With COVID-19 precautionary measures in place, the department of IT began offline classes on November 17, 2020 and the department of MBA began with second internal exams from November 19, 2020.
Coming to the campus on Tuesday, Ron from II MBA said, “I’m glad I’m back at college. My temperature is checked every day. Social distancing is followed. Exam halls are quite hygienic. I feel safe in and around the campus of AIMIT. I really missed this place in the last 8 months.”
Another student of II MBA Elroy Braganza said that although it seemed scary to return to the College premises due to the prevailing pandemic, the College had made sure to thoroughly follow the required protocols with regard to social distancing and other required precautions. “The exams were conducted in an orderly manner by ensuring that all students went through screening as soon as they arrived at the campus,” he said.
Students have been strictly told to leave the campus immediately after the exams. Dean of MBA Dr Rowena Wright said the students were very cooperative. “Our vibrant campus was missing one vital component and that was ‘our student community’. After almost eight months, the campus is buzzing once again. It is a joy to have the students back on campus. They have been very cooperative and have adhered to the COVID protocols. The College has taken steps to ensure the safety of the students. Thermal check is conducted every day and rooms/halls are sanitised regularly after use. Class sizes have been drastically reduced to ensure social distancing,” she added.
