558 students awarded degrees at the ninth convocation of Osmania University College for Women
Indian woman should also pursue two to four careers in a lifetime like their counterparts in the North America where the practice is common and it is not an impossible task in the present era of ever changing global economy, said Professor H. Devaraj, vice-chairman, University Grants Commission.
He was addressing the students of Osmania University College for Women, Koti, at the ninth convocation held here on Saturday.
Mr. Devaraj said that while talent may contribute to success, it is actually hard work that makes the difference between success and failure. A total of 558 students from Sciences, Arts and Commerce streams were awarded degrees at the convocation.
Four girls - Rinki Agarwal (B.A), Uzma Sultana (B.Com - computers), Srividya Yammanur (B.Sc - physical sciences) and Cunchan Sumathi (B.Sc - biological sciences) were awarded gold medals.
Prof. S. Satyanarayana, Vice-Chancellor, Osmania University, said industries should partner with universities and higher educational institutions in conducting short-term orientation-cum-training programmes for fresh graduates as it helps in bringing down the huge gap between the number of students passing out of the universities and those who actually land up with jobs.
