Mangaluru, Feb 23: Research has become part of the academic activity and the quality has gained its priority and it is the need of the hour said Prof Subrahmanya Yadapadithaya of Mangalore University.
After inaugurating the ‘Anveshan’, Intercollegiate PG Students Research Conclave at Besant Evening College, Prof Yadapadithaya said, “Learning is a continuous process and the real learning takes place outside the class room. Students should develop the habit of regular reading and should be the cream in their discipline. They should always update their knowledge to sustain and lead in their profession. Students at the post graduate level should be involved in quality research to lead in the competitive world. Research publications should be free from plagiarism which is the need of the hour.” He appreciated the organisers of taking the need based programme which is very useful to the PG level of education.
