Best Practices

Best Practice - 1: Environment and Social Consciousness
Objectives of the Practice:
GL Bajaj Institute of Technology and Management promotes environmental awareness via several methods. As an institution, we lead the way in rethinking environmental culture and developing sustainable solutions. Going green requires a lifetime of learning about sustainable living.
• Encouraging the institute to redesign its environmental culture, improve human well-being, and balance ecosystems
• Minimising campus activities' environmental and health impacts.
• Reducing solid waste and keeping cleanliness
• Promoting waste segregation, transportation, processing, and disposal.

The Context
Water use, supplies, appliances, waste, etc. must be handled to make the GLBITM campus eco-friendly. Alternative energy sources and campus energy reduction would be costly. Waste disposal slowed implementation. Many students were challenged by socialization and environmentalism. Students, instructors, and administration must use stationary productively. Green campus activities increase the utilisation of resources and the minimisation of waste.

The Practices
The Institute has implemented several environment-friendly and green campus initiatives. GLBITM reduces trash and recycles it to save natural resources and reduce its environmental effect. The Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority and other licenced garbage disposers separate and dispose of the institute's solid, liquid, and electronic waste. An NGO helps the facility dispose of rubbish. Garbage cans are placed at student hangouts on campus. The majority of the employees and students use public transport. Students and staff grow diverse seedlings to balance the environment.
• Alternative Energy: Fossil fuels pollute and degrade ecosystems. Global warming caused greenhouse effects. The institute installed 286 kW rooftop grid-synchronized solar power plants to cut carbon emissions. Teachers and students have patented solar energy ideas. Institute uses geothermal energy for ambient conditioning. Having a Cow shelter on campus, the institute uses cow dung for Bio-gas and manure.
• Lowering energy consumption: The institute has been replacing metal halide lights with energy-efficient LED bulbs in on-campus buildings for the past few years. Staff rooms have off-use appliances and air conditioners. Well-ventilated, illuminated classrooms conserve electricity.
• Biodiversity: GLBITM believes learning is greatest in a clean, green, pollution-free environment. Thus, we created a green atmosphere for our children's brains, hearts, and souls. Campus and off-campus trees number over 50 varieties. Planting saplings beautifies the campus. The lawns are well-kept.
• Rainwater Harvesting: Green space helps restore underground water stores. The institute only uses non-potable water for gardening and horticulture. Asian Paints supported the campus rainwater collection initiative. Teachers and students have patented water conservation projects.
• Modified Bituminous Pavement: Students laid down a modified bituminous pavement on campus for their project.
• Waste Management: The students created a Wet Waste Composter as a project and patented it.
• Paperless Office: SIM, Email, WhatsApp, website, and other social media are used for official communication, striving towards a paperless office. Single-sided paper is used for internal documentation.
• Programs on Societal issues: GLB Rotaract Club and NSS wings organise blood donation camps, health camps and other social activities. Programs on Mental health and NEP 2020 were also conducted. Holi and Diwali are celebrated in an eco-friendly manner.

Evidence of success:
Emails, WhatsApp, and other social media tools replace paper every year. Water, energy, and waste management awareness programmes/seminars educate students and employees. Solar panels are put on to use as alternative energy. These actions earned the Uttar Pradesh Government's 2017 Cleanest Campus Award. GLBITM also won the 2017 National Media Club UP 1st Swachhata Award.

Problems encountered:
Alternative energy generated is very much limited against the requirement. Paperless administration is difficult since all files also to be maintained physically.


Best Practice - 2: Campus to Corporate
Objectives of the Practice:
The institute’s vision is to develop competent professionals catering to the needs of the Industry and Corporate world with a global perspective. This requires -
• Exposure to new tools and technology according to market
• Effective interaction with industry for better employability
• Enabling their placement in industries of their choice through campus placement drives

The goal is to satisfy the majority of students who enrol in professional programmes to acquire a decent job after graduation.

The Context
The function of industries in employment creation and economic growth is crucial. It is the primary sector of the Indian economy that generates enormous employment opportunities for educated and semi-skilled workers. Due to the swift evolution of technology, industry and academia must collaborate to bridge the disparity between them. Furthermore, the internet and digital media have raised students' awareness of the progress and variety of alternatives available. Therefore, keeping pace with the ever-evolving job market along the traditional curricula is what the institute's industry-academia collaboration/interface is intended to address.

The Practices
The following practices promote student employability and lessen the industry-academia gap:
• Execution of MoUs for training and establishment of advanced labs
• Interaction with Industry Experts on strategic roles
    • NHRD-campus HR Conclave, HR Meets, etc.
    • Institute’s Corporate Advisory Board Meetings

• Conduction of Industry oriented Training
    • Technology training on Big Data, AIML, Full Stack, SAP, IoT, PLC, embedded systems, CIM, robotics, 3D printing, Industry 4.0, etc.
    • Personality development and soft skills, aptitude classes, group discussions, simulated interviews, etc.
    • Train the Trainer programs are being offered by many companies.
    • Talk by Industry experts.

• Participation in Competitions
    • TCS Codevite, HackwithInfy, Capgemini Tech Challenges, Robert Bosch IOT Garage Ideathon, KPIT Sparkle, Virtusa Jatayu.
    • Quality Circle Forum of India (QCFI) theme-based competition

• Industry visits
• Project-based learning
    • SAE Baha, YUKTI, Openhouse, Techfest, etc.

Evidence of success:
• MoUs with Robert Bosch, Virtusa, Capgemini, Birlasoft, NEC Technologies, and KPIT Technologies.
    • Preferential hiring and activities of mutual benefit

• Rise in placement percentage.
• Higher average and maximum salaries.
• More recruiters visit every year.
• Establishment of Learning Centres
    • NVIDIA AI Lab, IOS, Big Data, SAP, CIM (MTAB), Robotics (Siemens), Design Innovation Center, 5G, VLSI Design

• Bagged prizes in various industry competitions/hackathons.
    • Winners- SIH- 2018, 2020, 2022
    • 1st Prize - Virtusa (Jatayu)- 2021
    • Runner-up - Capgemini Coding Challenge 2017

Problems encountered:
Balancing time to be devoted to academics and industrial skills is difficult for students. Engaging the industry needs persistence and competitiveness. Many businesses are adopting open recruiting, making competitiveness stiffer. Pandemic-related issues lasting 2–3 years.
