The Institutes admit students with these objectives and prepare them to become outstanding professionals and contribute to nation building. Today, alumni of these institutions occupy key positions in industry and academia, in India and abroad.
Each institute has well-equipped modern
laboratories, state-of-the-art computer network and well-stocked technical library. Teaching methods rely on direct personal contact between the teachers and the students, and the use of traditional and modern instructional techniques. Students live in a pleasant and intellectually stimulating environment with people having similar goals and aspirations, which is an exciting and unique experience.
These institutions offer courses leading to Bachelor’s degree in a number of engineering, technological and science disciplines. Integrated M. Sc. courses in pure and applied sciences and Integrated M. Tech. courses in a few disciplines are also offered by some of these Institutions. In addition, some IITs offer Dual-Degree M.
