Indian Institute of Technology Bombay

IIT Bombay was the second in line of the IITs to be established on 1958 after IIT Kharagpur in West Bengal. It was the first to be set with foreign assistance with funds from UNESCO. In 1961 Parliament decreed the  IITs as ‘Institutes of National Importance' and was accorded the status of a university with the power to award its own degrees and diplomas. Since then, IITB has grown from strength to strength to emerge as one of the top technical universities in the world.

With its campus in Powai, IIT Bombay is known to produce students of outstanding calibre both at the undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. It attracts the best students from the country for its bachelor's, master's and doctoral programmes. Research and academic programmes at IIT Bombay are driven by an outstanding faculty, many of whom are reputed for their research contributions internationally.
