Convocation


Convocations mark a crucial turning point in life. They are a joyous celebration of everything that has been — the hard work, discipline, dedication, and determination of students. And an enthusiastic anticipation of everything that will be — the world of possibilities that await them!

Students stand at the cusp of change, of adulthood, of becoming the compassionate changemakers that society needs. Equipped with the learning, experiences, and memories of their time at the University, students prepare to carve their own independent paths to success. 

At the Ramaiah University of Applied Sciences, convocations are a gratifying acknowledgment of the efforts of students, faculty members, scholars, and staff, as we send out yet another batch of future leaders into the world. 

The day-long event brings together different faculties, students and teachers, as members of the RUAS family address the graduating students. Imminent personalities also grace the occasion as chief guests and guests of honour and partake in the celebrations.
