IIT Madras Faculties Doing Road Shows

Professors of IIT Madras are going on road shows around the nation to promote the institute's research programmes. The proposal is being taken this year to entice the brightest minds in other leading higher educational institutions. Three or four faculty members from every department have been visiting other centrally-funded organizations like the National Institutes of Technology, state-funded institutions and private self-financing colleges and universities as well. "We would like to boost the quality and quantity of our PhD intake," said IIT-Madras director Bhaskar Ramamurthy. The institutions are preferred based on student intake in the past. Around 10 visits were intended, and the interactions will finish by October 20, before the PhD application deadline. The institute enrolls research scholars two times a year - once in June and another in November or December. Ramamurthy said that the faculty members might go on a similar round of visits to institutions next April, forward of the June intake. The faculty in groups of three or four have been providing presentations on the teaching and research capabilities of the different departments, and talking about the kind of expertise IIT-Madras has to offer, funding patterns and other opportunities for higher education. IIT-Madras has risen with several initiatives to illustrate more research applications with superior quality this year. Research scholars have been given the choice of undertaking inter-disciplinary research spanning more than one section. The initiatives are in use to amplify the number of PhDs passing out from the IITs from the modern 3,000 to 10,000 a year, as per the Kakodkar Committee's recommendations.
