IIT Alumni Centre, Bengaluru (IITACB) was founded in 2010 to bring together alumni and faculty from all the IITs into a cohesive community and work collaboratively on various programmes. IIT Alumni Centre also envisioned a networking facility with lounge, restaurant and recreation areas for IITians to visit for leisure and meetings.
Estimates of IITians in Bengaluru across batches and programmes vary between 15000-20000. Our opt-in database of Website Members already covers 10% of this number and our access to lists of alumni covers about 25% of the total population. We aim to cover atleast 50% of all IIT alumni in Bengaluru over the next few years.
Our goals are to conduct programmes for industry and government collaboration in partnership with the various IITs, plan and implement nation-building initiatives in partnership with other groups and institutions, help our alumni with their startups through mentoring and incubation, bring alumni together for networking and leisure with our events, and collectively form a community of IIT alumni in Bengaluru so that we can aspire and plan for larger initiatives together.
We have support from the Ministry of HRD, Government of India, Government of Karnataka and the various IITs in our initiatives.
We are inviting applications from IIT alumni and faculty with an interest in Bengaluru to join us as Centre Members. For those who still cannot make this decision, we invite you to join us as Website Members which enables us to send you updates and keep you abreast with our progress.
We have various ways that you can participate and contribute. Do join us at any of our events or send us an email and we will be glad to discuss with you.
