Alumni Day at IISc on 17 December 2016

The Institute is pleased to invite all its alumni back to our beautiful campus to join the Alumni Day Celebrations on Saturday, the 17th of December 2016. This is going to be the first of what is being planned as an annual event.

The individual Departments will put together a program for the morning of these day-long celebrations; the afternoon will feature an Institute-wide event in the Satish Dhawan Auditorium.

This is the first announcement to alert our alumni to mark their calendars, and to include these Celebrations in their Bangalore visit plans. We will come back with more information (and a detailed program) in due course.

We request you to inform your fellow alumni about this event.

And, we look forward to your participation in the Alumni Day Celebrations!
