    MES Faculty Seminar Series

    In 2008, the Forum initiated “MES Faculty Seminar Series” – an innovative concept aimed to create an inter-disciplinary platform for the various specialist departments of the Society. Yet another initiative this year has been the inception of the “MES Student Seminar Series”, in which the students from our various departments are nominated to present their research or field projects carried out towards their graduation.

    About Research Forum

    The idea of the Research Forum was initiated by Dr. Daphne Pillai, Chairperson, MES Management Board in recognition of a need to foster research practices among various departments of the Mahatma Education Society. The Forum was founded in April 2004 when Prof. Smita Dalvi was given its charge as the chairperson.

    With the active patronage of Dr. K. M. Vasudevan Pillai, CEO, MES and enthusiastic and able support of the executive committee members, the Forum has been successful in creating an environment of academic fellowship among diverse institutes of the Mahatma Education Society.

    We are committed to provide a holistic education based on new generation academics that creates not just powerful global career options for our students, but which empowers them to become key contributors to the community and the environment in which they live. We strive to achieve nation building through character building and we do so through an approach of mentoring.

    In this fiercely competitive world, success has several dimensions far widespread than the vortex of academia, spreading its tentacles into diverse fields which one has to adept in. Our objective at Pillai’s has always been to create a climate conductive to ‘endeavour’ that students can unleash their untapped potential. At Pillai’s, we will provide you the right environment which will enable you to fulfill all your aspirations and ambitions. Very often one is not even aware of one’s own capabilities and we at Pillai’s believe that even if we succeed in making the student scratch the tip of iceberg, we have set the ball rolling for individuals to achieve ultimate success in life.
