SJCEM organizes “Laghuswapna” a Management event every year to showcase the SMEs and to bring a team of professionals from different verticals of SMEs onto a common platform.

This year Laghuswapna 2016 event was held on 4th March 2016 in MMS auditorium. Eminent personalities with diversified background graced us on this occasion.

Many industry representatives also attended this event. The Chairman welcomed the guests and addressed the audience.

For this year’s event SJCEM came up with the theme “Industrial Pollution & Its Impact on Water Resources”, which is rightly suited looking at the current scenario in today’s world. We regularly come across incidences of ill-effects of global warming and pollution, depletion and misuse of natural resources, etc. which are major concerns and need to be addressed and taken care of.

The Campus Director and Dean in his presentation highlighted the impact of pollution on global eco-systems.

Mr. Sanjay Ghule, Mr. Pramod Chidgopkar and Mr. Deepak Naik were invited to share their inputs on the theme. The team from Gini Silk Mills Ltd. presented a case study on “Effective Use of Water Resources, Recycling and Reuse.”

A panel discussion was arranged wherein the experts answered various queries asked by the industry participants and the SJCEM students. The audience found the talk and the discussions truly informative and useful.

SJCEM has taken initiative for promoting MSMEs development in Palghar district by proposing to start up “SME Clinic” on the Campus. This Clinic will be a MSME centre to encourage and implement Industry – Institute Interface. It will offer a single point consultancy service to our local SMEs in various areas like HR, Finance, Regulations, Quality and Environmental pollution control.
