The IIT Bombay leadership team concluded its annual roadshow to the United States in the month of October. This year the team also added Canada to their itinerary. The roadshow this year lasted 2 weeks from 10th to 22nd October 2019 and the team traveled to 6 cities meeting alumni, corporate and university partners across the USA and Canada.
The major highlight of this year’s roadshow was the alumni connect events in 5 cities. The ACR team hosted Alumni Reunions in Bay Area, Seattle, Houston, Toronto and New York. All the events were a big success with over 750 alumni attending these events. This is for the first time that we organized reunions in Seattle, Houston, and Toronto. All three events were very well attended and appreciated by alumni in these cities.
Besides meeting alumni, the team also met up with some prominent corporate and university partners including; Microsoft, Boeing, Amazon, Dassault Systems, Vector Institute, MARS Centre, University of Houston System and University of Toronto. The team also visited Washington University in St. Louis where it signed an MoU for setting up a joint program on Aerosol Engineering.
