Lt Governor Manoj Sinha recently while laying foundation stone for 700-bedded Mega Boys Hostel of NIT Srinagar said that he has a vision for Jammu and Kashmir to become the skill capital of the country.
He said that Academia-Industry collaboration is crucial for research, innovation & building human capital for economic growth. There is a need for Technical Institutes to experiment with new-age engineering technologies for the benefit of society, transforming the lives of people. For this purpose not only the government but also the students especially those who are in the institutes like NIT will have to promote scientific temper among engineering students so that they can help in rebuilding.
The mega project of the hostel will enhance the sustainable campus infrastructure of one of the premier Technical Institutes in Northern India.
Speaking on the occasion, he pointed out fast-changing market dynamics and new innovations taking place globally and the efforts being taken by the UT Government to amplify the exponential technologies ecosystem to meet the modern-day requirements.
With our technical education infrastructure, rigorous career programs for high-demand technology in the post-Covid world, we are working on an ambitious plan to make J&K UT the skill capital of the country, is the message given by LG to the student community.
