त्यामुळे भारतीय विद्यापीठे पिछाडीवर – डॉ. विजय भटकर : “कंप्युटिंग कम्युनिकेशन’ आंतरराष्ट्रीय परिषद

पिंपरी : शिक्षणासाठी अपुरा निधी आणि शिक्षणाची रचना, शासकीय निर्बंध यामुळे जागतिक स्तरावर भारतीय विद्यापीठे DSC_1741चमकत नाहीत, अशी खंत ज्येष्ठ संगणक तज्ञ डॉ. विजय भटकर यांनी व्यक्‍त केली.
पिंपरी-चिंचवड अभियांत्रिकी महाविद्यालयाच्या वतीने आयोजित केलेल्या “कंप्युटिंग कम्युनिकेशन, कंट्रोल ऍण्ड ऑटोमेशन’ विषयावर दोन दिवसीय आंतरराष्ट्रीय परिषदेच्या उदघाटप्रसंगी ते बोलत होते.
यावेळी डिफेन्स रिसर्च डेव्हलपमेंट ऑर्गनायझेशनचे (डीआरडीओ) कुलगुरु तथा इस्त्रोचे संशोधक डॉ. सुरेंद्र पाल, संशोधक प्रमोदकुमार मेहेर, संशोधक जी. एस. मनी, पिंपरी-चिंचवड एज्युकेशन ट्रस्टचे अध्यक्ष ज्ञानेश्‍वर लांडगे, सचिव व्ही. एस. काळभोर, विश्‍वस्त भाईजान काझी, कार्यकारी संचालक प्रा. गिरीश देसाई, प्राचार्य डॉ. अ. म. फुलंबरकर, आयोजक डॉ. एस. यू. भंडारी आदी उपस्थित होते.

डॉ. पाल म्हणाले की, भारताने जागतिक मिसाईल क्षेत्रात मोठे प्राबल्य मिळविले आहे. संरक्षण क्षेत्रात पुढे नवीन अभियंत्यांना खूप मोठी मागणी असणार आहे.
कार्यक्रमाचे सूत्रसंचालन अंजली श्रीवास्तव व मीरा नटराजन यांनी केले. तर प्रा. नरेंद्र नेवरे यांनी आभार मानले.

डॉ. भटकर म्हणाले की, परकीय विद्यापीठाचे 3 ते 4 अब्ज डॉलर बजेट असते. त्या तुलनेत आपल्या विद्यापीठांचे एक टक्‍कादेखील बजेट नसते. अशा खडतर स्थितीत भारतीय विद्यापीठे चांगले काम करत आहेत. आज भारत सर्वाधिक वैज्ञानिक व अभियंत्यांचा देश म्हणून नावारूपाला येत आहे. ही जमेची बाजू आहे. पण, युवा अभियंते व वैज्ञानिकांना आधुनिकांमध्ये ज्ञान रुजवण्याची गरज आहे. सुपर संगणक विकसित करण्यासाठी कंप्युटिंग कम्युनिकेशन, कंट्रोल गरजेचे आहे. यासाठी संशोधनात्मक संस्कृती निर्माण व्हावी, या संशोधन संस्कृतीत शिक्षक आणि विद्यार्थ्यांची आवश्‍यकता आहे. त्याशिवाय विकास शक्‍य नाही.
