Welcome to Alumni & Corporate Relations
Krishna Chivukula [1970/MT/AE]

“I come from a middle class professional family, brought up in small villages in Andhra Pradesh, did my B. Tech Honors from IIT Bombay & M.Tech from IIT Madras, graduated in 1970. The IITs gave me a world class education at literally zero cost. Because of my IIT background, I was admitted to the famous Harvard Business School, where I did my M.B.A. Because of all this, I became hugely successful beyond my wildest dreams. I attribute all this to my days at IITs, my professors- Dr. K.A.V Pandalai, Dr. Damodaran, Dr. S. Krishnan and my class mates at IIT with whom I shared many, many memorable and much cherished moments. Also I am thrilled and fascinated by the initiative and imagination of the young boys and girls at IIT Madras, who conceptualized the Satellite Project. I guess this is what motivated me to contribute and will motivate me further.”
