The prime minister will be the Chief Guest at the 42th annual convocation of the institute and he will give away gold medals to meritorious students, Director Sanjay Dhande told reporters here today.
Former president APJ Abdul Kalam and former prime minister Morarji Desai are among the eminent personalities who received the degree earlier, he said.
