Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs)
  • IITs are a group of fifteen autonomous
    engineering and technology oriented institutes of
    higher education established and declared as
    Institutes of National Importance by the
    Parliament of India.

3
  • IITs were created to train scientists and
    engineers, with the aim of developing a skilled
    workforce to support the economic and social
    development of India after independence in 1947.

4
History
  • History of the IIT system dates back to 1946 when
    Sir Jogendra Singh of the Viceroys Executive
    Council set up a committee whose task was to
    consider the creation of Higher Technical
    Institutions for post-war industrial development
    in India.

5
History (Cont.)
  • The Sarkar committee recommended establishment of
    IITs in various parts of India, affiliated to
    secondary institutions with the aim of producing
    not just undergraduates, but researchers and
    academicians.
  • These institutes were expected to maintain high
    educational standards.

6
Original IITs
  • As a step towards this direction, the first IIT
    was established in 1951, in Kharagpur (near
    Kolkata) in the state of West Bengal.

7
  • IIT Bombay was founded in 1958 at Powai, Mumbai
    with assistance from UNESCO and the Soviet Union,
    which provided technical expertise.

8
  • IIT Madras is located in the city of Chennai in
    Tamil Nadu. It was established in 1959 with
    technical assistance from the Government of West
    Germany.

9
  • IIT Kanpur was established in 1959 in the city of
    Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh. During its first 10 years,
    IIT Kanpur benefited from the KanpurIndo-American
    Programme (KIAP), where a consortium of nine US
    universities. Under the program, faculty members
    from these Institutions assisted the Institute in
    the setting up of the academic programs and
    development of laboratories.

10
  • Established as the College of Engineering in
    1961, located in Hauz Khas was renamed as IIT
    Delhi.
  • IIT Guwahati was established in 1994
    near the city of Guwahati (Assam)
    on the northen banks of the
    Brahmaputra River.

11
  • IIT Roorkee, originally known as the University
    of Roorkee, was established in 1847 as the first
    engineering college of the British Empire.
    Located in Uttarakhand, the college was renamed
    The Thomson College of Civil Engineering in 1854.
    It became first technical university of India in
    1949 and was renamed University of Roorkee which
    was included in the IIT system in 2001.

12
New IITs
  • Steps are being taken to setup eight more IITs in
    the following States
  • Bihar (Patna)
  • Rajasthan (Jodhpur)
  • Andhra Pradesh (Hyderabad)
  • Himachal Pradesh (Mandi)
  • Orissa (Bhubaneshwar)
  • Madhya Pradesh (Indore)

Admission
  • Admission to undergraduate B.Tech., M.Sc., and
    dual degree (BT-MT) programs are through IIT
    Joint Entrance Examination (JEE).

15
Admission (cont.)
  • Admission to most of the postgraduate courses in
    IITs is granted through various written entrance
    examinations GATE (for M.Tech.), JAM (for M.Sc.)
    and CEED (for M.Des.).

16
Admission (cont.)
  • The admission for the Ph.D. program is based
    primarily on a personal interview, though
    candidates may also have to appear for written
    tests.

17
Features
  • IITs receive large grants compared to other
    engineering colleges in India. The amount varies
    between Rs. 9001,300 million per year for each
    IIT. Other sources of funds include student fees
    and research funding from governmental agencies
    and the private industry.

18
Features (cont.)
  • The availability of resources has translated into
    superior infrastructure and qualified faculty in
    the IITs and consequently higher competition
    among students to gain admissions into the IITs.

19
Features (cont.)
  • IITs subsidise undergraduate student fees by
    approximately 80 and provide scholarships to all
    M.Tech. and doctoral students in order to
    encourage them for higher studies.

20
Features (cont.)

    special status as Institutes of National
    Importance facilitates the smooth running of
    IITs, virtually free from both regional as well
    as student politics.

21
  • Features (cont.)
  • IITs can create their own curricula and adapt
    rapidly to the changes in educational
    requirements, free from bureaucratic hurdles.

22

    and student representatives.

24
  • Features (cont.)
  • We follow the credit system of performance
    evaluation, with proportional weighting of
    courses based on their importance. Relative
    grading is preferred by considering the overall
