Invitation to join 15th Global Meet, Silver & Golden Jubilee Celebrations on 7 & 8.1.17 at SAC, NITD PDF Print E-mail

Winter is here in all its pristine glory : suddenly we find our alumni members all over the world take time off from their busy professional schedules; reason – Global meet of NITDAA on January 08, 2017 at Institute campus. Friends, behold ! 1987 -91 batch is celebrating their Silver Jubilee on January 07, 2017 at Students’ Activity Centre, NIT Durgapur and we are also part of the celebrations.

Immediately, nostalgia envelops us, memories of the golden period of our life spent away from home in the company of room-mates and fellow students pervade our mind. Our heart returns to the age of twenty – something, when tension was still vague and unfamiliar; life was a roller – coaster of fun and joy.

Friends – let all of us celebrate the home-coming at our beloved alma mater on the occasion of our Global meet on Sunday, January 08, 2017, along with Golden Jubilee celebration of 1967 Graduating batch and make the programme a grand success. Please log on to nitdaa.org for details and confirm your presence.

A line of confirmation from your end by 02.01.2017 about your joining the Meet will be highly appreciated.

Wish all my NITDAA brothers and sisters and their family members a very happy and prosperous New Year 2017.

President, NITDAA Apex Committee

Re-launching of "Beyond the Walls" - a lecture series by distinguished Alumni members. PDF Print E-mail

Dear Friends,

Sub.: Re-launching of "Beyond the Walls" - a lecture series by distinguished Alumni members.

We are proud to inform all Alumni members of RECD/NITD that we have re-launched the lecture series by distinguished alumni members from Industry and academia – “ Beyond the Walls” on August 18, 2016 at D.M. Sen Hall, NIT Durgapur.

The first such lecture has been delivered by Prof. Kamanio Chattopadhyay, an alumnus of our beloved Institute, who received his Bachelors of Engineering Degree in Metallurgical Engineering from the then RECD in 1971. He is, among others, recipient of prestigious Shanti Swaroop Bhatnagar Award. He is currently attached with the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore.

Prof. Amalendu Bhushan Bhattacharyya, Chairman, BoG, NIT Durgapur has kindly presided over the function. He is very appreciative of the fact that NITDAA has re-launched the programme, which will greatly benefit the present students. He has emphasized on the fact that it should be taken as a beginning and we should try to build a long term relationship with Prof. Kamanio Chattopadhyay and also between IISc & NITD.

Sri Santi Ranjan Sarkar, President, NITDAA welcomed the delegates. He enlightened the participants about NITDAA, its Aims & Objectives, structure, activities, etc. He emphasized that NITDAA is always with its alumni members in distress, particularly in medical emergencies. Helping alumnus in changing jobs, relocation to cities are very common. While this is about helping alumni & students, another important aspect is helping the Institute grow. NITDAA has, therefore, decided to re-launch "Beyond the Walls" lecture series. Further, NITDAA, being part of the PAN NIT Alumni Forum, could gather information regarding developments & achievements of other NIT’s and is planning to help the Institute in various areas.

The topic selected by Kamanio-da was very interesting – both for his departmental students/ faculties as well as for audience from other branches :

 

In recent time a question is often asked? Why we Indian are not as innovative as our counterparts in

other developed countries.

 

He delved into the evolution of technology and a culture which incubate them. Sought to use history, which is a powerful source to find an answer. However, his personal experience could also provide equally compelling insights. In the first half of this talk he has explored the history of his profession of materials engineering (a compelling story with full of golden nuggets) to understand innovations and technological progress. He then elaborated the central role of the pursuit of individuals for excellence through success and failures. In the second half, his personal experience has been leveraged to answer the same question through a journey that is entwined with several breakthroughs of recent time like the discovery of Nobel-winning quasicrystal in the eighties or the recent breakthrough related to new materials for extreme environments.

 

All the students, faculties and other members present listened to the lecture with rapt attention and enjoyed the deliberations.

 

The faculty members and students of Metallurgy and Material Engineering have done a great job by organizing the programme so meticulously. They have also taken proper care of Prof Chattopadhyay during his stay at NITD.

We, Sri Simanta RayChaudhuri, founder Secretary & Past President and Sri Mrinal Kanti Pal, Secretary, NITDAA and the undersigned are also very happy to attend the programme  and see our year-long efforts to start the programme has been so well accepted by the students and faculties.

 

On behalf of NITD, Sri Santi Ranjan Sarkar presented a Plaque to Kamanio-da. Further, on my request to him to take some students as Intern under him, he has kindly consented to accept one Intern from NITD. This is required to be followed up by the Department.

We will continue with the lecture series and are planning the next lecture sometime in early September.  We are in touch with the NITD Authority for the next date.

 

Looking forward to the next programme.

 

Sabai bhalo thakben.

Santi Ranjan Sarkar
