President Pranab Mukherjee lauded the alumni and faculty of the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) for advancing research in science and technology.

Mukherjee visited IISc at its annual convocation recently during which 625 students were given degrees and 52 awarded medals for their academic performance.

He stated that alumni and faculty of IISc have played and continue to play a strong role in leading national science and technology institutions and in various advisory or administrative roles in the government.

Noting that IISc maintained its reputation of being a premier institute of higher education and research, he said its academic stature as the country's best university was confirmed by the National Institutional Rankings Framework.

 In a rather personal speech to graduating students and faculty of IISc, President said he was “deeply satisfied” that his last visit was to the institute that has made India proud.
