From The Director's Desk
A Warm Welcome to ISB&M.
Technology has come to define every aspect of lives of individuals, societies and nation-states. Operating smart phones, managing our social media accounts to building and operating large & complex systems such as aircrafts, nuclear reactors and submarines- all entail learning and learning updates. There was a time when students use to graduate out of colleges and universities, used to a take a job and there was no looking back. Like Waterfall model, life was defined by discrete events and stages- taking admission, passing out, taking job, retiring and so on. But, it’s no longer the case. Technology changes every few months. You will have to learn new ways of doing things and update your knowledge continuously without respite. There is no full stop to learning.
So, learn , unlearn and relearn!
Wish you all the best!
