“A real education will not teach you to be the first. It will tell you to enjoy whatsoever you are doing, not for the result but for the act itself.”
-OSHO

This drive to bring excellence in any and every field, made me step in the most noble occupation of the world - “Education”. I have always believed in making an environment for “Stress Free Education” along with “Industrial Skill Oriented Academics” and also trust to be the best for development. Hence, I started my journey in the field of academics with Computer Engineering; the domain in which I have done my Ph.D.

With Silver Oak University I got the opportunity to lead as Dean, Diploma Studies and also as Head, Department of Computer Engineering along with associated emerging technologies; Cyber Security, Cloud Computing and Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence. With research as a passion, I took up an assignment at Carnegie Mellon University, USA on a Machine Learning Tool in 2012. For student development, I founded IEEE Student Branch at Silver Oak University, which is the most vibrant and active branch in the entire region of Asia Pacific.

For technology enthusiasts, I laid the foundation of REDHAT Academy, SOU wherein more than 150 students and more than 50 faculty members have acquired international certifications. A collaborative venture with a renowned industry was established and a program, MEDHA, is designed for Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to leverage the skills of ML enthusiasts.

I have also been strongly opinionated that such industry oriented academic initiatives with an ecosystem which is peaceful and positive can take the level of education to the pinnacle of excellence. With this belief at the core, we established Supercomputing Facility, Apple Lab, AWS and Oracle Academy, Developer Students’ Club, Google CrowdSource, Google Cloud Platform programs and successfully imparted many such international flagship programs, training & events at Silver Oak University.

We at Silver Oak University believe that the right learning environment is one that empowers students by providing clear expectations, opportunities for practice and feedback, opportunities for dialogue, and opportunities for flexibility. Our responsibility is to create and maintain these optimal environments. Our objectives as an institute are to have students understand the fundamental content of the course, develop critical thinking and problem solving skills that they can apply to the content while reflecting on their own learning.

Conducting research is an important part of the learning experience, It offers students many benefits that includes Fostering critical thinking and analytical skills through hands-on learning, Defining academic, career and personal interests, Expanding knowledge and understanding of a chosen field outside of the classroom, Developing one-on-one connections with distinguished faculty in their field.We are highly focused not only on theory concepts rather we also encourage and provide such an environment where we can see acquired knowledge of concepts gets converted into research and start ups. Both are the key elements to meaningful learning and open up new horizons for the students.

We are also very keen in involving and evolving our students such that they become more aware and responsible for their surroundings specially the society and environment. Anything which is carried out by them has a focus on sustainability. When students get involved at an impressionable age, they not only set a transformational foundation for their lives ahead but also create social capital for the country

Prof. Pratik Joshi

Dean, College of Vocational Education

Today from one end we see youth complaining about No Jobs or Jobs with lower salaries and packages and exploitation by Industry and on the other end we listen to lot of complaints from industry that they don’t get Smart, Skilled, Honest and Hardworking employees to whom they are ready to pay anything they ask.

Whose job is it to bridge this gap? What’s going wrong? As an educationalist, I believe it is our duty. Somewhere we tier 2 or tier 3 institutes have become money earning factories of education who only focuses on number of admissions rather than number of placements or as tier 1 branded institutions we only take brightest of the bright students and certify or brand their degrees with logos of IIMs and IITs and take all the credits for their employability.

We as Silver Oak College of Vocational Education embarked on a journey to bridge this gap by skilling up youth at undergraduate level with degree like B.Voc which gives them theoretical as well as practical learning experience to upskill them in real sense and make them employable and enterprising. We focus on commercializing Skills and Un-Commercializing Education.

Based on Germany’s Dual VET Education System and Guided by India’s National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 we have created robust model to make employable youth from our Higher Education System.

We are trying to fill the gap between Industry-Academia by combining theoretical knowledge with tools such as Internships and On the Job Training (OJT) at industry to provide Skill based Vocational Education in real sense.
