Chowdhury helped establish India's first school on quality assurance

The Subir Chowdhury School of Quality and Reliability is the first of its kind in India. It was born after academicians noticed engineering service providers in India do not offer quality assurance.

It aims to involve every student on campus so that quality assurance becomes an essential part of their training.

Chowdhury and IIT both donated $1mn each for the school.
