He also stressed the importance of dedication to one's profession and the need to have proper planning before taking up and implementing any work.
In the brief address to the students and parents, the Dean of A.C. Tech expressed delight over the fact that the students were fortunate enough to have entered a much sought-after institution for higher studies in Engineering and Technology. He also informed the students about the various facilities available in the campus, and highlighted the accomplishments of the campus faculty and assured the parents that their children were in safe hands.
The Heads of the various departments gave necessary information about the academic design of the first year courses and also emphasised the need for continued hard work. Additionally, the directors from various sectors also addressed the gathering, stressing that the campus is not merely a place to impart education but also provide opportunities for character building.
