National Service Scheme (NSS) has been introduced at Modern Education Society’s College of Engineering in academic year 2005-06 as a part of the extracurricular activity and since then NSS MESCOE Unit is functioning by conducting various activities to fulfill following objectives.
Understand the community in which they work. Understand themselves in relation to their community. Identify the needs and problems of the community and involve them in problem-solving Develop among themselves a sense of social and civic responsibility Develop competence required for group-living and sharing of responsibilities. Gain skills in mobilizing community participation. Acquire leadership qualities and democratic attitudes. Develop capacity to meet emergencies and natural disasters. Practise national integration and social harmony.
The Motto of NSS "Not Me But You", reflects the essence of democratic living and upholds the need for selfless service."
The logo for the NSS has been based on the giant Rath Wheel of the world famous Konark Sun Temple (The Black Pagoda) situated in Orissa, India. The Red & Blue colors contained in the logo motivate the NSS Volunteers to be active & energetic for nation-building social activities. The wheel portrays the cycle of creation, preservation and release and signifies the movement in life across time and space, The wheel thus stands for continuity as well as change and implies the continuous striving of NSS for social change.
It is a student-centered program in which projects are implemented by the NSS volunteers in the community in close collaboration with the community and thereby it provides vast scope for the student's interaction with the people. The students joining this scheme develop many behavioral interactive skills. They visit the rural areas as NSS volunteers during the camps organized by the concerned colleges or departments of the university. The NSS volunteers take initiative in developing a Technocratic Environment and also help the underprivileged people to develop themselves. The scheme promotes the ability to present them in a better way. Thus the ultimate goal of the scheme is to strive to inculcate the bond of patriotism, national integration, brotherhood, communal harmony among these volunteers.
The NSS logo is embossed on the badge of NSS. The eight bars in the wheel of the NSS logo represent the 24 hours of a day. The red colour indicates that the volunteer is full of young blood that is lively, active, energetic and full of high spirit. The navy blue colour indicates the cosmos of which the NSS is a tiny part, ready to contribute its share for the welfare of mankind.
