Distinguished Alumni

The Physics Department can boast of several physicists of immense international reputation among its alumni. Not only have these scientists received their basic training from I.I.T. Kanpur, but several of them keep close contact with their alma mater to mutual profit. It is our contention that our students all over the world are brand ambassadors for the quality scientific environment they have encountered - usually for the first time - in I.I.T. Kanpur, and the excellence of the training they have received in their formative years.
