March 7, 2018 IN APPRECIATION Of late it has been the clarion call of educationists and industrialists that engineering education must sped beyond the academic bounds prescribed by the AICTE and attention must be diverted by the students in acquiring skill to make their academic career relevant to meet the present-day needs of all-round industrial development. Manipal Academy of Higher Education has already taken steps to enshrine skill development in its graduating students and it is heartening that its interdisciplinary student team of MARS ROVER MANIPAL from Manipal Institute of Technology has made a mark in finding robotic solutions in exploring Mars and has achieved distinguished positions in the rover challenges continuously from 2016. Manipal academy of higher education is too happy to be a sponsor of this programed by the MIT student team and give them all the encouragement and support needed. I request philanthropic organizations to extend their support and encouragement to these dynamic and innovative students. Dr, H.S. Ballal PRO CHANCELLOR
