From Dean’s

Dear Alumnus:

Greetings from IIT Bombay. I trust that you and your family are doing well.

I want to take this opportunity to share the exciting news that IIT Bombay has jumped 18 places from its position in 2022, and has been ranked first in India and 47th globally in Engineering and Technology domain in the QS World University Rankings by Subject for 2023. Please look for a longer write-up on the rankings in the newsletter. I must gratefully acknowledge all of your tremendous support that we have received over the years across various strategic initiatives, that have helped us grow and achieve excellence across several facets of teaching, research, and translation, and create the impact that has helped us leapfrog by 18 places (since 2022).

The Institute hosted the 2023 edition of FAN-DAM in India in Chennai between March 31 – April 2, 2023. Organized after 4 years in India, this event brought several of our accomplished alumni serving in the industry and academia together with IITB senior administration and faculty, to deliberate on several strategic matters related to both Institute growth as well as research forays.

Moving on to the several other important events and activities that took place at the Institute:

The Institute celebrated its Foundation Day on March 10. Please look for a detailed write-up on the celebrations and the various awards that were given to our faculty and alumni members in the News section of the newsletter. Please join me in congratulating the awardees that were felicitated during the event. The senior administration from IIT Bombay led by Director Prof. Subhasis Chaudhari visited Australia (Sydney and Melbourne) and Singapore to connect with our alumni settled there. It is always a pleasure to reconnect with our alumni who are settled overseas. While distance may separate us, at our core, we are all IITBians and will always be. It is a bond that unites us forever. Please look for a detailed Special Report and images on our Alumni Connect event in the newsletter.

With great humility and admiration, I would like to spotlight a young woman whom we have profiled this month, Dr. Savitri Gupta who overcame several odds to have the distinction of being the first blind student who graduated from IIT Bombay with a Ph.D. Please look for her extraordinary story filled with trials and tribulations that culminated in her getting her Doctorate and now working in Axis Bank, in the Student Success story section of the newsletter.

Please join me in commending the excellent work done by our IITB professors who continue to bring accolades to themselves and the Institute. Please look for more details under Faculty Accolades in the News section of the newsletter.

We also have all of our other regular articles including Faculty Profile, Chair Professorships, Alumni News, Institute Highlights, Upcoming Events, and more.

Once again, I want to thank you for your consistent support and generosity to your alma mater and trust that you will continue the same in the future, as well. Your spirited involvement has contributed immensely to the Institute’s advancement and we are immensely grateful for the same.

We are eager to see you and hope you will come by and visit us on campus soon.
