Class of B.E. 1990/B.Arch 1991 institutes InnoVision Award
March 3, 2017: Amidst a changing society, one needs to continuously innovate to stay relevant, which in turn, delivers concepts and things of the future. In order to encourage the spirit of innovation amongst the students of IIEST, Shibpur the Class of B.E. 1990/B.Arch 1991 instituted the InnoVision Award. The award will acknowledge the idea/concept and the exploration/execution coalescing into an innovative and visionary work. Such a work should be exciting by showing glimpses of a game-changing notion and at the same time, useful and responsive to the society at large.
An MOU was signed between the batch representatives and Prof Santanu Kumar Karmakar , Dean of Alumni Affairs and External Relations. As per the MOU, the batch will initially donate about Rs 13 lakh for two such perpetual awards per year to both the undergraduate and postgraduate students of the institute for demonstrated excellence in innovation. More such awards may be added in future.
IIEST, Shibpur congratulates the esteemed alumni of the batch, who have earlier instituted two more awards for the students through the Global Alumni Association- Excellence Award and Social Leadership Award- both of which have been running successfully for the last few years.
