IIT Bombay alumnus, Mr. Rabiz N. Foda, has been instrumental in setting up several institutional agreements between the Institute and Canadian Universities. In particular, IIT Bombay and the University of Toronto have an ongoing student exchange program. Exchange students from IIT Bombay have a great opportunity to learn, mature, and get enriched due to their exposure to different research environments.
Recently, Mr. Harish Vasudevaraddi Mekali, a Ph.D. student in Electrical Engineering Department from IIT Bombay met with His Excellency David Johnston (former Governor General of Canada) during a book release ceremony in Toronto. Under the exchange program, Harish was mentored by Prof. Jorg Liebeherr at the University of Toronto.
Featured below are some pictures from the book release event and other occasions featuring His Excellency David Johnston, Mr. Rabiz Foda, Prof. Jorg Liebeherr and his wife Prof. Almut Burchard, and Mr. Harish Mekali.
IIT Bombay is delighted at the successful collaborations between the Institute and its Canadian counterparts and is hopeful for more such partnerships in the future.
