The Convocation Ceremony of Tezpur University will be held tomorrow; Rajnath Singh will be the Chief Guest

The 21st Convocation of Tezpur University will be held on December 31st 2023, to confer Degrees and Diplomas upon the candidates who have successfully completed their prescribed programmes.

Rajnath Singh, the Defence Minister will be in Tezpur on 31st December, Sunday as the Chief Guest for the convocation.

Apart from the Defence Minister the Corps Commander of Gajraj Corps and several civil and military dignitaries will attend the event.

Apart from its academic routine the University is also involved in training the Indian Army personnel in Chinese Language. In April this year the University signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Headquarter 4 Corps, (HQ 4 Corps signed the MoU on behalf of Indian Army) to offer army personnel a basic course in Chinese language to develop the four essential language skills, viz. listening, speaking, reading and writing of intermediate level. The University is also mulling to start Department of Defence Studies and in this regard, the University’s Academic Council and Board of Management (highest executive body of the University) has already ratified the decision.

“There is another project, which is in pipeline. The University in collaboration with Defence forces is planning to study geospatial research and strategic mapping in Indo-China border areas. We believe that Tezpur University has a role to play in improving India’s defence preparedness and deepen the relationship between the Indian Army and academia”, Prof. Shambhu Nath Singh, Vice Chancellor, Tezpur University informed.

“The exercise shall give us enough data on people living in these border areas to academically counter any unfounded claims made by China”, Prof. Singh further elaborated.

A total number of 1355 students will be conferred upon Degrees and Diplomas during the convocation.
