The late Prof. Ayyar joined IIT Bombay in 1958 and was one of the Institute’s founding faculty members. He was well-known on campus for his stellar contributions to the field of structural engineering. He had a larger-than-life personality and was deeply admired by his students for his unique teaching style. As Dean of Academic Programs, he was also instrumental in introducing several far-reaching policies that positively impacted the Institute.
