Sisodia urges students to be job providers

Was speaking at DTU convocation

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Thursday urged students to become job providers instead of job seekers.

Mr. Sisodia was speaking at the 5th convocation ceremony of Delhi Technological University. A total of 2,099 degrees were conferred, including 1,647 UG, 383 PG and 69 PhD degrees.

Mr. Sisodia appealed to students to become job providers and promised that the Delhi government would provide grants for promoting new research and development ideas.

Contribute to society

Lieutenant-Governor Anil Baijal, who is also the Chancellor of DTU, said the real purpose of education was to prepare individuals to contribute to social issues such as healthcare, environment, cyber-security and Artificial Intelligence.

“Your mind is a powerhouse of energy and unrealised potential. With your skills, knowledge and creative energies, you must offer a part of your life for changing other lives. If each one of you is able to bring a positive change in one person’s life, imagine the high surge of overall accomplishment that you shall bring to yourself, your family members, friends and your university,” said the L-G

Mr. Baijal advised the university to keep revising their syllabus in order to cope with the demands of highly competitive industry.

University Grants Commission Chairman D.P. Singh was the chief guest at the event. In his convocation address, Mr. Singh emphasised the need of holistic development of an individual, apart from educational growth.

He also urged the higher education institutions to come up with solutions to combat pollution and provide environmental sustainability.
