Outreach 69 & 80 Building

For a long time, the institute felt the need to have a dedicated space for holding multi-disciplinary academic activities at regular schedules across the year. It only became a reality when the alumni of 1969 and 1980 batches contributed generously to set up an Outreach Facility whose name bears an imprint of its origin.

This fully air-conditioned facility serves as an educational resource primarily used for lectures, guest speakers, seminars, workshops, conferences, academic panel discussions, trainings, alumni reunions and other activities. The building houses an auditorium with a seating capacity of 210, a seminar room with a seating capacity of 40, a video–conferencing room with a seating capacity of 30 and a lawn that can accommodate 300 people. These rooms are furnished with state-of-the-art audio-visual facilities with a control room at the back of the auditorium, remote controlled LCD projector with a large screen and other portable equipment. These multi-purpose areas can be customized for any event and number of people.

The first floor of the building has a souvenir shop that sells myriad items such as caps, bags, mementos, mugs, table tops, folders, sweatshirts, ties, wallets, watches etc. with IITK logo and captions inscribed on them. One part of the building is used as a dedicated office space for managing day-to-day tasks related to alumni interaction. This office space also has a Students’ Placement Office (SPO) that handles all aspects of placements at the institute right from contacting companies to managing logistics, arranging for tests, pre-placement talks and conducting final interviews.

The Outreach Centre has been instrumental in holding formal and informal interactive sessions for students thus enriching their knowledge and experiences. It has also aided them in forming networks, sharing ideas, developing their interpersonal skills and several other academic/ non-academic areas.
