He was speaking at the fifth convocation of the Delhi Technological University (DTU) here during which a total of 2099 degrees were conferred. Two Chancellor Medals and 43 Vice-Chancellor Medals were also awarded at the event.
He stressed that top brass institutes like IITs, DTUs should make it a point that the students passing out will majorly be job providers, not job seekers.
DTU's Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Singh urged the students to always remember their responsibilities towards the nation and to never indulge in any activity which is not in the interests of the country.
Delhi LG Anil Baijal, the Chancellor of DTU, emphasised the need for preparing individuals so that they contribute to social issues, like healthcare, environment, cyber security and artificial intelligence. "Your mind is a powerhouse of energy and has unrealised potential.
With your skills, knowledge and creative energies, you must offer a part of your life for changing other lives. If each one of you is able to bring a positive change in one person's life, imagine the high surge of overall accomplishment that you shall bring to yourself, your family members, friends and your university," he said. He advised the university to keep revising its syllabus in order to cope with the demands of highly competitive industry.
UGC chairman Prof D P Singh said the Higher Education Institutions should come up with solutions to combat pollution and provide environmental sustainability. "Excellence does not come by accident, rather it is a process of striving to better oneself," he said.
