Can we meet in Chennai?

Hi Friends,

It is long time since we meet in Chennai. Can we meet on 26th January in Chennai? It is Sunday. I met Kalyanaraman last week and he is ready. Also I talked to Civil Kamaraj. He had the same feeling.

If we meet with family, Sudharsan will arrange Thermal power plant visit on that day. But we have to get prior permission. Please give your view on the meeting (with family or alone).

Rajesh will be back from US. Mostly he will be joining us.

ASSET Program Started Delivering Results

Hi All,

We have seen the first result of our program ASSET87. Zoho Corporation a software company visited our college for campus selection. Zoho is a software product company, which conducted first round of aptitude test and then programming test. Finally they conducted two interviews one HR and the other technical. Students with programming knowledge alone attended the aptitude test.

Around 35% of the final year students attended the aptitude test. In that group only 21% of the students completed the aptitude test. From the selected students, 45% of the students completed the programing test and qualified for the interview.

From those who attended the interview 41% has cleared both technical and HR interview and got selected. This percentage is very good compared to the number of students who cleared the aptitude.

Zoho has visited our college many years for campus interview and this is the first time more students got selected (last year five got selected in campus).

In spite of tougher approach from Zoho (as there are lesser companies visiting campus interview to various colleges due to economical slowdown), our juniors did well in the campus interview. Below message was sent by one of the students.

Hello sir,

I feel immense pleasure to inform you that 7 students from ACCET are placed in ZOHO corporation(Adventnet). Without your part it couldn’t be possible. So i feel highly privileged to express my gratitude to the team ASSET-87.

ASSET Session #10

I visited Karaikudi last month 6th to have a look at our ASSET program. I went to college around 10 am. The training program started at 10:30 am. There were four trainers involved in four halls.

It was a workshop (for email communication, time management and Team work), where the students are grouped into two European Car companies, which has five sub-groups (divisions). The Company has a GM and five Managers and they were competing for a deal. The two groups should do a car design and do a model in Three hours. During this period, the GM has to send periodic report to the trainer. During this program, they have to plan, interact, design and implement. It was really a good exercise for the students. All of them were enthusiastic and involved completely into the program. It is really value adding session for the students. In real field this is what happening for most of them but in their own industry.

Few students asked me why are you giving me a car model design I am a CSE student. I explained them, even though it is a car model, the principle behind this workshop is applicable irrespective of the branch. If you take a software industry, we have a product (CRM or ProectMgmt tool) to be delivered. You have various activities like design the product, DB design framework, UI flow, integration etc. Same with Civil industry where we have to have design the foundation and structure, and in execution, we have to have structural erection, interior & exterior finish and infrastructure development. All these need proper communication, time management and teamwork etc.

The student’s participation was really great.

I asked the students feedback on the program. They were highly happy and they gave few suggestions.

It was a nice experience.
