He was speaking at the Graduation Day of M Tech and MBA programmes offered by Sri Jayachamarajendra College of Engineering (SJCE) here on Sunday.

Dr Raj said that it is always imperative that you need to face tough challenges in order to achieve your goals. The country faced a lot of problems at one time, but graduates and scientists helped in overcoming those situations by finding suitable solutions, he added.


Dr Raj said that primary importance should be given to research. “Research is like giving birth to a baby; You need to take care of it continuously for a long time,” he added.
Advising students, he said, “Always remember that individuals with vision and passion can remove disparities and disillusionment with their capacity, capability, commitments, approaches and selfless service.”

Key driver

In his speech, Dr Raj mentioned that energy is a key driver, which along with education, healthcare, water, food and other related issues about infrastructure would enable India in becoming one among five largest economies by 2025.

He said that policy planners are imparting attention to each and every possible resource of power generation.

 By 2052, nuclear share is expected to be 25 per cent, he added. However, he said that the focus is on clean coal technologies.


He said that few issues requiring careful consideration and planning are the optimal exploitation of available energy resources, diversity of energy supply resources, energy technologies, power generation and distribution policies. Dr Raj also emphasised on a robust infrastructure and multi-disciplined human resources at all levels as a key to succeed.

Suttur Mutt Seer Shivarathri Deshikendra presented the medals and certificates to the rank holders.
