Prof.M.Santappa, Dr.N.Ramanathan and Mr.T.S.Krishnan have not only consolidated the gains but also made remarkable impact for the growth of this Institute. Dr.G.Thyagarajan added new strength both in terms of infrastructure and expertise and brought greater visibility to the Institute. He was succeeded by Prof.R.B.Mitra and followed by Dr.K.V.Raghavan.
