Triumphant : The graduating batch in a celebratory mood.

The eighth graduation ceremony of PES Institutions was held at the PESIT campus, Hoskerehalli recently. All the rank holders of the institution had gathered much earlier at the venue awaiting the proudest moments of their lives.

The programme commenced with an invocation song by Sharada Mohan. M R Doreswamy, the founder chairman of the institution, welcomed the gathering.

Dr V S Acharya, the Minister for Higher Education, gave away gold medals to the meritorious students and Padma Bhushan S Ramadorai, Vice Chairman of TCS, delivered the graduation ceremony address.

“In these days of scams and corruption, students need to have the inner strength to avoid the temptations of easy money and power. Build your career with substance and give something of your expertise for the social good,” he advised the students.

“Nowadays, it is possible to make a career out of hobby or passion. Following your heart is the way to go. When you love what you do, you tend to excel in it,” he opined.  

M R Doreswamy revealed that nearly 15,000 students are studying 40 courses in the four different campuses of the institution in Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh.

“In order to cater the needs of the students, we will be opening one more campus on Sarjapur Road the next academic year. We have been collaborating with many leading institutions to impart value-based education,” he said.

The campus wore a new look during the graduation ceremony. The students as well as parents were totally upbeat.

Clad in their convocation dresses, all the graduates were seen greeting each other.

The students also posed for the camera as they threw their caps.

Puja Kumari, who got the eighth rank in B Sc Biotechnology, was very happy on receiving the award from the guests.

“I feel very happy today. I am missing my parents, who are not here at the moment.
The credit goes to my institution as it is the best institution in the City as far as biotechnology is concerned. My teachers, parents and friends supported me and helped me achieve success,” said an excited Puja.

Ambalika Azad, another topper in B Sc Biotechnology too, was on cloud nine.

 “It’s like a dream come true for me. I am waiting for my CAT results as I aspire to enter one of the top B-schools in the country to pursue MBA,” she said.
