Convocation ceremony

Challenges are always there, but are you ready to face them? Questioned A Rajarajan, Director of Satish Dhawan Space Centre SHAR, ISRO, Sriharikota to an enthusiastic crowd of 5000 students who had come to receive their medals, ranks, and degrees at the 15th Annual Convocation at SRM Institute of Science & Technology, Kattankulathur on November 10, 2019.

The chief guest for the event added that hard work and dedication would yield better results. He also urged students not to give up on their dreams. "If India has to become the best country in the world, it needs all-round development and the primary focus is education. SRM has been contributing massively in this endeavor."

He added, "It is important to have ambitions in life. And this comes only through performance. So unless you translate your thinking into action, these are not possible. You should never expect someone to tell you what to do."

He then presented medals and ranks to 113 candidates from the Faculty of Engineering and Technology and 90 students received their Ph.D. degrees. A total of 9010 students were awarded Under Graduate and Doctoral Degrees at the convocation.

K N Vyas, Chairman of Atomic Energy Commission and Secretary of Department of Atomic Energy(DAE), Government of India was awarded Honorary Degree of Doctor of Science (D.Sc.) (Honoris Causa) by Founder-Chancellor of SRM Institute of Science & Technology and Member of Parliament, Dr. T. R. Paarivendhar.

In his acceptance speech, Dr KN Vyas said, "I am happy to know that SRM has been generating one-megawatt solar power. However, we scientists believe that nuclear energy is also equally important as it can be used as an alternative source for solar energy. We should soon shift our focus to alternative energy as our natural resources are depleting."

Vice-Chancellor of SRMIST, Dr Sandeep Sancheti presented the Annual Report. The Convocation was held in the presence of President of SRMIST Dr P Sathyanarayanan and Co-chairman of SRM Ramapuram S Niranjan, Pro-Vice Chancellor Dr TP Ganesan, Pro-Vice Chancellor Dr R Balasubramanian, Registrar Dr N Sethuraman, Members of the Board of Management, Members of the Academic Council among others.
