Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, July 2: IIT Roorkee has launched a Global Network of IIT Roorkee Alumni to establish an extensive connect with its large number of alumni spread all over the world. It will fulfill a longstanding need of the institute and its alumni for a comprehensive and accurate alumni database.
A spokesperson of the IIT has said that many alumni have been asking for a network that can help them search and connect with fellow alumni and also facilitate interfacing with the institute through a single window. The Global Network will seek to address this need also.
The Network will contribute in keeping alive the heritage and legacy of Thomason College of Civil Engineering to University of Roorkee and now IIT Roorkee. It would blend the old and new generations of alumni of this unique institute with a glorious history since 1847. The Global Network will be run by alumni volunteers,” said the spokesperson.
The spokesperson said that provisions will be built in the implementation of the network so as to ensure that privacy concerns of the members are fully taken care of. Further, the members will have the flexibility to subscribe and unsubscribe messages and services as per their wish. Special care will be taken to ensure security of the database. Membership of the network would offer many benefits.
Prof Ajit Chaturvedi Director IIT Roorkee said, “In this digital age, there is a paradigm shift in relation to social and professional networking. Information technology has raised expectations of alumni and students for a flat and efficient platform instead of a hierarchical and bureaucratic process. They want to connect seamlessly with each other and with the institute too.”
Mohinder L. Nayyar, a US-based alumnus of 1966 batch of IITR, who is a Fellow of American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), Distinguished Alumnus Awardee and one of the top donors of IIT Roorkee, said, “The Global Network of IIT Roorkee Alumni is a pioneering initiative. It would serve the need of our times and future. The present and future alumni will find it effective in establishing, strengthening, and enjoying continued bond with their alma mater. The potential benefits to members of this network add an attractive and fulfilling dimension.”
IIT Roorkee is an institute of national importance imparting higher education in engineering, sciences, management, architecture and planning, and humanities and social sciences. Since its establishment in 1847, the Institute has played a vital role in providing technical human resources and know-how to the country.
