Welcome to the Indian Institute of Information Technology at Allahabad, a
Temple of learning and innovation. Information Technology is a
technology that has been making serious headway into our lives mostly
over the past decade or so. During this time, handheld devices really
picked up and more recently, smart phones and tablets have taken the
world by storm. While these are the ones that regularly make the
headlines, we feel excited that many of our students and alumni are
playing leading roles in the global IT community through the design and
development of game changing applications and devices at Microsoft,
Google, Apple, Amazon and many such IT giants. So it is our primary duty
to orient our classroom teaching methodology and research in a
meaningful direction that complements this global technological
movement. We should not divert our attention from the core objective for
which we exist - we want to be a real center of excellence in the field
of Information Technology.
Perhaps for the first time in the recent history of our Great Nation, our country has acquired a dignified place globally and has been considered as a superpower in the area of Information Technology. Our young minds have risen against all odds and have proved themselves to have intellectual ability which is second to none in the world. To hold this position as a global leader, is not an easy task in this highly competitive and ever changing environment. We don’t have any time to waste. There will be lots of challenges which will try to divert our attention from our core objective. We need to face them and solve many problems.
My dear IIITians, this is perhaps the most defining moment in the history of our institute. Let us unite, work together and make everlasting footprints in the sands of time. I am sure when you are my age, you will come back to your Alma mater and will feel proud of the day you decided to be part of the technology phenomenon that IIIT Allahabad so aptly represents.
