BIT Mangalore Inaugural

Home Minister Dr V S Acharya delivering the presidential address said that the state is a potential destination for professional courses. However, he said, "we still remain far behind with regard to economic infrastructure compared to developed countries." State government had reserved R 9,000 crore for education sector for the current academic year, he added.
Dr Acharya said that though there are 160 engineering colleges which offer degree in Civil Engineering stream in India, none of the institutes could produce another Sir Visveswaraiah so far. Civil engineering should be given more emphasis, since the development of the nation depends mainly on development of buildings, roads, bridges, dams and other infrastructure, he added.
