P.P. Chandrachoodan, senior scientist at Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, inaugurated ‘Tathva,' the three-day annual techno-management festival of the National Institute of Technology, Calicut (NIT-C) on its campus at Chathamangalam in the district on Thursday.
Dr. Chandrachoodan, an eminent figure in the field of research and development, laid stress on the need for serious research in today's world. “To listen, reflect, and practise are the three integral parts of learning,” he said adding that events such as ‘Tathva' could play an important role in providing platforms for applying knowledge.
‘Tathva,' according to the organisers, is intended to provide the best and the most relevant platform for budding engineers to hone and exhibit their engineering acumen and extra-curricular skills.
“It will be a blend of competitions, lectures, workshops, demonstrations, and presentations of papers in technology and management,” said Praveen Koshy Sam, an organiser.
NIT-C director M.N. Bandyopadhyay presided over the function. Convener of ‘Tathva11' G. Santhosh Thampi; Dean, student welfare, C. Muraleedharan; technical affairs secretary Rojith Jones; and student coordinator Marilyn George spoke.
