It is gratifying to be part of GGES’13 and sketching this message for the consideration by the organising and participating alumni of GKMCET as well as budding engineer entrepreneurs. I also thank the alumni for the space provided to express the views.
Alumni of every institution make major contribution to the institution more than any other constituent of the college / institution. They are the pillars for the decades / centuries of growth ahead in time. The complementary part is the assured personal growth to unscaled proportion as every alumnus is identified by the institution tag. The 14 batches of passed out GKMCET alumni, who are organizing this event should be near and dear to all those who are currently part of GKMCET.

The all pervading enthusiasm shown by professionally successful GKMCETians towards building a sense of entrepreneurship among the passing out students is highly appreciated and therefore their enthusiasm of GGES’13 is commendable. The confluence on Entrepreneurship and the Excellence thereof is not to be debated.
All self financing Engineering colleges affiliated to various institutions are witnessing the era of three decades of IT domination, which is presently tapering off. During this era the passed out students manning the needs of the IT industry have contributed immensely to the “Shining India”. These outstanding students migrated to this green pasture to pursue excellence leaving a side the core engineering area. Such a talent was not available to the societal turn around expected of Tamilnadu and India. The chronicle of academic excellence reveals missing pages of such graduates. As a result, the quality and standard of living in our villages have fallen behind the planned targets. The achievement was concentrated and centered around few cities only in which IT companies are situated.
My view is that emphasis in placement and career choice should be highly inclusive and identify the components of academic excellence needed to do so. The well placed alumni of this institution should allocate time and money for this yeomen service. I sincerely believe that the forthcoming alumni meet will focus on many of the important issues like the present one.
I wish this meet all success.
