For this purpose remote centres of IIT Bombay, IIT Kharagpur and IIT Madras are established within the University for online trainings and lectures conducted by IIT Faculties through ICT means.

It is good to adopt scientific approaches of west to solve the problems and for development, but we should not under estimate our own Indian way of thinking and indigenous philosophy of life which lays emphasis on “वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम्” and well being of every individual, i.e., “सर्वजन हिताय, सर्वजन सुखाय”. We must remain deeply connected to our roots and ethical bindings. This will help you to succeed in life not only academically but also as a good human being and a responsible citizen of country.

As we all know Science & Engineering can’t be separated from society , culture and human behavior, but these two are the key drivers of innovation and human development. So, Being a Science & Technology University, it is our major responsibility to set the standards of highest professional levels with a deep concern for ethical behavior and social development.

Today at a global level we can sense that the world is passing through various crisis of moral values, relentless exploitation of natural resources, climate change, etc. All these problems pose a threat to the human race, putting a serious doubt on our survival. You are problem solvers, organizers and innovators, so think about these challenges and devise technological/scientific solution to shape the society to sustain us for the future.

The ambitious schemes, viz. “Swachh Bharat”, “Digital India ” , “Make in India” and “Quality Education to All” are also envisaged by Hon’ble Prime Minister attain again our ancient glory and to play the role of “विश्व गुरु” in 21st century. Keep all these at the center of your thoughts rather than at the periphery of your vision. We see you all as a vital partner in the India’s quest for progress and prosperity.

I wish you all the best for a successful career and life.
