Achievement incomplete without quality knowledge: Ex-VC

1,000 graduate on fifth convocation day at SJCE

No achievement is complete without quality knowledge and social responsibility, said former vice-chancellor of Roorkee University H C Visvesvaraya, here, on Sunday.

He was speaking at the fifth graduation day programme at Sri Jayachamarajendra College of Engineering. Speaking about research projects, he said, projects will be of help only if they are completed on time. Or else, maintenance cost of the project will increase proportionately with the delay, he said.

When certain projects are completed, people of a region and the whole country will be benefitted. But, if there is a delay, the fields or the regions, which should be benefitted due to a project, will be hit. Similarly, maintaining quality in projects taken up by engineering students and research scholars is essential.

People who take up research projects should concentrate on these key issues and try to complete them on time, he said.

In order to be a successful engineer, a student should have the ability to differentiate between science, engineering and technology.

Analysing and framing natural laws form the core of science. Technology is the application of scientific theories in various fields, he said.

He advised the students to absorb all knowledge they receive in their professional career. This will help in skill development, which will benefit both the individual and the society, he added.


More than a thousand students from various streams were awarded degrees during the graduation day.

A total of 878 BE, 206 MTech, 60 MCA and 91 MBA students passed out of the autonomous institute. During the programme, 39 medals, of which 27 medals for students who scored the highest mark, were awarded.
