Four-day global meet begins at KLCE

’Globalisation throwing new challenges’

Efforts to bring international expertise to college

VIJAYAWADA: Former Chairman of the All India Council of Technical Education S. Rame Gowda on Monday said that a majority of the youth were spending their energies in the service sector just to earn a few dollars more.

Dr. Gowda wanted them to rather concentrate on creative and productive sectors to pave the way for a brighter future.

Dr. Gowda delivered the keynote address of the four-day international seminar on ‘Recent advances in experimental fluid mechanics’, organised by the Koneru Lakshmaiah College of Engineering.

He wanted young brains to draw from the experiences of different subject experts and try experimenting them to create new things and new products.

“Creativity and invention are to be promoted and youth have to be diverted from the service sector to become inventors and creators,” he observed.

Stating that people would have to be measured by the quality of the work that they deliver, he wanted people to upgrade their knowledge every day to be relevant to the ever changing world. Globalisation and digitalisation was throwing more challenges to the present-day society.

College Chairman K. Satyanarayana, who chaired the inaugural session, said they were trying to bring international expertise to the campus to improve research and development.

He said they had already succeeded in improving the teaching-learning activity on the campus and were now concentrating on research activity.

Programme chairperson and head of the school of mechanical engineering K.L. Narayana underlined the growing impact of experimental fluid mechanics.

Principal L.S.S. Reddy and others were present.
