“As future engineers, you should always stay out of the comfort zone and dare to persevere and strive in becoming the best.”
“Campus life is going to be a new experience which differs totally from what you all have been exposed to during the Matriculation years as well as Diploma or Upper Six. Do embrace the approach positively in order to graduate on time,” she added.
