CBIT Alumni Association (Chaitanya Smruti)
The CBIT Alumni Association, also known as Chaitanya Smruti was started in 1983 after the first batch graduated out to enter the unknown world. Since then, the alumni have kept up their friendships and bonds with fellow mates leading to a very strong global network of CBITians. The alumni association has an active Alumni board that is involved in aligning the mission of the organization and pursuing the short and long-term goals. The current body consists of senior and enthusiastic members who are willing to spend their time and effort for the betterment of the association.

Since 2001, the alumni have seen increased activity within the campus and outside through collaborative events with the college and the current students. We also started a partnership with the student body to organize the Campus Reunion every year on December 25th. With interesting discussions, innovative games like Treasure Hunt to help alumni rediscover the constantly-evolving campus, student cultural events and a sumptuous dinner, the events have become a tradition that everyone looks forward to. You can see pics from past reunions *here*.
Carpediem (2002, 2004, 2006, 2008)
Also, Carpediem, an alumni-sponsored event which started in 2002 has taken the concept of college events in South India to an entirely new level. Its an understatement to say that the event has elevated CBIT's brand significantly and redefined the meaning of college festivals. Students who have been involved in these events always take a unique experience with them while they graduate, have increased self-confidence, superior organizational capabilities and better communication and presentation skills.

In September 2010, the 5th edition of Carpediem will take place in the campus. Stay tuned for more information in our microsite *here*
Every year, the student body and the alumni association undertake social activities like blood donation drives, plantation drives and other events to help do our bit to the society and environment. Apart from student involvement, efforts will be made to increase alumni participation in such events through proper communication and advance intimation through the website.
