With the belief that engineering institutions should give prime importance to make its students ‘industry-ready’ and ‘employable’, Bearys Institute of Technology (BIT) is focussed on keeping its courses job-oriented with research tightly woven into the curriculum. Syed Mohammed Beary, Chairman and Managing Trustee of Beary’s Academy of Learning, in conversation with ENN
Bridging the gap between industry and academia is vital in today’s world. The gaps between the educational qualifications of young graduates and their employability quotient has been a cause of concern not just for job aspirants but also for the ruling government. The issue also found mention in the budget speech of the newly appointed Finance minister.
While the government may have woken up to this challenge today, the issue has been a matter of discussion for quite some time now and the founders of Mangalore-based Bearys Institute of Technology (BIT) seem to have gauged this scenario before hand. Founded by the Bearys Group under the aegis of Bearys Academy of Learning, BIT is an institution with a difference. The institute believes that their location and strong environmental orientation are as much part of the learning experience as the courses and academic programmes on offer.
“Our courses are market appropriate and job oriented with research given high priority and tightly woven into the curriculum,” Syed Mohammed Beary, Chairman and Managing Trustee of Beary’s Academy of Learning tells ENN. “Leveraging the extensive Bearys business network and that of our faculty, we give our students a local-global perspective as well as exposure to industry-academia interaction that eventually leads to lucrative and well-matched job prospects on graduation,” he adds. There is a well-qualified faculty from across India and abroad, top–of–the–line facilities and a talented student body that is growing in numbers with every passing year. To make learning accessible, BIT also offers superior residential facilities for men and women equipped with all amenities for student comfort. Recreation and sport areas are provided to enhance student interaction outside the classrooms and increase physical fitness.
“Taking forward the legacy of our late father who was a dedicated teacher, we have been establishing several educational institutions from the primary to collegiate level since 1906. Set up under the aegis of charitable trusts, these institutions impart quality education especially to students from the underprivileged strata of society. Montessories have become an integral part of all our projects. We also spearhead a number of socially relevant projects as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives”
BIT is a young and dynamically evolving institution. It does not have a history but it is future ready. Energised by the contemporary education needs of demanding young people, BIT is a progressive college that moulds successful professionals and committed leaders for the 21st century.
“Delivering excellence consistently sums up the spirit of the Bearys Group,” says Syed. From the very beginning, the group has identified entrepreneurship, environment and education as three key focus areas to which the group commits a relentless pursuit of quality. “We support all our initiatives in these areas with specialist engineering and management teams who bring to our projects experience, expertise and varied skills,” adds Syed. Moreover, an eminent global network of technocrats, educators, engineers, architects, consultants and service providers who add significant value to each one of Bearys endeavours is an added advantage.
