Alumni Reception at NMD-ATM 2015

Thanks to our alumna Dr. Dheepa Srinivasan’s initiative, we all had a great Alumni Reception at this year’s NMD-ATM at Coimbatore on the 15th of November 2015. This is the third year in a row for this event, and it’s safe to say that it has become a tradition!

It was absolutely wonderful that quite a few of our current students could join us at this year’s Alumni Reception.

Here is a group photograph from the event.

Next year’s NMD-ATM will be held in Kanpur. We look forward to yet another alumni gathering there.
