B.M.S. College of Engineering, International Alumni Association 

BMSCE IAA embrace the fact that today’s students are tomorrow’s Alumni

BMSCE IAA by TEAM effort reaching out to BMS ALUMNI’s across


Together Everyone Achieves More ” TEAM “


IAA Bangalore Committee has emphasized the importance of BMSCE-IAA and how it is different from other alumni associations in its approach and objectives. IAA has reitrated the necessity of accelerating the efforts to achieve the goals.
IAA aims to be more proactive than other existing alumni associations. As we not only aspire to offer scholarships to deserving students, but also wish to conduct technical seminars, Talks and paper presentations on a regular basis apart from carrier – higher learning counseling and Job placement information.

IAA will be working with all the Departments HOD’s and Staff. Now IAA has assigned IAA members to different departments to work and to gather information of all Departments.

IAA is working with BMSCE Mountaineering Club “BMSCEMC” and planning to work with other BMS Students Associations existing at different departments at BMSCE.

IAA Moto……..

The alumni owes it to their alma mater to come back and interact with students.


Through IAA , alumni can discharge their obligation towards their college.


Alumni’s to take sense of pride and responsibility for doing these things in IAA.

IAA / ALUMNI can become MENTOR and we all can share the knowledge with students.

IAA / ALUMNI can arrange for your companies to go to college.

IAA / ALUMNI can give monthly classes in different subjects at college.

IAA / ALUMNI can help students who can’t afford to pay the fees of college.

IAA / ALUMNI can establish scholarships and assistantships for students at college.

IAA / ALUMNI can visit the campus and share thoughts with Faculty and Students.

IAA / ALUMNI can help it’s alma mater by giving suggestions and recomendations on improvements of it’s website, different departments and other usefull information to make our alma mater a known educational institution all around the world.

IAA / ALUMNI can work with departments and promote it.

IAA / ALUMNI can help in developing the laboratories.

IAA / ALUMNI can help the departments by procuring latest softwares.

IAA / ALUMNI can help in tieing up with some industries for Industry-Institute Interaction.

IAA / ALUMNI can help by conducting the work shops for faculty and students on latest advancements in the technology.

IAA / ALUMNI can come and give Lectures for students on latest technologies.

IAA / ALUMNI can help in doing the following (suggestions from HOD):

HODs are not in a position to convince and obtain grants for the developmental plans of their departments. For eg.,

a) Issuing merit certificates to TEN TOPPERS in each semester.

b) In addition , issue certificates to Ten toppers of Seventh semester on aggregate basis (aggregate from 1 to 7 semester) plus a farewell party.

c) Now a days ( almost one decade ) farewell partys are given by the 2, 4 and 6 Semester students by making collections of Rs.100/-, Rs.100/- and Rs 50/- respectively. Whatever be the shortfall will be made good by the HOD and his faculty. This practice is true for ECE, CSE and ISE departments.

Further in ECE department has introduced a Incentive scheme for Teachers from 2002 onwards. This is to give a Merit Certificate and a Cash award of Rs.1000/- to the teacher in whose course /subject more than 80% students score more than 80% marks excluding Internal Assesment marks (class marks).
