IIT Roorkee recently launched a plethora of programs to address issues of local and national importance in celebration of its magnificent 175th year of establishment.
The institute plans to collaborate with many HEls in and around Roorkee to improve its research capabilities. Aside from developing research and innovation, the programs will also open the door to entrepreneurship and commercialization.
We propose to form a collaboration with five academic institutions in Uttrakhand to guide them in developing their research ability as part of the effort. Moreover, we will award Ph.D. scholarships to faculty members at universities within a 200-mile radius of IIT Roorkee as part of a separate initiative.
Every year, we will give students up to 25 BTech/UG internships as part of the ITR Spark initiative. For the next two months, these students would receive a stipend of Rs 10,000, “Arun Kumar, the chair of the IIT Roorkee’s 175th-anniversary celebration committee, states thus.
Ajit K Chaturvedi, director of IIT Roorkee, referred to the research program as an “incentive scheme.” “Professionals who were unable to pursue a Ph.D. due to a lack of time and resources are now eligible for the program. An incentive of Rs 15,000 a month would be given to selected applicants. The university is not loosening the requirements for admission or lowering the bar for those who meet them. It is merely a way to encourage those who wish to pursue a Ph.D.”
The internship program, he said, was essential. “We started the Spark program four years ago, which allowed students from all over India to work for two months during the summer. More and more people applied to the program as it became more and more competitive. As a result, we have added 25 more spots to our internship program.”
Students from IIT Roorkee, located in the same state like Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, and Punjab, have also participated in the initiatives. School pupils interested in being mentored at lIT Roorkee will visit the college as part of this program.
According to the selection criteria, 4-6 children from different schools will be selected and given an institute tour. They will learn about the 3D printing lab, the tinkering lab, and the supercomputer. In addition, these pupils will visit several clubs and institutes, such as racing, robotics, and drone ones. To wrap things up, students will have a chance to meet and greet their professors and the dean of the school at the end of the session, “Manoranjan Parida, IT Roorkee’s deputy director, explains.
Speaking on employment creation, he says: “Active industrial partnership is always vital since these industries use the ideas and creation of laboratories of the brilliant minds to commercialize them.”
