ACCE(I) Student Chapter

ACCE (I) is admitting Undergraduate Student members into its fold since 2011. As a part of its continuous endeavor to bridge the gap between the academia and the industry, ACCE (I) has evolved, several well-structured proactive programs to upgrade the skills of Civil engineering Undergraduate Student and in reciprocation, has received overwhelming response from the academia.

Starting June 2015, ACCE (I) has added a new dimension to this movement, by announcing opening of Student Chapters in those institutions who are Lifetime Organization Members of ACCE (I). This shall entail a new relation between Undergraduate Student and the Association, in terms of skill development in the ambience in which, Students are comfortable. Each Student chapter will have a mentor from ACCE (I) who will guide and monitor the events of such chapters.

For the Undergraduate Student, who encounters difficulty with class work, ACCE- Student Chapter may become inspirational and help in encouraging a different approach. Further, coming in contact with professionals in an out-of-classroom setting can improve their outlook towards their profession.

While initiating this new movement at ACCE (I), we realize our responsibility as nation builders and the role that a future civil engineer has to play keeping sustainability at the core of his progress. Professional Development Group at ACCE(I) is always available to assist in any matters concerning the operation of ACCE (I) Student Chapters.

Student Mentoring Program (SMP)

SMP – Student Mentoring Program of ACCE (I) is a well-structured Skill development training program aimed at increasing the employ-ability quotient of students who undertake this program.
The program is designed with 32 modules of four hours each and is based on the present curriculum at engineering colleges for 2nd, 3rd and 4th year civil engineering graduates. SMP is actually a brainchild of ACCE-Coimbatore Centre, has now acquired a status of national importance. The program got its initial impetus when the General body approved its implementation at national level at the AGM held at Dharwad in June, 2015, while installing its newly elected team for the term 2015-17.

As a result of this approval, a new committee called SMP Committee was constituted under the leadership of Past President Er. Pichaiyya and placed in position the required modalities. Several meetings with most stakeholders were held before finalizing the SMP Toolkit, which describes administrative procedures for successful implementation.

SMP Objectives: 

Mentoring has and is receiving much attention within the education arena. Fundamental objectives of the Student Mentoring Program are:

  • To improve the Self Esteem of graduate engineers
  • To provide the Graduate engineers an Insight into the Construction industry
  • To make the students understand the Responsibilities, critical & vital role to be played by them
  • To make them aware of their roles and responsibilities at various levels on and off site
  • Understand the challenges & Opportunities
  • To build a strong and rewarding career
  • Improve their employ-ability quotient
  • Impart field knowledge, assess and Certify
  • Think in line with the requirements of Sustainable society
  • Improve subject assimilation
  • Bring students in contact with industry experts
  • Improve Industry-Academia Relation

Plan of Action:

ACCE (I) is striving hard in bringing the awareness among engineering colleges and take part in the university syllabus committees. Exposure to actual site conditions to be considered as an important constituent of SMP. To promote SMP as a national program, every center should evolve their own strategies keeping the guidelines provided in the SMP Toolkit in mind.

This is one program which can bring the local governments to work together with ACCE (I) and hence all possible avenues be explored.
