(IIT Hyderabad): Indian Institute of Technology
IIT Hyderabad is part of history in the making. We, the
faculty, students and staff are creating a new institute, an institute, which in
due course of time will make an indelible mark in education and research. Though
we are young, we have a great vision, agility, commitment and energy to create
an innovative education and research environment that will be the envy of all.
Through our deeds we shall be the catalysts for change in our local environs as
well as the rest of India and the world. In a very short time, just about a
year, IIT Hyderabad has made significant strides. IIT Hyderabad admitted the
first batch of 111 B.Tech. students, and started functioning on August 20, 2008.
Three departments, CSE, EE & ME were initiated. The first year had its highs and
lows but was an exciting period that will be etched in the minds of the pioneer
batch. In January 2009, IIT Hyderabad admitted 11 PhD students. On February, 27,
2009, the foundation stone of IIT Hyderabad was laid by Smt. Sonia Gandhi,
Hon'ble Chairperson of UPA. For the 2009-10 academic year, IITH will be
admitting 120 B.Tech. students, 35 M.Tech. students and 10-15 Ph.D. students.
Though young, IITH celebrated all the student activities, and
held a cultural program, ELAN. A few students received international
scholarships and some are interning in Japan. IITH received nearly 1700 faculty
applications in 10 departments. We are aggressively recruiting faculty and
building up a highly qualified manpower. From the very first year IITH has
embarked on research and development; it received 2 funded projects: One on
"Development of High Energy Density Li-on Batteries for Mobile Applications"
jointly with International Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy and
New Materials (ARCI). The second is a joint project with Kieo University and
University of Tokyo on "Information Network for Natural Disaster Mitigation and
Recovery". IITH, through its Master Plan, has embarked on creating a signature
campus which will provide the ambience for fostering inventions and innovations.
A campus, that will possess the scale beyond existing IITs. We would like to
express our gratitude to the mentor IIT, namely, IIT Madras, for outstanding
support at all levels. The above achievements have been possible through the
energies invested by IITM at IITH. For this we express our special thanks to
Prof. Ananth, Director, IIT Madras.
IIT Hyderabad will do its best to offer an innovative
environment wherein your dreams will be realized: dreams for higher knowledge,
dreams for scientific inquiry, dreams for technology creation, dreams for
co-curricular activities, and dreams to change the world.
Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad will be the cradle
for inventions and innovations. It will advance knowledge and scholarship to
students in science, technology and liberal arts, and equip them to handle the
challenges of the nation and the world in 21st century.
To be recognized as ideators and leaders in higher education
