Nanotechnology opens new vistas
With the Indian Government having earmarked Rs 100 cr for its nanotechnology scheme and several western countries too investing huge sums for research in this field, there is a lot of buzz surrounding this specialisation. Its tremendous research and job potential makes it a calling of the future, writes Manish Kumar Singal

WITH the rapid strides being made in research in the field of nanotechnology, it is emerging as an area of fast growth and potential employment. This technology has the potential to change the world around us in unimaginable ways. Soon, it will impact every aspect of our lives from medicine to computers to the energy we require to the cars we drive and so on.

"Work upon your strengths"

Face an interview confidently
by Usha Albuquerque
HE mere thought of an interview is enough to make even the most self-confident person nervous. An interview, which is normally conducted after your resume and possibly a written test have provided the initial means of assessment, is often the culmination of the selection process which enables the interviewer/s to test verbal communication skills, and the candidate's suitability for the job or course of study.

Youth get training as presenters
The five-day Vani Certificate Course held by the local AIR station to train newcomers for the job of radio presenter concluded here last week. As many as 14 persons from varied backgrounds, including mass communication students, housewives, and professionals from the print and electronic media, participated in the event.

Gem of an option
The growing market for branded ornaments has led to a demand for a new breed of jewellery designers and other professionals like gem appraisers. With several institutes offering specialised courses in this field, jewellery designing is no longer a family trade but a lucrative career option for first-generation gemologists who can cater to a niche market for custom-made, designer jewellery, writes Smriti Kak Ramachandran
ewellery designing has come out of the closet: It is no longer a cloistered trade carried out by semi-literate goldsmiths in family vaults, passed down like a well-kept secret from generation to generation. Instead, thanks to the advances in technology, it has landed on the drawing board with some firms even using computer-aided designs to create exquisite pieces in virtual reality.

Meeting the need for manpower, the MAIT way
S we make rapid strides in technology, there is a growing need for institutions that can not only provide quality education but also guide and give students an edge in a competitive world. The Maharaja Agrasen Institute of Technology, Delhi, one such institute, was established by the Maharaja Agrasen Technical Education Society in 1999.
