“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.Read more

IITMAANA Accomplishments in 2016
We carried forward our momentum from last year and began this year on a promising note by helping the victims of the Chennai Floods, an unfortunate event which took place in November 2015. Your spontaneous and enthusiastic response and contributions made a huge difference in the lives of the victims and also fostered a spirit of unity among the IITMAANA community.
The Bay Area chapter of IITMAANA held its 2016 Gajendra Circle event on Saturday, 14 May, 2016 in Campbell, CA.

The relaunch of Philadelphia chapter of IITMAANA that took place on 8th April 2016 at Devil’s Alley pub, in Philadelphia, brought some alumni buddies together and relished fond memories of our early days. This event was made possible with the leadership of Animesh Agarwal (Dual Degree, Biotechnology, class of 2009) currently a MBA Student in Wharton School, who took a lead role in organizing the event. The relaunch event was the revival of the chapter after about two decades of no activity, and is the first of many chapters that IITMAANA intends to revive and make active this year to help us organize and engage alumni in North America.Read more
