L&T Group company Mindtree hosted its first-ever annual conclave of India’s university senates at Bengaluru on 13-14 May. Aptly named Defining Possibilities, the conclave marked two exciting, action-packed days of wide-ranging discussions and deliberations on all things education and digital.
The event provided a platform to more than 85 of India’s leading academicians and senior Mindtree executives to exchange ideas and insights for broader, more effective industry-academia collaboration in enabling early careers and, in turn, shaping tomorrow’s tech talent.
Mindtree CEO & MD Mr Debashis Chatterjee provided a comprehensive overview of key industry trends and developments.
When it comes to building a successful campus programme, Mindtree takes an engagement-led- recruitment model that captures mindshare and market share. University / institution level customised programmes, such as setting up digital labs, enabling industrial visits, workshops and guest lectures complement Mindtree’s efforts in extending the demand pipeline.
A panel discussion on the ‘post- pandemic new order in higher education in India’ helped the audience discover the helpful insights of four seasoned academicians — Mr Nadarajan R (Dean Placement & Training – PSG College of Technology, Coimbatore), Mr Gautam Banerjea (Director – St Thomas’ College of Engineering & Technology, Kolkata), Dr K S Sridhar (Principal & Dean for Training & Placement – PES University, Bengaluru) and Dr Harpal Thethi (Head of Training & Placement – Lovely Professional University, Punjab).
It was followed by a panel discussion on ‘getting businesses to the future, faster using digital technologies.’ The panelists included Mindtree leaders Mr Radhakrishnan R (Global Delivery Head – Technology Services, Customer Success and Data Common), Mr Suresh H P (Global Delivery Head – Industry Groups), Mr Kaushik Chakraborty (Global Delivery Lead – Customer Success), Mr Nikhil Datar (Global Delivery Head – Communication, Media & Technology), and Ms Ritu Chakrabarti (Global Head – Learning & Development).
Mr Rajiv Krishnan, MD & CEO – Ma Foi, delivered a special address on best practices to improve the quality of education using technology in the talent landscape.
The event gave a fresh impetus and direction to the learning experiences and environments of tomorrow that blur the boundaries between the classroom – real as well as virtual – and the world outside.

Curbing Cybercrime
Curbing Cybercrime
OVER the past several years, cybercrime has hit new highs. As businesses become more technological and interconnected, cybercrime is only set to rise.
At the heart of it, people are the weakest link in digital. It is, therefore, crucial for organisations to raise awareness among staff members to protect them from hackers.
To help curtail the effects of cybercrime, L&T’s Corporate IT department hosted a mega cyber security awareness event at the conglomerate’s Knowledge City campus at Vadodara in Gujarat on 20 May. L&T CEO & MD Mr S N Subrahmanyan and Whole-time Director & Sr EVP – Energy Mr Subramanian Sarma inaugurated the event in the presence of Mr Satish Palekar (EVP & Head – L&T Power) and other dignitaries.
Speaking on the importance of cyber security in professional and personal life, Mr Subrahmanyan gave examples of some latest cybercrimes. “The moment you are connected to the network, you are compromised but don’t realise it. Somebody out there is always interested in our data. So, we must be always vigilant,” he said.
Mr Sarma explained how an individual’s negligence can cause a huge disruption to an organisation. He shared a few cyber-friendly tips.
The event defined and elaborated upon enterprise security concepts and acted as a platform for knowledge-sharing. Its gamification component attracted the audience and they participated enthusiastically, winning exciting prizes.

Customers and prospective customers were upbeat about L&T’s synchronised range of products, including attachments, spares, lubes and sand plant solutions and aggregate crushing solutions – all backed by cutting-edge technologies. The L&T stall also displayed a new range of road machinery manufactured as part of the Atmanirbhar Bharat initiative.

Answering the pressing need for greener solutions, three new eco-friendly, B20-biodiesel-ready hydraulic excavators and a motor grader were launched by Komatsu at EXCON. The current models of road machinery and wheel loaders manufactured by L&T too meet the CEV-IV emission norms.
Then, Komatsu and L&T CMB jointly launched Komatsu Genuine Engine Oil (CK4) to meet stringent lubrication requirements of these engines and provide superior performance.
Affirming a customer-centric approach, Komatsu India and L&T CMB inaugurated a mobile KGO lube van for safe doorstep delivery of lubricants to customer sites. It will carry four barrels, including an empty one, collect used oils and dispense them using an ecologically-safe process. Featuring a viscosity testing facility, the van offers a provision for safe loading and unloading of barrels.
