Researchers Reunion


“A trip to nostalgia now and then is good for the spirit.”

You are cordially invited to the IITM Researches Reunion. Join your fellow batchmates as we catch up, reminisce, and create new memories together! This is the first time we want to bring all researchers for a reunion from across all years of graduation. We invite all Ph.D., MS, M.Tech and Post-Docs who had the pleasure of doing research at IITM. This is a celebration of the bond we all have to IITM, that we are bonded by our spirit as seekers of truth, as toilers at the lab, our passion for science and research and most of all in celebration of the strong friendships we built there.

This will also be an opportunity to see the growth of IITM research, innovations, meet with current faculty and researchers and hear about their research pursuits.
