Prof. B. Sengupto showing a 3D Model of the Institute to His Excellency Baron Dietrich von Mirbach, 1967

Administrators , Campus Buildings , Faculty

A large model of the campus was created in the early years of the Institute. We know that it was on display in the foyer of the Building Sciences Block. The Heritage Centre has several photographs in which the model is visible. The 3D model is unfortunately no longer available.

Baron von Mirbach (Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany) visited IIT Madras a few months after the Second Indo-German agreement was signed in New Delhi. The signing of the agreement kicked off the establishment of 5 laboratories. It also made provisions to complete the 20 laboratories which were in progress. The agreement was an effort to further the development of IIT Madras through a collaboration between India and Germany.

In the photograph, from left, Mr. C. V. Sethunathan (Registrar), Prof. S. Sampath (Deputy Director), Prof. B. Sengupto (Director of IIT Madras), Mr. Baron von Mirbach and a gentleman (yet to be identified).
