K Rosaiah, Tamil Nadu Governor, inaugurated the the SCAD World School and Institute of Technology at Palladam. While addressing the event, he said that higher education in the country should be able to produce education that is of international standards. He stressed that higher education should create interest among students for innovation and research. Our education sector should encourage students to take up research. Education should be able to help in assimilating knowledge. It should also help in building competency, dynamism and the ability to face challenges. The youth of the country should shoulder the responsibility of taking the nation to greater heights.

According to R M Vasagam, chairman, National Design and Research Forum, the young graduates must strive for a balanced approach to usher in prosperity in the country. Science and technology is needed for sustained national development. Like green revolution and white revolution, which helped advancements in the agricultural sectors, the coming generations must usher in social and economic transformation of our country, he added. Further, the aim for India should be to become a developed country at the earliest. Though we have attained leading positions in some fields like the export of jewellery and garments, we have to raise the living standards of our people. Vasagam said that the Indian education system had also contributed in fields including space, agriculture, atomic energy and others. So our educated youth can provide their own contributions, he added.
