While awarding these students, the chief guest stated that you are some of the select students who have crossed so many hurdles to get here. The nation needs you. Pandit Nehru had great faith in technology. And he thought that somehow having an elite, such as you are, would transform the nation. And we needed that transformation. I entirely endorse Nehru’s vision that if there is a justification for the IITs, it has to be in terms of what you can do for the nation”.
“We need people like you to provide that extra edge that we need to be the nation that we aspire to be. For that, I have to say that I want you to not stop now and keep transforming.
It was also stated that the IIT system has a very high global brand equity; and among the IITs, IIT Delhi is ranked at the top. We have world-class faculty, who continue to get recognition from within India and abroad. There are leading research workers at IIT Delhi in various advanced research areas in the engineering sciences and others, ranging from high technology fields to pure sciences, and also social sciences.
