In my next LinkedIn posting, I shall be providing you with the URL link to and a request for your voluntary participation in an anonymous and confidential online survey. Through this survey, we hope to learn about what our more than 40,000 alumni have been doing and their impact in various areas. We propose to bench-mark the results from this survey against a similar PanIIT effort undertaken in 2008 in conjunction with the PanIIT Alumni Meet on campus, and use the immensely valuable inferences in our long-term planning efforts. This survey has been put together by Gopala Ganesh (B.Tech. 1968-1973, Mechanical Engineering, Ganga Hostel) by retracing the information contained in the 2008 PanIIT report.
Also, nominations are now being accepted for 2016 Distinguished Alumnus Awards. The last date for nominations is October 15, 2015.
