Dear Friends:  Greetings from MIT!

It seems like yesterday you were teens,
so young and hopeful and full of dreams.
It’s hard to believe it, but several years have passed,
so let’s reconnect and have a blast!
At MIT’s Diamond Jubilee Closing Celebrations!


This year marks a major milestone — Diamond Jubilee Celebrations (60 years) of our Mighty MIT - Manipal Institute of Technology (formerly Manipal Engineering College before 1974) since it was founded by late Dr. TMA Pai of Academy of General Education (precursor to today’s Manipal University) on May 11, 1957.

In these glorious 60 years of history, our college has produced over 25,000 bright young engineers who have further established themselves in various fields achieving greater heights all over the world.

As Director of Manipal Institute of Technology (MT), I am joined by Mr. Prasanna R Kailaje, Director, Alumni Relations, Industry Liaison and Placements and Dr. K.V. Kini of MIT’s Alumni Relations to invite you all to come back to MIT Manipal for our Diamond Jubilee Celebrations during year-long activities started with Inaugural events successfully conducted for three days from January 26th till 28th 2017.  The Closing ceremonies with Grand Finale will be held on December 16th and 17th 2017.  All the Alumni are most welcome for the Concluding Ceremony function as well as any time to your Alma mater.  Come, renew old friendships, and share old memories.

In addition to renewing relationships, making new friends and reminiscing about our years on campus, we will host a class reunion parties based on year of graduation in December Closing ceremonies.  A very informative Alumni website (https://manipalalumni.manipal.edu/) with more details about the events is available for you to register and plan your trip.  Kindly inform your batch mates and intimate us to plan better.
