Topics to be added[edit]

  • Hostel structure
  • Mood Indigo
  • Techfest
  • Selection Procedure (i.e. JEE and others)
  • GC Sports and Cult
  • How IIT Bombay fares against other undergraduate colleges in academics, research & consultancy , sports and extra curricular activities
  • LAOTSE network of leading European and Asian universties
  • I would also suggest that a full comparison study of all the IITs be made.
    A little pondering would yield that each IIT is different in its own aspect, 
    even to the level that each branch has many different groups of researchers.
    It would be very helpful if a comprehensive listing be made so that undergraduate 
    entrants have a more meaningful exercise of their choice of IITs and branches.

I think that Mood Indigo and Techfest should be described in different articles, with some amount of description in the IITB page itself Lawliet 92 (talk)

Merging[edit]

I favor merging the other article into this one. Actually, IITB artice was mostly just advertising and cut and paste, so a redirect will do, IMO. I've added the redirect now, but did not remove the tag - go ahead if you agree with my move. Jens Nielsen 21:36, 13 March 2006 (UTC)

Merging is logical[edit]

I support merging of IIT-B into this article. It's more complete.

President or Director?[edit]

It should be noted that IIT Bombay does not have a title of "President" per se. Prof. Ashok Mishra is appellated as Director of the Institute. Shouldn't the page reflect that? --Pankajahire 16:19, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

Its correct, all IITs have a director ...ankitml —Preceding undated comment added 20:08, 10 June 2010 (UTC).

Moving page[edit]

It has been suggested that this article be moved to Indian Institute of Technology Bombay. (Discuss here) — Ambuj Saxena (talk) 06:25, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Template:Infobox Indian Institute of Technology[edit]

This article uses the template {{Infobox Indian Institute of Technology}}. This template was forked from {{Infobox university}} way back in 2006. The template {{Infobox university}} has been completely rewritten since then, and this forked template has not benefitted from these improvements. From the point of view of maintenance, a few standard templates are better than a collection of many specific ones.

If the template {{Infobox Indian Institute of Technology}} in this article were replaced with {{Infobox university}}, the only parameter that would be lost is |alumni=. (The Deputy Director could be included using the parameter pair |head_label= / |head=.) The number of alumni depends, for the most part, on how long the institute has existed, and so I would suggest that this is not very useful information. An advantage of switching to the template {{Infobox university}} is that the parameter |mottoeng= would start to work.

I therefore suggest that the template {{Infobox Indian Institute of Technology}} in this article is replaced with {{Infobox university}}. HairyWombat 20:43, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

Later. Done. HairyWombat 16:12, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

[edit]

The devanagari wording for the motto of IIT Mumbai is technically wrong. It should be [ज्ञानं परमं ध्येयम् = jñānaṁ paramaṁ dhyeyam (exact romanization)]. The Logo needs to be changed. Please contact the designer or the IIT authorities. How to contact them? -59.95.53.12 (talk) 19:29, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

Result is Merge

Merger proposal[edit]

I propose to merge all the material from Centre of Studies in Resources Engineering, IIT Bombay to Indian Institute of Technology Bombay. The minor material available in Centre of Studies in Resources Engineering, IIT Bombay does not merit an article, but here it would serve well. --Muhandes (talk) 08:03, 25 February 2011 (UTC)
