Bishop Heber College signs pact with IBM

With a view to promote research through its various departments in general and Mathematics department in particular, the Bishop Heber College has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with IBM India Private Limited.

M.Marcus Diepen Boominathan, Principal of the College and Rajan Ravindran, Senior Software Engineer, IBM India Private Limited, Bangalore, exchanged the MoU at a function held at the college on Wednesday.

Mr.Boominathan said new technology area curriculum, faculty enablement and research support are some of the important components of the pact.

Apart from the Mathematics department, other allied departments such as Computer Application and Physics department would also participate in it. Mr.Rajan Ravindran said there was a gap between the employer's expectations and students' skills.

The MoU would go a long way in bridging the gap. Training would be imparted to the faculty, who, in turn, would train the students.

S.Valarmathi, Dean of Sciences, said the research program would, among other things, focus on "power 755" - an important topic in Fluid Dynamics with wide ranging applications in various fields including structuring of air - craft; designing of car and designing and functions of turbines.

M.Rathnaker, business development manager, IBM India Private Limited, Bangalore, said this was the first time that IBM has entered an MoU with an arts and science college.

Earlier, agreements have been signed only with engineering colleges and universities.

D.Paul Dhayabaran, associate professor, department of Mathematics and G. Sobers Smiles David, assistant professor and head of the department of Computer Science were among those who spoke.
