content The graduating batch.

The convocation ceremony of East Point Group of Institutions that was held at the college recently had the students turn up in large numbers. Postgraduate certificates, marking the completion of their course, were given away to the students on the occasion.

Though it was a moment of joy to receive the fruits of their hard work, the occasion was steeped in anticipation and anxiety. This institution which comes under both VTU and Bangalore University, made sure that this was a grand ceremony. This was the graduation of the ninth batch of its engineering students along with the MBA and MTech students.

The chief guest,  E S Chakravarthy, Head of Talent Acquisition Group, Tata Consultancy Services advised the students to go for higher education because it is very difficult to return to college once they took up jobs.

 He also suggested some to venture into family business and be entrepreneurs. And for those who have already got jobs, he advised them to join the companies they have been placed in.

He also said that students must have passion, dedication and commitment in their job. He said, “Those who are not placed in jobs need not be disheartened as there are many opportunities ahead. You should search for opportunities and always prepare yourselves to face the challenges.” He laid emphasis on the importance of communication in the modern era and said students should equip themselves with this art.

This convocation ceremony saw 600 students receive their postgraduate certificates in different specialisations like mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and finance, marketing, human resource among others. They were felicitated for meritorious performance in various categories like academics, international relations, best transformation, best team player, leadership and creativity, outstanding service and discipline.

The students were an excited lot. Said Manish B Rao, a final year MBA student, “It is a great feeling to finally get done with studies and step into the corporate world. Though we are filled with anticipation about what the future holds for us, it is one step ahead in our career. Most of us have been placed in companies.”

Dr Roopa, the director of the group of institutions said, “It is sad that these students would be leaving us soon.  But I would like to wish the outgoing batch all the luck in their future endeavours.”
