     PEC Director Dr. Vijay Gupta resigns

Chandigarh, July 27th 2007, Tribune News Service

Prof Vijay Gupta, Director of Punjab Engineering College, has tendered his resignation. He has submitted his papers to the home secretary, seeking to be relieved of the charge by August-end.

Professor Gupta announced that he was quitting during a faculty meeting here this evening, which lasted less than 10 minutes." It is time to move on. I have offers from at least two leading institutes of the country, about which I will not like to disclose at the moment," he said.

Professor Gupta did his B.Tech from the IIT in Delhi and PhD from the University of Minnesota. His areas of specialisation are education technology, aerospace engineering and fluid mechanics. He has written at least 10 books on engineering design methods, heat and mass transfer and bicycles.

He attempted a number of administrative and teaching reforms, some of which landed him in controversies during his brief two-year stint. The chairman of the PEC, Chandermohan, who is out of the country, will call a special meeting of the PEC board of governors to start the process of appointing a new director.
