Catch the next wave .
The million dollar question is – Are we geared up to adopt the next wave of technology ?
The Training and Placement cell of BIT Sindri, that has so far coined numerous cognitive initiatives with an aim to promote healthy interaction between various engineering departments and industries organized a 3 day long workshop from Indovision services under Ericsson Campus partner program from 11 th to 13 th January .
Ably organised by the TAP Cell under the aegis of the honorable director Dr. D.K. Singh and Prof. In-Charge of TAP Cell – Dr. Ghanshyam Rai , the program was conducted by Mr. Subramanyeshwar Manthan, professional Telecom trainer.

Quoting one of the students, “The manner in which he connected all the new emerging things with physical world and his explanation in such glib way was much easier to understand.”
All the successful candidates will receive certification from Ericsson after the announcement of qualification of the concluding test.
This will unquestionably have great bearing on the Engineering Curriculum, exposure of industrial atmosphere to engineering students and subsequent placement of young graduating engineers in industries all across the country.
In his words ,It’s just fine. You may not get all answers from your professor, books. But never stop thinking. Never give up on your thoughts. Keep questioning .
A moonshot thinking is required to do anything big and catch up with the changing times and technologies. Start with basics and try to excel.
