This meeting witnessed the highest attendance till

Mr. Kumaraswamy the executive Director of IAA hosted
the meeting.

The evening was truly a culmination of experience,
enthusiasm and affection towards our alma mater.
It was a meeting to remember since the year of
graduation of people in the meeting spanned across
four decades
Mr. Seetharam of batch 63 was the senior most. 

The college management gave a positive gesture by
granting IAA the permission to use the Geo lab of
civil department as the venue of meeting.

It began by Mr. Kumaraswamy welcoming all the alumni
and coordinating a session of introduction of all the

gathering and made following observations.

1.	He spoke about the top quality of engineers that
BMSCE has churned out and expressed his desire that
alumni should contribute more actively to college.
2.	His next concern was that, technical education
currently imparted in engineering curriculum is not in
synchronization with the demands in the industry. He
rightly pointed out that even through this existing
system couldn’t be changed; alumni can conduct
seminars and model and upgrade the student’s knowledge
as per the industry’s requirements.
3.	He observed that first, we must find from students
what are their needs, and how we can assist them in
academics and allied facilities before launching a
Mentoring program.

officer, for his dedication and achievement of placing
a majority of 2004 graduates in good companies.

field worldover
He reiterated that he and alumni from USA would always
assure their best support for the BMSCE and IAA

Dr Manmohan Kalgal then addressed the gathering.
1.	Dr. Kalgal’s opening statement was ‘even through we
can have lot of plans and we can make a long list of
proposed activities, IAA’ s need of the hour is
Volunteers.” He called to all the alumni to kindly
involve and be available when needed.
The purpose of having an association is to make BMS
students and alumni come together He stressed on the
importance of alumni meeting the students of BMS,
management, and faculty personally and building a
relation between them and IAA.
2.	He spoke about the importance of having alumni
meetings as often as possible.
3.	All stated that alumni must strive to execute the
plans and do its bit for the Alma mater.

Then, Mr. kumaraswamy chalked out a plan of action for
IAA activities.

1.	He spoke of the Yahoo groups and how it has been of
assistance to student with its job placement section.
2.	 Regarding IAA membership drive and fees, he told
this will be put up before members after further
discussions among the alumni.
3.	The main objective of IAA is to establish a network
of BMS alumni world over.
4.	Yahoo group discussions and telephonic meetings
play a major role in achieving this.
5.	He told alumni that an account has been opened in
Bank of Allah bad in the name of BMSCE IAA.
6.	A trust will be formed to govern and finance all
activities of IAA.
7.	This will lead to the realization of all other
sponsorship and scholarship programs 

Mr. Badarinath spoke of alumni allotting their time
and being proactive in membership drive.

Sreekala made certain observations regarding inclusion
of current students of BMSCE in IAA.
She told that current students should be involved more
in all activities of IAA.
She also stressed on the acceptance of IAA by the
college management.
Once the college gives its absolute consent for all
activities for IAA on campus lot more students will
come forward and be a part of the association.

Mr. Kumaraswamy then, assured all this will happen in
due time and he will be meeting all the concerned
people in the BMS management during his stay in inda

It was decided that the next meeting would be on 18th
December for which all the faculty and management of
