He told students to pursue their dream careers but have their parents’ consent too.

Asked about his line of work, he said the future of mobility is in electric vehicles as they are non-polluting.

Dr Milind Padalkar, dean, student affairs, also welcomed the chief guest, Amit Ganjoo, who is founder and CEO of ANRA Technologies, a company engaged in use of drones to improve services. He said the future belongs to India and “there is immense potential in the aerospace field”.

Since most of the students at the session were from bachelor’s degree courses, the V-C also outlined the changes they would see vis-à-vis their school life. He said that university is a less controlled environment and needs more self-accountability. Therefore, by the time students graduate from university, they would transform into responsible citizens besides being outstanding professionals, he added.

Dr Rama S Komaragiri, dean, academics affairs, shared details about the teaching patterns, credit system and course design. More details were then shared by deans and heads of respective departments. Emphasis was laid on international partnerships and the university’s achievements so far.

The welcome session concluded with Dr Komaragiri thanking the participants and the guests.
