Students of Stanley College of Engineering and Technology for Women unwind at fresher’s party

For the students of Stanley College of Engineering and Technology (SCET) for Women, it was a day of ‘firsts’. The college celebrated its first Fresher’s Day, its first function and also it was the first time that the students and parents gathered together under one roof.

The inaugural fresher’s function organised by the management was well attended by pretty girls dressed in their best and proud parents. Speaking on the occasion, Talla Venkat Reddy said that the college was doing its best to make the students allrounders. T. Navneetha Rao, Former Vice-Chancellor, OU, recollected the erstwhile glory of Stanley Girls High School and urged the first batch of SCET to bring back the lost glory.

“Make the most of your four years here and acquire different skills during your stay here,” he said adding that the management should provide the students with capsule courses in communication skills and management skills.

“Learn to balance academics with co-curricular activities. Attend and conduct seminars, symposiums, present papers and learn to write project reports,” advised the academician. The need to develop leadership skills and communications skills was also emphasised by Masame Nakane, CEO, Safala Pharmaceuticals who spoke about the impact of recession on countries across South East Asia including Japan.

T. Tirupathi Rao, Vice-Chancellor, Osmania University, said it was important for the college not just to develop its students as good ‘technical engineers’ but also as good ‘social engineers’. “Students work very hard to enter engineering colleges but don’t even put in 30 per cent of that effort during engineering,” he said.

The function was followed by a cultural programme which included ramp walk, dance and song events etc.
