Mangaluru: The ring presentation ceremony is one of NITK Surathkal‘s distinctive traditions. History indicates that no other institution in India performs a similar function. NITK takes great pride in being a pioneer in ring presentation. During this event, each graduating student is given a silver ring with the NITK emblem and year of graduation etched on it. This ceremony is unique because the faculty members treat the students as guests, individually presenting the ring to each student and wishing them well in their future endeavours.

Prof. A.S. Adke, then-principal of KREC (Karnataka Regionally Engineering College), initiated the first ring presentation ceremony, and the tradition has persisted for over fifty years. The ring serves two purposes: it “marries” the student to his or her beloved Alma Mater and, through recognition of the ring, it unites KRECians and NITKians across the globe in tandem.

This year’s ring presentation was held on April 20, 2023, at the NITK Surathkal campus. The silver rings were awarded to 2639 students from the B.Tech, MTech, MCA, MBA, MSc, MTech Research, and PhD programmes. During the ceremony, the best outgoing students of the year in several categories received gold/silver medals, student prize funds, and certificates.

Kammaje Yajnanarayana, Managing Director of the Sona Group of Institutions in Bangalore, was the Chief Guest. Venkatesha Murthy, Founder and Chief Mentor of Youth for Seva, was the Guest of Honour. Prof. Prasad Krishna, Director (Additional Charge) of NITK, presided over the ceremony. The other dignitaries on stage included Ravindranath K., the Registrar; Prof. Shrikantha S. Rao, the Dean of Alumni Affairs and Institutional Relations; and the in-charge Dean of Students Welfare.
