Governor exhorts students to use skills for rural rise
One of the fastest growing economies of the world, India, is fast progressing in technical know-how and recent launch of PSLV by ISRO bears testimony to this. The students trained technically must use their knowledge for the progress of the country, especially rural areas, said the governor Baby Rani Maurya.
Presiding over the 14th convocation ceremony of College of Engineering Roorkee, she exhorted the students to take the knowledge they have gained from the college, for making positive changes towards the betterment of the society and helping those who do not have the privileges like them. Citing examples of some social organisations working towards bringing basic facilities of potable water and electricity in distant parts of the state, she encouraged the students not to forget their own land when they get opportunities in foreign lands.
The governor congratulated the toppers for bringing glory to their parents and teachers.
College chairman JC Jain also expressed his views on the occasion. A total of 721 degrees were awarded to the students of Computer Science, Information Technology, Electrical Engineering, Aeronautical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, MCA and MBA and other streams.
