Project Layout  | Project Detail  

This initiative is to establish an engagement with relevant stakeholders of the institute in order to ensure the success of other initiatives. These stakeholders include Government (both state and center); Academic & Research Institutions (both National and International); Industry (Direct and Indirect); Students and Faculty (both prospective,  current and past); Parents of students (both prospective and current); General Public.


Especially on our engagement with Alumni: The strength of the relationship between alumni and the Institute makes is possible to address the above requirements and more. Alumni, by virtue of their professional network, connect the industry to the Institute and help bridge the gap between them. Alumni are also known to have supported the Institute in becoming self-sustaining by creation of corpus, and raising funds to meet various needs of the Institute. All these above are examples where the alumni can support the Institute, and hence there is a need for a strategy for Global Alumni Outreach, given that the alumni are working all over the globe.
