Distinguished Alumnus Awards
IIT Bombay is recognized as one of the centers of academic excellence. The students graduating from the institute are of the highest caliber, who have reached positions of eminence in industry, business, public sector, academic and research institutions or as entrepreneurs. The institute had long felt the need to recognize the Alumni of IIT Bombay who have distinguished themselves in their field of work and done the institute proud. With this intention the distinguished Alumnus awards have been instituted.
The first DAA awards were presented on the occasion of Silver Jubilee Celebrations of the Institute in 1983. In 1996 the awards were made an annual feature and have been bestowed on a few distinguished Alumni every year since then. The award is given on 10th March, the Foundation Day of IIT Bombay. The award includes a certificate containing a citation, a trophy and an Uttaria.
Distinguished Service Awards
Distinguished Service Awards have been instituted at IIT Bombay from 1999, to be given to IIT Bombay Alumni who have contributed in a very notable and sustained manner to the progress of the Institute. The award consisting of a certificate memento and an uttaria is presented on Alumni Day.
The Distinguished Service Awardees are chosen from among the nominations received from our stakeholders such as Alumni and Faculty of IIT Bombay.
