The Indian Institute of Technology-Delhi (IIT-Delhi) Sunday called upon
its alumni to help fund world-class faculty development and finance its
research students for international exposure, a statement said.

The
premier institution has proposed to set up an endowment pool for the
purpose and sought contributions from its alumni, it was announced at
the first-ever alumni day here.

"We want the alumni in the
industry to engage in developing a 21st century modern curriculum, in
sync with the dynamically changing professional landscape. It could
spell a new trend in high-end professional education in the country,"
said IIT-Delhi director R.K. Shevgaonkar.

"We require repositioning of our institute to make it world class and for that, the alumni is critical," he added.

Shevgaonkar
said the institute was committed to work on three critical areas,
including faculty, infrastructure development and funding to catapult
the institute into a new league.

The institute is also setting up
a centre for cyber security in Delhi and a science and technology park
at its Sonipat campus, he informed.

"Everything is online and
control is remote. It was felt that IIT-Delhi was the most suitable to
have a capacity building for cyber security in the country. The centre
which shall start in the next session shall also undertake cutting-edge
research in this field."
