Subject: Status of BMSCEIAA at Bangalore

Hello Fellow ALUMNI’s

The following are some of the important information from previous IAA meetings that you all need to know and take further actions in IAA.

In IAA meetings,  IAA Bangalore Committee, President Dr. Kalgal emphasized the importance of BMSCE-IAA and how it is different from other alumni associations in its approach and objectives. He reitrated the necessity of accelerating our efforts to achieve the goals. (It is happenning now. IAA is helping in seminars. Goals and Mission of IAA has been clearly conveyed to BMSCE Principal, BMSCE Management, Most of the HOD’s know about IAA.)

He also said that, 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. (Job Placement of IAA is helping BMS Students and it is well liked by all at BMSCE. Scholarships will be announced in IAA.)

Further he told that, IAA will be working with all the Departments HOD’s and Staff. Then IAA assigned IAA members to different departments to work and to gather information.

(This is taking place in different departments now. It is gathering momentum. IAA needs cooperation from HOD’s and Staff.)

The following are some the actions of IAA that are planned to reach out to students.


· Career counseling
· Guidance forFurther studies
· Preparation for campus interview
· Helping out with projects

The first step will be a mock test to be conducted. These are the tasks that need to be carried out.

· Formulation of the question papers.
· Permission from the principal to conduct the same. (This is done)
· Awareness through posters, word of mouth and departments. (This was done during UTSAV 2004. All Departments have IAA Posters. Need to do on regular basis.)
· Meeting to decide on the particulars of the same.

Mock interviews and seminars held by more experienced members/non-members.

Thus the need to rope in more alumni from earlier years

Conducting of test/s along with the placement cell. (BMSCE Placement Officer has agreed for this.)

Other issues, topics and ideas were:

· Having 2 representatives from each class
· Finance
· e-mentoring
· Melton group
· Spreading IAA awareness

The following is the action plan of IAA.  This is taken at an IAA meeting.

Setting the question papers: Aptitude and technical papers.

Permission from the principal of BMSCE to conduct the same.

(This has been done and BMSCE Management has agreed for this and IAA can use the PLACEMENT Room)

Awareness. Reach out to students of 6th semester through HOD’s and students. Also making posters and pamphlets for the same.

Vision – “To make BMS the best non-IIT institution in the nation by 2010”

This VISION was suggested by one BMS ALUMNI currently in USA

Let us work together in IAA.

If you have any questions, please write to me.
