Mr. Arka Bhattacharya
Director - External Relations at GITAM Deemed University

I had the great fortune of working directly under the guidance of Dr. Prasad Khandekar. It was a unique privilege to work under the guidance of Dr. Prasad Khandekar and Prof. P . Subrahmanyam, as part of a three member key committee working closely with a very large team of Senior Faculty Members and University Leaders to build and revitalize MIT World Peace University's ( MIT Group's Kothrud Campus had recently been granted University status by the Maharashtra govt.) Industry Academia Collaborations Committee, and I will always remember all the professional wisdom , guidance and insights they shared with me during my stint there. Managing an extremely large team of Senior Faculty Members and ensuring that MIT-WPU made a mark in its industry linkages was a thrilling task and there were many occasions where the sheer daunting nature of the task was made enjoyable only because of Sir's single minded focus on the next immediate steps that would move us further along than where we were the previous day. No matter how complicated or how challenging the environment , he was always able to maintain a clarity about where our efforts should be focused and directed next. I couldn't have asked for a better mentor and I am deeply grateful to Khandekar Sir not only for all his professional guidance but even more so for the immense love and deep friendship that he personally extended to me. I consider him a truly exceptional leader and motivator, and I wish to extend my deepest gratitude and thanks him!

He is a practitioner, who strives & strikes to bring in quality in engineering education with the blend of industry or institute of repute in various dimensions well ahead of time. Few initiatives worth mentioning are internships, projects, industry allied laboratories, academic programme collaboration in and abroad, that compliments students and faculty to be frontier in the technology domain.

I had an opportunity to work as a colleague at Vishwakarma Institute of Information technology, Pune. During these 07 years of co working and 05 years with his leadership in the department of E&TC engineering, many aspects of academic and administration were very clear. His zeal towards practicing processes for continual quality improvement through imbibing team spirit is incredible. All these resulted into tangible benefits such as NBA accreditation and other approvals from apex regulatory bodies.

My best wishes to him for all future endeavours in personal and professional life.



   He is a committed teacher, researcher and an academic leader.
Mr. HS Jatana
Group Head - Design & Process Group

I know Prof Prasad Khandekar since 2013. I was the resource person to deliver a talk on VLSI Design in a faculty Training program organized by him. I found him to be an energetic leader who always look for opportunities to give right and relevant exposure to his faculty and students. Looking at his deep interest in Low Power VLSI Design, I proposed him to get his own digital logic style chip fabricated in Semiconductor Laboratory, Chandigarh. He and his team completed the transfer of his design on our technology under my guidance and we fabricated the design successfully. The chip was tested and characterized and meet all the Targeted Specifications and Functionality. I am also delighted to know that Prof Khandekar is granted the patent for his unique logic style. I have witnessed his professional career growth and he rightfully deserves the position he is currently occupying as Dean of Engineering.

I wish him all Successes in his future academic, research and managerial endeavors.
