ISTE Chapter at Gautam Buddha University
On 21 May 2009 Gautam Buddha University family joined rest of the country to pay tribute to the noble initiative that has grown into a paradigmatic phenomenon in terms of Indian Society for Technical Education,the largest body of academicians and professionals in the country. The day witnessed a new beginning at Gautam Buddha University with ISTE establishing its chapter at the campus of the University. We firmly believe that opening of ISTE Chapter at Gautam Buddha University will provide a platform for intellectuals and industry professionals to come together for a productive engagement. The ISTE Chapter was inaugurated by Professor Ved Prakash, Vice Chairman-UGC and the inaugural function was presided over by Prof. R.S. Nirjar, Vice-Chacellor-Gautam Buddha University. It requires to be mentioned here that Prof. Nirjar served as the President of Indian Society for Technical Education for two successive terms from 2000-2002 to 2002-2005. Later on, in 2006 he was felicitated with Honorary Fellowship of the society as an extended gratitude for his services and contribution in imparting quality technical training in the country. He makes the ISTE Chapter at the University more privileged in the sense that the Chapter enjoys his visionary leadership and guidance. With a vision of "Sowing the seeds of innovations in young minds and nurturing them towards evolving into a true professional" we created this forum. Today, when the ideas and innovations are ruling the world, we are nurturing dreams, desires, vision and a quest for constant seek out of opportunities. Through this forum we intend to focus on creating world class professionals with an untiring quest for knowledge.
