One of the finest contributions of independent India was the establishment of revered academic institutions across the country of the likes and class & repute of the Indian Institute of Management and Indian Institute of Technology. Today when the country looks up to virtues like innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship, then one looks around with a sense of relief for one of the big reasons for that satisfaction stems from the fact that in institutes like the IIM and IIT, there’s assurance of bright minds and ceaseless talent.
Engineering, no matter how many memes are made making a fun of it, will continue to drive the world forward and create more and more opportunities. Regardless of how boring or mundane a field it may sound today, especially in an age where there are boundless creative opportunities with perhaps just as much financial rewards, the progress of a nation cannot function in the absence of healthcare, intellectual, cyber, physical infrastructure, all of which are governed and put into place by engineering.
This is just one of the reasons why the contribution of timeless temples of learning, such as the IIT toward India’s progress in 21st century is enormous. And guess what? Recently, the famous IIT Indore discipline of a one-of-a-kind academic institute has added another feather to its cap by way of launching a tech innovation hub.
This major development at the IIT Indore will further drive more creativity and become a funnel of entrepreneurial expression in the sphere of tech, one without which one simply cannot imagine the prominence of a country in the contemporary world.
Key developments with regards to this IIT Indore hub include the institution of retired col. Sunil Datta as the CEO.
Giving a brand new direction to more start-up innovations and improving processes such as product commercialisation, skill enhancement, licensing, patents, and other pertinent activities will be one of the key objectives of the brand new IIT Indore tech innovation hub.
Another key objective, in addition to the above, shall be the creation of a self-sustaining eco-system, which can support key R&D projects.
Today, in every sphere of life, there’s been an increased need for digitisation and digitalisation, both of which will find new purpose and meaning at the latest tech innovation hub in Central India’s beating heart for engineering innovation and creativity- the IIT Indore.
This very hub also plans to offer several courses, webinars and programmes in the times to come. Now, if that’s not a great slice of news from India, then what is?
