47th Convocation

Indian Space Research Organisation chairman G Madhavan Nair received the degree of Doctor of Science (honoris causa) for outstanding work in space research and for elevating India's status in the world of space technology at the 47th convocation of IIT-Bombay. He was honoured by chairman of the board of governors, Anil Kakodkar.

"Should we not educate and warn engineers and scientists coming out of IIT Bombay that professional ethics and values should not be compromised for short-term business advantage?"

This was the question put forth by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation managing director E Shreedharan at the institute's 47th Convocation. He suggested that IIT Bombay should incorporate ethics and national values as part of the students' training.

"I am making this suggestion based on my long professional experience, particularly in the context of the tragic accident that took place in Delhi Metro on July 12th when a cantilever pier under load collapsed causing death of seven workers and injuring 16," said Shreedharan. He said that a high-level committee concluded that the collapse was due to serious design deficiency.
