Hindi Kaksh

भारतीय प्रौद्योगिकी संस्‍थान रुडकी के शिक्षण की यह ‍विशेषता है कि विज्ञान एवं प्रौद्योगिकी के दुरुह विषय पढाते हुये भी यहाँ के शिक्षकों ने इस बात का विशेष ध्‍यान रक्‍खा कि यदि छात्र किसी बात को हिन्‍दी में अच्‍छी तरह समझ सकते हैं तो उन्‍हें वह बात हिन्‍दी में भी बतायी जाये । यह मानते हुये कि मुख्‍य उद्देश्य छात्रों को ज्ञान देना हैइस संस्‍थान के शिक्षकों द्वारा आवश्‍यकता पडने पर शिक्षण में हिन्‍दी का पर्याप्‍त प्रयोग किया गया । इसके साथ ही हिंदी भाषी प्रांत में होने के कारण प्रशासनिक कार्यों में भी यहाँ हिन्‍दी का अधिकाधिक प्रयोग किया जा रहा है । संस्‍थान द्वारा राजभाषा हिन्‍दी को सदैव प्रमुख स्‍थान एवं सम्‍मान दिया गया है। सितम्‍बर में रुडकी विश्‍वविद्यालय के भारतीय प्रौद्योगिकी संस्‍थान रुडकी में रूपांतरण के पश्‍चातराष्‍ट्रीय राजभाषा नीति का अनुपालन सुनिश्चित किये जाने के उद्देश्य से, 31जनवरी को यहाँ राजभाषा प्रकोष्ठ (हिंदी कक्ष) की स्‍थापना की गई ।
