Achieve the same success in other fields: NITT-T Director
Thanjavur: M. Chidambaram, Director of National Institute of Technology, Tiruchi, has said that the Indian software industry has become a successful model for the world.
Delivering the 19th annual convocation address at Sri AVVM Pushpam College at Poondi near here, Chidambaram said that the Indian software model has changed the connotation of “Made in India.” It commanded respect in the global software industry.
“Consciously we need to translate that success model to all other fields of arts, science, engineering and technology too,” Dr. Chidambaram said.
Many developed countries have started setting up shops in India for sourcing high and technical skills in all streams of science. More and more multinational companies were turning towards our country to establish their research and development wing and to set up their manufacturing base also. Many US accounting firms were outsourcing routine jobs from small accounting firms here. Similarly, there was a large volume of work flowing into our country in areas like medical transcription and legal transcription, he said.
Many software companies were increasingly recruiting arts and science graduates as programmers. Many of these companies not only offered jobs to arts and science graduates , they also facilitate higher studies in reputed institutes like BITS.
No dearth of opportunity
“This generation of yours is lucky for there is no dearth of opportunity to perform and excel,” he said.
Contribution of scientists from our country towards the growth of science in developed countries had been accepted throughout the world. Supremacy of Indian intellectual capital had been globally established. Opportunity for creating wealth in India was at par with the best in the world.
