Dr. Anil Sawhney’s contribution has been invaluable in shaping the School. He is an epitome of great leadership, mentorship and intelligence. His unparalleled contribution in research, academics and training will always be cherished.
KT Ravindran, Dean Emeritus of RICS School of Built Environment, said:
“Anil’s spirit to face challenges heads on have steered us through many storms. We are definitely going to miss his positivity, proactivity and perfection.”
Dr. Anil Sawhney said on his farewell ceremony,
“My journey at SBE begin when it was an idea, from there to where we are now, we have come a long way. It was an upward journey all the while just like a takeoff from the ground, now the nose of this aircraft is at level while it’s gliding higher and higher each day. Great new things are still to come!”
His popularity amongst the students is such that they organized a big farewell for him the moment they got to know about this news. His message to the students was:
“I am an ordinary professor who has been put on a pedestal and worshipped.It makes me sad to leave you. It took me a lot of time and effort to think of moving on. I have spent one of the most memorable times of my life here and I have learned so much not just from my colleagues, but from all of you as well. It’s been a privilege to teach you. I would love to stay connected and hear about your further adventures, at SBE and beyond! “
