Prime Minister Sushil Koirala said that the graduate students need to play important role in nation building. Addressing the 40th Convocation of Tribhuwan University, Prime Minister Koirala said that the nation needs the contribution of graduates.
Chancellor of the University Koirala presented the academic degree titles to the students including those attaining doctorate, Mphil, masters and diploma certificates.
A total of 7,938 students officially graduated from the 40th convocation ceremony of Tribhuvan University, the eldest and largest university of the country. The students who graduated today included those who passed their respective degree examinations between 2070 Ashad 1 to 2071 Jestha 16.
The total number of students who actually passed during the period from 60 constituent and 1,053 affiliate colleges across the country was 53,178 but only 7,938 students attended the convocation ceremony, according to Vice-chancellor of the University Prof Dr Hira Bahadur Maharjan.
Although, a large score of students received degrees of various levels from the TU every year, the state has failed to address their needs, which have been the matters of nationwide concerns these days.
Not only degree holders but the best performers of TU have voiced that the state should create an atmosphere in which they could easily utilize their skills.
