The Career Development and Guidance Centre of Punjab Engineering College (Deemed to be University) Chandigarh, organised its two days event of knowledge: UDAAN- A Higher Education Initiative 2024 on 16th – 17th February, 2024. “UDAAN” which symbolizes “flight”, a step towards guiding students to pursue higher education like MBA, MTech, and MS with informative and valuable sessions, peer connect, and a network to reach out to when in doubt. The occasion was graced by the presence of Guest of Honour -Mr. Rickshesh M. (Founder, Stealth Mode), Dr Ankit Yadav (Coordinator, CDGC), Dr. Jaskirat Kaur (Coordinator, CDGC), Dean Students Affairs Dr. D. R. Prajapati, and Heads of all the departments.

The Inaugural ceremony commenced with Saraswati Vandana and lighting of the lamp. Thereafter, Dr. Ankit Yadav (Coordinator, CDGC), briefed about the conference and welcomed all the participants present in the event.

Every year, UDAAN is held as an initiative in assisting students in their pursuit of higher education. It consists of a series of expert lectures and discussions with the most competent people in the fields of education, research, and innovation. The purpose of the sessions is to give students information about several professional paths that they can take after graduation.

A plethora of sessions were organised in the event under one giant umbrella. These sessions were delivered by very successful alumni of PEC and global leaders who have had first-hand experience of the technical world.

Day one of the event started with an inspiring session by Mr. Rickshesh M. (Founder, Stealth Mode) on “Elite MBA Excellence : A Strategic Exploration of Top-tier Examinations in India;”. Some of the other sessions included – “Unleashing GMAT Excellence: Proven Strategies for Triumph” by Mr. Anshuman Bhardwaj (Premier GMAT/GRE Tutor with experience of 8 years), “Cracking the GRE: A Comprehensive Session to Excel in Graduate Education” by Ms. Monila Rawat (Pearson Certified trainer), and “GATE Odyssey: Navigating the Path to Engineering Brilliance” Mr. Chandan Jha (HoD Unacademy, Ex- ISRO Scientist),

The second day of UDAAN started with an alumnus of PEC, Dr. Neeraj Sanan (Doctor of Business Administration, The University of Manchester, CEO-Intelligent Insights) as its first speaker. He presented his views on “Higher Education and Career Opportunities in various domains after graduation”. Next up, Mr. Sukrit Gupta (Assistant Prof. IIT Ropar, PhD-Computer Science from NTU Singapore, Research Fellow- Hasso Plattner Institute Berlin) talked about the “Unlocking Horizons: Academic Opportunities Beyond Graduation”. Followed by, there was an informative session by Mr. GDS Soni (Experience of 14 years in Career Building) who further talked about “Scholarship Symphony: Unlocking Opportunities for Higher Education Post-BTech”.

The expert talks were followed by a question-answer session and interaction with the experts. The students found the sessions highly interactive, informative and encouraging. The event concluded with a vote of thanks proposed by Dr. Jaskirat Kaur (Coordinator, CDGC).

In conclusion, UDAAN combines a variety of knowledgeable and interactive sessions in different domains to provide the students necessary guidance and pathway to their career development – the name CDGC stands for.
