Luciknow: Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam Technical University (AKTU) has always been known for better use of technology in education. Keeping up its efforts to not just transform education but provide best facilities, it has also made its Atal Bihari Vajpayee multi-purpose auditorium state-of-the-art. Its retractable chairs are using a one of a kind US technology. Preparations for the convocation on January 16 in the university have been on in full swing. The multi-purpose hall has been spruced up. This time due to Corona infection in a hall of two thousand capacity, only about 500 people will attend the convocation.
The number of retractable chairs is 1000. When it opens completely, AKTU is flashed in English. It has been developed in a way that it can aid fire security. As per the requirement, it can be assembled and moved back and forth. When there is no program, these chairs are assembled and the hall is used for indoor games. The Awadh Shilpgram in Banaras has about 500 chairs, but it is a larger setup. 130 students have been registered in AKTU for medal holders who attend the convocation. On Tuesday, Vice Chancellor Prof. Vinay Kumar Pathak also reviewed the preparations.
