HITAM – Best Practices
Unlike most colleges, HITAM believes that their only objective is just not to help its students secure a degree. Though that is an essential deliverable for any institution, we believe that we cannot confine ourselves to that goal alone, but need to look beyond.
HITAM believes that the years spent at its campus by its students are extremely impactful as that period witnesses their transformation from adolescence to adulthood. Therefore, the college constantly endeavours to shape their attitude and personality to help them emerge as remarkable individuals when they leave the portals of this institution.
With a deep understanding of students and faculty mindsets gleaned over a decade, we have devised a set of best practices to promote a culture of continuous learning and winning both among our students and staff. We are sure that these would help them immensely in unraveling their true calling in their journey of life
We have promoted the formation of affinity clubs essentially to bring like-minded individuals together to enhance their interpersonal skills and foster their team spirit. The groups could range from events to communication to idea sharing. Students choose the theme that appeals to them and enroll as members. Senior faculty members facilitate these group events and guide the members in the conduct of various co-curricular and extracurricular activities aligned to the theme chosen by each group. These group activities provide the students a platform to shed their inhibitions, become more self-driven and express themselves confidently in a forum.

Cloud-based automation system
To support the efficient administration of the college, we have built a unique IT application that manages all the information related to students and the organization. The application is hosted on a dedicated cloud and is available to authorized users 24×7
Being engaged in the noble task of transforming lives through education, the institution has also factored the need for its self-transformation in the course of its journey. Accordingly, the following organization-wide initiatives have been set rolling.
