Invitation for Attending Convocation

The Fourteenth Convocation of National Institute of Technology, Rourkela is scheduled to be held on 21st January 2017 (Saturday) at 10.00 a.m. in the NCC Ground of the Institute. It is a pleasure for me to invite you to attend the convocation and receive the Degree in person. The Institute also has the pleasure of inviting your parents and spouse (if you are married) to join us on this pleasant occasion. I regret that children are not allowed into the Convocation Hall. Please visit our website for further details.


There will be a rehearsal of the convocation process at 2.30 pm on 20th January 2017 (Friday) (i.e. on the afternoon of the Day before the CONVOCATION) in the NCC Ground of the Institute. Since the Convocation is a sombre event, it is imperative that the event moves without flaw. Only a complete rehearsal shall ensure compliance by all concerned. Hence, it has been decided not to permit a student to participate in the Convocation if he/she misses the rehearsal.


The degree recipients will have to register their names on 20th January 2017 (Friday) between 8.00 a.m. to 12.00 noon in the Rajendra Mishra Exhibition Hall of the Institute by producing any Photo ID (viz., NITR ID Card/Employee ID Card at the place of work/PAN Card/DL/Adhar Card/Voter ID). Participation by latecomers is forbidden to ensure that degree certificates are stacked in advance in the right sequence, and that there is no mix up during the Convocation.


Students reporting for attending Convocation are required to collect Convocation gown at the time of registration on 20th January 2017 (Friday) and are required to return the same in the afternoon (between 2.30 pm to 4.00 pm) of the Convocation Day. The cost of the gown is Rs. 1500/-. Students who will not return the gown, the amount will be deducted from their caution money and balance amount of caution money will be returned to them at a later date.
