The Maths and Statistics seminar touched a new summit of innovative excellence and it offered the students inspiration and urged them to be more attentive, determined, to learn from others and the students got together to witness a stunning explosion of brilliant ideas.
As remarked by Prof. S.S. Alam, “Knowledge comes from academics and the persuasion of that and collective endeavours from us, teachers, can help the students to strive for excellence. I really enjoyed the seminar and I think students should always judge their strength as well as their weakness and fix their goal. If you think high, you may reach horizontal and if you think horizontal, you may reach vertical and for that you have to flourish in academics.”
