Platinum Jubilee Year Greetings!
Swami Vivekananda’s exhortation – “Awake, arise and stop not
till your goal is reached” motivates all of us to work relentlessly.
Walchand College of Engineering is observing 75th year of its proud
existence from 23rd June 2021. To commensurate the platinum jubilee,
we plan to organize a series of programs throughout the year. Relationship
between alma mater and its alumni is a classic example of a unique circular
cause effect association resulting in mutual growth and development.
While the bond between WCE and its alumni is already strong for decades together,
just like a family, WCE Alumni network is an attempt to formalize these strong
connects so that a ubiquitous network gets formed which provides a unique platform
for the benefit of all its stake holders.
WCE plans to engage its alumni in a more systematic manner for augmenting
various facets of the institutional development like teaching-learning processes,
professional development of faculty and students, employability, labs and infrastructure,
industry interface and research. A Graduate Mentorship Program is proposed to be formally
launched now which will enable raw students to turn out as professional engineers under alumni
mentors’ guidance by the time they graduate. WCE also wishes to create several endowments
dedicated to different needs of the institute for providing scholarships and giving awards
to students to recognize their academic, extra-curricular, innovation and research achievements
and motivate them.
WCE has upgraded its infrastructure and laboratories in recent years which is an ongoing process.
Walchand Informatics Center (WIC) to integrate management of data and networking and
a modern Online Evaluation Management System are the latest additions. However
still much remains to be done to catch up with the best as per global standards
and acquire university status for WCE. A phase wise development plan will be shared
where the alumni can contribute either individually or collectively. All alumni funds
will be applied to their intended end uses and audited accounts will be displayed on the website.
On this historical occasion, we cordially invite you to join the WCE Alumni by becoming a Member
and participate in the development journey of your Alma Mater. Your suggestions are welcome.
