SRM University-AP is elated to bring forward its alumni from many walks of life to share their experiences in an exclusive session on October 23, 2021, Saturday from 5 pm IST onwards in its Alumni Connect Programme.

This is an opportunity for all SRM University-AP students to get insights from the real-life experience of their alumni. The alumni will help the current students to have a clearer view of their future and the pathways available to them. The students can choose to emulate their inspirations or choose an entirely unexplored avenue for themselves.

Dr P Sathyanarayanan, President, SRM University-AP will inaugurate this event and deliver the inaugural address to motivate both the current students and the alumni. The inaugural address will be followed by the message from Prof V S Rao, Vice-Chancellor, SRM University-AP. The event will move forward with another message by Prof D Narayana Rao, Pro-Vice-Chancellor, SRM University-AP. After the addresses by the esteemed dignitaries, the Alumni Yearbook-2021 would be launched by the President in the presence of the Vice-Chancellor and the Pro-Vice-Chancellor.

The event will be further advanced with talks given by the Alumni. Their journey will help the students understand the framework of professional possibilities better. Students will be able to plan their co-curricular skills more accurately during their time in the University to do better in the placement drive to land their dream jobs in their dream companies with a sought-after salary.

Those who are interested in pursuing higher education in world-renowned Universities will learn about the procedures and aids that were availed by our alumni during their turns. This will help them plan their education responsibly.

Moreover, those who dream to be entrepreneurs in future would benefit from the know-hows of their predecessors about the challenges both expected and unexpected and how their alumni were able to overcome those. The importance of ‘networking with other entrepreneurs and gaining knowledge from their perspectives’ cannot be overstated for aspiring businessmen.

At the end of the event, Ms Revathi B, Assistant Director, Student Affairs would facilitate the stage for interaction between the current and the former students.
