IIT Kharagpur Celebrates 58th Annual Convocation

Posted by:

The Fifty-Eighth Annual Convocation of the IIT Kharagpur institute was held on Saturday, 15th September 2012. All those candidates graduating in the session 2011-12 were eligible to be awarded the degrees at the Convocation wither in person or in absentia.

The President, Pranab Mukherjee had addressed the convocation at IIT Kharagpur in West Bengal. He said "I am happy to join you on this occasion of the 58th Convocation of IIT=Kharagpur- in a Diamond Jubilee year of this proud institution. I recall my visit here in 2011 when the celebrations were launched."

From the time of its inspection, IIT Kharagpur has been infused with a pioneering spirit. Perhaps this is due to it being housed in a building hallowed by some of India's great freedom fighters. The original location of this institute is the very spot where two great soldiers of the freedom movement- Santosh Kumar Mitra and Tarakeswar Sengupta had served their sentence.

"According to the records, in 1948, a committee had been set up by Sir Jogendra Singh, a member of the Viceroy Executive Council in order to consider setting up higher Technical Institutions for post war industrial development in India. Since then, this institution has grown steadily in prestige and accomplishment - to become the incubator, then model for modern technologist education in India. The IIT system, which started from here, is a symbol of the progress and success of India in the field of Technology."
