Hyderabad: The research excellence awards ceremony 2022 was conducted with IITH Fraternity & Alumni together on board in an online mode. These awards are given to our students who have excelled in their research in the academic year 2021-22. IITH alums set up awards to motivate our students to pursue research. Every year, one UG/PG/PhD student in the respective departments is awarded for excellence in research during their academic period.

"We thank our young alumni who have contributed individually & collectively to initiate the following research endowment awards. I am confident that this bond between Alums & Alma mater will deepen as we all grow together & deliver our best for humanity", said Prof B S Murty, Director, IITH

"It is indeed a privilege to be part of this important milestone for IITH. IITH is a new institute, but it is like an old institute with this event because any mature institute will be known mostly for its alums. Today is a day where our alumni are not only showing that IITH is a vibrant institute but also putting us in a league of the older IITs and giving more responsibilities to our shoulders", said Prof Saptarshi Majumdar, Dean (Academics), IITH

"Indeed, alumni are the brand creators and flag bearers of their Alma mater. IITH graduated their first batch in 2012 & this year is particularly special because this is the 10th year of our graduating batch. The journey has been short but very accomplishing, fulfilling and rewarding. It gives me immense pleasure and makes me very proud that we have constituted three awards and one scholarship because of our alumni's generous contributions", Dr Mudrika Khandelwal, Dean (Alumni Relations), IITH
