You would be glad to know that PECOSA J&K Chapter and PECOSA NCR Chapter were launched on 2 Sep and 9 Sep 2018 respectively. I believe that the formation of these chapters would go a long way in building bridges across Alumni. Efforts are also being made to establish PECOSA Chapters in other important cities as well as overseas. I appeal to our alumni residing in Pune , Bengaluru , Mumbai and Jaipur to organise themselves to form PECOSA Chapters in their regions so as to enhance their participation in the activities of PEC and PECOSA. As all of you know, our alumni have made their presence felt in various parts of the world . They played a great role in the development of Northern states of the country in particular and the nation as a whole in general. As on today our alumni are occupying prestigious positions in Civil Sevices, armed forces, railways, various engineering departments of Central and State Governments, corporate sector and PSUs. Some of them are leading entrepreneurs of the nation. Many of us who went overseas achieved unparalleled success by dint of their bold vision and hard work. I appeal to my fellow alumni all over the world to come forward to strengthen the interface between the institute and alumni by way of helping the institute improve R& D facilities in the institute and by providing internship and employment opportunities to the PEC students. It has been rightly said that nobody bothers about an institution more than its alumni. The 1968 batch has created a huge corpus fund with PECOSA for awarding eight scholarships of fifty thousand rupees every year to the PEC students. Thanks to generous contributions by the alumni, scholarships money has increased from 1.7 lakhs two years ago to around 8.5 lakhs per annum.
We are in the process of creating a modern website with advanced features which should be ready by the end of this year. We are also trying our best to update and validate Alumni date and request the alumni to fill their data on the Google Form PECOSA Connect posted in various WhatsApp and Facebook Groups.
I hope that all of you must have by now come across the Registration Notice for the next Global PEC Alumni Meet Scheduled to be held on 16 Feb 2019 in the PEC Campus. The pass out batches of the years 1959, 1969,1984, 1994 and 2004 would be honoured. This is a great opportunity to participate in the Alumni Meet and relive the college days. It would be our endeavour to make the Alumni Meet joyful . I request all of you to make the Global Alumni Meet eventful by participating in the meet in strength.
Thanks and regards,
