Education plays a vital role in building the future of our nation by transforming lives and communities. We have several educator heroes who help students aim high and achieve their potential, often meeting and overcoming considerable challenges along the way. Recently Delhi based MT Research & Educational Services (MTRES) came up with Teaching Excellence Awards (TEA) 2018, to recognize the monumental role teachers play in our society as they instil a desire to learn and achieve and create tomorrow’s leaders. Meet one of the awardees, Vikram Kolhe, Associate Professor, Sandip Institute of Technology and Research Centre, Nashik, who has been honoured with Promising Teacher Award in MTRES TEA 2018.
MTRES is doing noble work by providing platform to explore the research work and innovations in technical education. I would like to congratulate MTRES for the efforts made towards providing support and appreciation to honour teaching fraternity.
Prof. Vikram Kolhe
Prof. Vikram completed B.E. Mechanical in 1998 from Pravara Rural Engineering College, Loni (affiliated to Pune University). He started his professional career as a lecturer at Sir Visvesvaraya Memorial Engineering College, Nashik, immediately after his graduation. During his tenure of around 8 years at this college, he shouldered the responsibility of HoD (Mechanical) and contributed in developing the department and its various laboratories. Meanwhile, he also completed M.E. (Design Engineering) in 2006 from Pune University.
Later, he joined NDMVP Samaj’s College of Engineering in 2006 as an Assistant Professor and handled various responsibilities like Examination Coordinator, Application Receipt Centre Coordinator (Centralised online admission process by DTE, Maharashtra). Presently, he is associated with Sandip Foundation, a premier organization in North Maharashtra region, since 2010 and has served with duties like Dean Academics, HoD (Mechanical), Workshop Superintendent, College Examination Officer, Coordinator of annual social gathering, etc.
Helping others and empowering people motivates me. I feel teaching job is the best for this purpose. When I know that my efforts are following the correct path, it encourages me to push more.
Prof. Vikram Kolhe
Prof. Vikram is currently pursuing Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Savitribai Phule Pune University, Pune. The topic of his research is Design and analysis of Coriolis mass flow meter in laminar flow region. Coriolis mass flow meters are direct mass flow measurement devices widely used in many industrial applications, since they can be built very compactly and are accurate, reliable and independent of changing fluid properties. Their general applications are found in the water, wastewater, mining, mineral processing, power, pulp and paper, petroleum, chemical, and petrochemical industries.
His research work aims to evaluate the performance of meter in laminar flow region with study of effect of various parameters like sensor location and frequency of vibration on the meter performance. His research involves the fundamentals of fluid dynamics, instrumentation & electronics engineering. The design & performance of Coriolis flowmeters involves multidisciplinary elements like fluid dynamics, study of geometrical aspects, vibrations, electronics for driving, sensing and processing and software for data manipulation & control. This leads to significance of mechatronics approach in the design of these meters.
We, as teachers who develop future leaders, need to motivate students with learning, exploring, investigating, discovering and inquiring. Together teaching and learning must take place for upliftment of your personality.
Prof. Vikram Kolhe
In around 20 years of his professional career, he has presented and published a total of 16 research papers in various journals and conferences of repute, attended 7 STTPs, 15 workshops and organised various national level workshops and international conferences. He is a life member of Indian Society for Technical Education and Indian Institute of Metals. He is continuous source of motivation, support and guidance to his students in their research projects. He has guided his students in filing 4 patents for their projects. After completion of his PhD, Prof. Vikram aspires to involve himself in research activities. He believes that aligning the vision and values of the Institution with your own is one way to achieve success.
MT Research & Educational Services is an initiative to bridge the gap between academics and industry. It was founded in 2013 with the combination of industry, academic and research personnel. They execute various educational events (Conferences, Seminars, Workshops, Short Term Courses, Trainings and Competitions) throughout India. They provide various educational platforms for direct engagement of students, academicians and corporates. They execute internships and placement drives also in colleges. Website.
