First Retirement from CSE Department
We had another bit of history in making yesterday. Prof. R M K Sinha had his last working day in the Computer Science and Engineering Department. The special thing about him is that this is the first occasion, a faculty member is leaving the department after superannuation. In the last 27 years, all the faculty members have left by resigning from IIT Kanpur. He belonged to the era when we had faculty members either shift from other departments to Computer Science, or had a joint appointment between another department and Computer Science. Prof. Sinha had a joint appointment between EE and CSE.
