‘Convocation day for the School of Innovative Technologies and Engineering, UTM ‘

I was, immensely proud to be present at the 10th Annual Convocation Ceremony of the School of Innovative Technologies and Engineering of the University of Technology, Mauritius. Congratulations to the students for having successfully completed their academic studies at the university. They are now better equipped to achieve success in their chosen field.  I would here, like to share with them some inspiring words by the owner of Dell computers, Michael Dell: “Now it’s time for you to move on to what’s next.  You must not let anything deter you from taking those first steps.  Don’t spend so much time trying to choose the perfect opportunity, that you miss the right opportunity.  Recognize that there will be failures, and acknowledge that there will be obstacles.  But you will learn from your mistakes and the mistakes of others, for there is very little learning in success.”  I seize this opportunity to extend my appreciation to the staff of the University for their contribution in their success and also for putting in place a robust framework for producing quality professionals in the fields of Information Technology, Science, Engineering and Management.
