The Alumni Cell of IIT Palakkad was founded in July, 2019, when the first batch of students graduated, the cell was inaugurated by Prof. Nagarajan, IIT Madras. It is heartwarming to know that, with such a small strength, our alumni are already spread across the globe in various capacities. Currently, the Alumni Cell is made of five teams which are managed by seven student office-bearers.
The Alumni Cell is committed to the enhancement of institute-alumni relations and provide a platform for student-alumni networking. Towards this, various activities and initiatives are being undertaken. A newsletter titled footprints is published regularly for the current student community to be in touch with the alumni and vice versa. The Alumni Cell has also instituted an annual “Undergraduate Research and Innovation” award to recognize and reward undergraduate students of their achievements in research and/or entrepreneurial endeavours.
