Experience in Education Industry

I have been associated with this industry for more than 21 years and have experienced a variety of emotions simultaneously. An educational institute is a place where students come with their dreams and ideas, and we help to put wings to their dreams. 

One can rightly say that education industry will not only nourish one's intelligence but develop one’s personality as well. As an educationist, I feel honoured and proud to be linked with this industry and contribute to shaping the future of the nation.

Being the Director of the Ellen College, I have faced many problems but nothing has ever stopped me to achieve my defined goals. An excellent administrator is the one who is not only a good listener, excellent collaborator but also a brilliant problem solver. A team leader should possess excellent communication skills in order to guide his/her colleagues in a defined way.

Suggestions to the upcoming youth

I believe, passion can fuel every pinch of creativity with great success. Students entering the design industry should possess a compassionate attitude towards their work assignments. The workload and efforts in the design industries are very demanding and at some point, may become frustrating. One can only survive if they are ardent about their course work and enjoy every challenge. My only advice, therefore, to every millennial is to stay focused on the opted career and have a well-defined vision for the same. 

Curriculum Practices at Ellen College

A good educational institution is the one where students can learn to connect education with their daily life issues and problems. Therefore, we promote learning with understanding within the context of advanced study. If we talk about design institute in particular, apart from the practical practices, it is also necessary to emphasize interdisciplinary connections and integration within the course curriculum.

Advisors Board -

At ELLEN, we believe in constantly striving to stretch our horizons. To this end, we are ably guided by our Advisory Boards.

The Board will advise the ELLEN leadership on industry trends and directions. They are expected to be innovative forums that will create new mechanisms to help students have a deeper and involved interaction with the Industry.
