Dear Friend

Glad that you decided to join us - The Guindy Engineers of the Class of '64 - in the cyberspace. With your arrival we hope that more group activities and interactions will happen; you will make them happen. Won't you? Feel free to share anything. Go back to the nostalgic Guindy years. Recall an anecdote. Tell us what you have been up to after you left Guindy. Now that we had a grand celebration on Jan 24, 25, 2009 to commemorate the 50th year our entry into CEG, tell us how we can celebrate the 50th year of our graduation from CEG. That will be in the year 2014. But we have to plan from now on. We are waiting for your mails.

The group is accessible to all members. If you do not have a yahoo id use the following: user name:; Pass word: onlyme@ge64. Sign into with the above user name and pass word to share your photos, documents of mutual interest. Update the database; add the details of batch mates about whom you know. Let us be in continuous touch through cyberspace. Cheers.

Here is a brief about CEG 1964 BATCH
....The 1964 batch of College of Engineering, Guindy celebrated the
fiftieth year of their entering CEG on January 24 and 25, 2009. About 75 class mates along
with their spouse and children attended the celebrations. The class had a strength of
240 at the time of graduation. The 1964 batch was the first batch of five year integrated course.
The celebration extended over two days. They spent the first day at a
beach house at Kalpakkam. The function was held on the second day at Alumni Centre. They have
contacted a large number of their teachers and there were a large number of them
present at the function on January 25, 2009. A souvenir was released on the second day
with photographs of class mates, “then and now”.

Prof. Panchanathan, the octogenarian Professor of Soil Mechanics was
the Chief Guest at the felicitation function on January 25, 2009. He complimented the
Alumni for their active involvement in a number of programmes organized bt CEG Alumni Association such as Career Guidance, Endowment Lectures and Scholarships to meritorious students.
A number of senior faculty members who taught the 1964 batch also spoke.
Prof. Jayaprakash Narayan, President of CEG Alumni Association,
College of Engineering, Guindy stressed the need to enhance the image of the Alumni
Association. He requested the 1964 batch students to contribute liberally to Building Fund.

Hence 1964 batch are planning to contribute substantial amount out of their contribution
for additional facilities at Alumni Center.
The class mates assembled after lunch break. The programme of self
introduction by each class mate present evinced a lot of interest. This was followed by a dance
programme. The programme concluded prior to Tea break.
The participants received a memento before they bid farewell. The
group photo taken prior to commencement of morning session was ready by the time they dispersed.
