Admission Notices

The Indian Institute of Technology at Kharagpur, the first of the chain of six IITs, was established in 1950 to cater to the need for skilled manpower in the country. The idyllic, sylvan setting at Hijli was chosen to provide a cordon sanitaire to the budding engineers, where they could let their creativity run free. There was also an element of poetic justice in choosing a prison of yesteryears as the cosign for opening up new vistas to the future. From a modest start in the dilapidated Hijli jail building, IIT Kharagpur has been engaged in a virtually continuous process of development. The handsome main building with its majestic tower was inaugurated in 1956 and as Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru said at the first convocation address : Here in the place of that Hijli detention camp stands this fine monument of India, representing India's urges, India's future in the making. This picture seems to me symbolic of changes that are coming to India. Today, IIT Kharagpur has come a long way to its present position of preeminence with eighteen academic departments, eight multidisciplinary centers, a School of Management, a School of Telecommunications and several sophisticated central facilities. It is the largest and most diversified among all the IITs. In a study sponsored by the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India, it was found to have the highest relative employment productivity index among the IITs and is the top supplier of fresh engineers and technologists to the public and private sector industries. It also ranked first among the IITs in the production of science and engineering Ph.D.'s. IIT Kharagpur strives to produce scientists and technologists of the highest caliber to help the nation become self-reliant in its technological needs and to provide leadership in the field of technical education and research. Some of the distinctive features of the IIT programmes are science based engineering education, emphasis on complete education, continuous internal evaluation and flexibility for experimentation, upgradation and innovation in curriculum design.
