It has contributed immensely to the growth and development of our nation. It may be difficult to find any big project of nation building where the contribution of the graduates of this institute is not significant.”


“IIT Roorkee is fortunate to be one of the topmost destinations of choice for the brightest students of the country. Once they are here, they imbibe the core values of the Institute which helps them blossom their personality and aim to be engineers/managers/scientists par excellence, ready to compete at the global level. As the recent Valentine’s Day video made by IIT Roorkee students has demonstrated, the graduates of the institute are capable of unconventional thinking, and sitting in this pristine campus are capable of reaching out to the entire world.

In the past, students recruited from IIT Roorkee have proved to be valuable assets for the companies/ organisations they have joined. I am certain that our present batch of graduates would maintain the same level of high standards and prove themselves worthy of the companies/ organisations they will join. I wish the on-campus recruitment programme a great success and look forward to establishing mutually beneficial relationships with the recruiters of our graduates”, Prof Chaturvedi added.
