Speaking at the concluding session, the President said the NIT system has been able to provide high-quality technical education to talented students across the country. This network of institutes has taken the opportunity of engineering education to remote corners. NITs were critical to promoting technical education and research.
The President said information technology has a pivotal role in today’s world. “Our Institutes of Information Technology strive to create a unique meeting ground for the two fields of information technology and of management. They contribute significantly to research, teaching and extension work for the integrated application of information technology and management. In an age when IT is critical to almost all our endeavours, this is extremely valuable,” he added.
The heads of these institutes have been gifted with the opportunity to shape the future of the youth of our country. Their work directly affects not only the future of their graduates but also the future of India. The young graduates from their institutes will be the torch-bearers of their generation. By giving them the right knowledge, the right values and the right ethics, the institutes are doing a service to the society, he added.
