Saying goodbye. It's a part of the human experience that we encounter every day, sometimes nonchalantly, sometimes with great emotion.  The students of Mining Department bid goodbye to Prof. Nikhil Prakash, who had served at the National Institute of Technology Rourkela for two years, starting from 20-02-2014.

The farewell ceremony took place on Thursday, the 14th of January, 2016 at 5:45 pm. The event was attended by the HOD Prof. M.K. Mishra, Professors H.K Naik, D.S. Nimaje, A.K Gorai, S.Jayanthu, H.B. Sahu PhD students, research scholars and students alike. The 25 year old young professor was bid adieu as he left for better career prospects as a scientist at the Indian Space Research Organization, Ahmedabad; which is a very rare opportunity for a mining faculty.

Specializing in Geo-informatics, Remote Sensing, Environmental Monitoring, and Natural Resource Management, the professor held an M.Tech in Geo-informatics and Natural Resources Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology - Bombay. He had research experience in the Use of HYPERION and MASTER Thermal data for lithological mapping.

Though we shall miss him at NITR, a career prospect at ISRO is a rare and valuable opportunity and Team MM wishes Prof. Prakash all the very best for his future.
