The name of IITs is synonymous with excellence and innovation. The exchange of ideas and knowledge here, among the keen to learn individuals and the experienced ones like - postgraduates and professors, blossoms into solutions that lead to the betterment of the society as a whole.
The leadership summit aims to shed light on the challenges students face due to the rapidly changing socio-educational frameworks and put forward resolutions that would help the students excel in the face of this colossal paradigm shift.
By engaging in discussion and brainstorming reforms, we can keep up with the trends and lead the other institutes to do the same.

Even after the outbreak of the COVID19 virus has subsided, we have seen that it has been challenging to return to the world as it was before. Despite efforts to revive the lost offline experiences, the outcomes have not been satisfactory enough. Although the virtual world has its advantages, we can't deny the importance of classroom teaching, peer interactions, and senior-junior involvement. This lack of hands-on experience has deteriorated the social aspect of our lives.
What measures can be taken to encourage more and more students to be involved in cultural activities?
What components of our organizations (societies,clubs) need to be improved to adapt for smoother functioning in the current scenario?
In what ways can we restore the gap between specific batches owing to the pandemic?
Not all students are fortunate enough to experience the sophisticated professionalism across all fronts that we do. This leads to a growing disparity between the skills levels and future prospects of scholars. This hindrance is especially faced by students from tier-2 and tier-3 colleges across the country.
The onus of trying to bridge this gap falls on us and only by collaborating and exchanging ideas, we can provide equal footing and opportunities to many who deserve it. Mentorship by PHD scholars to these students from nearby colleges is one of the leads. The conclave aims to bring forth this problem :
B. Tech. students have a lot to learn, from their academics to general career advice – and a right mentor can indeed make or break their student life. A research scholar can very well guide their junior B. Tech. students, being more experienced and used to the college system.
One of the aims of the Leadership Summit 2022 is to further develop and strengthen this relationship between Ph. D. scholars and B. Tech students, so that the knowledge and experience of PG students can be blended with the enthusiasm and creativity of UG students to create wonders.
We've seen a major movement in engineering students' interests over the previous few decades, from core to SDE and non-core positions. Despite being a fascinating and insightful area, the core industry is short on competent workforce due to dwindling youth demand for possibilities. This could be attributed to various reasons like -
The necessity of the hour is to elevate and promote the benefits of the core industry, as well as the opportunities that exist inside it. We need to reclaim our place in the core industry by changing students' and hiring employers' perspectives and strengthening our “Make in India” policy. As a result, the main focus of this summit will be on the following points:
How can the immense potential of the curious minds be guided and motivated in the proper direction?
What steps should be implemented in collaboration with government authorities to pique people's interest in this field?
More than one-eighth of the IIT graduates move out of our country for further studies and better job opportunities that results in loss of talent and this impacts the nation in terms of economic development and overall growth. Lack of funding for research, degraded quality of life and non-recognition of their work are some of the reasons responsible for brain drain.
Our summit needs to address and discuss the further mentioned problems:
