Hyderabad: Governor Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan on Saturday called for all-round innovation in the education sector to transform India as a self-reliant country.

The Governor exhorted the educational institutions to train students as the multi-skilled graduates endowed with holistic knowledge consisting of core professional knowledge, soft skills, and universal values.

Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan was delivering the Chancellor’s address at the X Convocation ceremony of the JNTU Hyderabad, here.

The Governor appealed to the students to expand their horizons and go that extra mile to emerge winners in their chosen fields like a tree that constantly strengthens its roots and expands.

Technological universities like the JNTU need to emerge leaders in emerging fields like Artificial Intelligence, blockchain technologies, the internet of things, and robotics, etc., that define the future of the world.

“The universities need to attract the global faculty and revamp their curriculum in tune with the fast-changing global dynamics in different fields,” she added.

Underscoring the importance of being brave and courageous in taking venturing into the unknown and exploring the unlimited possibilities, the Governor exhorted the students not to get depressed at smaller failures.

The Governor laid special emphasis on the effective implementation of the National Education Policy-2020 to produce the job creators rather than the job-seekers.

She stated that critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and entrepreneurship capabilities are vital for the students to compete at the global level.

On the occasion, the Governor conferred Dr. S. Chandrasekhar, Secretary, Dept of Science and Technology, Government of India, with an honorary doctorate.

The Governor also presented degrees and gold medals to the winners.

JNTUH Vice-Chancellor Prof. K. Narsimha Reddy, senior faculty members, staff, students, and parents were present. (INN)
