It has been an extremely eventful month for us here at IIT Bombay. We had a flurry of online interactive activities for the students and staff alike. After the completion of the first month of the New Year, the online semester is also in full swing, and with the commencement of mid-semester exams this month, the atmosphere for the students has turned quite somber as well. Classes and exams continue to be online for the current semester.
January was marked by the beginning of the online Spring semester on the 6th, with a new glimmer of hope, of nearing normalcy, as the vaccine hit the market.

Hope you are faring well during these testing times.
Adeptly maneuvering through the hurdles of online proctoring, the Institute successfully conducted the mid semester examinations for undergraduate students during the first week of October. With the clearly laid out instructions released by the Institute for smoothly conducting exams in the online mode, complemented by ample support from the faculty members, teaching assistants, and students, the Institute managed to efficiently conduct the mid semester exams in remote proctoring format.
This September saw IIT Bombay acquire a new lease of life. It welcomed new PG students to the IIT Bombay family, with a flurry of 'online' orientations for the new entrants to enliven the atmosphere. We heartily welcome all the new students and wish them all a prosperous and successful term ahead.
