In response to VC, Prof Ajoy Ray’s appeal to the Global Alumni in 2009, GAABESU created the first guest chair. The intention is to invite a recently retired or yet to retire renowned academician and/or a researcher, for the professorship for a term of 1-3 years. It carries an obligation to teach the students and/or help research-programs for Faculty and Departments but in effect there is no defined responsibilities; the scope may include mentoring younger faculty, under graduate and graduate students and advice on short and long-term inter-disciplinary research initiatives that are not always connected with degree awarding academic programs.
The BECA81 guest chair position would be filled soon. Based on the follow-up discussions with the VC and other stakeholders of Bengal Engineering and Science University, the academic needs will be known and accordingly the requirements will be established .
Since institution of this Chair in the next few months requires significant financial commitments from all concerned, any financial help is highly appreciated. We appeal Class of 1981 to come forward and help this batch initiative.
