Coimbatore: Graduates should continue to learn from the world around them, long after they have passed out of educational institutions, K. Kesavasamy, Global Head, Academic Interface Programme, Tata Consultancy Services, said here on Wednesday.

"We need to look for learning opportunities beyond academic boundaries. When we retain our learning urge and also develop a professional value system, the whole world is ours," he said, while delivering the 5th graduation day address at the Park College of Engineering and Tekhnology. Professors, fixed syllabi and learning schedules ensured a disciplined learning environment in colleges. However, on passing out, graduates would have to look for informal learning opportunities on their own. "We cannot expect any more `pampered' learning," he said. P. Selva Ganesh, an alumnus of the college who had studied aeronautical engineering, got his tuition fee of Rs. 1,56,800 refunded for securing the first rank in the Anna University examinations.
