Naming Opportunities

Build a legacy:

Alumni can honor the legacy of their loved ones or to make a mark for themselves in their alma mater is by immortalizing their name by naming a laboratory, hostel wing or a lecture hall. This will positively impact the lives of thousands of students, staff and faculty who call the Institute home.

State-of-the-art facilities like the P.C Saxena Auditorium or the Desai Sethi School of Entrepreneurship have been funded by people to honor the legacy of their loved ones. These names are now immortal in the collective memory of everyone connected with the Institute.

Your own name or that of someone close to you could be one of those names forever immortalized.
