Organizing a virtual reality convocation due to the global pandemic, the institute made sure students graduate with the best of the memories and safe health at the moment. The college considered that the students shouldn’t be deprived of their sense of achievement, and pride in passing out of such a prestigious college.

Prof. Duncan Haldane graced the ceremony as the Chief Guest. He is a co-recipient of the 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics, and a Professor of Physics at Princeton University. Chairman, CEO and Co-Founder of Blackstone, Stephen Schwarzman was the Guest of Honor.
