Dutch experts to deliver lectures in Punjab's SBS State Technical Campus
Shaheed Bhagat Singh State Technical Campus (SBSSTC) in Ferozepur has been selected by 'PUM' institute of Netherland government to deliver keynote lectures by their faculty on different areas of Technology.

This will enhance the employability of students, and expose them and the faculty to latest developments in the field of science and technology.

PUM stands for ‘Programma Uitzending Managers’ which is a Dutch acronym for ‘Manager Deployment Programme’. It is an organization of senior experts in various fields who connect entrepreneurs in developing countries and emerging markets with senior experts from the Netherlands each of whom has gained at least 30 years of experience in a business environment.

Under the project, experts in various fields shall deliver lectures at SBSSTC, Ferozepur. In the first phase, Dr. Jan Borkent shall begin his lecture series from 3rd of August and interact with the students and faculty for 25 days followed by more experts in the coming months.

The SBSSTC is the only state managed engineering college declared by Punjab government as “State Technical Campus” based on the report of All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), and most of its faculty has Ph.D. degree from IITs of the country.

The institute also recently received a grant of Rs 10 crore from MHRD and Rs 2 crore from the AICTE for purchasing state-of-art equipments and developing infrastructure. Many experts from IIT Roorkee, IIT Delhi, IIT Ropar and from other reputed institutes are also visiting as guest faculty to give world class exposure of technology to the students.

The institute Director, Dr. T.S Sidhu, who is himself an alumni of IIT Roorkee, said, “The developments in the institution, are on account of tremendous motivation and support from Anil Joshi, Minister for Technical Education & Industrial Training and the Chairman of the Board of Governors, Dinesh Lakra, who is an eminent industrialist of the country.”

“We will continue to build relationship with abroad universities in the pursuit of improving the quality of Technical Education,” added Dr. Sidhu.

It is pertinent to mention that recently during the month of June, Dr. Sidhu and Chairman BOG Lakra visited US’ top ranking universities including California University, Harvard Business School and MIT University Boston. The institute is actively pursuing the proposal to have collaboration with the US Universities for giving two months training to second and third year students and six months training to final year students in the US universities.
