While addressing the audience, Professor Anil D Sahasrabudhe said that the main aim of the higher education is not just about academic excellence, but an amalgamation of various co-curricular activities and academic curriculum for the holistic development of students.
He further said that education should be output based and not just input based which includes libraries, classroom teaching, good infrastructure and laboratories. The output-based education is very beneficial in the long-run for students as it primarily focuses on student achievements.
Apart from this, the students should have a social outlook and pay attention to the demands of the society as well. The institute should just not focus on academic education but incorporate skills such as teamwork and time management.
