It gives me immense pleasure to welcome you all at IIT Patna. This year is particularly important for this institute for two reasons: (a) three batches of B.Tech. students and first batch of M.Tech students have passed out by recording satisfactory performance at the placement front and (b) the institute is expanding further this year with the induction of three new M.Tech program in conventional and three centres of excellence (Centres of Excellence in Energy and Environment/Strategic Materials/ Systems Engineering) in interdisciplinary areas of greater relevance today. The total academic program running currently includes five streams at B.Tech and eight streams at M.Tech levels, in addition to Ph.D program in all the existing departments and centres.
