Aligarh, May 21, 2019: Mangalayatan University organized its 7th convocation on Sunday, May 19 on its campus. During the ceremony, 742 students received their degrees. Out of which, 35 students were awarded gold medals and 41 students received silver medals. 3 Ph.D. students also received their degrees during the event.
The chief guest of the event was Dr. Vinay Sahasrabuddhe, a Rajya Sabha member and Indian Cultural Relations Council President (ICCR). There were discussions on the changes that could happen for the betterment of the young generation. Dr. Buddhe gave his insights on the same. He said “India is facing various challenges in the sector of higher education and remains indecisive. People have turned education in a source of living. Due to which millions of graduates are still unable to understand the depth of their subjects.”
Political thinker Mr. Buddhe also said that “Mangalayatan University is not bound to private universities or governmental policies. It is an independent institution and can improve the deteriorated condition of the education sector. There is only a need to start a course which will require the use of experimentation and research. The students will become efficient this way. Education is not only theoretical knowledge, but we should develop our skills in a way which not only provide employment but also pays well.”
