Lets Talk Technology

My chance to talk geeky stuff, finally! :-) Ever since the inception of this idea(around September ’09) when me and Sharique brainstormed for endless nights on what all to include in the portal, I have silently worked on use cases for the various components.

This March we found Ankit. Or rather he found us. In essence two teams with the same motto got together to do what is the first for any engineering college across India! The team now boasts of 4 permanently posted guys i.e. me, Ankit, Deep and Sharique.(Will have the team page up soon for you guys to know more about us!)

So what is the plan? We are still working out the finer details but let me take this opportunity and brief you about the three primary components we have in the works. Also adding a brief paragraph on what all goals we plan to achieve with them.

The Main Faculty Website

JMI FET’s existence is limited to a few pages on the internet which is housed on the main JMI website. These pages are handled by FTK CIT, JMI. Technically speaking, we as FET guys are the guys who should be doing it. We are the ones who possess the technical competence as engineers to build our website(s). Handling a website being run by the faculty itself is a lot easier. Regular updates is what I mean by that.

JMI FET attracts a humungous number of applications from across India. FYI the number of forms sold by this faculty alone is 32.000+! And in today’s age of thriving virtual medium(s) of information it is our duty to portray our true self to our target audience. We have arguably the best faculty in the whole of Delhi Region(after IITD IMHO) and some amazing infrastructure(which gains a different dimension when you pay heed to the fact that unlike other competing colleges we are a part of an autonomous Central University). In short we are much much more than we are able to market.

The site will include exhaustive information about faculty members, admission procedure, infrastructure capabilities, course information, examination schedule and a lot more! Working on a comprehensive list which i will be publishing soon.

Community Portal

The first of the sub-domains. Shariq and Ankit’s words of ‘A college is just as good as its alumni and its alumni are as good as its alumni network’ are ringing in my head as I write this part of the article.

It will be a highly customizable social networking site. Personalized so that each and every one of you feels totally at home. The hope is to extensively network FET alumni using this portal.

Job Portal

Placements is the one place where we have not performed upto our potential to date. Umpteen reasons can be given for the same but that isn’t the intent of this blog post.

The portal hopes to list job openings for JMI applicants. To add value to their resumes, JMI students can pick up handsome internships, again listed by their alumni!

All in all, we have set off on a pretty exciting journey here. Its not going to be easy and we would want each and everyone of you to put you best foot forward and help us in our efforts. Its just as much your faculty and your college as it is ours. Let us all get together and make this college achieve its righteous position. Lets make JMI proud of us!

Take care until next time!

    Well said Imaran.
    I am very much impressed with u and ur guys works.
    I too was thinking something like this to happen. I think u all had taken a good step in right direction, which JAMIANs will always be thankful to u all.
    This’ll help make our seniors, leaving the campus , to remain in contact with the juniors and thus interaction between them increase. This ‘ll help our juniors to know about the problems faced by the seniors in the company and how are they managing it to resolve them and how we can, in our college life, work on ourself so as not to let this type of problems to interfere in our placement with high package.

    Wishing u all
    ALL THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
