Director's Message

In May 2016, the Union Cabinet gave its ex-post- facto approval to amend The Institutes of Technology Act, 1961, for corporation of six new IITs including IIT Goa — an institution of national importance. Subsequently on July 30, 2016, IIT Goa made its auspicious beginning from the Goa Engineering College Campus at Farmagudi, Ponda. This was a day to remember. To commemorate this historic occasion, a plaque was unveiled by the then Hon’ble HRD Minister Mr. Prakash Javadekar in the presence of Hon’ble Defence Minister Mr. Manohar Parrikar and the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Goa Mr. Laxmikant Parsekar. The first batch of 90 students were enrolled into three branches of Engineering — Mechanical, Electrical and Computer Science & Engineering. The entire teaching load was handled by faculties of IIT Bombay which continues to act as the mentoring Institute. As we progressed into the semester, we realized managing students in a makeshift campus and providing adequate facilities for faculties pose several challenges that required serious planning. One- by-one, all issues ranging from lecture rooms to housing were sorted out and we looked forward to the next semester.

On March 9, 2017, I took charge as the Director of IIT Goa. We set our vision on four key themes: Teaching, Research, Outreach, and strategic planning for our future. Our immediate task is to build our campus. At present we are devoting most of our time to cast our distinctive strength by recruiting bright young faculties and initiating research programs in new and emerging areas of excellence. The task is cut out for us for the coming years, and only time will tell how well we put our ideas into practice.

Goa has a rich cultural heritage—abundance of festival and assortment of attractions; there are so many places to explore! Therefore, since its inception IIT Goa has become a brand in itself, and I believe it will unleash its potential to accomplish great things in the future.

Motto of IIT Goa

“Vidya Vinayena Deepyate”

It has been an established tradition amongst educational institutions, in India and abroad, to have a motto that illustrates the belief of the institution. In India mostly, the motto is taken from Sanskrit, as it is the repository of ancient wisdom and knowledge. Following the same illustrious tradition IIT Goa has chosen ‘Vidya Vinayena Deepyate’ ‘Knowledge shines with humility’ to be the motto of the institute. It was very graciously suggested by Prof. Ramasubramaniam. The motto truly represents our commitment towards inculcating holistic education and human values in our students.

Since time immemorial India has been a knowledge civilization. The quest for knowledge has been one of the basic characteristics of the Indian ethos. Indians in ancient times undertook in-depth studies in areas of Metaphysics, Philosophy, Logic, Linguistics, Astronomy, Mathematics, Medicine and others. The history of our intellectual traditions is presented in our rich literature starting from the Rig Veda.

India has always had a very diverse and open intellectual culture from ‘Samkhya’ to ‘Nyaya’, from ‘Mimamsa’ to ‘Carvaka/Lokayata’. One thing that is remarkable about Indian knowledge tradition is not just ‘tolerance’ but ‘acceptance’ of diversity in thoughts, deeds and life style with humility. The civilizational values of inclusion, goodwill and humility were equally emphasised on.

“Namanti phalino vriksha, Namanti gunino jana:”
Shushka vriksha ca: murkhash:ca:, na namanti kadachana”

“Good (wise) people bow down (have humility), just like a tree laden with fruits bows, Unwise people never bow (have no humility), just like a dead dry tree”

Our motto is inspired by the same Indian knowledge tradition of hard work, sincerity, openness of ideas, intellectual rigour and, at the same time, our pride in its diversity, civility and humility. Rather than blindly following the plethora of influences from anywhere our students will be critical, they will discover their inner strength by inculcating the same principles of knowledge imparted by our ancestors and follow their footsteps in humility towards greater heights -

“May the light within you illuminate all”
