Alumni meet today

Around 200 former students — some of them belonging to the first batch of National Institute of Technology (NIT) way back in 1960 — will visit their alma mater on Saturday to walk down the memory lane and attend to a host of crucial activities.

For, the two-day alumni meet of the Adityapur-based tech college will start from Saturday, the highlight of the event being launch of a logo of NIT Alumni Association.

NIT spokesperson Rajiv Bhushan on Friday said that during the two-day event, alumni members would also interact with students and officials associated with the training and placement cell of the institute.

“The idea is to help the cell function in a more effective manner as it plays an important role in recruitment of students,” said Bhushan.

The alumni will also take stock of the endowment fund, which was created following a decision taken in last year’s NIT council meeting.

According to the decision, the Union HRD ministry that monitors the functioning of NITs will provide an equal contribution towards the endowment fund for creation of assets of the institute.

NIT director Rambabu Kodali will inaugurate the alumni meet.
