Established with a vision to bring about innovation in higher education and learning in emerging areas of the knowledge society, the not-for-profit NIIT University (NU) unveiled another unique initiative - The Asian Lens Forum. The Forum is an attempt to sensitize the coming Asian generations on the rich and diverse legacies of Asia with an aim to create a sense of identity, direction and vision as a beacon for the “Asian 21st Century”.
The conversations at the event were anchored by NU Visiting Professor, Dr Jean-Pierre Lehmann, Emeritus Professor of IMD Lausanne, and an exceptional Asianist who has invested a majority of his scholarly pursuits in understanding Asia and globalization, and has written extensively on these subjects.
Speaking on this significant launch, Rajendra Pawar, Founder, NIIT University said, “The rich and diverse cultural heritage of Asia and India is probably second to none. However owing to centuries of dominance by western culture and economy we seem to have forgotten our legacy. Asian Lens is an attempt to enable today's youth to appreciate and understand their legacy and draw inspiration from it.”
A competition for all NIIT University students was organized as part of the Educational Technology Innovation Series, in which students had to use E-waste/Technology waste and use their creativity to make an innovative product at minimum cost.
A few inspired students of B. Tech. participated in the event and demonstrated their zeal and creative instinct in building innovative models using discarded and obsolete e-waste.
