On Friday, 06.09.10, the students of class XII at Delhi Public School Patna got an opportunity to interact with the Assistant Professor Dr. Atul Rawat and Mr. Raman Kumar from UPES (University of Petroleum and Energy Studies-Dehradun).
They talked to the students about the university and its facilities. Firstly Dr. Atul informed by the need of the hour and how the students should be equipped and prepare themselves before they move on n their career ahead. He asked the students that while they are deciding about their college majors what they focus on. He also asked whether the path they are selecting, have they analyzed that what’s the potential of sustainability for a career in that path. So they need to decide wisely.
He focused on three terms API. Aà Adaptive, Pà Proactive and IàInnovative. He explained that while selecting your career, you should think that you should be relevant even after 7 -10 years from now. He said that in today’s era specializations, linguistics, proactive approach to learning new topics/ technology etc. are looked into as priorities for selection of candidates.
In today’s digital world, knowledge of Cyber security and awareness about Cyber Cells, E-FIR, Cyber Crimes etc. also plays an important role.
So students should not work with just the aim of passing some competitions and getting into any university. Mr. Raman introduced the university details to students. UPES is Asia’s first & only Energy & Core Sector University which was established in 2003. This university is known for its programs focused on energy & core sectors.
