Dr V Ramamurti Faculty Fellow Endowment Lecture

The Prof. V. Ramamurti Faculty Fellow Endowment has been set up at IIT Madras to honor the legacy of the legendary IITM professor, who was a pioneer in research, teaching, mentoring and industrial consultancy.  It has been instituted in the broad area of ‘Dynamics and Controls Engineering’. Prof. Ramamurti’s expertise was in Machine Dynamics, and his work had broad implications from the fundamental studies in fracture mechanics on one extreme and mechanisms and controls engineering on the other.

Dr. Amrutur Anilkumar of Vanderbilt University spearheaded the VR Faculty Fellow Campaign. IIT Madras launched the Dr. V. Ramamurti Faculty Fellow endowment on 14th of August 2018. The event started with a talk by Prof. Amrutur V Anilkumar (1982/BT/ME) Professor of Practice of Aerospace and Mechanical engineering, Vanderbilt University, USA on “a new Paradigm for top class engineering education” where the talk focused on the path breaking Extreme Engineering Projects of Vanderbilt Aerospace Design Laboratory, which with an annual budget under $20,000, has propelled the national standing of Vanderbilt University.
