Sunday Express - - TAMIL NADU -

AROUND 8,000 stu­dents of SRM In­sti­tute of Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy got their un­der-grad­u­ate and post-grad­u­ate de­grees dur­ing its 14th con­vo­ca­tion day, on Satur­day at Kat­tankalathur cam­pus.

More than 50 stu­dents re­ceived gold medals and 53 re­ceived PhD de­grees which were given away by the chief guest for the event, V K Saraswat, mem­ber of NITI Aayog. He said that for In­dia to climb higher in the global in­no­va­tion in­dex sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy in­no­va­tion, ecosys­tem must be al­tered. “In the present ap­proach, en­gi­neers wrap up the process af­ter de­sign is seen on com­puter, us­ing im­ported de­sign and sim­u­la­tion tools. This is not good for in­no­va­tion. The process must in­volve de­sign, sim­u­la­tion, build­ing, test­ing, eval­u­a­tion and val­i­da­tion till the prod­uct goes to the mar­ket,” he added.
