It is not every day that one gets to see MIT students debating on technical issues. Today was one such day when the final rounds of Tech Debate organized by ISTE took place in NLH 305, on 10th March 6pm onwards.

Four participants had qualified for the 2nd round. A one on one debate was held between two participants at a time on the topic ‘Cloud Computing should be privatised’. The judges also put up questions to the participants checking their technical knowledge and presence of mind. One of the participants Dhruv Srivastava of first year said ‘It is a really nice initiative taken by ISTE where you have to speak technically and not any random stuff’. A volunteer of ISTE, Pooja also seconded the opinion saying that a good technical knowledge is needed by participants to make a stand in the competition.

Two participants had a debate in the finals on the topic ‘Invasion of Technology in private space’.

The first position was bagged by Arjun Jamil and the runner up was Anurakti. The winner got a cash prize of Rs 3000.

ISTE Tech Debate

IMG_6978The preliminary leg of the ISTE Tech Debate, held at AB5, received an excellent response from the students. Participants were divided into groups and allotted different rooms where a group discussion was held on the topic ‘E-books or Paper books – which is better’.  Contestants had to prove their mettle by expressing their personal views and later switching sides and contradicting them.  It would be fair to say that a classic question, highly relevant to today’s world, went unanswered at the end of the day, as the participants wIMG_7008eighed out the pros and cons of the eBook revolution to perfection.  Portability, health issues, interface, environmental concerns, battery issues, financial constraints and convenience were among the important aspects discussed. The event tested the participants’ ability to put forth their views tactfully in a group, with relevant technical testimony. The final round will be held on 10thMarch. The concept of switching over completely to eBooks seems like a fairytale to some of us, but weren’t mobiles phones an alien concept to most of our grandparents too?

There are plenty of people around who seem to have learnt PHP, but few are those who have actually used what they’ve learnt. This workshop aims to change this trend and get people to start working with PHP, MySQL and start running their own database intensive websites on the server space given to them. This workshop not only gives students an opportunity to work on a live project and learn good coding practices like making reusable and modularized code, but also lets them earn a bit through some quick tips and tricks on using Google Adsense to make a hefty pocket money.

Nettech’s training now in Manipal University!

Posted: October 5, 2011 by Gaurav Prakash in ISTE
Tags: ,

Nettech in association with ISTE is coming to Manipal University for an exclusive training in Network Management and Ethical hacking.

For additional details please visit

1 We do only Networking!!

First and foremost; we specialise in computer networking. We do not offer any other course except Computer Network Management. As we conduct only one course, it gives us ample time and opportunity to make the course better and updated with relevant and latest networking technologies. Our faculty team has worked in various training assignments with some of the premier Institutions in India including IIM Calcutta, IIT Kanpur, IIT Kharagpur, BITS-Pilani, XLRI Jamshedpur, XIM Bhubaneswar, IMT Ghaziabad and many more. At Nettech you can be rest assured for a very focus and professional training environment on Networking.

2Do it yourself approach!!

If you are coming for any of our program, don’t worry we will not bombard you with theories. We don’t deny that theories are important, one need to know the theory to understand things, why it works, and how it works. At Nettech we allow you to go through the theory component at your own space in your leisure time.  We will put 100% focus on practical. It’s complete do it yourself approach, you need to try of your own to understand what it is. Round the clock lab and Nettech support staff will help you to do all your experiment of your own. At Nettech, if we mention a topic, be assured we will show you the same practically.

3 Faculty members!!

Swapan Purkait, Director Nettech Private Limited who will share his industry experience with the students. Mr Purkait has worked with ICNET, first commercial email company in India, Novell, the company known for his networking OS, Netware and he is also the founder director of Nettech Private Limited. He is currently pursing his Doctoral research from IIT Kharagpur. He is a Certified Novell Engineer and Lead Auditor for Information Security Management System (ISO 27001).

4 Our Grouping system!!

At Nettech we emphasize on team work. Students are asked to work in a group of six/eight members. No two students of the same college will be in the same group. There are group tests; the group gets 10 or 0, resulting all members getting 10 or 0. Our Binary marking system encourages students to come together and work as a single unit. At Nettech we are looking for a team who will unite against all odds and succeed not only in our course but in their future professional life.

5 T10 – Our Testing system!!

Its either you pass or you fail no fifty-fifty. We take pride on our testing system, it’s the backbone of Nettech.  T10 – is Ten minutes – 10 marks. We have trained more than 5000 engineering students till date. Not a single student has ever asked us to stop the system. T10 – is all practical, in the lab, students will be given a practical problem, which they need to solve in 10 minutes. The best part there will be a 10 minute count down timer running on the LCD projector which will always create that extra pressure that you are racing against time. Think about the group test – 10 minutes – six students – one problem – 10 marks – and a count down timer, one need to be there to feel the excitement. Yes, we know its tough, it’s a stiff climb, but ask those students who have completed their task in less than 10 minutes, they will tell you – its worth the pressure. If you think you know it all, you are a brilliant trouble shooter, we will say come, take a T10 test, you will know where you stand.

6 Transparent Grading system!!

If you have given a test this morning, the result will be out by the evening or latest by next day morning. And it will be out on the intranet, where each and every student can see their as well as others marks. We encourage students with different grade colours. TOP 10 will be in blue colour, so you will always know, who to catch for that crucial tips. Then there will be colours like green, red and black. Don’t get scared its for your benefit only. We have seen students who have come from red to BLUE and topped the batch. And yes there is this extra certificate for your extra effort, we will give and extra certificate to the top 10 students saying that they are the top ten out of a batch of 200 students. So get ready for a tough competition.

7 Lucrative incentives!!

If you are ready to put your best for the program, don’t worry you will be well rewarded. Depending upon venues, we give lucrative incentives, for example in our Sikkim program top 3 students gets a Helicopter ride. In some centre we give prizes as books, in some cases we provide free hosting space as well as free database and email support for one year. There is also the opportunity to join the Nettech Team for the next program.

8 Continuous feedback process!!
Its YOU who is important, without you the program cannot be successful, that’s the only reason we have a continuous feedback process. We try to adapt the pace of the program depending upon your feedback. You will be requested to give your feedback on a regular basis, formally – informally, on the class or off the class. The best part of Nettech, as we always say we live in a democratic country named INDIA, we are not a Taliban run state, in our country we the people decide – what need to be done. At Nettech, you can change the topic, reschedule a class, change anything that you want just ask 51% of the total students to support your view and we will do it as you want. – So enjoy !!!
