Year 2009 is SILVER JUBILEE YEAR for Graduates of BMSCE 1979-1984 Batch of Students from BMS College of Engineering.  BMSCE IAA has contacted several ALUMNI’s of this batch.
 
Here is a letter from one of the ALUMNI from 1979-1984 batch:
 
Hello Mr. Kumarswamy
 
This is an excellent idea. I’m a graduate in the 1979-84 (last semester) batch. I’m happy to serve on the committee and help with the organization.
 
In addition, I have been wondering if there will be an opportunity to assist in improving curriculum and education at BMSCE. If you have some ideas along these lines, please advice.
 
Best regards,
Shiva

Welcome to the World of BMSCE IAA !
 
 
BMSCE IAA:: “Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress and working together is success.” Henry Ford
 
 
Today’s students are tomorrow’s Alumni
 
 
The BMSCE IAA is an organization of dedicated alumni’s and supporters committed in facilitating a fruitful interaction among alumni and current students for continuing development, in enriching the BMSCE experience for the current students, in fostering support to the Alma mater. BMSCEIAA hopes to achieve this through several programs instituted specifically to achieve this objective.
 
 
BMSCEIAA is a platform for current students and alumni to interact, inform and invest in their Alma Mater. BMSCEIAA contributes ideas and funding for programs, services and professional development opportunities that will help shape the future of the institution. BMSCEIAA includes more than three thousand alumni from BMSCE from as far back as the 50’s who graduated from the Engineering, Management and Pure Sciences disciplines. Becoming an active member of this association provides an individual a selfless way to give back to the college and a way to reconnect with fellow alumni as well as current students. BMSCEIAA believes and thrives on teamwork. Alumni and current students serve on different alumni interest groups, departmental committees, and affiliate programs. Members not only work tirelessly on spreading the word around about the association and the college and recruiting new members but also providing intellectual stimulation in the form of discussion forums, exchange of ideas and instituting Scholarships and Assistantships.
 
 
IAA Motto
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 good things at BMSCE
IAA shall build a strong fraternity helping each other and the future alumni (present students)
 
 
IAA Aims and Objectives
To continue to serve the interests of BMS College of Engineering and its alumni.

Encourage united alumni support for its advancement.
To promote mentoring programs that guide the BMSCE students about jobs and careers and help them build their professional networks.
To provide scholarships/financial assistance to deserving students of BMSCE
To organize social get-togethers for alumni

_____________________________________________________
 
 
BMSCE IAA is reaching out to all ALUMNI’s and Students of BMS College of Engineering. BMSCE IAA is contacting Alumni’s from different YEARS, BATCHES and BRANCHES.
 
In Year 2005, BMSCE IAA did get to contact ALUMNI’s from 1975 – 1980 Batch with great difficulties and convinced the ALUMNI’s to do something positive in the year 2005. About 25 Alumni’s agreed and Mr. Vijay Lathia took the lead in this working with BMSCE IAA. BMSCE 1980 Alumni’s set up THREE Scholarships per year for Five years. They collected 75000 rupees among them and did this.
 
 
BMSCE IAA proud to announce this achievement to other ALUMNI’s of BMSCE from different YEARS, BATCHES and BRANCHES.
 
 
It is hard to get hold of ALUMNI’s from these years. Even if we get hold of ALUMNI’s, it is hard to get response from them. Persistence pays!! Because BMSCE does not have a DATABASE of all of it’s GRADUATES. 
 
 
Year 2009 is SILVER JUBILEE YEAR for Graduates of BMSCE 1979-1984 Batch of Students from BMS College of Engineering.  BMSCE IAA has contacted several ALUMNI’s of this batch.

IAA activities[Nov 8th 2004 Letter from Dr. Manmohan Kalgal-President of BMSCE IAA, for Studnets and Alumni’s]

Posted by bmsceiaa on October 22, 2007

This is for the benefit for NEW ALUMNI,s and current STUDENTS at BMSCE, to know what had happened in BMSCE IAA.

IAA requests all ALUMNI’s and current Students at BMSCE to participate in IAA activties and promote your own IAA.

Date:  Mon, 8 Nov 2004 10:50:31 -0800 (PST)
From:  “Dr.Manamohan Kalgal” <kalgal_mr@yahoo. com>

Subject: Status of BMSCEIAA at Bangalore
To: BMSCE-IAA-owner@ yahoogroups. com

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.

MENTORING PROGRAM.

· 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.

Thanks
Sincerely

[BMSCE-IAA] IIM-B grad turns down Rs 1-cr job – way to go ALUMNI !!!!

Posted by bmsceiaa on February 22, 2007

 IIM-B grad turns down Rs 1-cr job

http://www.ibnlive.com/news/india/02_2007/iimb-grad-turns-down-rs-1cr-job-34183.html

New Delhi: This is a unique story about a budding corporate professional, for whom music means more than money. That is precisely what 25-year-old IIM-Bangalore graduate Manasi Prasad has done when she decided to turn down a Rs 1-crore job offer from a US investment bank to pursue a career in music.

As a student of IIM-Bangalore, Manasi did her summer internship programme with Goldman Sachs in New York. Last November, the investment bank got back to her with a lucrative job offer with a Rs 1 crore pay package.

But Manasi has other ideas in mind. So, she has turned the offer, preferring instead to wait for the summer placements, which begin next month. She says she is keen to take up a job in Bangalore so that she can straddle between her job and interests in Carnatic classical music and Bharatanatyam.

Manasi is currently training under vocalist R K Padmanabha’s tutelage. Her mother Tara Prasad was her first guru in music. She says she has been into music since the age of four and she has already received many a recognition. Manasi already has 10 music albums to her credit, Meera Madhuri being a recent one. She has performed all over the country and also abroad, including in Singapore, USA and Europe.

In the long-term, Manasi is in fact planning to start an institution in classical music in Bangalore. “I want the institution to be like IIM-B and it should restore Carnatic music to its roots,” The New Indian Express quoted her as saying.

And even the IIM degree that Manasi is pursuing is only to add a brand value to her music career. “After getting a BE degree in IT from BMS College, it took me one year to decide to get into IIM-B. I would be able to achieve a lot more than the other graduates from IIM-B as I will combine my analytical skills that I earned from IIM with my creative skills and build something unique,” she told the newspaper.

IIM-B has been a wonderful experience for Manasi, yet, she went through her bit of struggle trying to balance between academics and music. “I was never ready to sacrifice music. That meant, sacrificing sleep and social life, which was a test on my will power. When all the students were seen with their books, I was busy with my tampura,” Manasi says.
