STUDENT ACTIVITIES

Student activities are focused on the development of the individual's professional and personal growth. Students get ample opportunities to give expression to their creative energies and develop skills through sports events, cultural events, etc. In order to monitor and accelerate extracurricular activities among students, the Institute has constituted the following student committees with a Faculty Coordinator:

Placement Committee

The Institute's placement activities are coordinated by a committee comprising elected student representatives, faculty members with Training and Placement Officer as the Placement Coordinator. It acts as a liaisoning agency between the Institute and the industry.

Cultural Committee

AIM believes in holistic all-round development of the students beyond that of pure academics. The Committee provides the students with a platform within and outside the Institute to bring out the best of their talents. Other than sending teams to various competitions organised by other B-Schools and colleges, a number of in-house contests are also hosted.

Sports Committee

Physical activities are encouraged and recognised as facilitators of tough physical and mental endurance. This committee organises a lot of sporting and allied inter and intra institute sports activities like Volleyball, Cricket, Basketball, Badminton, Table Tennis, Chess matches, etc.

Alumni Association

Every effort is made to keep in constant touch with our valued alumni. Their continued patronage in the form of guest lectures, training & placement and regular feedback immensely help the students in getting an informal perspective of corporate life.

National Service Scheme (NSS)

The Institute has two units of NSS of 100 volunteers each with two faculty coordinators. These units organise various social activities like blood donation camps, tree plantation, road safety and general health awareness programs within the campus & surrounding rural areas.

The Institute has a Training and Placement Cell headed by the Training and Placement Officer. The office has been provided with the necessary infrastructure and secretarial assistance to enable it to function smoothly.

Publications:

The Cell publishes brochures for the MBA and MCA batches, as well as the Quarterly Newsletter.

Functions:

  • Placement of the MBA and MCA batches and all related activities, viz. formation of Placement Cells, working out the Placement Calendar, printing of the Placement Brochure, mailing, maintaining databases, making presentations, organising campus interviews, etc.
  • Arranging Summer Training for the MBA and BBA Students.
  • Organising seminars, guest lectures, and industrial visits in association with the members of the Corporate Relations Cell.
  • Printing and mailing of the quarterly newsletter, AIM News.
  • Developing and maintaining mailing lists of industrialists, company executives and academicians for different purposes like MCA placements, MBA placements,Newsletter, invitation for functions organised by the Institute, greeting cards, etc.
  • Coordinating with the members of the print and electronic media to ensure sufficient publicity of the Institute’s activities.

Final Placement Procedures:

There is a time bound, set procedure for both the courses. Accordingly, the following activities are performed:

  • A Placement Cell is formed, consisting of student members (numbering approx.10% of the batch size, for now), Head of Department, an additional faculty member, and the Training & Placement Officer who is the coordinator of the cell. After a formal meeting with the Director, the Placement Cell works as an independent unit and performs all the processes associated with final placements as also formulating the rules for the same.
  • The Brochure is printed and mailed out to various organisations, along with a covering letter signed by the Director, inviting them for campus interviews.
  • Presentations are made by groups of students to prospective organisations in different cities. These are followed by visits of the Training and Placement Officer along with the students to various cities for the purpose of follow up and formally inviting companies for campus placements.

Campus placements are organised on mutually convenient dates. A candidate is officially deemed selected on receipt of written communication from the organization in context.

Training

Under the University curriculum, all students of MBA and BBA have to undergo a mandatory 6-8 weeks of training after the end of their second and fourth semester respectively. Towards the end, the Institute has the following mechanism:

  • Around the month of February, the forms are made available to the students so that they can apply for training to the industry of their choice. They are also counseled on the importance of the training, the standard policy and attitude of the organisations in providing training.
  • All the students are allotted faculty members as guides for consultation during the process as well as during the actual training and till the presentation of the report.
  • Receipt of letter from the organization concerned, willing to allow a particular student as trainee, completes the formality at this stage.
  • On receipt of Final Examination Schedule from the University, all the companies who have confirmed the acceptance of candidates in written are informed of the actual duration and dates of the summer training.
  • The students are monitored at regular intervals and the Institute arranges training for those students who express inability to do so on their own.
  • On the last day of their regular examinations, a counseling session is conducted in which: (a) Students are given a form which has to be filled on joining the training, and certified by the officer to whom the student is reporting. The receipt of this form at the Institute completes the joining formalities. (b) Students are given a handout which gives information on the dos and don’ts during the training as also the format for the Report, number of copies to be submitted, deadlines, etc.
  • On reopening of the Institute after summer vacations, the students are asked to submit their reports along with the certificates indicating completion of training. Presentations are then scheduled to be made by the students before a committee of faculty members.
  • After evaluation, project reports are sent to the library for future reference.

MCA students have to undergo six months’ training under the University guidelines, during the sixth semester. The basic mechanism for them remains the same, with the only difference being that the task of arranging the training is much more elaborate, i.e. training is considered as Training-cum-Placement and hence, all the activities are conducted in accordance with that viz. formation of the Placement Cell, printing of brochure, mailing of brochure, presentations made by students and faculty members in different places like New Delhi, Noida, Gurugram, Chandigarh, Ludhiana and campus interviews. Thereafter, the process remains the same as above.

For continuous counseling of each and every student at the Institute throughout his/ her stay, the Punjab Technical University has devised a system of tutorials. Teachers are appointed as advisors for a batch of 15-20 students. A Chief Counselor is also appointed to coordinate activities of the advisors. A list of such advisors is also sent to the University. In order to make the advisory system more effective, records are maintained by the advisors and their functions are clearly defined as follows:

A. Records to be maintained of each student:

Every advisor is expected to maintain the following records in a file of each student allotted to him/ her:

  • Bio-data with photograph.
