IIT Bombay Convocation 1999 : Chairman's Address, 6 Aug 1999 [cached]
I would like to use this occasion to pay a special tribute to your Director, Dr. Suhas P. Sukhatme. He has been on the Faculty of this Institute since 1965. During his career in this institution, he has received many honours and awards, bringing distinction to the IIT(B), becoming a Fellow of the Indian National Academy of Engineering and of all the Academies of Sciences in the country, and being awarded the prestigious Shanti Swarup Prize of CSIR for Engineering Sciences in 1983. Apart from his distinguished career in research and teaching in the field of engineering, I would like to salute him as a truly outstanding Director of the Institute. During his tenure as Director, two new schools, one in the area of Management and the other in Information Technology, have been started; both have received very substantial contributions from alumni and industry. I know that, when he will look back years later, Prof. Sukhatme will be proud of what he has started, in areas that are going to be profoundly important for the IIT and for national development. Through the years that he has been Director, one has seen a wholly dependent institution, fully supported by Government, transform to one that is able to obtain support on a significant basis through its own efforts, in offering services of value to industry, as well as through the Endowment Fund. He has made self-confidence and self-reliance the hallmark of the institute. Modernization of the infrastructure, particularly of the buildings now decades old, many memoranda of understanding in diverse areas with highly respected partners, the programme on continuing education, of such decisive importance as we move into the future, for keeping those in industry abreast of the latest developments, and many more solid, long-lasting; foundational achievements have marked Dr. Sukhatme's tenure as Director. Prof. Sukhatme will be leaving his position as Director at the end of this year, to continue with research and teaching in this institution. I would like you to give him a resounding applause to thank him for all he has done for what is his own institute.
Prof. Sukhatme's studies have shown that this is a grossly exaggerated viewpoint.

There is a "spectacular" increase in the number of girls entering engineering courses in the country for the last three and a half decades but northern India has still to catch up, Prof. S.P. Sukhatme, former chairman, Atomic Energy Regulatory Board, said.
There is also a trend among women engineers to go for higher studies and teaching in addition to working in large and small private companies, Mr. Sukhatme, the winner of Indian national science academy award, said while delivering the Daulat Singh Kothari memorial lecture in Mumbai on December 17, 2005, on 'women engineers in india'.
From a mere one girl student, who was admitted at the university department of chemical technology, Mumbai, in early 1970s, the number of girls joining engineering colleges has steadily increased and in 2005 it stands at 15% of the total admission, Mr Sukhatme said.
