For a brighter tomorrow

The MS Ramaiah University of Applied Sciences (MSRUAS) inaugurated the undergraduate classes of 2016 in a ceremony held at the University House located in New BEL Road.

 The university has undergraduate and post graduate courses in engineering, dental science, pharmacy, hotel management and design. Over 800 students have been enrolled in various disciplines for the undergraduate programme.

Inaugurating the classes G Nagendra Rao, Director, LEOS-ISRO,said,“ India has been in the forefront of satellite technology. MOM is a success that India has achieved in its maiden attempt. We have the technology to track a car using a satellite 450 km above the earth. Similar technology is being used in Defence to monitor our coastal line and our borders.”

“Benefits of satellite technology are also reaching the common man, for example, satellite technology has ensured that fishermen have a better catch by identifying potential fishing zones through satellites. Students at present are at the threshold of technological revolution. They have to apply the scientific knowledge to solve the problems of the society,” he added.

R H Muralidhara, Director, BEML said, “The meaning of success is not measured by the amount of money you have; rather by how valuable you are to your country and society. Luck comes to those who are successful and not the other way round. Students today are experiencing an information explosion, which has to be used for the right cause.”

M R Jayaram, Chancellor, MSRUAS, added, “We need over 100 universities which are looking at applied sciences for the country to grow. China invested in similar education 30 years ago and the result is for all of us to see. We have to invest in good education if we are to be among the top.”
