IIT Kharagpur, IIEST Shibpur to call students back to campus: Report
IIT Kharagpur will reopen for offline classes from March while IIEST Shibpur has allowed entry for third, fourth year students from tomorrow.
NEW DELHI: The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kharagpur and the Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology (IIEST) Shibpur have decided to recall students to campus, the Telegraph India reported.
While IIEST Shibpur has allowed entry of third and fourth year students from tomorrow, February 16, IIT Kharagpur will resume the process of calling students back to campus from March, as per the report.
The Technology Students’ Gymkhana which represents the students of IIT Kharagpur is reportedly conducting a survey on the number of students willing to come back to campus. It will share the data with the institute administration to help it fix time slots for arrival of the students and set up quarantine centres on campus.
Moreover, an official told Telegraph India that the institute is also considering resumption of hybrid classes. Dhrubajyoti Sen, dean of students at IIT Kharagpur, said undergraduate students would be called to the campus from March according to seniority, starting with the ones in fourth year and so on.
On the other hand, IIEST Shibpur chief warden Sudipta Mukhopadhyay signed a notice saying that a negative RT PCR test report is required to enter the campus. While classes will be held online as well, students with bad internet connections are willing to return to campus, according to the report.
