A bid adieu to Y-18 PG batch
COVID 19 pandemic has disrupted academic activities and has taken toll on campus life of IITK. However, this couldn't deter the spirit of the pre-final year students in biding farewell to their lovely seniors. To relish those golden memories, Y19 batch in association with MSES organized a farewell party for the passing out Y18 batch on 16 Aug, 2020. The event was attended by faculty members of the department as well. During the event, they all shared their memories and laughs with the outgoing batch and finally bidded them goodbye by wishing them best of luck for their future endeavors. In order to make this event more memorable, few online games like tongue twisters, rapid fire were also conducted. As a token of appreciation, a small gift was handed over to the graduating batch.



Every year our department organizes a farewell ceremony for our graduating batch. This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and sudden closure of the institute the students were not able to spend their last few moments in the college. Therefore, MSES society conducted an online farewell for the graduating batch as a last get together on 16th August 2020. know more...
