An engineer has to adapt to the latest developments and think of continuous betterment. That is innovation. Feather pen, telegram, cheque book etc. are things of yesteryears. Instead, ballpen, SMS, ATM and other new things have taken over. Forget a computer; even calculators were not there when I graduated in Engineering. We used a scale-like, twelve inches by two inches, non-electric device called ‘Slide Rule’ to carry out all those lengthy and complicated calculations. No button, no display; it had a plastic body that required both hands for its operation.
And today, a computer is a child’s play. The world of information is on his lap, on his desk. What a glorious changeover! He has only to click the right option to script his success.
However, every success story follows certain ethics. Yours can’t be otherwise. You have to devote fully to studies; be regular in attendance, confident of what you attempt to do and honest in approach to life. It’s foolish to fall short of attendance at the end of a semester. You are here to attend your classes, listen to your teachers, learn your lessons and shine in glory in exchange of the best of education that we promise you to provide with.
Let’s vow not to deviate from the goal. All will be well then.
Best of Luck.
