The PanIIT organisation was formed as an umbrella organisation to evolve a brand that would provide strong fraternity among Indian Institute of Technology alumni.
In 2002, some like-minded IIT alumni came together and formed a PanIIT Board. PanIIT represents over 200,000 graduates from all the IITs and has active chapters in the US, India, Europe, Canada, Australia and Singapore. The IIT Alumni have made a very powerful global impact in multiple sectors that include Public and Private Sectors, Entrepreneurial ventures, Social Development sector, Civil Services, Research & Development, Academia, and more recently, even in politics and public affairs.
The vision behind creating PanIIT is to help IITs and IIT Alumni achieve their full potential and be counted among the best in the world.
PanIIT conducts a conclave every year, and this year’s conclave will be held at IIT Delhi on 19th and 20th January, with Artificial Intelligence as the theme. Past conclaves have seen the presence of Government Dignitaries, IIT Alumnus, thought leaders in AI, and corporate honchos.
