|Ganapati and I entered the College in the same year - 1955. Just a week before he left us all I had a long discussion with him on how we can help our old college. I am delighted to see that his vision and desire is getting fulfilled. My sincere thanks to Mrs. Sengupta for making this possible. |

|The Lab will be used for a new Masters Program in the VLSI Design and it will be used for Ph.D. program in the same area too. Moreover, it will be used for Workshops and Short Term Courses for professionals.|

|This is great. However, the idea of the VLSI Lab to be used for 3rd year students of EE, ETC and CST departments only for summer vocational training requires rethinking. We feel that VLSI design should be offered as an elective to the 3RD /4th year BE students and advanced research can be done in the ME& Phd. |

|Well done BEC Alumni.|
As someone closely involved with BECDU [not CST/EE], but Mats Sci Eng /Metallurgy/Chemistry, I see the real value of this venture. Hope the BEC Alumni will extend such activity to other areas as well including interdisciplinary Materials Ccience & Nanomaterials. Congratulations again.
