Bengaluru, May 25: The IEEE student branch of the school of information technology at St Joseph’s University was inaugurated on May 22.

Prof Gowda stressed that volunteering is key to success and provides technical advantages, while active involvement in IEEE activities offers mentorship from executives who support passionate members.

Fr Denzil Lobo, the dean of the school of information technology, SJU, in his presidential address, spoke about the evolving technological landscape and the critical role of IT graduates in shaping the future.

Addressing concerns about AI's impact on jobs, he emphasized the need for a diverse skill set including coding, communication, analytical thinking, and emotional intelligence.

The more the power of concentration, the more knowledge is acquired," encouraging students to pursue their passions with dedication.

Dr Sivakannan S, IEEE branch counsellor at SJU, welcomed the chief guest and other dignitaries, setting a positive tone for the event. Dr BG Prasanthi, head of the computer science department, introduced Prof Gowda, highlighting his contributions to engineering and IEEE.
