Note from alumnus to BMSCEIAA

Hello everyone!

I am a 1994-98 batch alumnus of electrical &
electronics engg (EEE)& am currently pursuing my MBA.
I was with TVS Electronics previously.

I do agree with Arun Cavale that speaker sessions are
a good way to build student-alumni contact. They offer
alumni an ideal way to remain connected with the alma
matar and also give them access to fresh talent. 

For students, this will be an excellent opportunity to
meet with and learn from the experiences of the alumni
and this would hopefully help them better understand
the current trends and requirements in the industry
and hence enable them to make better informed career
decisions. 

Also, it gives them access to their own people who are
already active in their targetted industry/field and
this can certainly prove to be an advantage in our
competitive world where "who you know" is probably
becoming more relevant than just "what you know"!

It is therefore a very good means for them to seek
help and advice.

It will be great if the IAA in partnership with the
college/ dept management can get this going. Kudos to
Arun for sticking his neck out and I'm sure the others
too will be willing to share their experiences with
the current batch at BMS.

Let me end this rather long mail with a note to Arun
(& others like him who "crossed over" into
management): 
While it may be true that Kinematics, Thermodynamics,
Kirchoff's laws and Electromagnetic fields have given
way to Porter's forces, NPV & Discounted cash flow
analysis, Hedge ratio's and
interest-exchange-inflation rate theories, I still
think it will be very useful if you do interact with
the current engg students in addition to the MBA batch
at BMS as you will bring in the BE-MBA perspective and
also be a good source of info (& I dare say a "reality
check"!)for those looking to follow in your footsteps!

Hope this program gets the support of the rest of the
team and does start soon.

Thanks & Warm Regards,

Anand.

To: Venkatappa Kumaraswamy <bmscealumni@yahoo.com>

Hello,

I can go to BMSCE on any day between May 11 and May 14 to give a talk on general or specific subjects. I’m currently working in the Computer  Science field, so I would prefer giving a general talk to all students about wireless networks and security issues. I have lost touch with EE since 1996.

I will send my CV later. I prefer not to share my photograph – is this OK?
