The Students' Alumni Cell works towards ensuring mutual benefit of the Students as
well as the Alumni. The Cell helps the alumni in staying connected to their alma mater.

experiences and impart the knowledge they have acquired to the next generation of KGPians.
Also, with this interchange, they get a glimpse of the young minds of the nation.
The alumni community often takes keen interest in the Institute’s workings and the prevalent conditions.

with the alumni, giving them a chance to interact with some of the most eminent personalities
in all fields of work. It works towards making their learning experience more holistic.
