     Wipro executive addresses students

Chandigarh, August 4th 2006, Tribune News Service

The Punjab Engineering College Old Students’ Association (PECOSA) organised the first of the lecture series at Punjab Engineering College today. The speaker, Mr Sanjay Gupta, was introduced to the students by Mr Dharinder Tayal, vice- president, PECOSA. A senior vice-president of Wipro, US, Mr Gupta is an alumnus of the college and a gold medallist from the IIM, Ahmedabad. He spoke to the final-year students on “The educated Indian as a global professional”. He said the US had the largest population of Indian engineers.

The export-oriented IT and ITES industry in India employed more than 15 lakh professionals. In the current year alone, this industry was expected to add four lakh professionals to its employee base.

Over five lakh Indian students were enrolled in engineering courses last year. This was more than in any other country in the world. In fact, while the enrolment of students in engineering courses was declining in countries like the USA, it continued to grow in India. Hence, increasingly India was becoming a source of engineering talent across the globe.

He advised students to invest time on research about the country or people they were going to work with, inculcate the habit of being thorough in work and sharpen their communication skills, especially listening skills. A vote of thanks was proposed by Mr Vikram Hans, president, PECOSA, who said more such lectures would be held. The Director, Punjab Engineering College, Dr Vijay Gupta, presented a memento to the guest speaker.
