The Indian Institutes of Technology are institutions of a national importance established through an Act of Parliament. These institutes play a leading role in technological manpower development, and have research programmes comparable to the best in the world. The admissions to the Undergraduate programmes at these institutions for all Indian and foreign nationals are made through the Joint Entrance examination (JEE). 

Institute of Technology, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, is one of the oldest institutions devoted to education in various engineering disciplines. Indian School of Mines, Dhanbad, is the oldest institution of its kind in India. The admissions to the Undergraduate Programmes at these institutions are also made through JEE.

All these institutions are known for providing quality education in science and technology and for research in frontier areas. The environment at these institutions is highly conducive for

  • Building a solid foundation of knowledge,
  • Development of personality, confidence building, self-discipline, pursuit of excellence
  • Enhancement of creativity, motivation, and drive.

All of the above help to prepare the students admitted to these institutions for successful professional and social lives. Today, alumni of these institutions occupy key positions in industry and academia in India and abroad.

Why IIT ?

IIT today is considered as the World’s most elite institution for the studies of Science and Technology. Admission for the colleges in engineering in any state or university is second only to IIT. The selection process for the admission in IITs is gruelling. All IITs conduct a Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) for admissions to all IITs. i.e., IIT-JEE. A combined merit list is prepared for the admission to all IITs. The success rate for the students in IIT-JEE is less than 3%. More than 3.1 Lakhs students appeared in IIT-JEE 2008 out of which only 8652 were short listed for the admission for 6872 seats available in all IITs, IT-BHU and ISMU Dhanbad. These figures themselves speak about the volume of aspirants and the toughness of the competition.

In addition to the main Merit List an Extended Merit List (EML) is also declared through IIT-JEE. It is the list of candidates drawn up with some further relaxation in the aggregate cut-off of the JEE common merit list. These EML candidates although not qualified in the JEE they can seek admission to other premier institutes of India such as Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology (IIST) Bangalore; Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) located at Mohali, Pune, Kolkata, Bhopal and Thiruvananthapuram; Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology Society (RGPIT) Noida and Indian Institute of Maritime Studies (Merchant Navy) Mumbai etc.

Aspiring students of IIT have an advantage in their preparation for competitive exams like AIEEE, CET etc. Secondly most of the syllabus is covered for XII Board exams.
