Taking stern note of the fact that the Chandigarh College of Engineering and Technology (CCET) does not have its recruitment rules,the Governor,Punjab and UT Administrator Shivraj V Patil,who was there in the college on Monday to inaugurate the newly built block-B,said that he is surprised that the college is in existence for years and is being run on contractual staff and teachers on deputations.
He asked the UT Administration to frame the recruitment rules as soon as possible. In his address to the students,he motivated them and laid emphasis on knowledge of ethics,spirituality and leadership apart from the technical knowledge which the students of the college already possess. He applauded the efforts of the Engineering Department and Architecture Department of UT Administration for completion of the building within a short span of time.
He was accompanied by KK Sharma,adviser to the Administrator and VK Singh,finance secretary and Secretary,Technical Education along with other officers. The principal of CCET,Dr M S Gujral made a full round visit of the new building,surveying every bit of the unfolded new laboratories,lecture halls and Edu-sat rooms.
KK Sharma stressed on the fact that education must be made enjoyable. For that the students must be receptive and notice things around them and show their creativity by making suggestions for making innovations and improvements.
Patil planted few saplings in the campus giving a message to go green. Students showcased their technical projects to the Governor which had earlier brought laurels to the college at the national level.
