BJB Autonomous College Receives MCAPS Matching Grant For Construction of E-learning Centre
The BJB Autonomous college, Bhubaneswar has received a matching grant of RS 4.30 lakh from Mo College Abhijan for the construction of an E-learning Centre in the college.
The Mo College Abhijan, a flagship initiative of the Govt of Odisha under the vision of Hon’ble Chief Minister Shri Naveen Patnaik, has been functioning as a facilitator for the overall development of Universities and Colleges in the state.
Earlier the Alumni association of BJB college had contributed a Rs 2.15 lakh for the construction works at the college. With the Mo College Abhijan matching grant, a total of Rs 6.45 lakh has been raised for the project work.
The project includes carpentry works, procurement of chairs, construction of false ceiling, electrical works and installation of CCTV cameras, paint work, procurement of air conditioner, computer systems and peripherals with networking.
Principal of the college, Dr. Niranjan Mishra said there was a pressing need for the E-learning centre at the college as students these days prefer to learn online and gather more information on research and thesis papers using the internet.
Alumnus Shri Debashis Patnaik, who has contributed an undisclosed but handsome amount for the project, along with other members of the Alumni association, said E-learning is a highly eco-friendly way of learning as it does not involve use of papers, thereby saving trees.
Established in the year 1957, the BJB Autonomous College is well-known for its teaching patterns and result–oriented programmes. The E-learning centre is poised to facilitate students and add one more feather to the glorious hat of the institution.
