A Shaastra State of Mind….

Dear Alumnus/ Alumna,

The annual tech-fest, Shaastra, is back, and it’s bigger & better than ever. Also, as the Director, Prof. Bhaskar Ramamurthi, sees it, it’s all about entrepreneurship. “We are building entrepreneurship thought at the Institute. We want students to look at entrepreneurship as a career option. There is a clear trend among a large section of students to become entrepreneurs than take up lucrative job offers. I don’t know the reason as to why this trend is happening. However, it is good for the country” he said.

A key driver in the growth of the entrepreneurial spirit surrounding Shaastra is the Center for Innovation (CFI), which continues to garner attention:

and the Center for Social Innovation & Entrepreneurship (CSIE) which is beginning to make an impact:

Research is not taking a back-seat either. The 3rd Edition of the IITM Research magazine, “Immerse” was released during Shaastra:
