NEW DELHI: Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Gandhinagar will be hosting a live Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Open House session in online mode for prospective BTech students at 6 pm on September 15, 2022. The virtual interactive event aims to guide JEE Advanced 2022 qualified students and their parents about different engineering programmes at IITs, various career opportunities and help them better understand the IIT system to make informed choices, as per an official statement from IITGN.
Students and their parents across the world can participate in the online JEE session for free through IITGN Open House webpage: iitgn.ac.in/openhouse
The IITGN JEE Open House event includes sessions with deans of academic and student affairs, head of counselling, coordinator of student wellbeing initiative besides current students and alumni of the Institute, as well as a session with Professor Amit Prashant, Director, IITGN.
“It would serve as an excellent opportunity for the participants to get first-hand guidance on their queries and doubts related to undergraduate education at IITs. Students and parents are welcome to visit IIT Gandhinagar on ‘IIT Gandhinagar Open Day ’on September 15, 2022,” the official statement added.
Through the JEE Open House session, students and parents will also get to know more about IIT Gandhinagar’s values and culture, innovative curriculum, double major and dual degree programmes, liberal policy for branch change, scholarships and financial support, undergraduate research opportunities, international internship opportunities, on-campus employment opportunities, new sports infrastructure and arts initiatives, career development services, entrepreneurship opportunities, co-curricular and extracurricular initiatives, educational innovations, and student-centric initiatives, etc.
Sharing the purpose behind organising the IITGN JEE Open House for students and their parents, Professor Nithin George, Dean of Academic Affairs, IITGN, said, “Our experience is that prospective students and parents have questions like “Which branch is best aligned to my interests?”, “What are the possibilities of pursuing my interests even if I do not get admission to a branch of my choice?”, and “Can I do a BTech degree in two branches simultaneously? The IITGN JEE Open House is our attempt to address those questions and propose suggestions so that students will have better clarity in making their choices.”
Professor Sivapriya Kirubakaran, Dean of Student Affairs, IITGN, said, “It is very likely that IIT aspirant students and their parents may have many questions and confusion when they are at one of the most important junctures of their lives. With this Open House, we want to help the prospective students clear their doubts regarding various disciplines, programmes, course structures, and opportunities offered at various IITs, including IIT Gandhinagar, and encourage them to make informed choices about institute, student life, and the vibrancy we built in our campus.”
