The inauguration of the first batch of BTech programs of PES University was marked by a graceful function. Pro Chancellor, Dr Jawahar highlighted the vision shared by the staff and management of the university, the vision to provide substantially superior education. In his words, it is about a 2X learning experience, which is twice as effective as that provided in any other university.

The Chief Guest, Mr Naveen Tewari. CEO InMobi, shared his thoughts on education in the light of his own experience as a student that led to a successful entrepreneurial journey. He gently cautioned the students that from this day whatever they do is on their own and that will decide their future.

The elegant function started with a melodious invocation and candle lighting. Principal of PESIT Dr. K S Sridhar introduced the chief guest and dignitaries on the dais. Prof Jawahar in his inimitable style encapsulated the story of PES from the dream of a young boy to a reputed group of institutions. He touched upon how the spirit of perseverance, excellence and service guided the journey which has crossed important milestones. One of the milestones ahead according to him includes creating a 100 crore endowment fund for scholarships. He promised a unique learning experience at PESIT which is result of the single minded focus on students.
