17th Graduation Day at Bannari Amman Institute Of Technology

17th graduation Day of Bannari Amman Institute of Technology, Sathyamangalam was held on 2.7.17 at the College premises to confer degrees on students of the 2012-16 batch. Several students and parents participated in the solemn function.
Dr.S.V.Balasubramaniam, Chairman BIT, Delivered the Presidential address and said that education plays a paramount role in today’s world as it has considerably reduced the challenges of day to day living. He said that students who pass out require certain qualities to succeed in industry. Developing team work is very important and ISRO is a classic example of various scientists working together to send satellites into space. One has to view challenges as god given opportunities in profession or in business and succeed in them. Keeping abreast of changes in technology, adapting an inter disciplinary approach and living a life of character and discipline would ensure that they succeed in life. He wished the outgoing students a bright career.,,

Dr.R.V.Ramani, Founder & Mg.Trustee, Sankara Eye Foundation was the guest of honour, spoke of the importance of staying ahead which was the motto of the college. Quite often, the world has place only for the first and not even for the second. Hence the need to aim high and succeed. Dwelling on the need to develop a passion for work, he said that you won”t feel stressed even after 15 hours of work, if you love your job; otherwise you would feel tired even in 15 minutes. Knowledge with love is needed and hence he advised youngsters to help someone whenever they can.
Mr. A S Kiran Kumar, Chairman ISRO, was the Chief Guest, said that we are now living in an era of knowledge as we get the entire information from across the world in our palm. Tracing the history of our space programme, he said that it was the legendary scientist Dr Vikram Sarabhai who wanted India to use the space technology at a time when USA and USSR were competing with each other in the space race. From the first launch in 1963 in Thumba in Trivandrum, ISRO has come a long way with the launch of the polar satellite launch vehicle. It has sent 209 satellites of 28 countries so far since May 1999 and in February this year, created a record of launching 104 satellites in 1 month.. Today India is among a few countries in the globe to develop its own Cryogenic engine. We have also launched satellites for our SAARC members. Today our satellites offer 3 in 1 services of communication, meteorology and broadcasting.
The student community has played a big role in many of our programmes. There are tremendous opportunities for entrepreneurs to provide solution in this sphere. He cited the recent examples of Urban City planning applications using satellite and cultural heritage sites being monitored. Our satellite to Mars has completed 1000 days of orbiting and our Chandrayaan has been launched at a fraction of the cost elsewhere. He appealed to the youth who were in the forefront of the technology revolution to adopt an inter disciplinary approach and contribute to nation building.
He later presented certificates and medals to the graduants. In all, 1024 under graduates, 228 post graduates and 26 Ph.Ds were awarded certificates.
