As many as 452 graduating students, including 104 girls, of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Mandi, were awarded degree at its 9th convocation today. Padma Vibhushan Anil Kakodkar, former chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission of India, was the chief guest while Prof Prem Vrat, chairman of the Board of Governors, IIT, Mandi, presided over the event.

Kakodkar virtually congratulated all graduating students. He said, “The world is having unprecedented challenges as well as opportunities. I am sure that graduating from the IIT, Mandi, will be a great asset for you.”

He said, “We are now in an era dominated by high-end technologies, such as semiconductors, artificial intelligence, computing and telecom, advanced aerospace and pharmaceuticals. Soon, new frontiers of technologies exploiting genetics, quantum physics, cognitive and brain sciences, among others, will start dominating. Young engineers need to close in the gaps in these technologies, which currently seem to be expanding for a better future”.

The institute has seen a rise in the number of girl students passing out in all streams. Prof Ajit K Chaturvedi, Director, IIT, Mandi, said, “Despite the challenges posed by Covid, our faculty members and students have achieved all-round success. We will remember 2021 as the year when all of us stepped up to play difficult roles to navigate through these uncertain times.” — TNS
