With immense pleasure and gratitude, I take this opportunity to thank you for making Baba Farid Group of Institutions (BFGI) as the most preferred institution of the region. Your belief in us inspires us to consistently remain on the top by continuously raising our standards of education and improving the students learning outcomes. Success of any institution largely depends on the kind of co-operation between the learners, mentors, parents and the community. I am glad that at BFGI we have been successfully able to build such an enabling environment which ensures a 360 degree growth of students encompassing a brilliant combination of knowledge, wisdom, skill and intellect.
Baba Farid Group of Institutions believes in treading its path to success and our achievements over the last two decades stand witness to the fact. The journey that started way back in 1993 from a primary school to a Group of Institutions in 2018 has been absolutely great and fruitful. It is an incredible honor for us to be associated with some of the greatest multinational companies – which includes Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, HP, HCL, Nokia and many more. We are the only institute in the region to be associated with almost all the major industrial bodies of the Country like FICCI, CII, ASSOCHAM, PHD Chamber of commerce, AIMA, NASSCOM, NSDC etc.
We have been working on number of new initiatives to keep ourselves updated as per the changing scenarios in the education system and give our students every possible option to select the career path of their choice. Under our flagship initiative – School of International Studies, we will be very soon going to introduce new state of the art International School based on Cambridge, International Baccalaureate and Canadian Curriculums which will give opportunity to students to earn the global degrees right from the School level. This year we are also introducing the much awaited concept of Twinning Program in our institution which will give opportunity to complete their studies partially in BFGI and partially in Foreign Universities\Colleges of student’s choice.
The success of any higher Educational Institution depends upon many factors and one of the prominent factors is the laboratories. These labs are instrumental in providing hands on practical experience to the students and play a pivotal role in their careers. At BFGI, laboratory sessions are primarily designed to develop proficiency in technical skills, provide an opportunity to place theory in context, develop critical thinking skills and promote enquiry based learning. BFGI continuously enhance and up-gradation of labs & workshops as per the latest industrial advancements. So looking at its significance, this year BFGI is all set to overhaul it’s all the labs & workshop to make it state of the art for the Students, Faculty & Industry by equipping with the latest tools / instruments & technologies prevalent nowadays in the Industry. This year BFGI would be investing heavily to provide its students best in class facilities and faculty for research & innovation by revamping these labs in to “Live Labs”. Our goal is to work very closely with the industry so that BFGI constantly endeavor to provide our students the opportunity to work on industry oriented live projects and makes them ready for the world of work. Not only this, looking at the latest trends and technological advancements happening in this fourth generation of Industrial Revolution, we are all set to launch the Centre of Excellence’s in association with top most multinational companies like BOSCH, Siemens, Mitsubishi and many more under School of Skill Development which will not only make Engineering students skilled as per industry demands but would also introduce them to the world of work through internships, apprenticeships and finally a job offer in their dream company.
Looking at the present scenario of Punjab there is an ample scope of research & development in the agriculture & allied fields and to give away the practical exposure to the students of this stream, this year BFGI allocate 10 Acres of farm land to its students for performing Research based projects, Incubation projects, Crop Diversification, Live Organic Farming and other live projects provided by the Industry in this coming year. Through this unique effort, BFGI will take a lead in nurturing the skills of its students to aspire them to augment such entrepreneurial capabilities by giving them this Marketing platform in coming future by setting up an Incubation Centre to evolve the startup ecosystem in agriculture sector. This year BFGI is all planned to work very closely with the farmers of the region to educate them with the latest trends & technological advancements in agriculture sector and other allied fields so that by the actual implementation of these latest techniques farmers will earn more income for their households.
For converting our students into socially sensitive citizens we have been dedicating each year to specific social cause since year 2010. To continue further, BFGI has dedicated the year 2018 to Health awareness. Under this social cause we are running various campaigns to promote health awareness amongst our students and the people of our region. We have invited dignitaries like Siri Siri Ravi Shankar for conducting the Art of Living session at our campus and also working with Mr. Kulwant Singh Dhaliwal for running campaigns on Cancer Awareness. BFGI has also launched several health awareness campaigns on social media giving health tips to people all around the world.
Our ultimate aim is to transform Baba Farid Group of Institutions in to a Hi-Tech University with the core motive of having industry friendly curriculum to mould the students in to socially responsible citizens. So, with all this happening in the Institution, I can confidently assure you that we will not leave any stone untouched to ensure the success of our students.
