The new entrants and present students introduced themselves briefly. Prof A. Mahajan gave an overview of the IEOR interdisciplinary programme. Prof V. Kavitha, faculty advisor for M.Tech students, and Prof V. Narayanan, faculty advisor for PhD students, talked about the course work and other requirements for the M.Tech and PhD students respectively. All Faculty members then introduced themselves and gave a brief talk about their respective subjects being covered in this semester.
A short break for tea was taken and was then followed by an informal interaction between the new students and the IEORSA and ISCP (Institute Students Companion Programme) teams. Then the senior students explained the semester registration process and provided assistance for the same.
We welcome all the new entrants to the IEOR family and wish them luck.
