‘Focus to be on resuming conventional teaching’

‘With great humility, I take over as the director of this institute. The institute has done exceedingly well in the past 13 years. Whether in research, academics, welfare, outreach, or global presence—all fields have been well taken care of. I acknowledge the able leadership and vision of my predecessors and would like to take it forward. I’m very happy to see the achievements of our alumni, students, members of the faculty and staff and would ensure that the conducive environment for the growth of the institute and its community is further enhanced. While the pandemic has robbed the world of opportunities, the institute has navigated itself well during these tough days. The focus will be on resuming the conventional teaching and learning process and research and development as early as possible and provide the students with a safe and informative environment. I sincerely hope that I’ll continue to get the support of the local administration, academia, R&D institutions, industries, media and Indore city’ — Prof Suhas S Joshi, director, IIT-Indore
