cutting edge research and development of professional skills. The ultimate aim is to provide the students with an educational training that emphasizes innovation and social awareness. Also there is a serious need to promote the spirit of creativity among our students.
We require setting up a strong link with the industry. An expansion of industrial problem based innovation is essential. In a renewed drive towards industrial impact, successful and timely execution of small and medium size problem should be attempted.
The role of humanities and social sciences in Engineering Education is to be revisited. A perfect blend of humanities would imbibe intellectual honesty, professional ethics and capacity for teamwork in the face of new challenges. IPEC having an effective and vibrant counselling service. This kind of services will try to make the stay of new students in the institute as comfortable and as memorable as possible. This will also help the new entrants adjust to the system at the earliest so that they strive to achieve academic excellence in addition to overall growth of their personality. The counselling service will effectively eradicate the means of ragging.
LEARNING MUST BE A FUN FOR THE STUDENTS. THE INITIATIVES FOR LEARNING MUST COME FROM WITHIN. THE ACADEMIC ECHO SYSTEM HAS TO BE DEVELOPED IN THAT DIRECTION. IPEC I HAS TO MAKE A MARK AMONGST THE UNDERGRADUATE COMMUNITY ITS LEARNING CENTRIC ACADEMIC ORIENTATION. INSTRUCTORS AND STUDENTS HAVE TO WORK TOGETHER FOR THIS NOVEL TEACHING LEARNING PARADIGM. THE STUDENTS SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED FOR CREATIVE ACTIVITIES, BE IT IN THE REALM ESOTERIC WORLD, OR IN THE HANDS ON EXERCISES.
Important thing there is to evolve a strong and healthy tradition for recognition and encouragement of talent and a good yardstick for calibrating performance. IPEC has to take a lead in showcasing a green campus too.I take this opportunity to wish you all a great success in all your endeavours.
