15th Annual Alumni Meet, IIT Kharagpur
12-14 January, 2018
We live our day to day lives oblivious to the beauty that surrounds us and by the time we do realise what exactly it is that we've been blessed with, it's generally too late. However, when the good old days call yet again, nostalgia surrounds us as we walk the hallowed boulevards of our youth. The Annual Alumni Meet brings to our alumni a chance to reconnect with their Alma Mater. It lets them relive the carefree days of their college lives as they get a chance to visit all the locations they once frequented.
The 14th Annual Alumni Meet was organised from 13th to 15th January 2017 at our Institute campus. This year the Golden Jubilee batch of 1967, the Ruby Jubilee batch of 1977 and the Silver Jubilee batch of 1992 were the special guests of honour. The Meet is now a major event anticipated by both the alumni and the students. As the years pass by and winds of change keep blowing, the Alumni Meet too shall keep evolving with the pace of time, hoping to bring to the alumni an experience that they may cherish all their lives.
