Mumbai Chapter

Mumbai on 4th May 2019


The much awaited alumni meet was scheduled on 4th May 2019 6 pm onwards in Mumbai at the banquet hall of Hotel Karl Residency in Andheri West.  This banquet hall was location because of its central location. The meet was attended by 70 plus alumni along with their spouses and children.  Total attendance was 100+. For the first time we had people from very senior batches coming in for the meet. The attendance was taken and the alumni were asked to update their coordinates in a desired format for record purpose. The alumni briefing was done by Dr Gagan Katiyar. The following were shared:

  • Annual activity report of the Alumni cell.
  • GAAB (Global Alumni Association of Bimtech) and its membership details were shared. The purpose of the body was also shared. This body operates independently of Bimtech, Greater Noida.
  • Alumni portal benefits were also shared. Students were asked to update their individual profiles/ job change/ job posting etc. on the Alumni portal. The benefits of networking were also shared.
  • One CSR activity to be undertaken by the Mumbai chapter alumni body.

The senior alumni shared their fond memories of their stay in Bimtech’s Pushp Vihar campus. They also shared their thoughts to make the alumni meets more productive and vibrant. The ideas also came from many alumni how to engage more with the college and the students. Prof Manoj Pant also share the idea of the senior alumni taking leads:

  • For mentoring the college students and helping out in summer internships and placements.
  • Inviting them for the guest lecture in the college, viva, Academic advisory, being judge in programs like Lyceum etc.

We conducted 5-6 lucky draws and awarded the various winners with goodies. We also awarded the alumni who were helpful in running the chapter with their effort.

After that we had formed small groups of Alumni with senior and junior alumni on the same round table. This ensured good networking and engagement with each other. Alumni also gave suggestions as to how to improve the engagement of the Alumni chapters. Lots of photographs and selfies were taken by the Alumni.

 This was followed by snacks, beverages and dinner. The discussion amongst the alumni was still happening much after the dinner ended.
