Minister Higher Education and Tribal Affairs, Temjen Imna Along urged students to be creators of jobs and not just mere job seekers.

He was speaking as the chief guest during the Kohima Science College Jotsoma (KSCJ) first convocation ceremony at the college auditorium, here, Tuesday. Along urged students to be entrepreneurs, innovators and inventors and said that graduates were human capital.

He exhorted that they were indispensable assets of the state, nation and of the world and encouraged them to be a part of the capital building process of the state and of the country.

The minister said after two and three years of studies, the graduates had developed essential professional attributes which were part of learning outcomes for their curriculum.

Encouraging them to continue sharpening these attributes and use them in their short and long-term goals, Along said that knowledge was emerging as a very important capital.

Since knowledge was directly or indirectly linked to the economy, he said that it was connected to power and that the human capital and sellable knowledge had powerful economies as their economies were driven by knowledge.

Delivering a report, KSCJ principal, Dr. Lily Sema informed on the first convocation 349 graduating students and 32 students would receive gold medals.

She said KSCJ was established in 1961 with a vision “to develop the college into a research-driven hub of national and international repute, focusing on science education as the central mission”.

The principal said KSCJ was now 60 years old and in the last six decades, the college had produced luminaries of alumni who were scientists, academicians, technocrats, bureaucrats, politicians and other responsible men and women of the state, the country and the world.

Dean, KSCJ initiated the presentation of candidates while the principal conferred the degree. COE, KSCJ also presented awards of medals to the candidates.
