We are celebrating the 152nd birthday of our beloved Ba’athist Gandhi this year. As a nation, we need to think about what we should do with our life as a symbol of gratitude. Throughout his life, Baup has stopped learning and destroying illiteracy. This text, given by force and force, is a small sign of gratitude to the Father of the Nation. He fits in well with Thomas Ma Jotigramai in Mantrara.
After poverty, power is considered to be the biggest challenge for our country. We are a starving people. We still depend on oil-rich countries to meet our energy needs. The main part of our import bill is still importing oil and gas, which leads to a negative balance of payment conditions. Our energy sector is in revolution. At this critical juncture, the latest National Education Policy (NEP) is an effort to liberate and make education more flexible. Assuming a corporate university in the energy sector, similar to NEP, seems very reasonable.
BAPU – Approach to Learning
When we go to corporate university literature, many universities hold our imagination. ENGIE (formerly GIF Suis) University has a name in the Enterprise Learning and Improvement Process (CLIP). When we think of quality or six Sigma, we think of the University of Motorola. Many other universities in the United States and ISB in India are supported by the Industrial Group. In India, MDI was originally funded by IFCI and today MDI is its own name. Industries or a combination of industries are valued in the creation of universities / institutions of excellence and are the same as resource creation companies.
Later, corporate universities and institutions in India flooded. Gindall University, Ansale University are getting off to a good start and making a name for themselves. RBI and some banks have created NIBM, Pune. IMI and Ford School of Management, New Delhi are good B-schools with industry support. TERI was first floated by TATA and today it is an independent and independent entity of TERI University in international fame. Many years later, Pallani was a brilliant educator in Berlusconi. The common denominator is that they are all industrially created and supported, self-profit, and a center of excellence.
Function cut for BAPU
BAPU recognizes that it will create certified, industry-ready energy and energy professionals who are ready to start work immediately. Provides major courses in energy and energy. Courses are short and long. The university is thought to be for the masses. Therefore, with the exception of regular and on-campus courses, the University of the USSP will begin courses on paper to reach out to the general public. Executive education will be the main part of the university where knowledge transfer takes place.
Education and research go hand in hand. As mentioned earlier, this university participates in action research and disseminates knowledge. Conducts future studies and understands policy guidelines. The Active Industry-Academy interface fills the knowledge gap between academia and industry. It is said that there is a knowledge gap in every movement. An executive who has been in the business for many years must renew himself in a new or better way. Similarly, scholars in the field of knowledge must be connected to ground-level realities in order for each research industry to be relevant.
To further research the industry, the university can obtain funding from the Corporate Fund to float chairs and create a corpse to support the chairman. By rationalizing the idea, a corporation can create a center of excellence (part of a corporate chairman) in a specific area to conduct extensive research and consulting to meet current and future challenges. The Center of Excellence may remain independent within 5 years of receiving the seed money. For example, we may have Center for Excellence (COE) in Project Management, This is because project delays are a major concern and each delay is outdated and costly. We often double the cost. Such a center can be a great help in speeding up project implementation and every company in the project business needs financial support for such a center.
Similarly, a Renewal Center of Excellence (COE) It’s not just the most up-to-date and most influential. The Indian government has unveiled a roadmap to achieve 175 GW of renewable energy by 2022, which includes 100 GW of solar power and 60 GW of wind power.. A.D. In 2015, according to the IEA, Renewable – Solar, Wind and Hydro – generated 153 GW worldwide, more than the traditional fossil fuel generation generation. This year, IEA’s total renewable capacity will increase by 60% to 4000 GHz by 2024, double the capacity of today’s coal. In addition to giving more attention to this aspect of the sunrise, the COE Constitution will contribute significantly to its growth locally and internationally.
BAPU is expected to participate in international cooperation and international funding. As part of an international coalition, the university is able to collaborate not only on international recognition but also on key areas and priorities. For example, from the APR. , In collaboration with the United States, to conduct extensive research and work on shale gas technology. It can cooperate with New Zealand universities in geothermal initiation. Can collaborate with universities in Canada, Brazil and Argentina in the hydro field. Singapore is a good case study for power distribution and Nyanga Technical University (NTU) has a center of excellence in energy, which receives international funding and cooperation is important. These are illustrative examples. For research, the sky is the limit. It all depends on how many flights there are.
Skills development is one area we focus on as a country, but we want the same to be very active in the energy and energy sectors. We can take the issue of the energy sector. According to the 13th Five-Year Plan, India aims to increase its total capacity by 100 GW by 2022. As the solar industry grows, the demand for technically skilled manpower (both trainer and operator) is thought to be very high, although there is currently no clear estimate. The latest CEA report confirms this. With so many employees retiring, the need to fill vacancies becomes more urgent. Someone made it a “retirement decade.” This has happened to many companies in India. If we are not ready now, the country will soon face a serious crisis of well-trained manpower.
In each of the energy and energy sectors, we have training facilities that are attractive to their organization and often train their own executives. Management institutions have few floating programs (long and short term) in this sector and cannot take full responsibility for future needs. They are also expensive. Although there are few institutions, faculty – technical and administrative – are not readily available in the market. We must prioritize manpower.
In this context, The role of the university as a BAPU should be cited as a vehicle for talent development. As mentioned earlier, universities are for international education. They are an all-encompassing tower. We can imagine the need for a technician, a plumber, a wiler or any other technical hand for the energy and energy sector, who needs a certificate to get a job. Imagine for a second you were transposed into the karmic driven world of Earl. But there is no money for formal education. BAPU contributes a lot to floating mass certified letter classes and requires students to take a “hands-on” class through workshops in locally certified ITIs.
In short, we discussed exactly what BAPU can do. It will help the country move forward on many challenges and stay on the path to greater development. BAPU develops long-term and short-term solutions to energy and energy sector problems. Participates in teaching (running courses), research, consulting and capacity building across the country. It will focus on renewable and renewable energy sources such as tile, geothermal and shale gas. The thinking section is taken by BAPU. There are many, at least 50, small and large institutions engaged in education and research in the field of energy and energy. They are affiliated with BAPU and can be a center of excellence. All of these institutions can work under the same umbrella. Now, we do not know who is doing what.
Enterprise CSR and BAPU
The father of the nation loved corporate houses so much that he was the engine of change for social development. Now that every for-profit enterprise has been ordered to spend 2% of its profits on CSR, the dream may come true. As it is the most important sector of the economy, it is very easy and truly free for the corporation to fund a BAPU at the expense of CSAR. The best gift we can think of for a birthday is BAPU. The benefits of BAPU to the Indian economy in general and the energy sector in particular are enormous and can certainly contribute to our government’s vision and “power for all” strategy.
