Mysuru, June 27, 2022 ( “Please share if you have any new thoughts or ideas with the ‘Career Hub,’ opined Prof. G. Hemanth Kumar, Vice-Chancellor, University of Mysore.
He inaugurated the ‘EUREKA-2022,’ a science fest, held at the Platinum Jubilee Auditorium in Yuvaraja College today.
In his address, Prof. G. Hemanth Kumar said, “Yuvaraja College is one of the best Colleges in Karnataka. Students who are studying in this college are lucky. Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wadiyar thought of starting an University in Mysore in 1914. Till then, a college was functioning by the Madras University. The University of Mysore came into existence in 1916. The Yuvaraja College has also provided education to thousands of students. Prof. Nanjudaiah was the first Vice-Chancellor of this University, and he who was followed by Bhajendrnath Peel. He was Swami Vivekananda’s classmate. It was he who started the Yuvaraja College.”
“There were not many colleges offering science courses in Mysuru those days. Only four colleges used to offer science courses, including the Yuvaraja College, Sharada Vilas, St. Philomena’s and JSS. The Yuvaraja College became autnomous in 2005. Presently four thousand students are studying here,” he added.
“Along with scoring good marks, the students should also develop a habit of generating new thoughts and ideas. The University of Mysore has established a career hub. Whatever thoughts or ideas you have, you can share it there. Think different in nature and research on it. Try to understand how you can research about your thoughts. About a thousand students pass out every year from the Yuvaraja College. I wish all of them would become good researchers and scientists. NEP has been introduced of late, which consists of interdisciplinary courses. It is indeed a very good development,” he explained.
In her address, Program Coordinator Dr. Rubi Selestina said, “the EUREKA science fest started in 2013. It is the brainchild of students of the college. It is completely there thought. The science fest, which started in a small way in the beginning, has grown into a big event today. It has helped the students to understand the in and out of science. EUREKA is a blend of science-arts-culture.”
College Principal Prof. B.N. Yashoada and others were present.
