Prof Balaram talks on ranking of IITs and other Indian institutions

(An IIT Alumni Centre Exclusive Event)

Why your favourite IIT ranks so low? Or are you surprised how some IITs make it to these lists in the first place? Come listen to the secrets, straight from the horse's mouth!

Date: November 15, 2014 (Saturday)
Venue: Koramangala Club, Koramangala, Bengaluru
Schedule: 6:30 PM onwards

Dear IIT Alumnus,

Our November event in the monthly talk-cum-networking series (3rd Saturday
evenings) would feature Dr. Balaram P who recently retired as the director
of IISc. He is also an IIT alumnus from Kanpur. He would be raising the
somewhat sensitive but crucial topic of IIT Rankings.

Do you wonder why we generally rank poorly in international rankings? And
what is your view on making it better? Is it about all about research? Or is
there more to it - Faculty? Infrastructure? Broader set of disciplines like
a big university? Something else?

Come join us at Koramangala Club on Saturday Nov 15 evening to listen and
discuss these and any other perspective that you have on the subject,
directly with Dr Balaram who has seen all this up-close during his long

As usual, the event is free to IITACB members (including snacks, soft drinks and dinner). All others pay Rs 300.

Warm regards,
Governing Council: IIT Alumni Centre Bengaluru
