Hi all,

Yoga classes for the final years have started by Mr. C R Ajith Sen, Lr. in Physical Education, Sl. Gr. The students have opined that the classes are going well and they have found it to be very useful in the initial phase itself, to get relaxed off the hurry-berry of professional education. “It gives mental and physical relax for me with in these 4 days of practice”, said Jishad A V (2006-10). Ajith Sen sir is an internationally certified trainer.

On 30-Jul-2009, personnel of IBM, Cannonical Ltd. and United Nations visited the college campus and gave a joint-lecture on IT-trends, Open Source, etc. This is a joint venture by the aforesaid organizations and they’ve launched it in CEC, for the first time in Kerala. The lectures were from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM and have been found to be very useful to the attendees. May be, CEC could make a big leap out of these contacts… Contacts from Cannonical Ltd. was obtained through Mr. Manoj Iyer (CEC 1994-98), who’s a kernel engineer there. Thanks to him.

CAMPION 09 works are going well. Minutes of meetings shall be updated soon. Visit: http://campion.ceconline.edu

Alumni is requested to kindly check their inbox, and if they’ve not got a mail from us, kindly take this as an official invitation by your juniors to the event. Kindly provide us with some good contacts of resources for the events, if any, and of course, financial assistance. Contact us: cecsummit09@gmail.com

Some “archeological items” of IHRD shall be moved to CEC from a polytechnic at Calicut. It shall be a treasure for our college and shall be used for SUMMIT 09 also. It shall remain in our college itself, even after SUMMIT 09. It includes, old big PCs, disks, etc.

Infrasructure development in CEC

Hey guys,

The renovation work of the college building was a longtime dream of CECians.. The future developments in CEC are dependent on the  completion of the work pertaining to the second buliding which forms the part of the original layout of CEC..

We guys have some great news..The tender has been taken up by the PWD as most if you must have already known.The tender is  a  general works Tender and the building plan and such stuff have been accepted. The tender was to close on the 23rd of July,2009 but has been extended to the 19th of August. The tender is one which calls for several contractors for the various works.And a group of contractors will be selected form a list of many.   The contractors related to construction work have already accepted the tender and only the contractors for the Electrical work need to be approved…and that is reason for the extention of the tendering process.

As of now, there is no hindrance  to the work from starting.  If everything goes according to the plan, the work can begin within a month after the tender is taken. The estimated  time for completion is 18 months, and the cost estimate is 2 crore rupees. 45 lakhs have already been given for the work to start.

The building can hopefully be occupied within a year and the first two floors will be given the priority, according to the Principal’s office. In that case the EE branch can be moved over to there with some extended facilities..and the M. Tech programme in CEC can begin  at the earliest, once the work is complete.

Hoping for the best,

Richie (2007-11 CS).

Hi everyone,

“Excellence is not an act, but a habit.” As you know the training and placement cell is organising for us(2010 batch)  a series of preperation sessions to make us competent to face the “multi-level filtering” techniques the companies may most probably employ during these recession period. So my primary request to all my batchmates is to make maximum use of the oppurtunity.

We have Mock tests every Thursdays which include aptitude, verbal and technical questions to be answered within a particular time limit. As you know, these tests are the screening through which the companies may eliminate more than half the candidates. So the situation demands to be a master in this. So I humbly request everybody to have your homeworks done before you appear for the test. After the test,try to get through every question once more with the right answers with you. I guarantee you,’ You will get through”.

Next, the group discussion. We are planning to conduct the group discussions in two different stages. First Intra class levels, that is Gd’s within the class.This may enable some of our fellow mates to get through with their stage-fright and get into the real pulse. Second level may be inter class levels.

Let me emphasize that this level lets include technical topics too for the gd. For eg; Advantages of thermal power station or Java and .Net. So these type of topics need some technical backgrounds. So lets prepare some points by our own.

A session by SPARK has been arranged at college auditorium on 10th July, Friday 12:45-2pm to get expertize ideas on GD’s and interviews. Please make the best of the situation. (Sorry to my Muslim friends that we could not get another slot to arrange this session. Hope you can understand.)

The face to face on how to face an interview by Liju Philip sir is getting good responses everyday. Let me convey my sincere regards to him on behalf of 2010 batch as he is delivering his precious time for us everyday. Those who haven’t appeared please take a review from those who have got the session, so that you won’t miss the chance.

Some other sessions are under proposals, a session by IMS may be next weeek and a seminar by KITA(Kerala IT alliance) on 24th July. Confirmations on these will be given later.

Some more suggestions to my friends from my part:

1.  Lets practice to speak English among us. Atleast during class hours. This really works.

2. Please be punctual for the tests. Look on to that everybody appears for the test.

3. Be present for the GD and Mock interviews at the slot allotted for you by the TPC members. Else you are taking away a chance of yourself and your friends. So please coperate with your TPC members. If you can’t come, inform them at the earliest.

Time is very less for us. But lets squeeze the pulp out of it. Lets make this joint venture a mega-grand successand hope and pray that we could break all the placement records this year.

So friends, we look on to your suggestions and feedback.

Best regards ,

Nirmal Sajo Thomas
