IIT Alumni Centre, Bengaluru (IITACB) is back with its monthly 3rd Saturday series. This time we will not only have some yummy food and inviting drinks, we will also have food for thought! Our president Prof Ashok Misra would be leading this evening’s theme: IIT in every state? A few seasoned experts are expected to confirm participation.
So what you think about the poll-promise of IIT in every state? Who made the promise? Do you think we are ready for it? What about state of existing IITs, especially the newer ones? Have we not struggled to get those going, especially in terms of attracting good faculty? Won’t it dilute an already struggling brand or would it make it even bigger and better?
Or is it a necessity given the rising needs of better education? And aren’t the newer IITs showing good signs, such as IIT Guwahati becoming the only Indian educational institute in the 2014 league table of '100 Under 50' institutions
