The operations club had its meeting on Saturday, March 24th, 2007 with a second year student Naresh Gunda taking the session. The session covered the use of Excel Solver to solve Linear Programming Problems. He also suggested the students to take a panoramic view of operations and not just think of operations as related to manufacturing. Operations could find applications in banking and IT as well. He also told us about the electives that would probably be offered to us in 2nd year and what subjects would give us an advantage over students from other management institutes.

Then we had the IT and Consulting club which had its first session on Monday, the 26th of March, 2007, with a wonderful presentation from a first year student, Raghuram. The topic for the presentation was Object Oriented Programming. The presentation was targeted at people who were not from computer background in under graduation and were interested in specializing in the systems domain. He started the presentation by giving a lucid picture as to where we, as managers, would get an entry in an IT firm. The presentation went on with a beautiful explanation on the concepts such as classes, objects, inheritance, polymorphism, dynamic binding etc. The kinds of examples he used to substantiate the concepts were really commendable. And people who had genuine doubts or answered questions asked by Raghuram got to ‘munch’ chocolates (courtesy: Raghuram).
The planes are speeding on the runway with engines in full throttle and it would be soon when they would take off! All the best to both the clubs.
