The alumni of BIT-Sindri from across the globe who congregated at their alma mater for an international symposium on “5G & Beyond for Rural Upliftment”, put focus on more research, innovation and entrepreneurship for the development of the institute.

On the sidelines of the concluding session of the two-day symposium organised by BIT-Sindri in association with IIT(ISM), Ramji Prasad, a 1964-1968 batch alumnus of BTech (telecommunication engineering) and founder president of Centre for Tele Infrastructure (CTIF) Global Capsule, said: “Ours (BIT-Sindri) was one of the best institutes of the country, better than many IITs due to the quality of teaching, faculty and state-of-the-art infrastructure.”

Arriving here from Denmark to participate in the symposium with other members of the CTIF, Prasad said: “We feel our alma mater has potential, which needs to be harnessed further with research into new-age technologies and industrial problems.”

Arunaditya Sahay, from the 1962-1966 batch of mechanical engineering, and the dean of research and professor of strategic management at Birla Institute of Management Technology, Gurgaon, said: “When I visited our alma mater in the early ’90s I found its infrastructure in a complete shambles but things have changed in the past four-five years with new director Dharmendra Kumar Singh taking charge and carrying out exemplary work in infrastructure development.” He also lauded the institute’s signing of a memorandum of understanding with Aarhus University of Denmark in 2017 for academic collaborations.
