I am happy to share with you that I have taken over as the Acting Vice Chancellor of BITS Pilani from Prof. B. N. Jain who has significantly contributed in the last five years, giving substantial thrust and focus on research.
As you are aware, BITS is on the path of excellence in Industry Engagement, Teaching, Research, and Innovation.
As an alumnus of BITS, I am fully aware of the role played by BITS alumni in this great journey of BITS. A few areas where BITS alumni’s contribution have been substantial, are BITSConnect 1.0, BITSConnect 2.0, Practice School, Placements, Entrepreneurship, Sport facilities, student mentoring, etc. We are embarking upon major expansion drive/ projects across all three campuses in the coming five years.
All ingredient elements are in place - like dedication of faculty & staff, commitment of alumni, inquisitiveness of students, support from leadership and encouragement of management - to ensure the successful journey forward and to put the Institute in the next orbit.
As a fellow alumnus, I take this opportunity to request you to rededicate ourselves to carry forward this journey of excellence, on the BITSIANs' Day being celebrated all over the world on 7th August.
I would like to seek your guidance, cooperation and support in all spheres of activities.
Looking forward to your active participation,
Prof. V. S. Rao
