Few IIT students opting for research: President



President Pranab Mukherjee on Saturday expressed concern over few IIT students opting for research, saying this can deprive the country of a talented workforce in the long term. “I understand that very few IIT graduates are pursuing specialised education leading to Ph.D. or any other higher degree. In the long term, this will deprive the country of the talented specialised technical personnel who are the most important assets in a knowledge economy,” Mr. Mukherjee said. He was speaking at the annual convocation of IIT-Delhi. —IANS
