21st Century learning is not just about learning knowledge but how to construct it and apply it to life. I am glad to see my Engineering College students construct and apply all they learn in the co and extra-curricular activities they participate in.
I believe that my Students and Faculty are like the missiles, and can sky rocket their aspirations, materialize them and become global citizens.
