    I shall request the Director-IIT-BBSR to introduce part time m,tech and ph.d. for working engineers posted in and around bbsr/cuttack and nearby. This will help in creating more qualified people . This may solve the teacher crisis in technical education a lot. Immediately after retirement from govt services at the age of 58/60, they can further give their services in this field for another 10/12 years.

    Please . Let IIT Bhubaneswar functions like other old IITs. Part time MTech ,PhD for working Engineers would degrade the standard of Education , particularly in research field. IIT should continue giving degree to those who are really serious about their research and these people will contribute maximum to the society. The part time MTech programme run by IIT Kharagpur is only giving MTech certificates to the needy, I dont think they are at any point at par with other regular MTech students.

    research in other engg fields particularly computer science should start .
