There are various comments on this website from current and former students
of NIE, especially about the E&C Department, some of the comments do not reflect
the department in good light.
In the interest of preserving free speech on the Internet, these comments have
not been deleted from the site, but to stay within the decency inherent in
Indian culture, we have moderated the postings and replaced the swears with
other masked words.
Lately we have received communication from some faculty with their side of
the story and we think it is valid and valued to present that point of view.
It seems like over the past 4 years since Mr Bhojkumar took over the reins at
the E&C department, things seem to have become better (at least that is the
faculty view). The departments earlier practices seem to have ceased. (There was
neither admission or denial about the past practices)
NIE is not as bad as portrayed in the postings on the site - in fact it is
probably just as bad as any other college in India. The reason, we have such
comments is the fact that this website is not college controlled and censored.
Other college websites are controlled and censored and do not really reflect the
democratic nature of the country to which they belong.
It is a good thing that we have a website that allows people to express their
views and maybe as a result of that expression, things have changed in NIE !
The power of the pen (now Internet) has always been talked about, now - maybe it
did make a difference.
NIE has an official site www.nie.ac.in and
they also have an email address for the Alumni association -
firstname.lastname@example.org. The NIE Alumni seems to be
very active based on the following information -
"4 months back, the Alumni Association met at Chinnaswamy Stadium in
Bangalore. This meet was well attended with over 400 Alumni starting from 1950
batch to 2001 batch. The association is quite active now."
So go ahead write to the alumni (cc
email@example.com) , so that we can let the others know !
