Leadership Lecture Series
Leadership Lecture Series




In 2011, we launched the “Leadership Lecture Series” featuring alumni. And in 2012 we had more than 20 alumni visit our campus to deliver a talk to our students, faculty and local alumni. It has been a great success with the students. We’d love to have you participate & deliver a talk. The topic preferably is one that would be relevant to the entire student population. It could be a technical talk as well; in the end, it’s your choice!

Alumni who are interested to give a talk or interact with IITM in any other way, do get in touch with K Suresh @ oaasuresh@iitm.ac.in.
