AMRITSAR : At least 590 students were awarded degrees at the annual Convocation of Khalsa College of Engineering and Technology (KCET) here today. During the convocation address, Khalsa College Governing Council (KCGC) President Satyajit Singh Majithia who was chief guest lauded the role played by the engineers in the development of the nation.

Stressing on the quality of education, Majithia meanwhile expressed concerns over the rising number of institutions which are failing to keep up with the standards. “There is a rising growth of the engineering Colleges in the state but ironically the quality of studies is deteriorating”, said he adding that non-attending colleges are playing havoc with the career and lives of the students.

He congratulated the students and faculty for the overall achievements of the College, which had recently been awarded the A Grade by National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). KCGC honourary secretary Rajinder Mohan Singh Chhina who was the guest of honour said the technical Colleges like KCET have pivotal role to play in the society. He said the technical institutions equip the students with skills and employability.

Director-Principal Dr. Manju Bala, earlier welcomed the guests and highlighted academic, sports and other achievements of the College. He said many students earned university merits, gold medals and were placed in reputed MNCs. She also highlighted the excellent research orientation of the faculty for their growth as teachers through their participation in FDPs, seminars, workshops, expert Lectures and MOUs with institutes of repute.

Majithia earlier said after passing out the students will have an entirely different world out there where only knowledge, hard work, sincerity, perseverance, strong determination to succeed. “Remember that there are no shortcuts to success in life. You may have to learn pragmatic time management and acquire very good soft skills and communication skills along with reaching to the top in your chosen field”, he said.

KCGC vice President Swinder Singh Kathunangal, joint secretary Gunbir Singh, SS Mannan, Ajmer Singh Hewir, Er.Paramjit Singh Bal, Dean Mohinder Sangita, Principals of various Khalsa institutions and senior faculty were present.
