About IIT-Kanpur

"''When I came to Kanpur first to join as the Director of the Institute, almost everybody I met in Kanpur asked me..if I had wanted to commit professional suicide, I did not at all worry about this because I was no longer myself but an instrument of a historical process" (Extracts from the convocation address given by Dr. P.K. Kelkar on 1981 May 17). Dr. P. K. Kelkar did the registration of IITK Society on 14th December, 1959.

Soon after the five IITs were set up, Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru had realized that to keep pace with the ever changing world of science and technology, it is necessary to collaborate closely with the outside world. The Kanpur Indo-American Programme (1962-1972) at IIT-Kanpur was a stride in this direction. During the period 1962-72, the Institute received technical assistance under KIAP from a consortium of nine leading Institutions of USA. ...........

Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur is one of the premier institutions established by the Government of India. The aim of the Institute is to provide meaningful education, to conduct original research of the highest standard and to provide leadership in technological innovation for the industrial growth of the country.........."''

About NIT Srinagar

National Institute of Technology Srinagar: The National Institute of Technology, Srinagar (NIT), one of the leading institutes in north of the country, was established in 1960 and in 2004, it had the unique distinction of becoming an Institute of National Importance under the NIT Act under the auspices of Ministry of Human Resources Development, Govt. of India. Being residential, the campus located on the western bank of the Dal Lake near the famous Hazratbal Shrine, provides comfortable accommodation to all faculty and students. Students from all over the country epitomize a healthy amalgamation of different cultures, religions and languages on the campus and present a classical example of a mini cultural India.

The institute has signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with various national and international academies, professional and research institutes as well as industry to augment the learning process. These ties are a means for our students to gain valuable and relevant knowledge and experience, providing them with the building blocks for a successful future career besides providing international platform for interaction and exchange of ideas .

Department of Physics: The prestigious technical institute has ten departments which cater six postgraduate and ten undergraduate programmes besides offering Ph.D. degree in all Engineering and Science disciplines. Since its inception, the Department of Physics is offering the General Physics courses Physics I and Physics II for all branches of B.Tech. students during first and second semesters respectively. In addition, the department offers several electives to various branches. The Department has full-fledged laboratories for research and offers Ph.D./M.Phil. programmes in Solid state physics, Materials science, Nanotechnology, Nuclear physics, Space physics, and in renewable energy sectors. Presently, the department has six faculty members and the faculty has developed research collaborations with several premier institutions across the globe. In order to inculcate the academic culture, the department regularly organizes lecture/quiz competitions and invited talks by the eminent scientists. So far the department has produced maximum M.Phil. and Ph.D. scholars in the Institutes. Unending efforts are being made by the department to develop the well equipped research laboratories to cater the needs of masters programme which is likely to be approved. In this programme, we have offered intrinsically challenging and didactically inspiring courses.

            Small but academically sound galaxy of eminent faculty having specializations in thrust areas are actively engaged in research and other academic assignments including teaching to B.Tech students. Dozens of students pursuing Ph.D under their guidance have collaborations with reputed laboratories across the globe. The faculty has always brought laurels to the institute. However, the Institute overall has witnessed a remarkable growth in all sectors under the able guidance of our Director Prof. Rajat Gupta, from the last three years.
