College Committees

Trident Academy of Professional Studies has institutionalized a very transparent process to track student’s progress and monitor the overall development of the institution at large. 13 Committees have been formed headed by the Professor-in charge. The list of the committees with a link to the members are provided below-

Committee-300x254

The basic function of this committee is to introduce and monitor progressive education and practices, designed to enliven teaching and learning. The committee focuses on implementing a student centered education. It helps teachers to encourage student participation, through discussions and group projects. It aims at making the learning process interesting and enjoyable, by innovating and implementing progressive practices in the college. Trident already follows the system of special care classes/tutorial classes. The subject teachers pursue comparatively weak students to attend these special care classes for their academic improvement. On request from a group of students and/or their teacher guardian, such special care classes will be intensified from this session onwards.

It has been felt that young boys and girls, who enter their graduate studies as freshers, mostly suffer from apprehensions and are shy of interaction with teachers or administrative staff of the college due to a peculiar sense of prestige consciousness and fear of loss of esteem. These young children, who are mostly away from home, definitely deserve reassurance and a bit of indulgence and pampering in the college. Therefore, in each Trident institution, the system of teacher-guardian has been introduced from the session 2006-07. For every 15 students of the institution, a teacher guardian is notified and each member of this small group will have a right to discuss his/her problems relating to studies, hostels, health and even other personal affairs. He/she will endeavour to solve all the problems of all the students under his/her care and will interact with college administration on one hand and with the parents on the other hand. Theses individual proctor teachers are directly monitored by the committee.

  3. Around September 2014, infront of the general office of the engineering college, a “Touch-Screen-Kiosk” is being planned which will help visitors for self-help towards useful information on the college and its students.
