IITians can be a game changer for India, says President Kovind

President Ram Nath Kovind on Thursday encouraged the students of IIT-Kanpur, saying the country offers unprecedented hope and avenues for them.

“Our fast-growing economy offers them huge scope. With their talent, education and IIT degree, each of them can be a game changer for India,” the President said.

While addressing the 51st annual convocation of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur, he said that their professional future may well lie in aerospace engineering, Artificial Intelligence, biomedical research, energy storage, smart grids, renewable energy, financial mathematics, precision manufacture or so many other fields.

In his address, the President highlighted the initiatives taken by the Central government and urged the students to contribute to such national missions.

“Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation or AMRUT, the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojna, Digital India, Make in India, Start-up India, and the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan are some of the major initiatives of the Central government”, he said.

Speaking on the occasion, the President said that the evolution of IIT Kanpur has mirrored scientific and technological education in independent India.

“The IIT Kanpur model forms the core of the engineering curriculum in premier institutions of the country,” he said, adding, “Way back in 1963, IIT Kanpur was a pioneer in offering programmes in computer science. Such achievements have been possible due to the commitment and dedication of several generations of faculty members and students.”

“It is necessary for scientific and research institutions such as IIT Kanpur to assume a larger responsibility in programme design, monitoring and implementation strategies for the renewal of Kanpur”, he further stated.

Addressing the young students, the President congratulated them for their success in JEE (Advanced) examination and expressed confidence that they will achieve their future goals with the same determination with which they have achieved this success.
