The Centre of Management and Humanities, PEC University of Technology, Chandigarh, organized an interactive session on Communication Skills on 21st March 2017 for the students of engineering during the Industry Academia Expert Lecture Week. An expert of English, Prof. Pushpinder Syal, Former Chairperson of the Department of English and Cultural Studies, Panjab University, Chandigarh, delivered the lecture interspersed with questions from the students. The session focused on the basics of communication. During the talk, Prof. Syal stressed on the fact that communication is both an art and a science. She emphasized on self-communication and thinking within and for oneself, referring to it as an essential skill. According to Professor Syal, “If we are happy doing something interesting, we can cope with adverse happenings due to the extra positive energy produced.” She clarified how one could take away the suffix “-ish from “selfish” and become self–aware in order to relate to the rest of the humanity. Evaluating oneself using the SWOT analysis technique helps structure better communication skills. The workshop recorded a participation of over 150 students belonging to B.E. 1st year Civil and Mechanical Engineering and ended with the Head, CMH, Dr. Sharda Kaushik, offering a memento to the speaker.
