The NITR junta was shrouded in grief as the news of the demise of Professor Sanjay Kumar Jena broke surface. Professor S.K. Jena left for his heavenly abode on the 17th of May, 2017, following a cardiac arrest at his residence. He was being treated at the Ispat General Hospital, Rourkela on the fateful day, where he breathed his last.
A venerated professor of the department of Computer Science and Engineering, he joined the institute in the year 1984 and has been a devout contributor in the field of Database Engineering, Artificial Intelligence, Network and Information Security. He was currently heading the Training and Placement cell of the institution and was instrumental in formulating the new placement policies for the institute. His contribution for the institute has been invaluable and this tragic incident has left a void in the NITR family.
A condolence meeting was held at Bhubaneswar Behera auditorium on the 18th of May, 2017 to mourn the death of Professor S.K. Jena.
We sincerely pray for his soul to rest in peace. We pray to God to grant his bereaved family and friends the strength to cope with this irreplaceable loss and overcome this tragic moment.
