Malegaon's first Incubation Centre inaugurated at MMANTC Mansoora
Dr Atiqur Rahman Mohamad, Scientific Officer at Dept. of Nuclear & Atomic Physics at Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), and Arshad Mukhtar, Chairman Jamia Mohammadiya Education Society (JMES) Sunday jointly inaugurated Malegaon City's first Incubation and Research Center at Maulana Mukhtar Ahmad Nadvi Technical Campus (MMANTC).
The newly inaugurated Incubation and Research Center will work as a link between the students of Maulana Mukhtar Ahmad Nadvi Technical Campus (MMANTC), and the Industries and Entrepreneurs of Malegaon City.
"With the inauguration of the Incubation and Research Center today, we have crossed yet another important milestone in the field of education", Arshad Mukhtar , Chairman of JMES said while addressing the Opening Ceremony organised at Abdullah al-Shaya Auditorium in Mansoora, Malegaon City.
'We had planned this Incubation and Research Center the day we had laid the foundation stone of Maulana Mukhtar Ahmad Nadvi Technical Campus (MMANTC) in Mansorra", he added.
'Research Oriented Mindset'
Arshad Mukhtar, chariman of JMES said the sole aim behind the establishment of the center is to promote research in every field, especially the education.
"We want our students - whether they are from our Engineering college, Tibbiya College or Shariah College, to study and work with research oriented mindset", he said.
"Today, I want to declare it, loud and clear, and with cent per cent conviction. A closed mentality can't take us to the path of progress and development. Unless our students master in research, we cannot dream of success and empowerment", he added.
In his speech on the occasion, Dr Atiqur Rahman Mohamad of Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) hailed the Maulana Mukhtar Ahmad Nadvi Technical Campus (MMANTC) Management for opening the Incubation and Research Centre for the Engineering students.
"The focus of studies in most of our engineering colleges is syllabus and text books. Unlike medical colleges that have hospitals attached, engineering colleges don't have any means where their students can explore their ideas and convert them in reality", he said.
"The Incubation and Research Centre at Maulana Mukhtar Ahmad Nadvi Technical Campus (MMANTC) will fill this gap and provide the students a platform to explore their ideas and innovate things beneficial for the mankind", he said.
'Bridge between students and Industries'
Rashid Mukhtar, Secretary of the Campus, while sharing the scope of the centre told the reporters that the Mansoora Incubation and Research Centre will work as a bridge between the students, and industries and entrepreneurs of Malegaon City.
"The focus is to explore the ideas of the students and share it with local industrialists and entrepreneurs so that they can be implemented on the ground", he said.
He said the centre will help the aspiring students to make successful their business models and startups - from very basic to practically running it.
"We want to help our students in all sorts so that they become successful entrepreneurs", he said.
He said some of the students of Maulana Mukhtar Ahmad Nadvi Technical Campus (MMANTC) have already started their businesses, coming out with innovative ideas in their respective fields.
"Ours is probably the first institution in the country which has mentored startup projects before the formal inauguration of an Incubation Centre", he said.
