KCT Graduation Ceremony 2022Kumaraguru College of Technology held its graduation ceremony for the students of Under Graduation on Saturday and the Master’s degree scheduled on Sunday for the batches 2019 and 2020.

A whole of 2927 students confer their graduation on consecutive days. Out of the total, 1296 are of the 2019 batch and 1422 are of the 2020 batch.

Balasubramaniam, Correspondent of Kumaraguru Institutes declared the event open and Shankar Vanavarayar, the Joint correspondent, presided over the event delivering the special address.

He said, “The pandemic left us disconnected and now this ceremony brings in the delight and a nostalgic moment.”

He added that in regards to India observing its 75th Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, every individual must take up the responsibility of creating a better nation citing the vision of Dr APJ Abdul Kalam. In the next 25 years of India 100, current youngsters will be the prime strength of the nation and its betterment lies within every individual present here.

While commenting on the technological aspect, he stated that science derives solutions to major global challenges. As graduates of technology, their duty lies to ensure that the inferred knowledge is exhibited in bringing out solutions during a crisis.

He shared a piece of his experience of his student life and added that there is always a chance to prove their excellence and potential. Meanwhile, he said, with the limitless opportunities around, “If I had done things differently” was a constant question, not as regret but for a better approach towards life and its purpose. He added, “You don’t have to be clueless, you should continue to be excited.”

Leading a rhythmic life is a necessity which involves balance and synergy along with joy. Speaking of balance, one must have a stable stand to handle everything around in a prompt manner, be it a profession, family or friends. Simultaneously, one must be conscious enough of things being done and always express gratitude for the same. Learning does not end with educational excellence rather it is a continuous process. Failure is when one assumes to have attained enough knowledge and fails to conquer more of life’s knowledge. Competence is always required but not to compare oneself with the potential of the other. Hence leading an aspirational life is required.

Commenting on the Institute’s growth, he said, “This is an important year not just for you but for the Institution as well, this year marks the centenary of the founder”.

In addition, reported that KCT is geared up for its new campus construction at the Palakkad highway, widening its educational territory.

Saravanan, Principal of KCT, in his welcome address mentioned that the institution is set to establish the new M.Tech in defence technology catering to a fresh exposure towards defence research and developments. Alongside, the institution has introduced various supplementary courses offering 15 credit points, initiating progressive learning.
