Alumni are brand ambassadors of an institution and they can play a significant role not only by extending financial support to their Alma mater in development projects but also by helping new pass outs to find better career opportunities and by organizing training programmes for them”, said Professor Tariq Mansoor, Vice Chancellor of Aligarh Muslim University while at the inaugural function of Alumni Meet organized by the University Polytechnic.
Prof Mansoor said that AMU Alumni of all categories are bringing laurels to the University from all over the world, working there as brand ambassadors of the institution and carving a niche for themselves in different walks of life.
Vice Chancellor said that the University Polytechnic is considered one of the best polytechnics in the country and its students have proved their mettle while working in challenging positions.

The Vice Chancellor also released a souvenir of the Meet.
