              As we know for studying abroad and adapting to its conditions, language poses a vital role as means of communication. Knowing a foreign language is efficient enough for sustaining abroad & for hulking the resume. Considering this a session on“Introduction to German language” was conducted by Prof. S.S. Metan to all the SAC members.

               There are various kinds of alumnus procedures for selecting a student for pursuing MS by the foreign universities, for which the resume must be sound, impressive and cover all the areas regarding the subject opted by the student for masters. International journal paper publication & international conference paper presentation play a vital role to raise the level of the resume as well as the scholar, accelerating his chancesfor masters. Keeping this in mind a session on “How to write & present an International Journal paper” was conducted by Prof. S.S. Metan.

               Mr. Siddharth Kothiwale pursued his MS from German Engineering University RWTH Aachen and currently he is working in P+Z Gmbh as an Aerodynamic engineer conducted an intellectual session In the month of January, on “Life after MS in Germany”. He motivated the students to be successful, sincere along with how to work & behave goal oriented. He also gave a good exposure to the students about the procedures & opportunities for getting a job in Germany.

              Later in 2015, Prof. S.S. Metan & SAC co-ordinator Prof. Rahul R Bhandari took the initiative to take the students to one of the world’s largest industrial and technological trade fair “Hannover messe 2015”. They initially conducted a session with Mrs. Rajvi Halgekar from De Aventura Ltd, for all the students and informed them about the different aspects and benefits of such kind of foreign exposure during their undergraduate level. The response was amazing, in which nine students agreed to visit this Messe. Later another session for the parents was conducted by Prof. S.S Metan, to give them exact idea and overview about the visit. This session proved to be an eye opener for them as well.
