Donate to EE

  • The EE Department has attracted several bright graduate (MS and PhD) students in the recent past to pursue research under the supervision of young faculty members of the department. The department is in its formative years, and in order to compete globally in research, students and faculty need to conduct high quality research with great impact. The funds towards this come from various government and private agencies on a competitive basis. Oftentimes, these funds do not support all the research needs of the students such as travel support for presenting their papers in international conferences. Further, funds towards contingency/working expenses are also limited. Therefore, there is a need to support research by adding resources to our existing funds. In addition, since this is a new institute, as of now, we do not have a very strong alumni network who can contribute. The department has started an initiative where we seek generous contributions from the public, and we will always remain thankful to the contributors. 
We request you to kindly mention that you are contributing towards the Electrical Engineering Department while transferring the money.
