Institutional Distinctiveness

Institutional Distinctiveness:
Fostering Employability and Enterprising Skill
In 2022, NITI Aayog reported that 48% of engineering students were unemployed. It also stressed the necessity of higher education growth and student employment abilities. According to a 2019 National Association of Software and Service Companies (NASSCOM) survey, India graduates 1.5 million engineers, every year. Only 250,000 graduates secured jobs in any core engineering industry. NASSCOM said engineering graduates have an "employability gap" and that the education system is neglecting the development of robust foundational and professional competencies. What is truly needed is a combination of practical knowledge and industry exposure.
In addition, in the field of engineering, the importance of innovation has become increasingly significant. An individual can fallaciously believe that the engineering field exclusively entails conforming to a rational and analytical methodology, without any potential for imaginative thinking. It is important to note that a close relationship exists between engineering and innovation. Innovation is crucial to modern engineering, hence academic institutions should emphasise teaching innovation and entrepreneurship.
Following the New Education Policy and to address the aforementioned inadequacies and encourage students to think creatively, the institute prioritised industry-academia interactions, innovation and entrepreneurship promotion, and advanced infrastructure.
Any higher education institution must foster its students’ holistic development, which will drive the country's and world's progress. GLBITM, a NIRF-ranked Indian educational institute, understands and strives to satisfy this goal.
One opinion argues that the industry is having trouble finding competent employees, while another emphasises the psychological stress students undergo in their last semester while they search for jobs. To position people in relevant jobs, GLBITM emphasises a proactive, dynamic, and results-oriented approach. Over the past decade, our on-campus recruiting efforts have resulted in an 80% placement rate. We also admire our successful graduate entrepreneurs.

These initiatives which we present as 3I - Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure have made the institute a technical education powerhouse in its region and have been the differentiating factor over the years. These efforts along with their impact are presented below:
Industry Connect
Globalisation has increased industrial competitiveness. Thus, only industrial-academic partnerships can bridge this divide and educate students about the industry. GLBITM works with industries to improve talent. This collaboration has influenced not only the content that is being delivered to the students, but also how the students get exposed to the industry, and how young engineers and managers who graduate from the institute are placed in companies nationwide. An Industry-Institute Cell hosts academic-business seminars, conferences, and symposiums. It invites business leaders for expert talks on industry practices, trends, and experience. The cell signed MoUs with several firms to establish mutually beneficial partnerships and industry-sponsored internships/fellowships. The institution offers industry-expert-led placement preparation training. MoUs with SAP University, ICT Academy, Eduskills, Infosys Springboard, WNS Cares Foundation, and others provide cutting-edge technology and trend training. Train-the-Trainer programmes with Wipro, Virtusa, EPAM, and others have upskilled faculty. Many of our student teams have participated in and won competitions like KAPILA, SIH, Virtusa Jatayu Contest, TCS Codevite, HackwithInfy, Capgemini Tech challenges, Robert Bosch IoT Garage Ideathon, KPIT Sparkle, etc. Industry board members and institution management/academic heads meet regularly on the institute's Corporate Advisory Board to discuss fresher recruitment issues.
Advanced learning centres let students study industrial skills including Big data, Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Full Stack, SAP, 5G, IoT, PLC, embedded systems, CIM, Robotics, 3D Printing, Industry 4.0, Pneumatics, Modelling & Simulation, etc. The institution is building an AICTE Idea Lab and a CoE in Electric Vehicle technologies. Both facilities will help students learn disruptive technologies.
These measures have given the much-needed industry association a boost, allowing students and teachers to learn the newest industry technology and trends and develop highly qualified employees. These endeavours resulted in our graduates’ landing job profiles through campus placement campaigns.

Innovation Ecosystem
India prioritises innovation. Its national strategy "Decade of Innovations 2010-20" commits to strengthening Science, Technology, and Innovation (STI) capacity via programmes like Atal Innovation Mission and StartupIndia. GLBITM has made some modest contributions to this great mission. The Institution Innovation Council (IIC) promotes student and staff innovation, publication, and patenting. This council hosts Innovation and Entrepreneurship activities year-round. In 2019-20, 2020-21, and 2021-22, it scored the highest stars in performance. The institution scored "Excellent" band in the Atal Ranking of Institutions on Innovation Achievement (ARIIA) 2021. NIRF Innovation ranks GLBITM 151-300 in 2023. The Ministry's Mentor-Mentee program selected IIC-GLBITM to mentor 5 Mentee Institutions. ATAL Tinkering Lab partners with IIC-GLBITM. As of now, the institute has Filled/Published/Granted 234 patents. The institute has E-Cell which arranges student entrepreneurship activities. The GLBITM R&D cell helps students and faculty members to publish research papers. Over the last five years, more than 1000 articles were contributed to SCI/SCIE/SCOPUS-indexed journals and conferences. Faculty and students utilised modern labs to develop, research, and create projects. Annual open-house exhibition YUKTI showcases creative project ideas. Industry and academic experts are invited to evaluate these projects. In addition, G L Bajaj Centre for Research and Incubation (GLBCRI)-- the Incubator was also established. The campus has more than 15000 sq. ft. of operational space, including well-equipped cubicles for startups, fabrication and testing labs, a Centre of Excellence with prototyping, mentoring for IPR, marketing, business plan development, product development, and more than 36 seating spaces, conference room, meeting room, canteen, and workspace for entrepreneurs.
GLBCRI assists employees and students apply for government programmes like MSME, Atamnirbhar Bharat, UP start-ups, DST, SERB, DRDO, AICTE, etc. GLBCRI is a DCMSME StartinUP incubator and DST-Nidhi PRAYAS centre. GLBCRI is an incubator identified by UPLC, GoUP's IT&E nodal agency.

Infrastructure Base
GLBITM has 07 Auditoriums/Seminar Halls with an overall audience capacity of more than 2000, an RFID-enabled completely automated library, an Incubation Centre, a Design Innovation Centre, a Big Data Lab, a 5G simulation Lab, a Robotics Lab, and more. The institute is Wi-Fi enabled and has a 1 Gbps bandwidth connection 24/7. The infrastructure incorporates a 5 petaFLOPS NVIDIA DGX A100 AI system with unmatched computational density, performance, and adaptability.
