NEW DELHI: President Droupadi Murmu awarded degrees to the students during the 111th convocation of Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University at Nagpur on December 2.
The President hailed the efforts of Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University faculty in research, innovation and technology. She noted that faculty members of the university have been granted more than 60 patents by the Indian Patent Office.
She urged the students and faculty to focus on research and innovation with attention to the local problems and needs, and implement these innovations. The university said it has an incubation centre to encourage start-ups culture among the students.
“Today the whole world is a global village. No institution can remain cut off from the world,” she added. She urged the university to foster interdisciplinary studies and international collaboration. “Only by sharing research and innovation with each other, we can face the challenges before the world,” the President added.
Addressing the students, the President said that getting a formal degree is not the end of education. They should remain curious and keep learning. Today, when rapid changes are taking place in the field of technology, it becomes even more important to keep learning continuously.
Speaking about the use of technology, the President said that any resource can be used or misused. The same fact applies with technology too. If we use it properly, it will be beneficial for the country and society and if we misuse it, it will be harmful for humanity. Today the use of artificial intelligence is making our lives easier. But its use for “deepfake” is a threat to society. She stated that moral education can show us the way.
The President told students that they are the asset of the nation and society. The future of India rests on their shoulders. Adverse circumstances may come in their life but they should not be afraid of them. She advised them to face those situations with their knowledge and self-confidence, to stay connected with their loved ones and to have faith in their abilities.
