Message from Prof. Patra (Dean AA &IR): Building IIT Kharagpur for the 21st Century

Dear KGPians,
Prof. Amit Patra

The year 2008 has been both ‘challenging’ and heart wrenching, as we deal with the consequences of terrorist attacks especially the loss of KGP-ian Malayesh Banerjee (B. Arch, 2005/ Nehru Hall). On the other hand, we have also seen the election of the first African American as the President of USA, proving that democracy is alive and well, and change (for the better) is on the way.

Change is also taking place at IIT Kharagpur as we strive to transform our alma mater into a global leader in education and research and realize the vision of our founders. We are preparing for massive expansion to accommodate a growing student population, introducing new academic programs, and setting up new Schools and Centers of Excellence.
