to Shri Ram College of Engineering & Management.
A hearty welcome to one and all.
The first decade
of the 21st century is a time of unprecedented change
for India. While Indian Industry confronts the challenges
and opportunities of globalization and liberalization,
the nation is faced with the imperative of rapid and
sustained economic growth. These features of the economic
and social context resonate strongly with the mission
of the Shri Ram College of Engineering & Management,
which is to create a cadre of professionals who are
able to manage business activities in a dynamically
changing environment where technology and adaptability
is a key determinant of success. Adaptability because
it is not hard to learn more. What’s hard is to unlearn
when you discover yourself wrong.
We believe, the
illiterate of the 21st century will not be the one who
can not read and write, but the one who can not learn,
unlearn, and relearn.
With this vision
in mind, more than creating an environment where pupils
can learn, we want to nurture an environment where pupils
can learn to imagine because learning is what has been
done. Imagination is what can be done. Learning leads
to understanding. Imagination leads to innovation. Imagination
is the key to the future, as it has been since the times
of Archimedes and Newton to present day Technology Giants
like Google and Apple. So we don’t want the students
to graduate as mere engineers, we want to Inspire them
to graduate as dreamers because dreamers are the actual
human resource or as we like to call it human resource
to create those human resources, which through their
business acumen and human sensitivity shall add value
to the ongoing attempts at pushing technology and creating
As envisaged by
Tagore, providing an enabling culture to the participants
to learn and grow fearlessly and aim for perfection,
the institute wishes to inculcate values of personal
excellence and concern for others thus imbibing egalitarian
values which would then help the large society to build
and manage ecologically responsible organizations.
It is my
sincere hope that students of SRCEM shall bring pride
to the Institute and the Country.
