SRM Vadapalani was where they had the foundation academically which helped them grow in life, he said. Other students too had similar viewpoints to share about their alma mater which gave them the knowledge that helped them stand with pride in their lives.

Programme also brought in nostalgia along with an element of entertainment where former students danced to the tune of popular film songs. Welcoming the gathering, Dean of CET Vadapalani Dr C V Jayakumar said the institution began in a humble manner in 2009 with about 100 students.

Steadfast progress was seen for the institution since then, currently, the institution has an alumni strength of more 3000 who have proved their mettle at all corners of the world, said Jayakumar.
