IIT Roorkee | 175 years

Leading the Future

2022 marked the 175th year milestone for IIT Roorkee. An institution steeped in history and legacy, this landmark milestone was an opportunity to document the journey of the institute.

From reading about the lions of Roorkee, to sifting through archival photos of the Ganga Canal, to learning about the all-time favourite University biscuits. This coffee table book had its fair share of twists and turns, but it left us with a lingering urge to visit and experience this quaint town.
