‘Dream to become employers, rather than job seekers’


GUWAHATI, Jan 31: All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) chairman Prof. Anil D Sahasrabudhe urged the aspiring engineers and technocrats to dream for becoming employers than job seekers. Addressing students and teachers at a ceremony at the Girijanda Chowdhury Institute of Magement and Technology (GIMT) and Girijanda Chowdhury Institute of Pharmaceutical Science (GIPS) in the city on Tuesday, he appealed the budding talents and college authorities to turn the technical institutions into invention hubs.“If you look at America, all the companies have come from some university. In India also need to start a similar culture and our start-ups should compete with the likes of Microsoft and Google. We need to challenge the quality of education across the globe,” Sahasrabudhe said.

He said that it is the responsibility of the AICTE and the college authorities to ensure that 100 percent engineering students get employed after completion of the courses.

“The negative perception of the industry sector has on the quality of education in engineering has to be changed. Instead of seeking jobs in some company or other you can create jobs from the college itself,” Sahasrabudhe said emphasizing on starting entrepreneurship from the college campuses itself.
