October 11, 2012

The recording of Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam's dialogue with SFU's grad students, on India's High-tech Transformation, is now available. Dr. Kalam is a scientist and a former President of India.

He also created speaking notes for the grad students, available on his website.

Approximately 100 grad students were able to attend this special event. Dr. Kalam was on campus to receive an honorary degree from Simon Fraser University — see recording of his Convocation Speech (starts at about 6 minutes in).

July 27 Update:
We are sorry to hear the news of Dr. Kalam's passing and send our condolences to his family and friends.
