Civil Engineering Association Immersion Program

Civil-Engineering-Association

The first immersion program for the members of CEA was so much interesting and there was a lot more to learn. The program had events that were new. It is held on January 11 & 12, 2020

It was helpful in a way to learn about Leadership, Self motivation and Communication. The parts of communication which included Deep freeze, Derive and Deliver taught the decorum of speaking on stage. We thank Mr. Hari Shankar, President of MBA for making his time for us.

We had a Skype call with one of our Seniors who’s currently studying his masters at Canada. We thank Mr. Pranesh for sharing his experience on his endeavors. That was really a good idea for people who had their idea on higher studies abroad.

The tapping of numbers should be named as learning the quality of being a better leader and to help us think out of the box than calling it as a game. That was the real time learning experience.

Finally, the movie “Invictus” of Nelson Mandela gave us the sensible note on leader and treating the fellowmen with equal rights that they deserve. Self portrait and SWOT analysis were also done for understanding and analysing ourselves as and individual. We look forward for more togetherness and team bonding for the immense positivity that it offers to us to impact more. We thank our department coordinator, hod and the management staffs who supported us in conducting this immersion program.

PEP TALK

A poem for the Speaker

“Village life as a child from childhood

You went to the top of the intermediate course

You learned to correct both variables in debit mail with physics

In the sixth grade, the battery on top of the battery made you a gold medal at the Technical College

Five and a half hours of dedication to the word “single-minded devotion to your goal” to succeed in your work

Parents are proud to have a child like this

Teachers should be proud to teach a student like this

You have made a friend proud of his friendship

Veeramanikandan is the son of a hero who is going to set foot in ISRO in the future”

PEP TALK 009 – MOMENT TO SMILE

PEP TALK

Why did the MONA LISA become one of the most famous paintings of all the time? That’s a question an incredible amount of people have asked themselves in the past. And one possible answer is this: Because of her unique smile.

Yes!! The topic is MOMENT TO SMILE. The last pep talk was given by Ms.Ajrithaa, 3rd yr civil department. She started with a small exercise and everyone woke up at that moment with a great smile. To all the broken hearts, life isn’t over yet. It still has a lot to teach you. For this moment, enjoy the pretty little things and wear a smile. To those who broke you, realize they were the one who made you smile too. Hear all mouths; still take your own decisions. Learn the lesson from one’s life, but never copy their life. This life is yours and your opponent isn’t the same as theirs.

The smile is “The symbol that was rated with the highest positive emotional content”

PEP TALK

PEP TALK 13 – Public speaking

PEP TALK

Vishnu Dhyanesh. V from 2nd year B. Com PA KCLAS gave talk on public speaking.

We had a great session on do’s and don’ts about public speaking and stand up comedy. The main part for the public speech to be great is the body language. Then comes the vocal modulations and the content. So whatever the content may be if the body language is not good then the whole presentation would be ruined. Parts of the body to be taken care when speaking. Legs, hands, eyes, lips.

Eyes: Always maintain eye contact with the audience.

Legs: Use a certain pattern of walking don’t show your back which may not look majestic.

Hand: Wave your hands when explaining something this attracts audience attention.

Lips: Always smile smile smile.

A good joke contains 3 things:

The base , the high pitch, the punch line.

Base the audience with a good joke. Give them hype in the high pitch , and at last make them laugh through sudden fall as punch line.

These were the valuable insights shared by the Speaker. We thank him on behalf of Civil Department for his time. The PEP Talk series for this semester turned out to be an excellent end.
