SANKALP (Determined to Compete) –Orientation Program (2020)
Panipat Institute of Engineering and Technology is not just an institution but a home away from home, dedicatedly working towards building future of many and for many. Department of Computer Applications is working hard to fulfill all the dreams of students who have joined this institute for becoming graduates and post graduates in Computer Applications. Hence the Department organized six day Orientation Program, titled SANKALP, to allow the students some time to adapt themselves to their changing lives, their changing routines and changing responsibilities. The department believes in a holistic development of students of utmost importance and the pool of excellent faculty puts up all possible efforts for the same. Such events are organized every year for new students to provide them direction and guidance for their courses. They are introduced with each other and with their faculty members. They are informed about their curriculum and events to be held in campus on different occasions. The second aspect of the role of orientation programme is acclimatizing students to their new environment. After moving into a new neighborhood, one would ideally take a few days to learn one’s way around the new neighborhood. Likewise, orientation should allow students to get their bearings in their new home. For some students, going to college is their first time away from home, so orientation should give them time to become familiar with their new surroundings. New students should meet their roommates and find their classrooms. Through guided tours, campus maps, or even time to just wander, orientation provides a safe avenue for new students to find their way around campus. By moving on campus before classes start, the new students are able to learn the ropes that don’t seem so green by the time the academic year begins. Students should become familiar with both physical locations, virtual platforms and the workings of the environment during orientation.
Keeping into account the pandemic of Covid-19, this year SANKALP was organized through virtual platform on 7th September – 13th September, 2020, scheduled as follows
Day1 -7th September, 2020
