Companies that are changing the outlook of technology

As was the case in the 90s, while monetary policy changed and tax reforms were likely to dominate the macroeconomic backdrop for equity markets and common folks, it was believed that technology will continue to be driven by its ability to increase productivity and disrupt the old economy. And as for today, technology is what drives the entire world.


It’s obvious that technology is all science and maths and not everyone will like to grasp what it brings to the world. For that, people with imagination and creativity come forth and bring a new curve to the technology with products and content which amuses mass audience and bridges the world more closely.

A Jovial outlook on Medha 2k18

In the monochrome life cycle of a student, which mainly is a cycle of eating, sleeping, attending lectures, and repeating, ‘College Fests’ shows a certain degree of fluctuations in the excitement levels of students. Why wouldn’t it? As the festive season slowly marches closer and closer with time, every student can taste the sweet scent of hard work; hard work of not only the students organizing it but the ones striving over their performing arts with incessant practices.
MEDHA is Sangamner’s largest cultural festival hosted by Amrutvahini College of Engineering's (AVCOE). The inauguration ceremony took place on 4th January 2018 in the presence of all the chief guests. The event was coordinated by Prof. G. B. Kale, managed by Prof. V.B. Dhumal and executed by Mr. A.B. Shinde.


This year, Medha brought to stage some amazing performances in Spot Poetry, Singing,Fashion Show, Instrument Playing, Skits, Yoga, GD and Debates. The dais had been decorated with distinguished guests. Prabhakar More, Pooja Bedi, Bhargavi Chirmule, Shyam Rajput and Achyut Godbole were the star attractors of the event.
Cultural festivals help to preserve our varied cultural heritage. As a whole, Cultural festivals give the opportunity to develop the qualities of mutual respect, love, communal harmony and national integration. We hope Medha remains a unique point in every student’s life where they can express their thoughts and share their creativity with everyone.

Tech Gap: An Uprising Problem

What comes to your mind when you hear “tech skills gap”? You think of skills traditionally associated with information technology firms like coding, software development, and network security management. If compared with hard skills, the gap in applied skills reaches across all sectors. This affects everyone from artists to healthcare workers to business professionals.

There’s a huge demand for workers with tech skills and it continues to soar up every day, across all industries. To better understand the problem and its solutions, consider the following five key points and the opportunities that this Tech Skills Gap offers:
Photo Credit: https://media.licdn.com
1. THE GAP EXISTS ACROSS ALL INDUSTRIES
Tech skills aren't specific just to the technology sector, but it runs across every industry. The main aim of these essential skills includes the ability to use technology to benefit the organization. Many people lack the necessary skills. That's a gap many people don't anticipate, and it's also an amazing opportunity to learn new skills and hone the existing.

2. DEMAND OUTPACES SUPPLY
There are more than 500,000 computing jobs open across the nation, but less than 50,000 students graduated with a computer science background in 2016. And the main hub of the graduated ones was IT alone. And this is the same issue with other fields, such as healthcare and business.

A survey conducted amongst the industrial hub showed:
  • 62% of students coming out of school aren't prepared with the necessary tech skills
  • 11% agree that school is effective in meeting skill needs
  • Three out of four employers feel that finding an employee with all job description requirements is rare

3. EDUCATORS MUST CREATE SOLUTIONS
Educators, institutions and industry advisers need to work together to create curriculums that meet today's demands. It's not only on the shoulders of employers and employees. This will likely include the movement toward an "anytime, anywhere" educational model to bring online and onsite opportunities together.

4. STUDENTS AND EMPLOYEES MUST TAKE INITIATIVE
As more and more business require workers with applied tech and latest hard skills, the present generation is tasked to keep up with the flow to avoid falling into that gap. Advancing technology doesn't allow anyone to become contented. For those who see the gap as an opportunity, it's a great time to learn new skills and sharpen existing ones.

We at Amrutvahini College of Engineering (AVCOE), provide a distinctive excellence driven engineering education that will groom future generations of engineers and entrepreneurs. We aim to create self-disciplined, physically fit, mentally robust and morally strong engineers and technocrats with a high degree of integrity and sense of purpose. We open a new window, “window of innovation” where we put technology at the core of our field and help our students to build that ‘tech gap’ which will help them to challenge the ever-advancing technology.

6 Books Every Engineering Student Must Read!

Books, both fiction and nonfiction, offer a way for readers to learn from the lessons and mistakes of others, so that you can re-apply that knowledge without having to start from scratch.
More than just entertainment, the stories in books help shortcut your own learning curve so that you can learn and grow faster.

Here are few books recommended by AVCOE which we urge our every engineering student to read.

  • Especially for a career like engineering, which is academically tough, reading this book might help one to learn the art of stress management and productivity enhancement.

There are times when we look at the Mother Teresa's of this world and realize that one life can make a huge difference. But if we are wise, we discover that often we don’t have to look any further than our own backyard.

Why Read It?
  • This book covers creative ways to successfully balance four major aspects of life : family, money, work and time.
  • The program rests on what the authors call three gotta do’s-  validate expectations, optimize effort and develop navigational intelligence.

This is a self-help book which is the pioneer of this genre. This book is a guide to improving a person's aura in the world.

  • The book is inclined at bringing out clarity in the way business setup is changing. It presents a significant account on what role Indian entrepreneurs will play in the coming years.

This novel is an enchanting one and has inspired a devoted following around the public. This story - dazzling in its inspiring wisdom - is about an Andalusian shepherd boy named Santiago who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of a treasure buried in the Pyramids.

It will accentuate creativity in your regular lives and add the much needed entertainment!
