Annual Report 2015-16

Honourable Chief Guest of the day, Justice Santosh Hegde and all the dignitaries on the dais, Good afternoon! It is my proud privilege to place before you the annual report of the college for the academic year 2015 – 16.

Dr. NSAM First Grade College comes under the umbrella of the Nitte Education Trust(R), Mangalore, pioneers in the field of education for the last 35+ years. Nitte Education Trust has the distinction of having a University and 30+ institutions the salient ones being the colleges for Medicine, Engineering, Management, Dentistry and others. The Dr. NSAM First Grade College was established in 1999 to cater to the needs of students in need of quality education. It is affiliated to the Bangalore University.

In recent years our institution has steadily been building capacity to create a truly great college. In my view, greatness requires four things: wonderful students enjoying a tremendous student experience; very experienced and dedicated faculty; a supportive campus learning environment; and substantial financial resources. We have been indeed fortunate to have all four.

The institution has the benevolent patronage of its President, Mr. N. Vinaya Hegde. and the guidance of Dr. N.R Shetty, former Vice Chancellor of Bangalore University. Offering a blend of serenity and modernity, our college is situated in the sprawling 23 acre NMIT campus at Govindapura, Gollahalli, Yelahanka, Bengaluru.

Currently the college offers the 3 year B.Com degree course and has a student strength of 343 students. A team of 14 dedicated, well qualified and experienced teaching faculties and an efficient team of 10 non teaching staff help run the institution in an effective manner. Mr. Rohit Punja, the Administrator of the Nitte Education Trust is our mentor and guide in the daily administration of the institution and his eye for detail and vision for the institution helps us to stay focussed.

The College has 17 well ventilated classrooms, a well equipped Library, 2 fully equipped Computer Labs, two Audio Visual Rooms with Projection Facility, a new Seminar Hall with state of the Art Projection Facility, an Open Air Auditorium, Hostel Facility and playgrounds for Sports apart from NSS and NCC Rooms, a Ladies Common Room and a Commerce Lab.

The Library currently has a total of 6710 books, 834 reference books and subscribes to 9 leading newspapers in English and Kannada and 19 journals. This year we also initiated a SC/ST book bank. Our institution aims for holistic education and hence apart from offering the 3 year B.Com degree course, the college encourages every staff member and student to participate in various events, workshops and inter collegiate fests. It is our endeavour to nurture students so that they are prepared, in all respects, for life and the challenges they will face. This year has been a very productive one in more ways than one.

Our staff have participated in several national and international conferences and presented papers. Various Resource persons were also invited to share their experience and knowledge on various subjects with our students. All these have been highlighted in our college magazine – PRISM 2015-16. Some of our staff have been involved in Question Paper Setting and Invigilation as Sitting Squad for the Bangalore University Examinations apart from the regular evaluation work. Some of our staff members have also authored books. This year 1 of our staff members - Dr. Hemavathi was awarded her doctorate. Three others are working on their doctorate.

Our students have participated in NIGMA, an inter collegiate fest at Dr. NSAM First Grade College, Nitte and the annual Kreedotsava at Nitte. They have also participated in the Sports events organized by Bangalore University and Anadyanta an annual inter collegiate fest organized by NMIT where 4 of our students got 1st and 2nd place for different events.

Sports, NCC, NSS and Cultural and Literary Events coupled with Commerce and Management activities allow students to express their creativity and talents in diverse areas. Hence, programmes such as Freshers Day, Litfest, Product Launch and Product Marketing by the Commerce and Management Committee, Cultural Competitions such as Collage, Mehendi, Cook without Fire, Rangoli, the annual Sports Day and the Talent and Ethnic Day were organized for this purpose.

A total of 45 students have been placed so far.

Two Governing Council meetings were held on 3rd September 2015 and 22nd March 2016 respectively. The members gave valuable suggestions for the improvement of the college.

Last year, our college day was a stupendous success with the final year students really going out of their way to put up a magnificent show. This year also as you can see our Final Years have put in their efforts for an equally grand show.

I would like to place on record my deep gratitude and appreciation to our generous President Mr. N.Vinaya Hegde and our Mentor Dr. N.R Shetty. I also thank Mr. Rohit Punja, the Administrator of the Nitte Education Trust for his constant guidance and advice in the day to day running of the institution. He has initiated several measures that have helped the institution streamline its processes and optimize its potential.

I also thank the following heads of our sister institutions - the Principal of NMIT – Dr. Nagaraj and his staff, the Director of NSOM- Prof. Manjunath and his staff, Dr. Harish, HOD of our MBA Department and his staff and Ms. Rajalakshmy, the P.U Principal and her Staff for their whole hearted co-operation in all our endeavours.

The staff is the backbone of any institution and I thank each one my teaching and non teaching staff members for their unstinted support, collaboration and participation in all the college activities. An institution derives its image and strength from its students and it has been our endeavour to mould our students in a holistic manner to become responsible citizens. Our students have responded well and have participated in all the college activities with zeal and enthusiasm demonstrating leadership and initiative on more than one occasion. We wish them the very best for their future. We need to focus a little more on Academics and I am confident that the students will co-operate with us and make us happy.

I conclude by saying that we still have a long road ahead of us with many challenges but I am confident that together, we shall face these challenges with courage, renewed vigour and dedication. Thank you!

Industrial Visit to Toyota Kisloskar, Bidadi

A one day Industrial Visit for the 4thSemester B.Com & 6th Semester BBA students of the department of Commerce and Management was organized on 12th of March, 2016. The students along with Mr. Shekar, Senior Faculty left the college by 11:00 am. The objective of the trip was to have a visual study of the production and service industry. Toyota Kirloskar Auto Parts was kind enough to permit our college students to have a plant tour. 35 students participated in the visit. They reached the Company at 1:45 pm. At the plant the students were asked to assemble in the seminar hall where the HR Manager gave a brief introduction about the company. After the presentation the students were divided into two groups and were taken inside the plant visit to view the different processes.

The HR Manager explained the process in such a simplified manner that B.Com and BBA students could understand technical application of the manufacturing process very easily. This was followed by a feedback session where each student expressed his/her appreciation and views on the visit to Toyota Kirloskar. The visit ended at 5.30 p.m.
