Why IIT Indore

Established in 2009, IIT Indore has witnessed unprecedented success across various fields, not limited to engineering.

Even though it is still quite young as compared to some of the global universities and other IIT's, it has been critically acclaimed across borders with its renowned alumni holding international positions. It is now recognized as the No.16 university in India. It has also remained within the top 3 places when the universities all across India are compared on the basis of Teaching Learning and Resources.We hold the no.1 position in research quality among all new IIT's. All these milestone have been achieved in a very short period of time, which has only been possible through its world class faculty and exceptionally bright students.


As you would probably know, the sole criterion for undergraduate admission in IIT Indore is the highly selective Joint Entrance Examination (IIT-JEE), considered the toughest undergraduate exam in the world with an acceptance ratio of only 2%. Thus, all our students are among the top 1% of India’s engineers.

Our Students

We, at the Indian Institute of Technology Indore (IIT Indore), the keen intellect of our students has been honed and sharpened by the skilled hands of expert faculty. Also, the stimulating environs of a new IIT have created opportunities for our leadership skills and innovative thinking capabilities to spread their wings in full flight, unrestrained by orthodoxy.

I have learned that, although I am a good teacher, I am a much better student, and I was blessed to learn valuable lessons from my students on a daily basis. They taught me the importance of teaching to a student - and not to a test.

Beyond Academics

In IIT Indore, education goes beyond academics. Our students have organised various events in our institute since the first year itself. Also, they have gone to different institutes and excelled in the events organised there. Along with the experience gained by attending various industrial excursions and seminars, we believe that our students have received a firm grounding in all aspects of professional as well as soft skills.

The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.
